The Oasis Class is made up of the biggest and boldest ships in the fleet. Among those ships is Harmony of the Seas, an award-winning wonder that’s loaded with all kinds of incredible onboard experiences, spectacular entertainment, palate-pleasing restaurants, buzzing bars, and family-friendly activities everyone in the crew can get behind. In fact, there are so many fun and exciting things to do onboard this game changing ship that planning out your sea days can seem a little overwhelming at first. We’re here to help! From the best specialty restaurants and complimentary dining options onboard, to can’t-miss top deck attractions, dazzling shows, kid-approved activities, and nightlife that keeps the adventure going long after the sun goes down — here are some of the top things to do onboard Harmony of the Seas.

1. Conquer The Ultimate Abyss

One of the most popular Oasis Class experiences is the Ultimate Abyss. Standing at ten stories, it’s the tallest slide at sea — and a must-try attraction for thrill seekers and adrenaline chasers cruising on Harmony of the Seas. Rides down this record-setting slide are included in your cruise fare — and they’re totally kid-friendly, too, as long as your little ones meet the 44-inch minimum height requirement.

2. Race A Friend Down The Perfect Storm Waterslides

If you can’t get enough of that adrenaline rush, you can satisfy your need for speed on The Perfect Storm waterslides. These dueling high-speed racers propel you along twists and turns complete with long, translucent stretches that offer exhilarating sea views. There are two of them — Typhoon and Cyclone — so you can challenge a buddy on the ride of your life. Next to the Ultimate Abyss, The Perfect Storm is one of the best ways to boost the thrill factor during your vacation onboard Harmony of the Seas.

3. Soar Along A Zip Line Suspended Ten Decks High

Want to score some serious bragging rights? Try soaring across the Boardwalk along a zip line suspended ten decks high. If you’re all about feeling the rush, this is one of the top things to do onboard Harmony of the Seas — and it’s completely complimentary. You don’t even need to make a reservation — just step right up and get ready to soar! 

4. Raise A Glass As The Rising Tide Bar Raises You

Drink your way to the top at one of the most innovative bars at sea. This cutting-edge lounge ferries guests between the Royal Promenade and Central Park on a ride that’s as smooth as the martini in your glass. You can sip your favorite mixed drinks, wines, or beers as you move up and down between decks, and see for yourself why this high-tech hangout is considered one of the coolest experiences onboard Harmony of the Seas.  

5. Catch The Perfect Wave On The FlowRider

Every person who cruises on Harmony of the Seas should definitely try the FlowRider. This 40-foot-long surf simulator is an Oasis Class staple. It funnels 30,000 gallons of rushing water over a sloping platform to creating the perfect conditions for taming waves. Try not to wipe out while surfing on your feet, or coast over the swell boogie-style on your belly — there’s no wrong way to take on this thrilling — and complimentary — top deck attraction.

6. Soak Up The Serenity Poolside At The Solarium

While Harmony of the Seas is packed with family-friendly thrills and activities, sometimes it’s nice to kick back and enjoy a little adult time. If rest and relaxation is what you’re craving, head to the Solarium, an adults-only indoor-outdoor oasis with lagoon-like pools and whirlpools, a fully stocked bar, and plenty of spaces to soak up the sunshine or lounge in the shade. Admission to this sun-soaked hideaway is included in your cruise fare.

7. Watch A Robot Mix You A Cocktail At Bionic Bar

If you’re looking to freshen up your Instagram feed, make sure you stop at Bionic Bar. One of the most photo-worthy spots onboard Harmony of the Seas, this lively bar is home to two robotic bartenders programmed to mix incredible cocktails. You can choose a drink from the set menu or create your own cocktail — all you have to do is enter the recipe into one of the iPads at the bar and sit back as these high-tech mixologists whip up something delicious.

8. Set Out On An All-Access Galley Tour Followed By Brunch

Curious about what goes on behind the scenes in the galley onboard one of the biggest ships the world? You’re going to want to add an all-access tour to the itinerary during your cruise vacation onboard Harmony of the Seas. Hands-down one of the coolest things to do on the ship, this insider’s look at kitchen operations will show you everything you want to know about how dishes are prepared, how the ingredients are sourced and stored, and more. Afterward, you’ll sit down to an amazing brunch in the Main Dining Room. 

9. Prepare To Be Amazed At The AquaTheater

Entertainment is one of the many things we do incredibly well, and when it comes to captivating shows, Harmony of the Seas delivers so many amazing options to choose from. One of the best spots to catch a scene-stealing performance is the AquaTheater. This open-air venue hosts stunt-driven spectaculars with world-class aerialists and Olympic-level divers. Watch them leap from dizzying heights while talented synchronized swimmers dazzle in the water below. 

If you’re looking for a ship that offers the perfect blend of top deck attractions, family-friendly activities, world-class entertainment and delicious dining, Harmony of the Seas certainly delivers. And while this list spotlights some of the top things to do onboard the ship, it doesn’t come close to covering all the amazing discoveries that await onboard.
