We chose this cruise because of the great cost! It was our first transatlantic cruise with 7 other people. The ship had it's 20th birthday while traveling, party was entertaining. The ship is older and smaller than the new ships. It was ... Read more

We´ve been nearby Tampa for holiday and used the cruise to travel back home instead of an exhausting flight. And.... we love cruises :o) So, the trip with the Rhapsody of the seas came just in time and we enjoined every single day. ... Read more

You get what you pay for. Not great food. Staff was great but not much they can do about the quality of the food. Did complain about temperature of food and the staff did take care to bring us hot food. Had a few issues in the cabin ... 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

We wanted to go to Europe and on other ships we love sea days. Embarkation went smoothly. It was just before bed that we got our bags though. They weren't delivered, we hunted them down and brought them to our cabin ourselves. The ... Read more

The food was fabulous and the dining room is beautiful. The wait staff kept our meal going at the perfect pace. The 6 days at sea were relaxing except we had two days of 15 ft then 20 ft swells that can make you queasy. If I were to ... Read more

Embarkation in Miami was long and tedious, maneuvering the sea of people trying to get on board. My mother could not get her wheelchair as requested. There was a LONG line of people waiting, very few wheelchair attendants and no place to ... Read more

We have been on several cruises with Royal and Celebrity and I must say this was the WORST. They were very disorganized and it seems that they have cut corners every which way they can. They have the crew doing at least three different ... Read more

Stateroom 9300-excellent location. Chosen for its ports and price, both of which were good. We had sailed on this ship 1.5 years ago. In that time RCCL seems to be doing some cost cutting. Furnishings in lounge areas were showing ... Read more

Heard good things about RC, and had tried carnival, princess and Costa. Sadly RC failed to even match any of those on all levels. :-( Food was mediocre, and lacking in choice. Dining room food was consistently hot though, which is ... Read more

Keep in mind that this is just my second cruise and I am not exactly a "cruise person." The idea of taking multiple cruises every year makes no sense to me at all. Anyway, we signed up for this "repositioning cruise" ... Read more

RCI was tops in our cruise choices due to our prior experience. Now , it is below Holland and Princess. The reasons are the multitude changes that must be caused by the bean counters. Everything on the ship is offered at a price, the ... Read more

This was our 4th TA and the 3rd on a RC ship. The check-in was somewhat unorganized, prior to them losing several cameras at the check-in. Even with these problems the crew was able to get our pictures and log us onto the ship. We ... Read more

The price was very good, the repositioning cruise is always longer, which we like. The ship was new to us and most ports we had never visited. We like to do different ships, ports and adventures. We arrived in Ft. Lauderdale late the ... Read more

Low cost for Transatlantic and an invite from friends drove us to choose this cruise but 8 days crossing with mostly high winds and cloudy skies dampened our enthusiasm, Royal Caribbean did nothing to plan alternate indoor events for us. ... Read more

Never tried a trans-Atlantic crossing before. If you don't want to be on the water for 8 straight days, this isn't the cruise for you! That said, it was relaxing and enjoyable. Entertainment and food were great. Diamond lounge was ... Read more

The ship allowed us to take a 14 day cruise, with 8 days at sea and visiting various ports in Portugal and Spain. I have worked on cruise ships as a musician and have also traveled on many cruise lines since then. The embarkation was a ... Read more

This was my first transatlantic ever and from start to finish the cruise was simply awesome. Arrived at the port just a little before 11 and was on the ship an hour later. It would have been faster, but they experienced some computer ... Read more

I have no complaints about the cruise portion of this trip, but was disappointed with the hotel overcharges arranged by AIR2SEA, Royal Caribbean's partner. I was charged $513.72 for a two night stay in Barcelona, but was quoted a price of ... Read more

We had been on the Freedom of the Seas on a few other occasions. The ship is large enough with a variety of activities for a long cruise. Our balcony room was spacious and well maintained by the staff. The health spa on the eleventh ... Read more
