Review summary

The cruise ship itself is not so much better than the harmony of the seas. The staff is friendly. The food is not so great, granted they are cooking for LOTS of people. Our weather was horrible so we stayed in most of the time. But being that we stayed in a lot, it was disappointing that there wasn’t that much activities to do indoor. Not fair. And it’s the same shows/ parties playing over and over. Not much diversity in that aspect. DJ was great though. I wouldn’t do this boat again though.

This was the worst part. We barely were able to do anything due to the weather. Most of our trip was spent indoors.

Ship tip

Much more activities are needed for adults. Better food!!! Can’t stress that enough. Also,weather advisory should be noted before purchase. Captain pointed out that it’s normal during this time of year. We didn’t get to enjoy the boat OR island due to weather.
