In keeping with tradition, we set out on our grandest “Drink Around the Ship” to date during our recent 7-night cruise on Harmony of the Seas. Making it a point to sample every bar menu and get at least one drink at every bar on this largest cruise ship in the world was no easy task. But, over the course of the week, we made the rounds to all the Harmony of the Seas Bars and have the photos to prove it.

Follow along with our “Drink Around the Ship” extravaganza on Harmony of the Seas with this complete photo review. It you are looking for all the BRAND NEW BAR MENUS, we have you covered too.

Harmony of the Seas Bars – Deck 4

Located on deck 4 in Entertainment Place are The Attic and Jazz on 4. These venues offer the new standard bar menu which includes cocktails arranged into a new tiered pricing structure. The “signature” selections are $15, which is $2 over the current allotment of the Deluxe Drink Package, but all other beverages are within the included price.

The Attic hosts comedy shows throughout the cruise, offered at 2 different time slots on most nights. These shows in The Attic are available for pre-booking on your cruise planner prior to sailing, and it is highly recommended that you make a reservation.

This venue has a bar and waitstaff prior to the show, but service is limited once the show begins. So, you will certainly want to order a few drinks while you laugh it up at the show. Our drinks of choice this evening were a Long Island Iced Tea and a Spiced Rum Runner.

Jazz on 4 is a small venue offering live jazz music and throwback décor. This quaint venue is a nice place to relax and unwind after a long day of fun in the sun. While enjoying the tunes, Jazz on 4 has waitstaff on hand to grab you your drinks of choice.

Harmony of the Seas BarsHarmony of the Seas Bars – Jazz on 4

While listening to some cool jazz by the Perry Phillips Quartet, we sampled some drinks off the new bar menus, the Nutty Scotsman and Appletini.

Also located on deck 4 are the Casino Royale and Studio B which offer bar service as well. So, don’t forget to grab a drink while testing your luck or while enjoying the ice shows, 1887 and iSkate. Casino Royale does have a full bar; however, unlike other ships, Studio B only has a small make-shift bar inside.

Harmony of the Seas BarsHarmony of the Seas Bars – Casino Bar

The largest of the entertainment offerings in Entertainment Place is the Royal Theater, located on Decks 4 and 5. The Royal Theater is home to the Broadway show Grease, the production show Columbus, The Musical!, and other various entertainment options like the popular Love and Marriage show. With an abundance of waitstaff and a small make-shift bar, be sure to order a drink during these performances. Cheers to the evening!

Harmony of the Seas Bars – Deck 5

Deck 5 is the Royal Promenade, the central hub of the ship with plenty of bars and lounges. You will certainly find yourself spending a lot of time on the Royal Promenade especially with all the exciting activities that occur here including the 90’s Street Party and the Let’s Celebrate Parade.

On Air is the karaoke bar on Harmony of the Seas, which also serves up the standard bar menu. We enjoyed a drink here while watching karaoke one evening of the cruise. We were pretty boring and decided to stick with some basic drinks this evening.

Harmony of the Seas BarsHarmony of the Seas Bars – On Air

Boleros, found on many Royal Caribbean ships, is the Latin themed bar and lounge. Whether you choose to relax while listening to some Latin music or partake in a dance class here, be sure to order some drinks from this NEW specialty bar menu.

Though we did miss our usual go-to cocktails from the old specialty menu, we did enjoy the new spruced up menu and drink options at Boleros. We tried the South Beach Iced Tea and the Coconut mojito this evening, and they were both quite tasty. Unfortunately, we never made it back to sample any of the other new menu choices. Oh well, there’s always next time!

Harmony of the Seas BarsHarmony of the Seas Bars

Boot and Bonnet Pub is the place to be for all the beer lovers to throw back a few pints and enjoy some live music. Centrally located on the Promenade, this is also a great spot for people watching. This venue offers a specialty menu with various beer inspired cocktails.

Harmony of the Seas Eastern Caribbean Cruise ReviewHarmony of the Seas Bars – Boot and Bonnet Pub

Since we have yet to find a cocktail on the pub menu that we enjoy, DB went with the recommendation of the waiter and ordered a Belgium Sour.  And, since I don’t like beer, I went in the complete opposite direction and ordered a Cosmo.

Rising Tide Bar is a unique bar experience that everyone must try at least once when sailing on Harmony of the Seas. This spaceship-like capsule ascends and descends 3 floors from the Promenade to Central Park offering some great aerial views. The Rising Tide Bar also offers a specialty cocktail menu for you to enjoy along the ride.

Unfortunately, we were a bit disappointed in the changes to the specialty cocktail menu at this location. The Rising Tide menu now features mostly champagne and champagne based cocktails. Possibly because the Champagne Bar has been replaced with the Bionic Bar? During our visit, we sipped a Kir Royale and Bellini.

Harmony of the Seas BarsHarmony of the Seas Bars

Bionic Bar, first appearing on Quantum class ships, has made its debut on Harmony of the Seas. This futuristic bar set-up allows you to order a drink from an iPad and watch robotic arms craft the drink right in front of you. Here, you have the option to order a classic cocktail, one of the specialty cocktails, or create your own concoction (all currently included in the drink package). Whatever you decide to order, it will certainly be picture-worthy.

Harmony of the Seas NeighborhoodsHarmony of the Seas Bars – Bionic Bar

During our visit to Bionic Bar, we sampled a Bionic Tea and Apple Blast. Both drinks were just average in terms of flavor, and there were still kinks in the technology like we experienced on Quantum of the Seas and Anthem of the Seas. Needless to say, this was our only trip to this bar.

Harmony of the Seas Bars – Deck 6

Schooner Bar is the Royal Caribbean nautically themed bar that is a staple on most ships. Even though it is located somewhat away from the action on Oasis-class ships, this venue is home to activities including trivia during the day as well as live piano music at night.

Harmony of the Seas BarsHarmony of the Seas Bars – Schooner Bar

This bar’s specialty menu is the only menu on Harmony of the Seas that appears unchanged (thus far). It continues to offer classic and timeless cocktails, including DB’s favorite sidecar and my new found lavender daiquiri, with all drink prices still included in the beverage package.

Harmony of the Seas BarsHarmony of the Seas Bars

Sabor is your Mexican restaurant and cantina at sea. Located in the Boardwalk, Sabor has a small bar off to one side of the restaurant. So whether you just want to enjoy a handcrafted margarita or want to order some a la carte appetizers or desserts as well, you will definitely want to spend some time indulging here. All margaritas are currently covered in the deluxe beverage package.

Harmony of the Seas BarsHarmony of the Seas Bars – Sabor

We may have made a few trips here over the course of the week to sample quite a few of the menu choices. Some of our favorites were the Grand Sabor margarita, Jalapeno-Cucumber margarita, and the Aztec martini.

While spending your day on the Boardwalk, there are also select beer offerings available at the Boardwalk Dog House to enjoy with your dogs. Or, if you are in the mood for a non-alcoholic beverage, you can grab a handcrafted brew at Starbucks or milkshake at Johnny Rockets. Unfortunately, Starbucks beverages or milkshakes are not covered in any drink packages.

Harmony of the Seas Bars – Deck 8

Vintages, Royal Caribbean’s wine bar, is located outside in Central Park on Harmony of the Seas. This is the perfect spot to enjoy a glass of vino day or night. This quiet and less crowded venue offers a variety of wine selections and a la carte tapas from Jamie’s Italian if you get hungry.

Harmony of the Seas BarsHarmony of the Seas Bars – Vintages

Neither of us are wine connoisseurs, so we got the only glass of Riesling and Cabernet covered in the drink package. If you are a wine snob, then you might end up paying extra here as many of the selections are over the covered amount of the drink package or are available in bottles only.

Harmony of the Seas BarsHarmony of the Seas Bars

Trellis Bar is also located in Central Park on Harmony of the Seas. This venue offers a relaxed, outdoor scene to grab a drink and enjoy the serenity of the Central Park neighborhood day or night.

Harmony of the Seas BarsHarmony of the Seas Bars – Trellis Bar

We stopped in at the Trellis Bar one evening for a pre-dinner cocktail. I went with a classic Cosmo, and DB splurged a bit ordering one of the signature selections at $15, the Royal Iced Tea. According to him, the drink was worth the $2 upcharge.

Harmony of the Seas BarsHarmony of the Seas Bars

Dazzles is a 2-story venue that hosts plenty of dancing and live music throughout the cruise. With plush seating, a center stage, dance floor, and bar, Dazzles is a great spot to spend your evenings enjoying a variety of musical genres performed by the house band.

Harmony of the Seas Eastern Caribbean Cruise ReviewHarmony of the Seas Bars – Dazzles

Dazzles offers a full bar, waitstaff, and the standard bar menu. We visited this location one evening to enjoy some live music and cocktails. This evening I ordered a Planter’s Punch, and DB decided to splurge again and order the Gentleman’s Sidecar, costing $2 over the drink package allotment. Does he think we are made of money? Good thing the bartender forgot to charge us.

Harmony of the Seas Bars – Deck 12

Wonderland is an imaginative culinary experience that first debuted on Quantum-class ships. On Harmony of the Seas, this restaurant is a 2-story venue with a bar. So, even if you do not want to venture down the rabbit hole for a truly unique dining experience, you should at least stop in for a creative cocktail.

Harmony of the Seas BarsHarmony of the Seas Bars – Wonderland

We dined here on night 2 of our cruise but also made it a point to stop in at the rather remote location on deck 12 another evening to sample all of the cocktail offerings. Our favorites were the Helios in the Sand and Dream Catcher.

Harmony of the Seas Bars – Deck 15

Pool Bar is located near the main pool on deck 15. This is the perfect spot to enjoy your favorite frozen cocktail during an afternoon in the sun. Of note, the pool bar is located near a smoking area.

Harmony of the Seas BarsHarmony of the Seas Bars

Since we didn’t have many sunny days, we had to make up for lost time and ordered drinks from the Pool Bar, Sand Mar, and Mast Bar all in one day, sampling different drinks off the new standard menu of course.

Sand Bar offers the same experience as the Pool Bar but is conveniently located near the Beach Pool and is non-smoking.

Harmony of the Seas BarsHarmony of the Seas Bars

Of all the pool areas, this is the one we enjoyed the most. We spent our sea days lounging in the colorful chairs near the beach pool and enjoying our cocktails.

Harmony of the Seas Bars – Deck 16

Solarium Bar is your cocktail oasis while relaxing in the Solarium. This partially covered 3-story area offers a zen environment for adults with plenty of comfy loungers and some of the best views on the ship. Unfortunately, the Solarium on Harmony of the Seas does not have a pool though.

Harmony of the Seas Eastern Caribbean Cruise Review 2017Harmony of the Seas Bars

Good thing for the Solarium Bar as this is where we spent our first sea day when the weather decided not to cooperate with us. This was also the first place that we noticed the new drink menus. Our first drinks off this new menu were the Pirate Iced Tea and Sexy Ocean.

Harmony of the Seas BarsHarmony of the Seas Bars

If you are looking for other outdoor bar options, deck 16 also offers the Mast Bar.

Harmony of the Seas Eastern Caribbean Cruise ReviewHarmony of the Seas Bars

If you are looking to get sun-drenched but want to avoid the chaos of the pool deck, deck 16 offers plenty of loungers. Of course, you will get thirsty, so why not try the Cuba Libra and Caribbean Cooler like we did.

Harmony of the Seas BarsHarmony of the Seas Bars

And, last but not least is the Wipe Out Bar. Located completely aft of the ship, this is a great location to enjoy a drink while watching the action on the Flowrider or Ultimate Abyss. Perhaps, you’ll need a little liquid courage before trying out these activities.

Harmony of the Seas BarsHarmony of the Seas Bars

We relaxed in the Adirondack chairs here one afternoon while docked in Labadee and enjoyed 2 drinks off the new bar menus, the Sexy Ocean and Lynchburg Lemonade.
