This was our 5th RCI cruise, and 2nd on Rhapsody. This ship is one of the smaller ones and can be quite quiet. We were in a group so made our own entertainment but there were mostly older people and some days the activities were lacking. ... Read more

We choose this cruise because it doesn't normally follow this route . Was repositioning to Venice to do the Greek islands Area. We like this ship because it,s not massive but big enough to lose yourself. The staff are always friendly and ... Read more

We really liked the ship. Entertainment was very good. Need to improve the food at the main dinning room. Not enough fish main courses. And the portions on the appetizers were tiny. Like the Caesar salad. With three pieces of lettuce. ... Read more

Our travel agent got us a good deal, to include extra nights in Brazil and Barcelona. Never been to Brazil before, and the itinerary suited us with 7 days at sea, the cruise ended in Barcelona and we only live 1 hour flight away. We ... Read more

I am Sooo Done with Royal!!! I am a veteran of more than 50 cruises, many (Emerald) with RCI. This cruise from Valpariso (3/27/16) to Sao Paulo was a total disaster. When we arrived at the port in Valpariso we were ushered to the ... Read more

Purchased this cruise to go around the Horn and visit Cape Horn, which did not happen. The dining room staff were very slow and inexperience. They seem to have a lack of customer service and a "don't care" attitude. Had to ask ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the "rounding Cape Horn" opportunity, and we were not disappointed. Captain Dinas circumnavigated the island brilliantly and even dispatched a small boat to the island to have our passports ... Read more

We were among the very lucky cruisers on the March 13 sailing who actually circumnavigated the Island of Horn at Cape Horn, thanks to our excellent Capt. Dimas Manrique, and Mother Nature's gift of relatively calm seas. This cruise was ... Read more

First, I'll start with the positives. The ports were amazing, the staff was very friendly, the ship is just the right size to tour the Chilean Fjords. The captain was a very friendly and noticeable person. For the most part, he kept us ... Read more
