Not at all interested in Royal Caribbean's big ship activities. I'm not into sky diving, surfing, rock climbing or zip lining so I figured the 2000 person Rhapsody would be a good choice I like the smaller ships. Not good choice at all. ... Read more

This is the first review I have ever written on a vacation destination. We did enjoy the nightly dining room meal with friends and family. We participated in most activities and went to most of the shows. The overall opinion of the ship ... Read more

Enjoyed the holiday, however I would certainly book direct with Royal Caribbean next time as the literature from the travel agent was almost nil. Thoroughly enjoyed the visits to all locations on the cruise and I must say the food was ... Read more

We had cabin 8100, a JS facing the back of the ship. The cabin and balcony size were outstanding BUT this is an older ship and it simply cannot handle speeds in excess of 15 knots even with calm seas without without causing severe ... Read more

I have my travel agent's licence - and can be very critical at times... and I honestly can say this is one of the more organized, friendly ships I have ever been on! We had a great group of peeps- from 49 to 80 years old, and the ship ... Read more

I would give the cruise a 5 star rating, but the last day at sea was really chaotic. They had definitely not enough deck chairs to accommodate all the people. Or they had enough chairs but some people reserved them, who knows. However ... Read more

Things that I didn’t like about Rhapsody of the Sea: Food- Food tasted like hospital food - it actually came out on the same type of covered plate they give you in a hospital. They brought fresh squeezed OJ to your table at ... Read more

We loved the smaller ship size. We read the reviews and feel they were accurate but it was a perfect vacation fit for our family. The reviews scared us after we booked, buyers remorse. But we read too much detail. The food was good but not ... Read more

The Rhapsody of the Seas is showing its age. But so is it's crew. Compared to newer designs, Rhapsody of the Seas doesn't feel large enough for the capacity it holds. But beyond that, other gripes emerge. The food in the main dining room ... Read more
