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

I chose this cruise because I wanted a family getaway. I know the Rhapsody doesn't specify in children and family, but I loved everything about the ship. My favorite part though was the shows. They were absouloutly marvelous. The cruise ... 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

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

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
