We are on a trans Atlantic crossing from Barcelona to Fort Lauderdale on the inaugural cruise of Royal Caribbean's Harmony of the Seas. We chose a balcony room overlooking the Boardwalk - #11723. The room is quite spacious - the king size bed is close to the balcony with two very small nightstands with no drawers. The bedding is very comfortable. There is plenty of storage space - room ...

After some twenty cruises aboard Azamara and Celebrity ships, we had an urge to try the world’s largest cruise ship, Harmony of the Seas. We are avid readers of Cruise Critic, and we really had no prior expectations regarding this ship. There are three companies under one umbrella – Azamara at the top of the list (in both price and quality), followed by Celebrity and then Royal Caribbean (RCCL), ...

More and more we enjoy the transatlantic cruises - sea days are a blessing for us so having so many in a row is a wonderful chance to kick back and truly get in relaxation mode. The one way airfare booked through RCCL is so reasonable that it makes the decision to do both fall and spring TA's a no brainer for us. Plus, we live in Florida so either the beginning or end of our journey makes it very ...

I will start by stating, Harmony is as promised, a magnificent vessel and with nine straight days at sea, we had plenty of time to explore. After visiting all the neighborhoods, stopping a most of the bars and dining at few of the specialty restaurants, she didn’t let us down. This was our first transatlantic cruise and definitely not our last. My wife and I have been on over 30 cruises, RCL, ...

Our embarkation went very smoothly as did disembarkation. Disembarkation was slower than embarkation but considering the number of passengers this was expected. The Diamond lounge was pathetic, even with 3 venues open they could not accommodate the number of members on board (approximately 2600) the Diamond Concierge had a few members that he clicked with and would spend the time socializing ...

Overall we really liked the ship. Some nice improvements were the showers, as a plus sized woman, it was nice to have a shower that was easier to maneuver inside, the addition of the shaver bar was nice as well . We felt the room had more usable space without the coffee table. On previous ships we bumped into the coffee table often and only used it for room service deliveries, on harmony we used ...

Great Entertainment. See all the shows but book online before your cruise and still arrive 30-45 minutes early for best seats. Great Speciality Restaurants. Buy the package before you cruise online. Main Dining Room. Crowded, slow service, food fair to poor. Plan at least 2 hours for dinner. No Ice Cream at the Buffet . Only one soft serve machine for 7,000 guests. Ran out of ...

Beautiful ship. Service was excellent and so were the shows. The ice shows, Grease, Columbus and the Fine Line shows were really good. For those who book balcony staterooms facing Central Park....be aware that there are no sheers on glass doors/windows to the balcony. Only drapes which means no privacy whatsoever so one has to draw the drapes and turn on the lights for some privacy. Not ...

I wanted to experience the largest cruise ship and do my first transatlantic voyage. Royal Caribbean Cruise Line has set the standard for awesomeness. The Harmony of the Seas is a floating resort and country club. It took all 20 days of my trip to experience the many dining venues onboard. They were all exceptional. It would have been very easy to gain weight on this trip but there were so many ...

Transatlantics are best value especially when booked early. Cabin had creaking metal overhead which made it difficult to sleep. Otherwise the cabin was fine. Room attendant was very pleasant and efficient. Johnny Rockets was best for breakfast because they serve omelettes and good OJ to your table; no extra fee at breakfast. Mini-bites also makes omelettes and is a nice out of the way option to ...
