This was our first cruise. We were not disappointed. We took our four kids and loved every minute of it. The food was great. The service and staff were fantastic. It was a smaller ship compared to others so the activities were ... Read more

This was my first cruise. I was on vacation with my wife. We booked an oceanview stateroom in deck 2 of the Rhapsody. We did not like the cruise. It’s very small, the decoration is very retro (not in a fashionable way) and looks old, ... Read more

I read some of the reviews, but I went with an open mind. I had been in bigger ships so I was a little apprehensive about this one. Let's start: the embarkation process was horrendous, is amazing how the embarkation on the Oasis and Allure ... Read more

We just got back from a wonderful holiday on Rhapsody of the Seas. We had never taken a Christmas cruise and this turned out to be a very relaxing and warm way to spend the holiday season. Embarkation was a bit crazy, and even though we ... Read more

I went on this cruise to accompany my son, his wife and my 10 mos old granddaughter on a week's vacation together to celebrate the holidays. This ship was chosen because it's one of the very few cruises that offer baby child care for ... Read more

Had a great time on this cruise. The cruise director, Patricio, was a hard working man, along with his staff and the activities director/staff. They really kept the entertainment going when I thought I'd be bored a lot. I liked the 70s ... Read more

JR. Suite 8022 presented us with sleepless nights from all the noise from overhead (banging, slamming & cart rolling noises) all night long (our friends in JR. Suite 8084 experienced the same). Housekeeper was excellent, dining staff ... Read more

Embarkation was a nightmare. Ship was not ready and passengers had to wait outside for hours with no place to sit. Ship finally left port at 9PM. Passengers were rushed though dinner, unable to finish so that they could attend muster. The ... Read more

Birthday cruise on line that we frequent. The My Time dining was a joke. Lousy service, bickering waitstaff, mediocre food, mixed up orders. No recourse because gratuities are required for My time. This was the first cruise that the women ... Read more

We knew this was an older ship, but the price was right and the ports of call were interesting. Also, we've been on the mega ships and are a bit tired of the floating malls. We were looking forward to enjoy the real cruise feeling of the ... Read more

We chose this cruise mostly for the departure and arrival ports, but were really pleased with the cruise itself. I had sailed on this same ship in the Caribbean years ago and was not all that impressed. Somehow, this captain and crew ... Read more

We sailed for 21 fabulous days, on back to back cruises. As the cruises began and ended in Venice, we had extra time there so did spend $ on pre or post stays in Venice. We decided to put that money into a second cruise, which worked out ... Read more
