Review summary

It was awesome my sister and I enjoyed our first cruise on Harmony and she's looking forward to another. The shows were great and there's something to do for everyone!

Embarkation was quick and problem free... We took a hotel shuttle to the port, arrived at about 10:15 AM and we were on the ship before 11.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We had dinner in the main dining room (Silk) twice and it was great, everything was fresh and the staff was great (we made reservations and had no wait). We had dinner in Solarium Bistro once (didn't like most of the menu but I tried it because my sister wanted to). We chose to have dinner in the Windjammer most of the time, we had plenty of dining options. We had breakfast at the park cafe once and mainly ate in the Windjammer for breakfast and lunch. No issues with dining at all.

Onboard Activities

Chairs around the pool fill up fast but I didn't mind because I always found chairs in the shade. We booked the escape room and had so much fun, our team worked well together and we ESCAPED!

Ship Quality

The ship is well- maintained, especially after the beach with sand leading up the stairs; within minutes they came around and everything was spotless.

We had 10:30 AM zip line scheduled but it was raining in the morning until about 11:30. They offered a full refund so we turned our tickets in. We walked around and went to the beach in the afternoon it was a bit gloomy and drizzled briefly a few times throughout but we still enjoyed the beach. The vendors are pushy but we still walked through and bought a few things. Please don't pay the price they give you, they'll lower it.

We had a tour booked and met in Studio B early before 7. We had luggage tag 1 and it took a while for the luggage to be ready for pickup (wish I could say how long but I don't remember). Once we had our luggage everything moved quickly, we had no issues.
