Harmony of the Seas Overview

By Cruiseline.com Staff

Although it was launched in 2016, Harmony of the Seas is still one of the world's largest cruise ships. This $1.3 billion mega-ship comes jam-packed with high-tech amenities and adrenaline-pumping activities geared toward families, couples, and party lovers. For nonstop fun, Harmony of the Seas features a zip line, two massive climbing walls, dual surf simulators, and a miniature golf course. Feel the exhilarating adrenaline rush as you plunge 10 stories on the Ultimate Abyss, cool off in one of the ship's four swimming pools, or ride the Cyclone and the Typhoon in the updated Perfect Storm water park.

After a long day in the sun, refuel with health foods at the Vitality Cafe, or savor a big bowl of Jamie Oliver's house-made pasta. After dark, enjoy some quiet time in Schooner Bar, or catch an awe-inspiring live performance with the whole family at the Royal Theater. And if parents need some time to themselves, Royal Caribbean's complimentary Adventure Ocean club organizes educational activities for kids aged 3 to 17.

First time on Harmony by mctrader726

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Overall, not a bad cruise. We sailed in early August. Be prepared for lots of families with kids. Not a bad thing, it just changes the dynamic in the pools and public areas of the ship.

Fantastic Ship by michelleann4798

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Wonderful cruise. Everything was a 10! The only negative is that kids are unruly, running unattended. The ship doe snot enforce the adult only shows or areas enough. Lots of small children and teenagers running around the bars

702 Harmony of the Seas Tips

Jul 23, 2017

Don't sail on this ship if you want excellence in food. Beware of the duty free gimmick. If you purchase anything over your allowance the ship reports it to customs when you land and you will pay a duty tax. THey tell you it's a random selection but you are tagged before you leave the ship. Do all your expensive shopping in ports of call. This is dishonest to try to dupe you into making purchases.

We booked our shows before we sailed and my time dining is the way to go and as soon as you get onboard go and organise your off shore tours

Jun 24, 2017

Make your dinner reservations when you get on board at the main dining room entrance. Even if you don't show up for that time it will save you any waiting. The larger your party the more difficult to get a table for everyone when you want it. Harmony has about 3 sit down restaurants for free.
