Perhaps the greatest “Wow” on the whole ship is Central Park. Open air right in the centre of the ship with balconies set all around it takes some figuring out how it can be when first arriving. A unique upscale gathering place which provides a perfect venue for some relaxation. This neighbourhood is probably more for adults than the kids though.
Including 2 of the ships more upscale bars Vintages and the Trellis Bar both a perfect spot for an evening drink. Playing throughout the evening are pianists and an assortment of other musicians.
The third bar in Central Park is the Rising Tide bar which moves between Central Park and the Royal Promenade. Champagne is on the menu as you move between the 2 neighbourhoods.
The are also a number of dining venues on Central Park including Park Cafe serving light breakfast and lunches including their famous beef sandwiches. However; I would recommend trying their Breakfast Muffins which could teach McDonalds a thing or two.
Jamie’s Italian(a first on Oasis Class), Chops Grill and 150 Central Park are the 3 premium dining venues that all carry extra charge. Promoted as the premier dining venue on Harmony of the Seas is 150 Central Park which features menus by James Beard Award-winning chef Michael Schwartz.
Making up the offering on Central Park is a selection of stores which will soon lighten your pockets.
A fine neighbourhood to relax during your vacation. Unlike the Boardwalk which we felt had not been completed to the same high standards as Allure of the Seas Central Park is just as impressive as on its sister ships.
Finally a bit of trivia; the Central Park neighborhood features 10,587 plants, 48 vine plants, and 52 trees which are cared for by a staff of three horticulturists.
