This was our first cruise since the pandemic and Royal Caribbean's Harmony of the Seas 3rd Caribbean cruise since it's transatlantic crossing. Pre-Cruise requirements: You will need a PCR/antigen test and if vaccinated, proof of vaccination. We got our PCR test at a local CVS on Friday and had results the next afternoon. They only give you a 48 hour window to get the test so get it early. Also recommend bringing a lanyard for your SeaPass card since you will use it often for drinks. Over the Counter Medications: *NOTE*: Due to COVID protocols, RC DOES NOT provide OTC meds for purchase onboard. My wife was stung by a bee on the first day and we had to go to medical on deck 3 to get Benadryl. Make sure to bring things like Advil, Benadryl, and TUMS with you. Embarkation: If you had the test and were vaccinated, getting onoard was very easy and seamless. This cruise had approximately 4,000 people and 300 kids (approximately 60 percent full). Key Service: I ordered the Key service and I'm glad I did. There was a rather long line to register, however, the Key line was empty and we sailed through check-in. Masks: With the exception of the Casino, masks are required to be worn indoors but not outside. Casino: More misses than hits with the casino. One couple hit a jackpot however the slots didn't pay out. Tried different denominations but not much luck. Food: We ate at Chops, 150 Central Park, and Izumi. Food was delicious! Service at all restaurants was fantastic.

I wanted to book their shore excursion during the Black Friday sale. I tried to do it online, but the system glitched and said we couldn't process your order. I thought it was a credit card issue and tried it with four different cards again. All cards got a pending charge of the correct amount but never got my order. So I called to book the excursion but the call centered had the same glitch! They issued an IT ticket, saying it will be resolved within 10 business days, but said they can't guarantee the discount price! THIS IS RIDICULOUS! I still need to resolve the five credit charges on my cards by myself later. I had a good time on the cruise itself, but their customer service and IT capabilities are ridiculously useless and lacking. Would not recommend booking their shore excursions. They are not worth the price or the effort.

This was our first cruise on a megaship. We have cruised many times on mid size ships. This ship is really meant for families with children. Many of the amenities are focused on keeping all those with short attention spans constantly stimulated. The Solarium is one of the few adult only spaces if you agree with their view that 16 and up is adult. We were in cabin 10319. It was a very nice cabin but located on the noisiest part of the ship - the Boardwalk. Not recommended if you plan on going to bed at a normal time. And if you think a balcony means a sea view, forget it. Not unless you pay extra. The food was up and down - some dishes were great and others were terrible. The crew is mosty Indian and it was clear from the Thanksgiving menu that the Indian chef really didn't get it. The pumpkin pie was not pie as we all know it. It was some kind of oddly flavored cheesecake. The hard boiled eggs in the buffet were burned - yes burned. The white of the egg was brown with burn marks on it. The hamburgers also had a very odd flavor. We had one at Johnny Rockets and that one was fine. Probably other misguided attempt by the kitchen to make it special but really it was just bad. Another example was the Beef Stronganoff. Just terrible. Beef strips with spaghetti noodles and some kind of beef sauce like you would put on roast beef. The top chef needs to go! The COVID restrictions were very strict but there were big gaps. The best example was the fitness center. In theory you had to be fully vaccinated to enter but no one was checking. We went nearly every day and no one was ever posted there to check vaccine status. Because there were both vaccinated and unvaccinated on board the vaccinated had their cruise compromised by the anti-vaxers. Why can't they do what Holland America does and just say no to the unvaccinated? Another crazy thing about this - they are nearly back at full capacity. There were 4800 passengers on board. Yet, the entertainment venues were still having limited attendance so there were a lot of losers in the competition to see the shows. As long as these contradictions in policy exist we can't recommend cruising RC. Finally, skip the Fourways show. Just four men in black suits with thick accents trying to sing pop songs.

I had a 7-day Mediterranean cruise from Barcelona. The number of cruise guests were limited and the health protocol was very tight all the time. It was relieving to have a holiday knowing everybody else was vaccinated and everyone used masks. The balcony stateroom we had was more like a hotel room, not a cabin experience at all. The service level was excellent on the whole ship and it was clearly visible that the crew was returned to their work only in August. I found the adult-only area Solarium the most relaxing place, with no band and no DJs.
