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

All in all the cruise was really good. The ship is good only for port intensive cruises. I would avoid it for a transatlantic crossing. This was our first time on the Rhapsody. We had been on many other Royal Ships before including the ... Read more
