We are a family with 2 teens – 15 and 16. We aim to enjoy our holidays so don’t stress if the towels are smaller than they should be (which they are) or if Guest Services give us a spare room key that didn’t work, ... Read more

A lovely ship with some great places to visit. (Corfu, Athens, Santorini, Mykanos, Kotor and Zadar). It is not one of the biggest ships so it does not offer all the features people might expect but on the other hand this makes it easier ... Read more

We chose the cruise for the destinations. Which on 50% of the time was as expected. The others were not as advertised. We had to pay extra to get into the local towns, even when using their shuttle services. In Dubrovnik, they charged $12 ... Read more

I would give a rating of average to good to this cruise. My number one complaint was the internet service. RC customer relations staff told me, when I complained, that the service was bad because they had too many people online. If ... Read more

As a wheel chair user I found the staff ignorant of my needs, there seemed to have been no training re mobility passengers. From getting into arrivals at Venice to departures at Venice 10 days later it was a shambles. We had to wait 45 ... Read more

I am a long-time cruiser, having cruised RC about a dozen times over the past 20 years. While some RC cruise ships are a little better than others, they tended to be similar -- until I took the Rhapsody of the Seas. This most recent ... Read more
