Harmony of the Seas

February 2017 - Harmony of the Seas to Caribbean - Western

What a splendid ship !

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.

Norwegian Gem

February 2015 - Norwegian Gem to Caribbean - Eastern

Exceptional service

We have cruised on the Norwegian Breakaway a few weeks ago and were quite disappointed with the feeling of overcrowding, the policy in terms of evening shows, the cabin sizes, among other things. Nothing of that sort on the Gem. Cabins and balconies are quite spacious, we could attend a show on two different times, the service quite personalized, the entertainment very enjoyable. But above, the quality of the service was exceptional on this ship. Always trying to anticipate one's needs, with a smile, all personnel on board was truly great. A speical mention to Dan Dan, the cruise director, with such a sens of humor, talent, professionalism. We will come back to that ship.

Norwegian Breakaway

December 2014 - Norwegian Breakaway to Caribbean - Bahamas

Disappointing in some ways, satisfactory in others

We had great expectations regarding this new ship and it does indeed has many pluses: a great sport complex for young ones and young at heart featuring climbing wall, rope itinerary, mini-golf, a large soccer and basket court. Also, the food was excellent everywhere. Among other positive points, the ship is extremely stable. No seasickness there. Cabins are also well soundproofed and no announcement can be heard in the cabin which is nice for lazy risers in the morning.For photographs, a smart system never seen anywhere else. All your pictures are in single folder. This being said, the Breakaway is anything but elegant or classy. No big atrium with elevators as we see on other cruiselines. You have to make a reservation for almost all shows. Rock of Ages is not appropriate for families, which seems weird for a ship that is precisely meant for families. We were used to attend a different show every night on other cruise lines not on this generation of NCL ships. The theater is very small and bleak. No colors there like in all the restaurants on the dark and gloomy side.
