The Devil is in the Details
Harmony of the Seas Cruise Review to Caribbean - Western
This is our second Cruise with Royal Caribbean. Harmony of the Seas is HUGE, and has all sorts of things going on all the time. The entertainment was better than I expected, tho somewhat different in nature. The diving exhibitions were a bit like Cirque du Soleil acrobatics done in a water environment. Unusual, but very nice.
This is a 7 day cruise with only 3 stops, so we spent a lot of time at sea. There were enough diversions on the ship to keep the sea time from becoming boring.
The food was great, as one would expect on a Royal Caribbean Cruise. The Service was not as good as that we got on our last Cruise on a different Royal Caribbean Ship. If you eat breakfast in the main dining room, the service is much better well before 9. Once it gets crowded, the service seems to struggle with inadequate numbers of staff. Special requests might or might not be fulfilled in a timely fashion. There also was an absence of the less expensive wine on the later parts of the cruise. This was noticed by lots of people judging from the comments heard in a question and answer session with the Captain.
Perhaps our incredible experience with the wait staff on our first cruise last year gave us unreasonable expectations for this city on the sea.

Try the Park Cafe on Level 8 for lunch on embarkation day. The Windjammer is crazy busy that afternoon.
