we borded the ship at 12.noon on lst December 2009.As this was our 2nd cruise with Rapsody of the Sea we felt we had returned home as we had the same cabin as 2008,so knowing where to go for lunch we headed of to the windjammer rest. and straight off we met a family of 10 who asked us to join them,after lunch and a few drinks we went to our cabin to find our cases in our cabin unpacked and the party began.
We were so please to see the the drinks were cheaper than the 2008 cruise which were expensive then. Our drink waiters at the pool deck were fantastic and there was nothing I could complain about the ship. My only complaint was pulling into Brisbane at the Quarry, not a good look for the overseas visitors and too expensive to get into Brisbane. It was great to pull into Cairns city and not Yorkeys Knob. By the end of the cruise we had tables of approx.20 people who met each day and not one complaint from any regarding the ship.
This was our 9th cruise with many different ships and enjoying them all, I feel I would like to do this again in 2010. Everyone is on the cruise for a good time and I think it is the people that you meet also which makes your cruise good or bad. Well done all the crew on the ship and hope to see you all again next year. HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL.
