Food Good and bad here, the Eidelweiss restaurant was mostly good. Chicken dishes were excellent, but beef dishes were uniformly overdone. Pork was good, and a nice selection of cold soups. Windjammer was mostly good, and the Apple ... Read more

This was our second cruise and it was the first with Royal Caribbean. The Rhapsody of the Seas was celebrating its 20th anniversary and passenger guests shared the cake, too. There were a variety of reasonably priced excursions, from ... Read more

We received a great price/deal for this cruise, and we absolutely loved our stateroom. We were on the aft of the ship and enjoyed how our balcony was longer and wider than the balconies on the side of the ship. We had two lounge chairs, ... Read more

The Rhapsody is somewhat hard to review. First, it's a smaller ship with less to do than most Royal ships. The itinerary we had was Roatan-Belize-Costa Maya-Cozumel. We loved Costa Maya and Cozumel but could have done without Roatan or ... Read more
