This was our 14th cruise and it was for us to celebrate our 57th wedding anniversary. We have experienced cruising on 7 different cruise lines, some as small as 500 passengers and on some as large as 3,000+ passengers. This was our 3rd different RCCL ship, and we have never been disappointed with RCCL. The ship was exceptionally clean, not a day passed that we didn't see multiple crew members cleaning bannisters, windows, floors, etc. Without a doubt, the crew on the Rhapsody of the Seas, overall, was the the most friendly and courteous that we had ever experienced. Being retired from an executive position at Walt Disney World I am very qualified to access guest relations, and this crew would have passed approval at Disney. The entertainment was varied to appeal to all desired tastes and was indeed entertaining. We always prefer having our dinners in the Main Dining Room, after all, this is one of the special features in cruising. Our waiter and his assistant, both from China, were the best we have ever experienced. After our 1st night of dining and selecting particular beverages and breads, we found those same items already awaiting us each night when we arrived at our sittings at the table. Our ports were all enjoyable and interesting. Debarkation in Honolulu was exceptionally quick and easy. The only slightly inconvenience that we experienced were delays in tendering, using the ships boats, several times. The Captains updates each noon were delightful, very informative, friendly, and we could even understand what he was saying, clean English. I am right now working on arranging for us to later in 2012 to take a Panama Canal Cruise on a RCCL ship.
