Harmony is a specialty restaurant created in partnership with the former chef of Wing Lei – the first Chinese restaurant in North America awarded a Michelin star – Harmony, features Chef Richard Chen’s interpretation of classic Cantonese dishes. Chef Chen’s innovative plates demonstrate impeccable technique with a masterful balance of ingredients and flavors.
Princess Cruises' specialty restaurants always deliver an extraordinary experience. They are among the best at sea – or anywhere. Majestic Princess introduces Harmony to the fleet. We put this on our must-do list so that we could report about this culinary experience.
Our cruise package included one complimentary specialty dining for two up to $29 value each. Since Harmony's cover charge was within those limits, that was a second reason for choosing it.
Tip: Always listen to wait staff's advice regarding menu selection
We'll Have the Peking Duck Salad
At dinner, a couple nights before we went to Harmony, we asked our Head Waiter how the food was at Harmony and if he had any recommendations. You have to order the Peking Duck Salad. We also spoke to our Waiter and told him we wouldn't be there because we were going to Harmony for dinner. He too gave us an unsolicited recommendation for Peking Duck Salad. When we arrived for dinner at Harmony, our Waiter explained the menu and offered his recommendations ... you guessed it. So, we did order that for our starter. It was amazing !! We later learned that was the chef's specialty dish.
Our main entrees were Stir Fried Shrimp, sugar peas, and mushrooms and the Harmony Lightly Crisped Chicken, water chestnut, ginger and soy glaze. The main meal was complimented with Egg White Fried Rice, scallops and Cantonese Chow Mein. assorted vegetables. Dessert was Red Bean Crème Brûlée.
We thoroughly enjoyed dining at Harmony. The service was great, the food was fantastic, and the view out the window added to the ambiance. It is well worth the cover charge if you like Cantonese food. The waiter didn't steer us wrong with his recommendations, which he tailored to our tastes.
