We had a blast in our trip on Allure, staff is so kindly and professional. I have been working in the hospitality industry for more than 16 years and this was THE BEST vacation we had in a long time. Congrats to corp, managers and all staff you rock.

Would not book again and would not recommend. They charge you extra for everything. The ship is 8 years old and showing its age but still kept up nicely. We had a balcony room, and it was comfortable for four but was a bit warm. My family has not done many cruises and are pretty new to this, but we think we enjoyed our earlier cruise out of Galveston on the Carnival Jubilee better. This Harmony was nearly at capacity, so this did not help either. The value was not there for what we paid for and what we expected. The free food is ok and their pizzeria is equal to off brand frozen pizza. The buffet (Windjammer) is hit or miss and lots of the areas of the ship are off limits unless you have a suite. The ship was just so crowded and long lines everywhere. But of course you can pay extra to cut in line or for early ship access. My family's verdict is we would not do another Royal Caribbean cruise in the future and will try a different cruise line.

We just returned from our 7 day cruise on Harmony of the Seas, June 16-23. First of all, this is the largest Royal Caribbean ship we have ever sailed on. Weve taken 8 cruises, all on Royal Caribbean. Secondly, we have not sailed since 2018 and we were really looking forward to this cruise. Sadly, our sail was affected by Tropical Storm Alberto and it was rainy and rough seas for most of our cruise. The Captain bypassed one of our ports, Costa Maya, due to Tropical Storm conditions. The ship is beautiful but there are lines for everything... Dining Room, Windjammer, performances, even Departing the ship (we stood in line for 40 minutes as self assist departure. After a cruise spent primarily on the ship, we're in no hurry to book another one. Now the good things...the employees work very hard and strive to make your cruise perfect. No complaints there. The shows were excellent...Grease was phenomenal but a little raunchier than expected when sailing with kids. Jamie's Italian Specialty Restaurant was top tier. We went for lunch on a rainy day and it was a nice way to spend a few hours.

We decided on Harmony of the Seas for our family vacation. We chose it for all the activities it provided. We just got back and we can give it a good solid 4 stars. We are used to sailing Princess and they definitely do things differently. If you are worried about the number of passengers on the cruise with you and crowds and long lines…don’t worry, there is plenty of room. We have to admit that ease of getting on the ship and getting off the ship it was the easiest, smoothest and painless process we have ever encountered. They get 5 stars for this! There were not masses of crowds really anywhere and it was very easy to get around and to get on and off the ship (for excursions). They handled crowds well at all the dining venues and other than the first night everything went smoothly. Going during the Spring/Summer I can boldly say that we will never do again. It rained on us a good 60% of the time. And we missed Costa Maya completely because the ship could not dock (waves). Speaking of rain and shore excursions. There was zero people trying to help decide if this excursion or that excursion was still a go due to the rain. It was a freaking mess in Cozumel. It was raining so bad no one got off the ship at that point. The shore excursion people (which was only 1 and she wasn’t impressed that people came up to bother her). We did not know what we were supposed to do…especially given that the rain was coming down in buckets. We ended up choosing to do part of the tour or giving it a try. Now, we did not get a discount due to most of the activities booked where not available to us and that wasn’t right. And most of our excursions we were out in the pool when it was pouring down. But the dolphins were worth it. In Roatan, Honduras we had an excursion 2 beach snorkel experience. They put on a shuttle that was so packed with seas there was literally less than 10 inches space between seats to walk to take your seat. And it was even worse coming back wet and trying to squeeze through. The actually boat and snorkel were great. The boat guys were great. Equipment great. But the shuttle was a bit of a nightmare unless you are model thin. We found the food in Jamie Oliver’s restaurant phenominal. Never had such great cheese cake. The meat “plank” was amazing. We were not disappointed. But don’t pay full price. They will offer this at a discount as the cruise goes on. We got it for forty percent off. The MDR food was good. Wasn’t the best I ever had but it was always warm and solidly good. Certainly cannot complain about it. And the staff were great. Always there. Always with a good recommendation. WARNING; check your stateroom balance often. We were double charged for one thing and our son was charged for bar items he wasn’t even at (or ordered). I have zero idea how this happened but they did remove the charges. We were disappointed due to the weather and thought they would have some back up plans if people couldn’t be outside or at the pools. They did not handle weather related set backs well. But it was a beautiful ship. I am glad we had the experience. Royal again? Hmmmm not anytime soon.
