Review summary

Let me start by saying even a sub par cruise is still a cruise and over all is a better than average vacation. THe Harmony had many onboard activities but they mostly involved long lines or sold out quickly. Chair hogs abound even on the suite deck.

Food and Dining

Wonderland - Bartender had an attitude. He would not serve specialty drinks because he ran out of clean Martini glasses and his supervisor expected him to collect the dirty ones. He complained about this loudlt to the guests at the bar and waiting for tables. Once seated we waited 30+ minutes before we even saw our waiter. MDR - The headwaiter for our section had his hand out at every opportunity. We miss the "bread trays." Food was only a bit less than apetizing. Jaimie's Italian was wonderful. Chops was well done but the food could have been hotter. Drinks (alcoholic) were ridiculously watered down throighout the ship. Izumis was amazing from the foos to the service it gets 5 stars.

Rising Tide Bar

Service was exemplary but the drinks were watered down as they were uniformly on the ship.
