Cruise of a Lifetime!

Sail Date: May 2012
Destination: Alaska
Embarkation: Seattle

We boarded the Rhapsody on 05-18-12 for our cruise to Alaska (Juneau, Skagway, Endicott Glacier and Victoria, British Columbia). We arrived to board ship around 12:30pm on the 18th and real glad we did. We had only about 30 minute wait to get our sea pass and board. I suggest printing all your boarding information on line and requesting your luggage tags in advance, this makes it all so much smoother to board.

All ship employee's were great (except one lady at casino who just didn't seem to enjoy her job and never smiled) but everybody else was absolutely wonderful. They always had smiles and were more than willing to help with anything you needed. I have cruised a couple other cruise lines (Princess and Celebrity) and after cruising Royal Caribbean I will not cruise with anyone else from here on out. We ate the at the sushi restaurant and it was great sushi! The Windjammer buffet was also very good, large variety of foods to choose from and the desserts were More fabulous!!! Edelweiss restaurant prime rib yum yum yum! I don't like to dress up but you have to just to eat the food at the Edelweiss.

So many things to do, the cruise director defiantly keeps you busy while at sea with all sorts of things (line dancing classes, art actions, bingo, shows to see and so much more). The only thing is I wish they had more shops on board.

I know I will never book on a larger ship due to the personal attention we received on the Rhapsody. Ship size is perfect and the restorations were beautiful. This cruise didn't have a lot of kids and younger individuals. I prefer a more mature crowd and this was perfect!!!!
It was a perfect vacation, Alaska is beautiful! Yukon gorgeous! Victoria Pristine! Best vacation I have ever taken! I don't duplicate vacations generally but I would duplicate this one definitely! Less

Cabin review: Rhapsody of the Seas Large Oceanview Stateroom Deck 3 4522

Our cabin 4522 was great! Large Ocean view view was awesome room size perfect for 2. Facilities were larger than on other ships I have cruised. Over all our stateroom was perfect!

Dog Sledding

(5)
Wonderful! The helicopter ride was beautiful and the dog sledding with Sebastian's huskies was an added pleasure since he won the Yukon dog sledding in 2009. Absolutely great!
