My husband and I are giving this cruise an average because of the Guest Relation Service and Communications. Ship - Old and small ship as what we expected, clean and well maintained. Entertainment - Not bad except for one night ... 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 read many reviews of Rhapsody of the Seas and to be honest was a little apprehensive about booking this cruise. We have considerable cruising experience and I can honestly say that my misgivings were unfounded. I can only conclude that ... 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

We stayed in Venice for a few days before joining the ship, & in fact saw it arriving the day before we embarked, when we were out walking. We are Diamond Plus members & decided to opt for an Owners Suite for this cruise. We ... Read more

This was our second cruise on Rhapsody of the Seas this year. In March we spent two weeks sailing Chile to Argentina. RCCL needs to spend some money on Rhapsody of the Seas to bring it back to the quality level you expect on RCCL. To ... Read more

Although we've travelled around Europe we'd never visited the Greek Islands. So this seems the ideal opportunity. Overall the trip was good: our table for 10 in the main dining room was great with some excellent companions! We thought the ... Read more

Great destinations, Santorini was the best. Enough time to visit in all ports of call. RC staff always friendly, polite and ready to help. Their staff is their main strength. Poor food variety at the main restaurant and buffet. Quality ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the itinerary, but the ship experience itself was wonderful. The vessel is older, and the bed was awful at first, but the service was amazing and the dining room meals were wonderful! Thanks Raj and Kevin at table ... Read more

This was a Jekyll and Hyde cruise. The cabin, a Grand Suite was the most functional cabin we have ever stayed in and was at a bargain price. There was a functional flow to the layout, with enough closet space, more drawer space than we ... Read more

This was our 5th RCI cruise, and 2nd on Rhapsody. This ship is one of the smaller ones and can be quite quiet. We were in a group so made our own entertainment but there were mostly older people and some days the activities were lacking. ... Read more
