Slide into the adventure aboard Harmony of the Seas as she enters Royal Caribbean’s popular Oasis class of ships. Featuring a mixture of Quantum and Oasis class experiences, along with brand new additions including the line’s first ever waterslide, Harmony of the Seas will unleash your sense adventure.
Want to know what the best part of cruising with Royal Caribbean is? There is never a shortage of things to do; the hard part is choosing what to do first. With seven neighbourhoods, there are endless adventures for everyone to enjoy, from Central Park to the Royal Promenade, Boardwalk to the pool and Sports Zone, spa and fitness areas to entertainment places, and last but not least, Youth Zones, where the kids and teens can all hang out.
Perfect Storm is a tremendous trio of water slides. Known individually as Typhoon, Cyclone and Supercell, they’ll provide you with hours of fun. A challenge only for the brave, the Ultimate Abyss will take you on a heart-pounding thrill ride as you plunge down the bold and new 10-story slide that is the tallest at sea.
Whether you’re a pro or it’s your first time on the waves, don’t shy away from grabbing a board and heading for a ride on FlowRider. The floating mountain at sea, more commonly known as the Rock Climbing Wall, will get you a little closer to the clouds, or you can choose to strap yourself in and go for a ride 10 decks up and 120 feet above the Boardwalk – one word of advice, don’t look down.
The centrepiece of Harmony of the Seas Boardwalk neighbourhood is the colourful, handcrafted Carousel, where the kids will be all smiles, clinging on for more once the ride comes to a halt.
Despite all of the fun, it’s never been easier find a balance of calm and serenity, with plenty of fitness and enrichment seminars on offer. The Vitality Spa and Fitness centre is the largest spa at sea and you’ll emerge feeling renewed, relaxed and rejuvenated. Alternatively you can slip away to the adults-only outdoor retreat of the Solarium, where whirlpools, lounge chairs and a refreshing indoor pool await.
Splashaway Bay makes Royal Caribbean’s biggest splash yet, with slides, water cannons and waterfalls that will have all the kid’s going wild in the water without a second glance back to see if Mum and Dad are right behind.
As always the Adventure Ocean youth programme is complimentary and adventures wait for kids of all ages. Little ones can enjoy pyjama nights and story time, whilst the bigger kids participate in sports competitions, scavenger hunts and more. Teens can congregate in their own cool hangout area, where they can make the most of pool parties, open mic nights and new mates.
The most daring pool at sea, the open air Aqua Theatre is full of high diving and water dancing, so make your sure you head there early to grab front row seats – this is a show you don’t want to miss! The costumes are just as eye-catching as the choreography in Studio B, and you yourself can take a spin on the ice when the shows aren’t running. Harmony of the Seas will provide you with the skates, you just have to provide the moves.
There’s everything from family shows, late-night adult only comedy, guest entertainers and more to keep you up all night. Live jazz music plays nightly in Jazz on 4, whilst the vibe and music is red-hot in Boleros; you’ll need to be prepared to pull out your best Latin dance moves to fit in with the crowd. Think you’ve got the moves to take things up a notch? Slip on the dancing shoes and head to Dazzles, where you can let the good times roll as live music from big bands to disco plays.
Are you ready to spin, play and roll? The stakes may be high but take the risk just this once in the casino. With late opening hours, a wide variety of games and big pay-outs, the casino is a prime place for a good night.
Royal Caribbean’s notorious big flavours, originality and choice are as spectacular as ever when it comes to dining, so no matter how small or large your craving may be, let your senses take charge and lead the way. Harmony of the Seas also presents the brand new Dynamic Dining experience, giving you more choice and flexibility than ever before. If you prefer the traditional style of dining you can still select the Classic Dining option.
Like her Oasis class counterparts, Harmony of the Seas promises an elegant dining experience in her Main Dining Room. Also included in your cruise fare are other tempting options, including Windjammer Café, Sorrento’s and the Boardwalk Doghouse. Royal Caribbean’s speciality restaurants are infamous and you’ll find the likes of Wonderland, Izumi, Sabour, Boot and Bonnet Put and Johnny Rockets, to name but a few of those on board.
Royal Suites will be making their debut on Harmony of the Seas, bringing an exciting new level of luxury to Royal Caribbean. Choose between Star, Sky or Sea class suites and take advantage of superior service options, exclusive activity access and more. Choose a Star Class Suite and your wish really will become your Royal Caribbean’s command.
Select interior rooms also feature virtual balconies spanning from floor to ceiling, providing you with real-time views of the ocean and your destinations along the way. This innovative design has proven hugely popular, providing a budget friendly option without sacrificing those amazing sea views.
Royal Caribbean’s dress code is a no-frills affair, calling for a relaxed and casual approach. There are no set formal nights on board Harmony of the Seas, thanks to the introduction of Dynamic Dining, though guests who do prefer a more formal experience can dine in the Main Dining Room, where formal attire can be worn every night to suit the more formal surroundings and dining experience.
