Ship Facts: Rhapsody of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Rhapsody of the Seas Deck Plans
Great Family Holiday

We arrived at 8am and weren't able to board until 12pm, but we were able to check in our luggage which was good so we went and had some breakie and a look around Sydney for a few hours. The embarkation at about 12pm was vey smooth and only took about 20 minutes.


The entertainment was quite good for the whole cruise, especially the acrobatic show in tha centrum.

There was a good range of shows from musical to comedians.

There was also a good range of activities during the day depending what you are interested in. Some of the times for things like trivia didn't suit us but overall there was plenty to do.

Food & service:

Wow where do I start, there is soooo much food on the ship you will never be hungry. We had my family dining, so we had the same table, waiting staff and people at the table every night which was at 6pm. The food in the Main dining room was amazing with a different variety of food every night. The waiting staff were fantastic and made an extra effort with kids. After a couple of nights they we prepared with our drinks arriving when we did.

We had our other meals in the windjammer which filled us up each time with a large variety also.


Basic but met all needs as we were not in there too often. Two things wrong was the size of the shower and there was no iron.

Kids zone:

We thought the programme was quite basic but the kids seemed to really enjoy it and made good friends there. The kids liked the staff with their nicknames and giving each other new nicknames for the cruise.

The rock wall was great with great encouragement from the two men who ran it and by the end of the trip the kids were climbing it like monkeys.
