We had dinner on evening at Wonderland and it was wonderful.  The food and the service were the best!  We recommended Wonderland to everyone of the 16 people we were traveling with and the all loved it too! The other restaurants were very good but Wonderland was just very different and a wonderful experience!

Harmony on the Harmony

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was our first cruise on this size ship. We were concerned about 6,000+ passengers being on one cruise ship. We were amazed how the ship design accommodated everyone and it was not crowded at all.

The varied offerings on the ship provided for something to do for all age groups. The ship was only a few months old and everything was in excellent condition. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and made the cruise that much more enjoyable. The entertainment was excellent and the dining was very good also.

We have had similar experiences on Royal Caribbean Cruises and would recommend them highly.

Beautiful Ship Service Needs Help

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

Stunning Ship....Park Place Balcony Room great location.  Royal Caribbean seems to want to nickel and dime you to death on this ship.  If you are not paying additional for your restaurants the service is horrible.  $13.50 per day per passenger is added to your shipboard account daily for gratuities, so everyone from the waiters in the main dining rooms to the room stewards they simple do not care how fast or slow they move or how clean or dirty your cabin is they get their tips anyway. Poolside drinks are absolutely HORRIBLE at over $11.00 per drink.  If you are traveling with any type of handicap person in a wheelchair or scooter or if you should have a carriage be prepared to spend half  your cruise waiting to get on an elevator....spoke to several different customer relations people onboard about this situation and they just shrug their shoulders....there are no elevators at all designated for handicap and it is a BIG PROBLEM.  We first sailed on Royal on the Oasis of the Seas and it was one of the best cruises we had ever taken and although the Harmony is just as beautiful the service onboard certainly left a lot to be desired. The additional charges for many of the things offered onboard (we took a Sushi making class which indicated a minimal charge and turned out to be $30.00 per person, it cost us $60.00 for a 30 minute class on how to make Sushi) all this nickel and diming left a very bad taste and for those reasons will be not be sailing with Royal Caribbean again.

Its a Cruise

I'm not really a cruise person, but went with family. The Harmony is a big boat and has decent restaurants -- nothing spectacular. 3 water slides, and one potato sack like slide. It would be a decent place for families with kids, and people with limited mobility. I wish there was more time in ports of call so I could actually enjoy the towns/countries.

This cruise had by far the Best Entertainment and Options and Schedules than any of the cruises we had previously been. Would go on it again, and hope it has alternate stops. Do suggest they add a pool to the Solarium in lieu of shower.

Great Family Vacation

My Husband, kids and myself had a really good time.  Always things to do and plenty of time to sit back and relax.  I definitely recommend booking your dinners online before your trip begins.  Excellent restaurants to choose from.  They are booked every night.Happy

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

Had a great time, there was a lot to do & see while aboard the Harmony. The staff were all very nice and helpful, fixed any issues we had asap. The only disappointing part of the trip was the food... the choices that were available were good but things closed to early ( no snacks after your show as the buffet and other places quit serving at 9) the only thing available after that was pizza and pizza 7 nights in a row gets old. My suggestion: keep one side of the buffet open till at least midnight even with limited items (ex. a taco/nacho bar, salad, some desserts) Also there should have been more of the Coke dispensers, I know there was one on all the activity floors but there was usually a line and they weren't in the best of places. Otherwise the trip, service and ship was great.

Terrific Cruise with Attentive Crew

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

Our group of 11 had a great time on the Harmony of the Seas.  The ship is beautiful, the crew is very attentive, the food was delicious, the entertainment was amazing and the there were endless things to do on the ship.  My son has a severe nut allergy and everyone including the restaurant manager, chef, head waiters, waiter and assistant waiter made tremendous efforts to make sure that my son was able to choose what he wanted from the menu and that his food was prepared specifically for him without any cross contamination. This was definitely the first cruise that we have been on where we felt very confident that the crew was taking all measures possible to look out for my son's allergies.

What a splendid ship !

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was our 17th cruise and our 3rd one with Royal Caribbean. We started with the Explorer of the Seas which was quite nice, then the Anthem which was already several steps higher and finally the Harmony of the Seas which topped them all. Clever use of the spaces, never a feeling of overcrowding in spite of the 6000+ passengers, professionalism and friendliness of the staff up to the very last minute. Exceptional performances by ice skaters, divers, synchronized swimmers, musicians, bands, actors, singers. Two small minuses: the Windjammer and the Solarium Bistro were closed between 3pm and 5:30pm. Not even access to water, lemonade or coffee. And the loyalty program is weak. By our third cruise, on other companies, a bottle of wine or champagne would wait for us in our cabin upon arrival. Not there.

TIP THE CREW!! Don't be cheap! They work hard to make sure you have a memorable cruise vacation. A few bucks won't kill you It's big! You simply will not get to everything. Don't get overwhelmed - plan! Definitely get the alcohol package. Definitely try some or all of the specialty dining options.
