Best Cruise Experience - Family Holiday: Rhapsody of the Seas Cruise Review by knomes79
Overall Member Rating
Best Cruise Experience - Family Holiday
Destination: South Pacific
Embarkation: Sydney (Australia)
What to avoid - Fiji locals are pretty dodgy, best to book tours through the cruise for first timers or do your research before you leave on shore activities in Suva and Lautoka.
Noumea - catch the bus to the nice parts and don't stray on your own, the locals were not friendly at all near the wharf.
Mystery Island, Isle of Pines and Lifou - Highly recommended. In Lifou go to the other side of the island, pay the $8 Australian and enjoy the snorkelling into some very impressive coral and fish.
The food on this cruise was outstanding night after night in the restaurant and the windjammer was a great buffet of choice and ease. The service in the restaurant was "excellent".
If you are some-one who is set in your ways about how things are done, or a control freak, do not go on a cruise as this is the luxury that others enjoy on these holidays and a cruise is right on the money. Less
Great to have a balcony and enjoy the fresh sea air and coming in and out of the ports.
