What a great family vacation!: Rhapsody of the Seas Cruise Review by Destinhousewife
Overall Member Rating
What a great family vacation!
The rock climbing was fun, the health seminars interesting, and the gym had the best view you'll ever see (front of the ship) - while you're running on the treadmill you're facing glaciers. Awesome. The pizza was great, as was the ice cream machine that was practically open all day.
The only bad thing I have to mention is that the first day at sea was EXTREMELY rough. Over half the people were sick, as were half of my family and it happened to be the first formal night. I think this is a normal occurence and they should change formal night to another night as they drive very fast through the channel and know it is going to be rough. Annoying. So plan to take your formal pictures on the last formal night.
One other item to note, although you are in ALASKA, the "fresh salmon" on the menu is NOT fresh and not from Alaska. It is previously frozen & farm-raised. Ick. That was very disappointing. You would think they could arrange a pickup while in several of the ports.
Overall, it is an awesome cruise and I highly recommend. I think we got a pretty good deal (@$4,200 for 2 adults and 3 children). Less
Cabin review: FO3032 Family Ocean View Stateroom
Family Oceanview Stateroom #3032 Great room with queen bed, sofa and separate room w/bunks and it's own closet. The room was better than the average room, but definitely needs updating. The carpet, walls & bedding were very dated.Read All Family Ocean View Stateroom (FO) Reviews >>
