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

We had the opportunity to enjoy an Eastern Caribbean itinerary on the HOTS and absolutely loved it! My kids were 5 and 9 and had so much to do onboard. We enjoyed the entertainment, dining and ports of call. I highly recommend this class of ship to anyone with kids are who are kids at heart! I am a travel advisor and my clients have also really enjoyed this ship!

What a disappointment! I was planning on spending around $4,000 with Royal Carribean on a cruise to Alaska. Unfortunately due to Covid i couldn’t do it. The reimbursement process is so bad that i would not recommend this company to anyone. Their customer service is unable to provide detailed transaction receipt. I used 3 cards to complete the payment and they missed $59 that it took FOREVER to get back. They didn’t credit the same amount on each of my credit cards and they still refuse to share the transaction detail of my reimbursement. People on the phone are arrogant and unskilled that i am almost embarrassed for them. I will never consider having a cruise with them for sure!
