Fantastic first cruise experience, incredible service
Harmony of the Seas Cruise Review to Caribbean - Western
Review summaryWe had a fantastic first cruise experience. I am not sure if we will always have things so easy, but we are already starting to plan our next cruise with Royal Caribbean!
Food and Dining
This area was a treat. We loved it for breakfast, much less crowded than Windjammer. Great outdoor seating options as well. Really nice hidden gem, and excellent service.
Boot and Bonnet Pub
Nice bar with a secluded feeling. Great to get away from the crowds, we enjoyed it.
This was a fantastic stop for lunch. It's easy to get in and out quickly, grab some sandwiches and snacks for the road and snacking for later. We wish we'd found this one sooner, we didn't stumble upon it until Day 5 of our cruise.
This is a great feature, we loved all the bars around the pool. Very convenient.
Smoothies were ok, but nice spot to grab some bottled Powerade with your unlimited drink package for shore excursions.
Huge selection for breakfast, but it fills up very fast. Seating can be hard to find after 8AM, so try to go early.
This one was a treat. We strongly recommend the DX sushi combo for true sushi lovers. This is a great value for 8 pieces of nigiri and 8 pieces of spicy tuna roll. We also LOVED the spicy ramen so much that we came back 2 days later for dinner again. We did not like the recommended sushi roll (Futomaki roll) as it was a hot roll and not traditional raw sushi. Service is a little slow here, so don't expect to get in and out in under 1 hour.
Nice secluded little bar, quiet area to get a drink.
This was our favorite spot for a nightcap. The 2nd floor balcony made for a great spot to listen to music, socialize, and people watch. We loved this spot.
Nice food selections, service was a bit slow. The chips and guac were worth visiting for.
We did not expect to visit Johnny Rockets but it's a fantastic traditional diner with excellent quick food. The burgers were great, we had a #12 burger and the "red red sauce" was a nice touch. This is a great value for folks who want some comfort food.
The food was very good and the selection was nice. Book ahead, it does get busy.
It can get a little crowded, but service is fast with some nice complimentary snacks. It would be nice to have a little more selection the foods, but overall it was a nice option to have for around-the-clock snacks and drinks. The iced coffees are excellent and fast!
150 Central Park
This was our favorite restaurant. The meals and food selection was excellent and the service was top notch for all courses. We enjoyed it so much we had dinner twice here on our cruise. Strongly recommend the peanut butter tart for dessert.
While there are many pools, they do get crowded quickly. It would be nice to have more space, but obviously it's limited on the ship. Still, it's a nice amenity.
We loved all the whirlpools on board. We must have spent 10 hours or more in various whirlpools on the ship, they were a treat!
This was the common gathering area and life of the ship. It really made it feel like we were in a city instead of on a cruise ship, made us feel right at home.
We didn't visit any of the shops, but they were a nice selection and made for fun window shopping.
Port shopping was a bit hit or miss, but we did like having lots of options.
This was the place we spent most of our time on the boat. Lots of seating options, great for sun bathing and getting some quiet time. We also loved all the hot tubs so you could get away from the crowds on the rest of the ship. Highly recommend this area for couples looking for some alone time and peace and quiet.
Beautiful atrium with lots of seating for lounging and getting away from the crowds.
Seating is nice with good views all around. Love being able to watch Football on the big screens as well.
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Check your fees before you disembark. We had some errors in fees and had to go to customer service aboard the ship. Do this as soon as you can, do not wait until later in your cruise. Going to customer service on final night can mean wait times of up to 30 minutes standing in line.
