Ship Facts: Rhapsody of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Rhapsody of the Seas Deck Plans
Rhapsody of the Seas Jan 7 -14, 2013
We chose this cruise solely on the basis that it departed on our 30Th Wedding anniversary. No other criteria! We spoilt ourselves with a Junior Suite. Really recommend the suite we had at the rear of the ship (8598). It had extra balcony room to most Junior Suites. We were told aft has the highest risk of sea-sickness, but the seas were calm and we had no problem. The Suite standard is excellent - good storage room, nice bathroom, good bed, great view.

The cruise experience was wonderful. Entertainment was first rate and the food was good. Didn't enjoy the mad rush for seats after dinner though - people aren't meant to reserve seats, but some had blocked out whole rows.

We bought the Royal Dining Package (only $50 each) - highly recommend for the great food and service. Edelweiss restaurant was good too.

Noumea as a destination? Pretty ho hum, Isle of Pines - beautiful. Good snorkeling - take your own gear (we hit Rebel the day before we went!)

Service , generally friendly and good. Park Cafe staff were a bit rude, but everywhere else on board was pretty good. Activities staff were very switched on - especially Andre and Amanda.

Buy the tips package - takes the pressure off for us Aussies.

Would we cruise again on Rhapsody? - you betcha!
