After spotting a great deal on interior cabins, I decided to book this Valentine’s week cruise for my wife and I. We went solo this time, as it’s been 2 years since it was just us on a vacation. After 7 days of relaxation on ... Read more

Just returned from our 7 day Caribbean cruise and had an incredible time. One of the smaller ships we have traveled on but actually worked out better for us since we were traveling with some 80+ year old family members. Always something ... Read more

We choose this cruise because the itinerary was different and the price we paid was unbeatable! Embarkation went pretty smoothly and within 30 minutes we were on the ship! Windjammer food was good and plenty! Our cabin was located ... Read more

The purpose of our cruise was strictly for relaxation. This cruise accomplished our goal. There were many good things and a few disappointing aspects to the cruise. To start with, we drove to Tampa for debarkation but didn’t ... Read more

Overall we had a great time on the Rhapsody of the Seas . 4 of us enjoyed the food, service, entertainment and look of the ship although it’s an older vessel and not as nice as some of the newer ones. We appreciated the adequate ... Read more

We chose this cruise to just get away and relax. We had been on a sister ship, the Vision, a few years back and enjoyed it very much. We were sadly disappointed with the Rhapsody. A beautiful ship, but too many disappointing experiences to ... Read more

We went on this cruise to meet some friends who were going. This was our first time on Royal Caribbean. Our biggest disappointment was with the dining room. First, we had trouble getting any reservations. Then the choices on the menu ... Read more

The overall cruse (Western Caribbean / Roatan, Belieze, Mexico was good) BUT this cabin is located under the galley / prep area of the Cafe. So, almost every night starting at 3AM when they started their work - we were woken up. ... Read more

We've took 10 cruises, 8 were with RCCL, this was nothing more than a ship with all new employees. Our guess is the seasoned employees moved up the food chain to newer ships. The food was bland. The salad bar which is normally excellent ... Read more

It could be much better if we have a decent bed. We was staying at stateroom 7092, with private balcony. Room was very good. Buy the bed was a nightmare: the mattresses were curved sunken, I have pictures to show. We complained, they tried ... Read more

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 took a Christmas cruise from Christmas Eve to New Years Eve. This is an older ship in the RC fleet but it was clean and the decor was nice. There are signs of rust on the port hole windows and other signs of age. The entertainment was ... 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

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
