Things that I didn’t like about Rhapsody of the Sea: Food- Food tasted like hospital food - it actually came out on the same type of covered plate they give you in a hospital. They brought fresh squeezed OJ to your table at ... Read more

I've been on several RCI ships, including Freedom, Majesty, and Brilliance. My wife before joined me on Freedom of the Seas, and that turned out to be our favorite ship. We had high hopes for Allure, so maybe that's why our rating isn't ... Read more

I felt that this cruise was very impersonal and that the objective appeared to be to get me to constantly spend more money, despite having an inferior service and facilities than previously. I was also very disappointed with the meals in ... Read more

We loved the smaller ship size. We read the reviews and feel they were accurate but it was a perfect vacation fit for our family. The reviews scared us after we booked, buyers remorse. But we read too much detail. The food was good but not ... Read more

We just came off the Rhapsody and had a most enjoyable cruise. The ship is absolutely beautiful. While not new, she was recently refurbished and is very well maintained. Loved her color schemes and the overall decor. Plus she rides ... Read more

Embarkation was quite a slick process, we were through and on the ship within 10 minutes! What a good start. We booked a Junior suite as it was my birthday celebration. The suite was ready on time at 13.00 hrs and was very clean and ... Read more

The Rhapsody of the Seas is showing its age. But so is it's crew. Compared to newer designs, Rhapsody of the Seas doesn't feel large enough for the capacity it holds. But beyond that, other gripes emerge. The food in the main dining room ... Read more

This year is the first year that the Allure of the Seas has sailed in the Mediterranean. I was a little worried as, although we have cruised before, we have never been on such a big ship. Transfers to and from the ship were easy and ... Read more

We have taken many cruises, most on RCL. We were excited to try out the Allure of the Seas. While we were very impressed by the size and quality of the ship itself, we were shockingly disappointed by the terrible attitudes of the staff. ... Read more
