Dream vacation after doing the first leg in 2008. Menus didn't change much in 39 days in the Main Dining Room. Fish was disappointing, bland and mushy. Steaks were poor quality on the Sydney to Honolulu leg , so never tried them again. ... Read more

We took a 4 night cruise out of Seattle last week. It was great weather and a grand time. The Explorer of the Seas is a beautiful ship and is in great shape! Navigating around the ship was easy and fun. Plenty to do and see. Main dining ... Read more

It was my first time taking a cruise and I had very high expectations from the review I received asking around about Royal Caribbean. As Hotel Managers in Miami, my friends and I had high hopes. The Check-In process to the boat was very ... Read more

Overall quality of food, service, & entertainment was AMAZING. I can't ever imagine cruising on another boat. From the casino all the way down to the shows, the experience was worth talking about. The attention that was provided by ... Read more

We had never been to Hawaii and decided to take this cruise that left from Honolulu and went to 5 islands in Hawaii. We went two days early and stay on the big island and went to see The Punch Bowl and found my husband cousin on the MIA ... Read more

The itinerary was perfect. The weather until we sailed to Vancouver was warm and beautiful - and let's face it, sailing to Canada in early May was meant to be chilly. The ship was overall, in good shape. I love the Radiance class ships for ... Read more

we were in cabin 1588 on tenth deck. The Radiance has been done over and everything is so new in the cabins. The Embarkation was really bad but no fault to the crew. Disembarkation in Vancouver was horrible. Trying to get 2000 people ... Read more

This was our first repositioning cruise. Wenenjoy sea days, don't get sea sick and looked forward to the 5 day voyage from Maui to Vancouver. However, the strong head winds and cool temperatures meant the wind across the deck often ... Read more

The Cruise Director, Steve Davis, was over the top good. Still can't believe he taught 40 passengers to do Michael Jackson's Thriller zombie dance, which they actually performed to the music as a coordinated group in costume and makeup in ... Read more

In general, we found the ship is showing its age. Chairs in the Colony Club show a great deal of wear and tear, and there was a musty smell in the corridor, on deck 8 and on many others. The service and food was below standard on too ... Read more

This was the follow up cruise to our Atlantic crossing and it was a good choice. The Baltic itinerary was very busy compared to the crossing but there were no scheduled speakers, which would have been a plus to gain a better understanding ... Read more

I choose this cruise because of the reasonable cost and the dates of the cruise. debarkation went quickly and smoothly. Disembarkation was a bit disjointed with longer waits in the lines to go through customs. I was impressed with the ... Read more

Cheap way to get to Europe, sea view cabin on deck 3, $625 each + gratuities. Smaller boat, mostly older passengers (50+), very few children (which was just as well, since the RotS doesn't have a lot to offer for younger passengers!). ... Read more

We did back to back cruises on this ship from Tampa, FL to Venice Italy. We thoroughly enjoyed the trans-Atlantic crossing, but did have some issues with the ship. It is definitely one of their older liners and could certainly use a major ... Read more

We thoroughly enjoyed the Transatlantic Cruise on Rhapsody of the Seas. Great food, friendly attentive room/dining service, and a plethora of activities to keep everyone occupied. Although we enjoyed visiting Key West, Sint Marteen , ... Read more

First time cruise because spouse did not want to fly. The Rhapsody is the right size ship. Captain took a course avoiding rough water. Worst movement was no different than flying in turbulence. Really enjoyed talking to all the different ... Read more

Bermuda and Boston were places we hadn't visited. It was exciting to visit new places and the two day stay in Bermuda was especially nice. It gave us time to revisit our favorite beach and see places others recommended after their first ... Read more

This was a very crowded cruise and not much was done to make it feel less so. The spaces on the ship were not fully used. Even though it was in the 50's and windy the evening movies were still at the outside pool deck. Why not move them to ... Read more

Over all the transatlantic cruise was great fun. I do enjoy the "at sea days". I felt the crew was "at a loss" at what to do with this many people on board for so many days. I thought the "meet and mingle" ... Read more

I like the Voyager class of ships, so I enjoyed the Navigator. But cuts backs are obvious in food, entertainment and activities. Enjoyed the days at sea just wish there had been more to do. I really miss the professional crafters. The ... Read more
