Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We mainly ate in the main dining room which was awesome! Our waiters Rajat and Jose were wonderful! Their service was amazing! We also ate at Chops and Hooks. Both were awesome as well!

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We spend a lot of the time in the Solarium at the pool and hot tubs. We did the water slides a little bit but enjoy the relaxing area of the Solarium better.


5 out of 5
We enjoyed the show Hairspray and both skating shows. We were scheduled for the Hilo water show two times which was cancelled both times due to weather. We were not upset because the seas were really rough and it would have been very dangerous for the performers. We did see this show previously on the Harmony of the Seas which was excellent. I'm sure this one would have been as well!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The dining waiters, room steward, shop workers, etc. were all awesome! I can't believe how everyone is so happy and friendly. Awesome staff!!

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship is laid out very well. It's hard to believe there are 4500 people aboard the ship, not counting the staff. It does not appear to be packed or crowded.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The room was very clean and the closet space was good! We had the same room steward as last year on the Harmony of the Seas, Rico! He is awesome!!!!

Ship tip

If you are looking for a more relaxing cruise, spend some time in the Solarium. We also loved the back of the ship on Deck 5. There are chairs located there where you can look out the back of the ship. It is really relaxing and enjoyable.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

5 out of 5
The port was very nice. It was very quick and easy!

Basseterre, St. Kitts

5 out of 5
The island was beautiful! We did the rainforest excursion which was beautiful but more strenuous than we expected.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

5 out of 5
St. Thomas is a beautiful island! This was our second time there so we didn't do an excursion this time. Last time we did the Coral Land and Coral Sea tour which we really enjoyed!

Perfect Day At Coco Cay, Bahamas

5 out of 5
The island was beautiful but the weather did not cooperate. It was very windy and rained a good part of the day. I wish the weather would have been better, which obviously isn't the ship's fault, we would have enjoyed it more!


5 out of 5
Excellent! It only took us about 1/2 hour to exit the ship, retrieve our suitcases and go through security.
