Cabins
3.0
All of Rhapsody's 70 passenger cabins are trim -- but are amazingly efficient.

Staterooms are 160 square feet and have river views, which improve as the deck gets higher. The Prelude Deck cabins, located at water level, feature small upper windows; Cantata and Sonata Decks offer picture windows; and Serenade Deck rooms boast small balconies with sliding-glass doors. Only 15 of the cabins have balconies, and no staterooms are handicap-accessible.

With the exception of the windows, the cabin layouts are pretty much identical. They all have two closets, a desk, shelves and a coffee table, situated between two twin, folding, wall beds that convert into sofas during the day. The beds are a nice stroke of engineering. The downside: They are stationary and cannot be combined into a double bed. The upside: Luggage can be stored underneath.

The cabins are attractive with warm-hued wood paneling and veneers, nautically-appropriate blue and gold drapes and carpets and rich, golden sofa coverings. As for the bathrooms, each has a shower with a shampoo and body wash dispenser, along with assorted toiletries. There are no tubs.

Amenities include hair dryers, in-room safes and individually controlled thermostats. There are TV's, which show CNN, MTV and EuroNews, as well as two complimentary movies a day. The movies are sometimes location-specific, which can be entertaining. When we were in Austria, for instance, it was fun to watch "The Sound of Music" and "Amadeus" after touring spots in Salzburg, which were pertinent to both.

There isn't a self-serve laundry, but clothing can be washed and/or pressed for a fee.

The cabins are wonderfully functional and the storage is great. I love this area because I can look out at the water which is right by my window. The best part of the cabin is the incredible housekeeping service.... Read more

I wanted to take this cruise to experience the Christmas markets and to view firsthand the Christmas experience along the Rhine River. It was absolutely amazing. The markets are spectacular and the Rhapsody offered so many rich musical ... Read more

A few things first. This is a small ship because you have to have a small ship designed to go on the rivers in Europe, get under bridges, and put you into the heart of a city. f you want a 5,000 passenger behemoth with 20 ... Read more

We took our first Grand Circle river cruise this spring (2013), on the M/S River Rhapsody, and I want to voice a few cautionary notes, to help people decide whether this cruise is for them. But first the strong positives. (1) The staff ... Read more
