Vancouver to Hawaii - 11 Nts
The Rhapsody of the Seas is one of the older and smaller ships in the RCI fleet, in the 2nd to bottom group of Vision ships. Though the ship was refitted a few months ago with a huge facelift, little things still reminded you of its age and size.
We ate Brkfst and lunch almost exclusively at the Windjammer Buffett. The food selection was good, not great. We had lunch one day at Izumi's, which was a nice change - the extra $ was worth it. I also had 1 Brkfst in the MDR which I enjoyed. Usually had a late afternoon wrap or salad at the Park Cafe to tie me over until our late dinner seating at 8:30 pm.
I enjoyed my spa More treatment of a foot massage & pedicure, and the price wasn't too bad.
We did find the 5 days at sea got a bit long and other than swimming and/or drinking, there wasn't a whole lot to do. We partook in the daily trivia, bingo, poker tournament etc. Though it would have been nice to have non-tournament poker games going on. The $100 buy in tournament, only secured you a spot in the final tournament, so no winnings until the last day.
Once we landed in Lahaina on day 7, the days flew by.
Our large inside cabin, had a lot of storage space. We had to have the lock fixed on the washroom door, and we could hear things being moved around above us in the R-bar frequently. Less
Cabin review: L3069 Large Interior Stateroom
Our large inside cabin #3069 was comfortable, with a surprisingly large amount of closet and storage space. The washroom was small & the shower was the tiniest I've seen. We did hear frequent noises of rattles and squeaks and what sounded like furniture being moved around above us. Since we were under the R-Bar, I'm guessing it was coming from above us, though sometimes noises seemed to be coming from behind our cabin too. Maybe there was a linen room or something.Read All Large Interior Stateroom (L) Reviews >>
