We chose this cruise to be able to enjoy seeing Europe. We took an arranged tour for the morning we arrived that was a Royal Caribbean offering. It was given by a woman whose English was hard to understand. We had one stop to use the facilities and take a few pictures. When we got back on the bus she did not have much to say. I promptly fell asleep and woke when it was over. Boarding was ...

I have been on 4 other cruises with all but one being on RCCL. I normally don't do reviews for my trips that due to all the negativity about the ship I thought it be necessary to give what I feel is a fair and realistic review of the ship and my experience. I have not cruise for over 10 years so my experiences and interpretations of various things maynot be accurate. Please understand that my ...

We have travelled on the Oasis, Independence and Allure all of which were exceptional. Therefore, we expected the same on the newest ship the Harmony. The ship itself is gorgeous. However, we found that the variety of shopping was much more limited than on the previous ships. For instance there was no liquor store, ice cream shop or dessert place. Sorrentos has very limited selections. ...

We have chosen the Harmony because she is brandnew and huge......That was a mistake! We never had the impression to be on a ship but more in a big shopping mall and on deck Disneyland! The whole ,of my life, I have been working at sea and I have never seen a vessel where the lifejackets are NOT in the cabin. My stateroom was on deck 12 and in case of emergency I should go to deck 5 (Royal ...

We have cruised twice before with Carnival and P & O. Each time we had heard how much better Royal Caribbean were, so we were super excited to get aboard the ship. My wife and I travelled with our 18 year old daughter and 17 year old son. We picked this ship mainly for the variety of things to do on it to interest them. The good points: Embarkation was a breeze. Probably about 30 mins max ...

Being a curious cruiser I wanted to get to know the ship. It was just too crowded, everywhere. Just too many people even for a ship of this size. You had to qeue up most everywhere. Except for the paid restaurants the service was poor. Cleanliness in Windjammer and pool-side was poor. Stuff were mostly friendly. Variety of food in the free restaurants like Windjammer and Solarium ...

We thought we would try a new big ship to see what it was like. We had just got off the Celebrity Reflection for a cruise around the Greek Islands and seeing we were in Europe we took the opportunity to try this new ship. Embarkation went smoothly and we were on board within 10 mins which was great. The ship is amazing and beautiful. We were lucky to get an upgrade to a balcony and the ...

The chose this particular cruise because of the quality of the ship and the itinerary. We were not disappointed with that. I cruised on Oasis two years and thought I knew exactly what to expect from the ship. However, Harmony is even better than Oasis, especially for teens. The water slides and Abyss were big hits with my children. Other than the ship itself, everything was worse as ...

We were a family group of 12 with ages from 5 - 74. This is the 12th ocean cruise for me and my husband and the 5th with RCL. We had sailed before with Princess, RCL, NCL and Oceania. The ship is beautiful and the atmosphere is very vibrant. Because of the amount of activities onboard, it is very suitable for family reunion. However, the service level was very mediocre. Main Dining ...
