7 Day Island Hop (with a toddler)
"When our 20-something passenger bus arrived back at the ship a little after noon our daughter was sound asleep in our arms, but when we put her down for a nap in our room she woke up and announced that she wanted to go to the kids club, and WITHOUT US.After completing some souvenir shopping on the walk back to the ship we picked up our daughter from Adventure Ocean around 1, had a quick lunch at Windjammer, and then to the pool deck for a relaxing afternoon of swimming (with some frozen drinks and ice cream for good measure)...."Read More

Not what we’ve been used to from RCCL

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on Rhapsody of the Seas

Caruisin
6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

There’s been an overall decline in RCCL service since we started cruising with them almost 2 decades ago. From checkin, to room stewards, to food it’s just not the same. We’ve amassed quite a few points and now have a high loyalty status with RCCL, and that used to be worth something, but now you can buy most of what our two decades of sailing has earned if you buy the “key” program. Our loyalty ...

Nice ports. Fellow cruisers not so.

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on Rhapsody of the Seas

Major Calamity
2-5 Cruises • Age 80s

We decided to take this cruise after spending 4 days in Jerusalem and a trip to the Dead Sea. The old city is very awe inspiring and well worth visiting. The cruise left from Haifa which we reached by train, cheaply and efficiently even though the train was crowded and the ticket system not tourist friendly. We had read the reviews here of the ship so were prepared to be underwhelmed but it’s in ...

Bad 20th Anniversary on Greek Cruise

20 years ago for or honeymoon me and my wife went on a 7 day French and Italian rivieras on Royal Caribbean. On our 20th anniversary we decided to go back to the Caribbean. This time we went to Greece. When we arrived at the Haifa, Israel port we had to walk 2 miles going through the sign in process. Our room and room attendant was great! Our waiters at the fine dining was thoughtful and ...

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

It's a smaller ship so go with the right expectation or you will be disappointed. We have traveled with Royal Caribbean many times, therefore, we have experienced their level of entertainment, glamorous vessels, tasty food and overall professionalism. With the Rhapsody of the Sea being considered one of their older and smaller ships, you could definitely notice the quality discrepancy. Even with ...

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on Rhapsody of the Seas

NeverCruise75
2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

The Windjammer was JAMMED with people. The poor staff at the doors were threatening to call security as people pushed passed their roped off doorways. Smokers convene at the entrance to the buffet so it is necessary to pass through a cloud of smoke to enter. Long lines to get on and off the ship, long embarkation process, near the end of which they force passengers through the entire length of a ...

If I had known before .....

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on Rhapsody of the Seas

FTOGigi
10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We (my sister and I) chose this cruise because of the itinerary, with each of us coming from a different continent this made a change to meet and cruise in the Med rather than the Caribbean. If we had known that embarking in Cyprus was an additional embarkation port we might have not chosen this. If we had known that Haifa was themain embarkation point we would definitely not have chosen this ...

Worst holiday I have ever had

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on Rhapsody of the Seas

garymc5
First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

I have to say I am now 57 years old and this is the worst holiday I have ever had. One positive note was the boarding process which was pretty slick. After that we had Breakfast on the first day in the Wind Jammer restaurant which was disgusting, filthy dirty, food all over the floor, no tables available and when they were they weren't cleaned. People walking around eating their breakfast, pushing ...

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on Rhapsody of the Seas

Yosigut
10+ Cruises • Age 60s

As a longtime cruiser with Royal with platinum status, I was expecting more of the same from the ship. I was very disappointed with the customer service , maintenance was done only once a day, we couldn’t get fresh towels after room cleaning in the morning, we were not notified that “crew appreciation “ is mandatory, toiletries were not provided, buffet meals hours were shortened, customer ...

Mixed Experience on RCCL: Impressive Cabin, Exceptional Service, but Organizational Issues and Disappointing Customer Support

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on Rhapsody of the Seas

2-5 Cruises • Age 40s

We recently embarked on a cruise departing from Haifa in Israel, expecting an unforgettable experience with Royal Caribbean Cruises. While the journey had its highlights, such as a comfortable junior suite and outstanding service, there were several aspects that left me disappointed and frustrated. Let's start with the positives. The cabin assigned to us, a junior suite, was nothing short of ...

The ship provided the minimum required. Compared to preCOVID cruises it appears cost cutting was the most important part of the ships operation.

Review for a Transatlantic Cruise on Rhapsody of the Seas

skua
10+ Cruises • Age 90s

We needed a transatlantic ride to the Greek Islands, where we disembarked. Cabin care was excellent. The steward worked 24/7, which indicates low staffing. Fixed time dining service was excellent. The wait staff were in rapid motion all evening, again low staffing. Breakfast and lunch in the dining room was quite poor. The staff seemed to have little knowledge of American and British ...
