We loved this cruise. While Rhapsody isn't one of their largest ships, it doesn't lack in things to do. They keep the schedule packed with shows, classes, and events. There was a show every night with good performers. The ship had limited ... Read more

We were pleasantly surprise on our seven night cruise on the Rapsody. Dan, the cruise director, and Eric, his assistant kept the fun going. Top, recent, movies, Sully and La La Land, were great on the day we needed to skip Costa Maya due ... Read more

Choose this ship for itinerary and good price for 3 of us inside cabin 7063. The cabin was very small but enough closet and drawer space. The bathroom had no room next to sink to put toiletries at all. Shower curtain, small shower but fine ... Read more

Traveling from the Northeast we went down to Tampa a few days before departure. Embarkation was normal. Smooth and efficient. Boarded around Noon and cabins opened at 1pm. Used that hour to go to the MDR and find our table. That saved ... Read more

We chose this ship because it went out of Tampa where airfare was half of what it was to any other east coast port. It was the next to the worse cruise I have every been on. Smelly, limited menu, little in organized activities other than ... Read more

Cruising out of Tampa is much more convenient for us than the hassle of going to Miami or Lauderdale. Unfortunately Tampa can only handle smaller ships because it's port is unable to accommodate the larger vessels. Smaller ships simply do ... Read more

Worst cruise ever! Went to 4 sit down breakfasts, not one was served correctly. Cold soggy potatoes, overcooked eggs, wrong meat served, on and on. On the last time I put the plate back on the servers station. Went to the buffet. ... Read more

The ship is in great shape for its age. Of the few cruises we have been on (all from other lines) this has been the oldest but best maintained. It is a smaller ship, with less activities, shops and likely not the top of the line shows ... Read more

My wife and I went on this cruise with another couple and everyone had a great time. We're in our mid- to late-fifties and enjoy an active lifestyle and this ship had everything that we needed. We prefer the smaller ship because its not ... Read more

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

Left Tampa on Rhapsody of The Sea for 7 day cruise to some great ports. We did this cruise because we live an hour from Tampa, and could be dropped off, and picked up by a relative, and didn't have to pay for parking. This was my first ... 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

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
