Review summary

The Harmony of the Seas ship was beautiful!!! Well designed, easy to find our way around. A new way of cruising. The wonderful ship is very high tech and beautifully decorated. I especially love the Central Park area with the trees and the birds chirping and the wonderful wine bar. We had dinner at Chops Grille one night and loved it. The daytime activities such as rock climbing, zip lining and wave boarding were great additions for the young at heart! My 62 year old husband did all 3 and had a blast!

Unfortunately due to our busy itinerary, we did not attend any evening shows. Our dinners were very late. We loved going to the casino several evenings after dinner.

The only negative thing I can say about the ship was the massive amount of people at the Windjammer buffet at breakfast times. Because everyone wanted to get an early start to their days, The Windjammer was too crowded and several mornings we walked around aimlessly looking for seats that were not available. The food was picked over as well as the staff had a hard time keeping up with refilling due to the amount of people. We made do, however. I would love the opportunity to cruise on Harmony of the Seas one day again in the future. I know that it's home will be in Florida so I will definitely keep that in mind for future cruises.

Our excursions set up through Royal Caribbean were great however there was not enough time to see enough. Especially the Naples day. Trying to see Capri, Sorrento and Pompeii in one day was overwhelming and we only had 25 minutes in Sorrento after lunch to explore. Sorrento is the one place I really was excited about seeing so I was very disappointed. That area should have been a 2 day stay and Marseilles France could have been excluded in our opinion.

All in all we had a wonderful time and will not forget our special Mediterranean cruise on Harmony of the Seas.

Loved the new bathroom design with the glass door instead of the shower curtain that cannot be controlled! Good size room. Needed more storage space.
