Ship Facts: Rhapsody of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Rhapsody of the Seas Deck Plans
Vancouver to Hawaii - 11 Nts
Since we live in the greater Vancouver area, we did not require pre-cruise accommodation. With 3 ships embarking at the same time, 2 of which were RCI, getting on board was extremely slow and we were left sitting for over 2 hrs before our row of seats was finally called to enter the standing line to check-in. The ship finally left an hour late.

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 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.
