2017 - Harmony of the Seas
My family and I cruised to the Western Caribbean itinerary on the Harmony of the Seas stopping at Royal Caribbean’s private island, Labadee, Haiti in 2017. I was really impressed with the size of the island and the different beach areas you could go to, you wouldn’t know that 5,000 or so people were on the island at the same time. Buffet lunch was pretty good and they had the longest Zipline, and it was fun watching people doing it.
The other stops were Cozumel and Falmouth, Jamaica and both had nice shopping area right at the pier if you didn’t do a shore excursion. I used ShoreTrips and did a great Jeep tour in Cozumel and a Dunn’s River and beach lunch tour in Jamaica, both were great!
The children on the ship seemed to have plenty to do with the 3 body water slides, 1 slide you went down in a sack (The Abyss), the 2 rock climbing walls, and the 2 surf simulators. Dining options were plentiful and the variety of the food and service in the main dining rooms, were great. We did op to do one specialty restaurant called Wonderland and the experience was fantastic and I would highly recommend clients do that one for something different and special.
The ship is so advanced with all the upgraded technology and the RCCL app was very useful to know when and what was happening at all times on the ship. It worked on every smart phone whether or not you purchased the WiFi package called Voom, or not. We did have the WiFi service and it worked pretty well but found that you had to keep putting your password in several times a day.
I would highly recommend this ship for people who want to take the next step up from what they are used to in cruising!
