This was the best cruise. The Staff was so helpful from the moment we embarked. The cabin was comfortable and the attendant met our every need. The Windjammer which is buffet was wonderful. They came around with drinks and pastries. ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we had never been to 3 out of the 4 ports of call. We've been to most of the other Caribbean Islands. So here's my honest review: Embarkation did not go smoothly. We were told to head upstairs to go through ... Read more

Evening shows were not good and there was not much variety. Definitely not the nice productions like all the other cruises I have taken. Reggae style band by the pool was better but very loud. When not playing music at the pool they had ... Read more

This cruise was arranged by employer... never look a gift horse in the mouth! We enjoyed the cruise ....all things in perspective. The overall experience was great... any little hiccup did not spoil it. Library was lacking... turned out ... Read more

overall very nice! Very clean ship and room as well as all common areas. Their choice of stations provided on the television really sucked though! I know one does not go on a cruise to watch television in your room but there are some down ... Read more

This was our first cruise ever and we were very happy. Although the ship is older, it is still very pretty and clean and in great working order. The staff, no matter where you went, was always very friendly and eager to keep you pleased. ... Read more

We got on this cruise very last-minute, due to a cancellation on Tuesday before sail date of 3/18/17. We had not been on this ship or been to three of the four ports, so we were excited about that. I can honestly say that Rhapsody, while ... Read more

Spring Break cruise with my wife and teenage son. The ship is in great shape despite its age. The staff was excellent. The itinerary for the cruise is awesome. Great destinations to Cozumel, Roatan, and Belize with 2 days at sea. Lots of ... Read more

I have taken many Royal Caribbean cruises - only one with another cruise line. It might be time to retire this ship. Embarkation - we were supposed to have priority boarding but did not receive it. Also, when we first stepped onto ... Read more

Leaving Tampa, FL was a good option. Ports, I would go again, at a later time. I love casta maya, I loved the over all experience. I did all ready plan a trip for September 17th on the Allure of the Seas. The casino was good. Broadway ... Read more

We'd not been on RCL for a number of years, having done our last 2 cruises on Carnival. We wanted to see what a higher rated cruise line had to offer above what we'd gotten in the past. Rhapsody is 20 years old. Its been 4 years since ... Read more

Wish we had done more research prior to booking. First shock was the size of the cabin. At 152 sq ft, not a lot of room for 2 adults and 2 kids. Ship was "revamped" in 2012 but she shows her age despite the facelift. Food was ... Read more

We choose the Rhapsody of the Seas on Royal Caribbean because they went out of Tampa. Combing visiting with family, with going on a cruise. We've been on several cruises, but those were on other cruise lines. The staff was very nice, ... Read more

I chose this cruise line due to your reputation for having great entertainment and food. These lived up to expectations. However, the bed was the worst ever. If we could have left the cruise line, we would have. It made for the ... Read more

We loved this cruise. While Rhapsody isn't one of their largest ships, it doesn't lack in things to do. They keep the schedule packed with shows, classes, and events. There was a show every night with good performers. The ship had limited ... Read more

Choose this ship for itinerary and good price for 3 of us inside cabin 7063. The cabin was very small but enough closet and drawer space. The bathroom had no room next to sink to put toiletries at all. Shower curtain, small shower but fine ... Read more

Traveling from the Northeast we went down to Tampa a few days before departure. Embarkation was normal. Smooth and efficient. Boarded around Noon and cabins opened at 1pm. Used that hour to go to the MDR and find our table. That saved ... Read more

We chose this ship because it went out of Tampa where airfare was half of what it was to any other east coast port. It was the next to the worse cruise I have every been on. Smelly, limited menu, little in organized activities other than ... Read more

Cruising out of Tampa is much more convenient for us than the hassle of going to Miami or Lauderdale. Unfortunately Tampa can only handle smaller ships because it's port is unable to accommodate the larger vessels. Smaller ships simply do ... Read more
