Review summary

Disappointing. Very crowded. Hundreds of kids running around every day. Recommend NOT going the third week of January on Royal. Ship clean and employees very friendly and helpful. Dining room food was ok, not as hot as could be at times. Selection could be better. Windjammer very crowded and at times unorganized. Kids all over as well. Not able to use the Solarium restaurant this week, reserved all week for a special group. Too bad. Entertainment was great. Just get there early to get a good seat. Overall cruise was good, took three other couples and they have never been on a large ship like the Harmony. Probably will never do again. I had told them it would never seem like it was crowded, opps, that was a mistake. Oh well, now we know.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Pretty good for the size of the ship. Windjammer kind of confusing. Salad area backwards from most buffets I have ever been to.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Beds were very hard for me and my wife so I spoke to the room steward and she put extra layers of bed toppers under sheets and it was ok the rest of the week. Very clean room. Very noisy from folks next door with children on both sides.

Ship tip

Don’t go the third week of January. Way too many kids running around. Crying yelling etc.
