Ship Facts: Rhapsody of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Rhapsody of the Seas Deck Plans
Old ship with limited facilities

From the moment we boarded we knew this would be an experience like no other, and talking to other passengers everyone felt exactly the same.

We had a junior suite with none of the extras as discussed on the website - eventually asking for dressing gowns. Cruise information on excursions was non existent and we were told to look it up on the internet if we wanted basic information (eg. how far to the golf course at Pago Pago,) by a surly individual. Prices in the duty free shops were immediately increased by 20% the next day out from Honolulu - you are now in Australian waters !! Downtrodden staff which seemed to be ruled harshly by bureaucratic overtones. Cruise director a 'selfie' and rather didactic in his relaying of why we would be unable to have streamlined satellite to watch the AFL Grand Final - fortunately we were able to watch it. Blasted by loud music trying to relax around the pool a daily occurrence.

Food was just adequate and the only meals we had which were good were at the specialty restaurants where you paid quite a bit extra.

Old ship, underpaid staff, no laundry facilites (pity the parents with four children in inside cabins for 17 days) and limited entertainment/sporting classes unless you paid for it. Water in cabin had to be purchased.

Have cruised with different lines, and never again with Royal Caribbean
