Review summary

This is my 6th cruise and therefore i can compare.. Harmony is a big ship, like all oasis class, my favorite cruise was the freedom class. Oasis class seems congested, activites are time limited and line ups too long.

Embarkation

4 out of 5
Arrived 11:30 did online checkin 3 days before. We skipped the line, we had pre ordered internet and beverage, since we skipped the line we were confused as to how to get our souvenir cup, internet package, and room key as we only have printed seapasses..

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

Bionic Bar

4 out of 5

Izumi

4 out of 5

Same experience as any local japanese grill.. Theyre tricks our nice... Again i dont think its worth the extra 70 per person

Vitality Cafe

4 out of 5

Where i get my juice and smoothies, it would be nice if i could get these elsewhere so i dont have to go all the way to this place

Main Dining Room

5 out of 5

This is what makes it for first time cruisers.. Feel like royalty, the service feels like as if youre in a 5 star michelin 4 course meal. You get a waiter, assistant waiter, a head waiter, and a maitre d, menu is different every day with repeating favorites. Big shout out to assistant karum, waiter mukesh, and head Taylan for a wonderful experience

Chops Grille

4 out of 5

Its really good food with a romantic setting (dim) i really like their bacon.. Their dessert is way better than what is offered in main dining. But other than that.. I dont think its worth the extra 70 per person

Bar

5 out of 5

Bar staff work very hard and very curteous

Cafe Promenade

4 out of 5

Would be nice if i could order premium coffees elsewhere.. They also lacked cookies and therefore never really get anything to snack on with my coffee

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Lots of activities.. But not enough time

Flowrider

3 out of 5

I would like to give this a 5 star.. But it seems i can never go on it.. And the times open make it so its only available just before dinner.. It would be nice to have this open on port days since i could care less about ports ive already visited and enjoy a less busy ship

Beach Pool

5 out of 5

Not overly crowded like carnival.. I can somewhat attempt to swim, good thing there is 3 swimming pools

Entertainment

3 out of 5
Grease would have been better if it was the whole story and add an intermission.. I didnt feel invested in the characters.. Ive seen better performances in allure and oasis

Comedy Club

5 out of 5

Funny people for those who arent easily offended.. Its a comedy club, this was my favorite entertainment of the week

Aquatheater

Allure looked a lot better in my imo

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Very nice view of promenade.. Didnt really made use of the window, during wvents can barely see what happening as this cabin is in the end. The cabin is bigger than an inside cabin

Ship tip

Set a schedule of what u want to do.. Look at the daily planner and plan accordingly.. Too many things and very little time

Ports of call

Perfect Day At Coco Cay, Bahamas

5 out of 5
We did the thrill waterpark, not enough time to do all slides.. Alot of steps. The wave pool was nice to end the day.. Missed out on the free side, they have good beach and the swim up bar. Snack bar was very good.. Mozza sticks and chicken burgers. The buffet was good too.. It would be nice if we could stay longer to see fireworks and the night lights

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5

Port Canaveral, Florida

4 out of 5
Embarkation and debarkation was very fast

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

4 out of 5
We did the royal aerial water park excursion which was the cheapest one.. Little did we know its your own time do whatevee you want.. We did the zipline and the lazy river. The swimming pool and the kids waterpark was also included.. The only thing not included was the bigger water slides. Excursion is not needed as when u go out its alot of shops with couple places to swim for free.

Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

3 out of 5
We bargained on transportation to the beach. It cost 20 to get in, and extra for other things.. We were told were not allowed to play on the giant air jumpy thingies in the ocean unless we pay extra

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Very fast... Too fast :(
