Cabin fixtures are dated. Between the white wash finish and the way the cabinets open and close the room was in need of an update. I think the room still has the original mattresses from when the ship was launched. The beds sagged in the middle with stiff high edges, very uncomfortable. Really noticed when we got back on board in Santorini that our cabin smelled just like the donkeys used to go up and down the hill. This smell stayed for the rest of the cruise, and we never got that close to the mules going up the hill. Cabin is located directly under the main atrium. If you try going to bed at a normal hour you're stuck listening to the band and people jumping on the floor until 24:00. The bathroom was really small and didn't even have an outlet to plug in a razor. Read entire member review >>
Bed quality was poor, thin, bumpy not comfortable. We asked for a king bed and got two twins pushed together. Walls scuffed. Plugs loose - difficult to keep anything plugged in. Read entire member review >>
We chose an interior stateroom, which was very cramped with us 2 adults and 2 children, we were falling all over each other. That said, there was ample storage space and Charles, our fantastic cabin steward, brought us plenty more hangers, as well as kept it spotlessly clean throughout. The bathroom was tiny but shower good and powerful. Read entire member review >>
Deck 8 cabin 8031. Large enough for a family of 4, we only slept in the cabin....always clean and tidy, all the time. Our room attendant, if could remember his name, he was fabulous. Our room was spotless all the time. Thanks again! Read entire member review >>
Tiny room with a queen size bed pushed up against the wall. Not enough room to store your belongings for a 7 day cruise. Cabin was missing an ice bucket, pen, and hand soap. The bathroom sink was useless. It was difficult to wash your hands or brush your teeth. The shower was considerably smaller than other ships I've been on. It was always hot in our cabin and adjusting the thrmostat did nothing. Read entire member review >>
I don't know if I have put the correct inside stateroom, but we were on deck 8, and we were in the middle of the ship both length ways and across (I thought this would be the most stable place for my sea-sickness). It was great. The closet had heaps of room, and there was also room to put our backs on wheels under our bed. There were plenty of drawers available. Our room was 8051. We didn't hear any noise around us at night, nor could we hear our 4 teenage cherubs next door. The rooms were small, but we only slept in them at night. The girls were in room 8053 and for four teenage girls, it was probably a bit small but they weren't going to complain. My only comment was it was strange waking up after a wonderful night's sleep and not knowing what the time was without turning on a light and looking at your watch. Next time, we will book a room with a window just to help the body clock along. Read entire member review >>
The cabins were small but very comfortable. Lots of closet and drawer space, great air conditioning and ventilation, and comfortable bed. The bathroom was very easy to use with lots of instant hot water and everything working well. There was a small sofa in the cabin that we mostly used to put stuff on. Read entire member review >>
Cabinet for the TV just inside the door was nice, though it had to be climbed over to get to that side of the bed, it made a nice privacy screen to the hallway when the cabin door was opened. PLENTY of storage, nice vanity area. Comfy bed, small shower. Read entire member review >>
Room is very small. With the two beds pushed together, there is no room to get up and walk around the bed, you have to leave the bed by the front of the bed only. Small closet also. The bathroom is also smaller, (including shower), than other ships. The room was very quiet, and I liked the mid-ship location. Read entire member review >>
Room 2519 - Alfredo was our room steward and was most professional in his duties. However, for 4 x people Room 2519 is supposed to be an 'Extra Large' cabin - I have to say 'Extra Large Box!' - The cabin for 4 x people was very small, cramped and looked tired and dated. The Rhapsody of the Seas is in need of a refit in the stateroom areas of the ship. Rooms look 12years old!!! - We had rust around the bottom of our bathroom floor and up the side of the door which in my opinion is totally unacceptable. Room was clean, linen etc... no problems BUT - The furnishings let the room down in our opinion. Read entire member review >>
