just back from Hawaii to Vancouver: Rhapsody of the Seas Cruise Review by ladycanuck
Overall Member Rating
just back from Hawaii to Vancouver
The ship itself is beautiful - lots of interesting artwork everywhere, beautiful lounges, especially the Viking at the very top, lots of open area for outside walking, lots of quiet places to spend time, lots of loud places to spend time, excellent entertainment and lots of choice at the buffet although the only one we used was breakfast in the Windjammer. Drinks were fine - we tended to go for the 2-1 which were OK although they all tended to be too sweet. The stateroom was roomy enough, lots of closet and storage space. The bathroom amenities are lacking - only shampoo and poor quality soap - so be prepared to take your own cream rinse/conditioner and shower cap. There was tea-making equipment but not coffee. Our cabin was right across from the elevators and we never heard a sound - either from the hallways or adjoining rooms. Staff were very friendly, especially the dining room.
TV channel selection was very minimal - they don't want you to stay in your cabin - but it would be nice to keep up with the news of the world. The last 3 days at sea we had CNN in Spanish and we don't speak Spanish. Also the internet service on board went down which I am sure caused a lot of people grief - these days we tend to rely on the internet to conduct business, make reservations, etc.
Overall, our next choice will once again be Celebrity. Less
Great location right across from elevator hallway, very quiet, lots of closet and storage, extremely comfortable bed.
