Ship Facts: Rhapsody of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Rhapsody of the Seas Deck Plans
Royal Caribbean Rhapsody Rocks!

RCCL's Rhapsody of the Seas cruising the Inside Passage to Alaska, was a wonderful experience for our 3 generations group of 20 - ages varying from 6 to 76. We were all together to celebrate my 50th birthday and there were plenty of activities for all ages and we all conveniently met for dinner every day to talk about our adventures. Recommended workshops are the "shopping in Alaska" (sit up front if possible) and the "gemology" as well as the traditional napkin and towel folding. The Centrum shows were spectacular and (for us) spur of the moment as we headed back to our cabins. My one complaint was the evening shows were so booked solid that there was not enough space for everyone, so you had to arrive almost 30 minutes early if you wanted a seat, and give up trying to meet anyone there.

Wine is 2 bottles per stateroom (with at least 1 over 21 year old). It needs to be packed in your carry-on bag. The all you can drink package is definitely worth it for the drinking set ...

The cruise "excursions" were all well coordinated and handled efficiently. Of course that is why you pay a bit more to have the cruise line handle things. Alaska was extremely picturesque and we say whales, porpoises, one seal (we think), eagles, salmon, and even a bear!

RCCL provided the cruise critics a meet and mingle - which was a great way to meet the folks I had met on-line. We chatted about what things we can do and the differences between the inside staterooms and the window views. It would have been nicer if it was later in the afternoon - the timing was right after breakfast, so most of us could not enjoy the beautiful appetizers they provided.

All said and done - the cruise was the best stress-free extended family vacation we have ever taken. There was plenty for everyone and now all that is left is the sharing of the zillions of wonderful pictures.

Thanks RCCL Rhapsody crew for making my 50th birthday memorable for me and 19 of my family & friends!
