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.

When I made the reservations for the Harmony of the Seas Oct. 3-10 2021, there was no Delta variant. We were vaccinated and did not anticipate any problems. However, as the sailing date got closer, there were many more restrictions by the airlines, foreign countries, and the ship. In September 2021, details changed at least weekly. I completed all the required forms, checked and double checked requirements, and worried whether the cruise would actually take place. Finally, it was time to sail. From the moment we stepped aboard the ship, I felt at ease. All safety precautions were in place from masks to hand washing stations. Since the capacity was reduced to 1/4 of capacity, there were plenty of staff to attend to our every need. The ship was spotless and was constantly cleaned. There were no buffets as such; instead, we selected our food and it was served by the crew. Even our condiments were served which eliminated any extra hands on the items. I had always gotten my own coffee on former cruises but it didn't take long to get used to having everything served with a smile. There was social distancing in all the restaurants, venues, and common areas by the use of reserved signs. Elevators and bathrooms were limited to 4 people or 1 party. Everyone had a rapid antigen test before boarding, another on day 4, and the last test on day 7. The results were sent to our email. All excursions were through Royal Caribbean and we could not wander off on our own which was necessary to insure our safety. I did not feel deprived on the excursions at all; rather, I felt safer altogether with my group. This was one of the best cruises I've ever taken and definitely the one on which I felt the safest.

I write this review whilst isolating in a Spanish hotel after my cruise for testing Asymptomatic positive on my 2nd to last day .The on board care checks and protocol made me feel I was in the best place under the circumstances. Prior to my testing positive I was enjoying the by far best ship I have ever been on for choice in every aspect ,the service I know was obviously better ratio to suit guests but sincerity in joy of serving guests was so evident royalcaribbean.com should be praised for this. The food, entertainment choice of venues on board with its neighbourhood set up is the best use of a ship space ever even better than Dr who's Tardis. Being a 60yr child loved zip lining, riding the wet slides in the pool area and dry slide known as the Abyss were fabulous as well as riding a carousel 🎠 on board sadly I missed my chance to surf the flowriders . The shows we watched on stage, the aquatheatre and iceshow left us wanting more hopefully I manage to get safely home after my quarantine to be able to plan a future cruise 🛳 on board this fabulous ship p.s even not the best weather for the Mediterranean didn't spoil my sun worshipping wife holiday with so much to enjoy on board THANK YOU ROYAL CARIBBEAN
