Also, have you sailed every ship in the fleet?

Where did you sail those cruises on Harmony?
I'm getting on in 6 weeks for a B2B in the Caribbean, and have already done her in the Med, so will be interested to see how different the dynamic is the second time.

Wonderful!
Was the ship 100% ready to sail on the 3 nighter or was it just exaggerated by the Daily Fail?

There was some minor things being attended by workmen but nothing to affect us plus RC gave us £140 cruise credit which we were happy with.
On our September cruise there was a lifeboat drill which went wrong and unfortunately a crew member was killed and others injured
We were stuck in Marseille the next day while health and safety did there checks so we missed a visit to La Spezia.
The captain was brilliant and gave everyone obc to the value of what people had paid for their cabin for the day.
In our case it was $300.

No we did not like ANYTHING about the ship - worst cruise-ship we have sailed on!
Yes to us it is the worst ship in the fleet - no other ship can and will have these issues!
Flawed designs all around the ship!

Fact is only 66% of the reviewers like the ship - that is a really low number!

Statistics are you enemy.. 65% LOVED it. 97 % loved it or liked it. You seem to fall in with the 3% bottom feeders.

It must have been a fairly surreal experience when the crew member died, was on Anthem when the child drowned, which was upsetting.
That was good of Captain Gus to give you the OBC, however.
We were all very upset.
Our Diamond lounge consierge husband was due to be on the lifeboat but fortunately wasn't hurt.
We all wanted to do something for the dead mans family but the Diamond consierge told us we couldn't but RC would take care of everything.
The captain was very generous and has all our respect.

I am really wanting positives but not negatives, but that doesn't sound nice.
