Harmony of the Seas

January 2017 - Harmony of the Seas to Caribbean - Western

Harmony was music to our ears

We have been on Oasis and Allure previously so we had a little to compare Harmony to.  First off, the staff was great.  We had great service at the pool for drinks all day, our room attendant was amazing and besides one hiccup at dinner one night we had superb service every night.  We did fill out a survey at dinner the night we had bad service and received a phone call the next day asking exactly what happened and when we arrived for dinner that  night we  had 5 people falling over themselves to get us anything to make us happy.  They did this the last three nights of the cruise which made us feel a little bad but it shows how seriously they are taking customer service on this ship!

The entertainment was good.  The comedian was hilarious and the headliner was very good.  We went to Qwest and had a great time as usual.  I was disappointed because they scheduled Love and Marriage at 7:45 on Formal night when everyone wants to do pictures and dinner.  It was the first time on 5 RC cruises that I missed the Love and Marriage show and I was disappointed about that.

They added the Bionic bar on this ship and took out the Champagne bar.  I thought in theory this sounded like a neat idea but it is only neat to see for one time and then we never went back.  I would have liked to have seen the Champagne bar back.  

The Dog Shack had good dogs during the day and I did like it better than the donuts on Oasis.

We went on the big yellow slide with the bowl that you go around in but did not go on the other two because people we talked to said the water pressure wasn't high enough and people were getting stuck part way and scooting down.  The slide with the bowl was fun and we went down it several times.  The Abyss wasn't working correctly and when I went down it only a few lights were working so that was disappointing.  

My son still loved the Flowrider and resided there all day.  It is great to sit on the bleachers and watch during the day.

I was very happy that they moved the sexiest man alive and the belly-flop contest to the Sport pool and not at the Aqua Theater as it used to be.  That was a great decision!!  

The Silent dance part is new and was a lot of fun.  I wasn't sure what to expect but with 2 DJ's spinning music into headsets handed out to guests you get to go on the dance floor and dance to one of two music choices by flipping a switch on the side.  Very different but a blast!

Overall we had a great trip.  I would definately go on Harmony again, but after doing the Adventure and Independence I think they might be a little more fun and easier to meet new people.
