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 ...

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 ...

It's a smaller ship so go with the right expectation or you will be disappointed.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

I chose this cruise because MSC is a “famous” cruise company. Too many mistakes in one single cruise experience. 1) overcrowded 2) crew is not properly trained to serve too many people 3) Pre booked drink package are not in the system so they asked a proof that I bought it in advance, and even after it, I didn’t get the preciously deal price 4) Reception team does not have ...

I don’t understand why Oceania is so highly rated on the internet: our ship was old and, in places, falling apart. The tours were mostly terribly organized (but very expensive), the food was hit or miss and the ‘entertainment’ other than Rodrigo at the piano, was subpar. We had a huge fiasco boarding the ship in Haifa because someone at Oceania didn’t realize it’s the sabbath, on Saturday, in ...

We chose this cruise for the Itinerary. Israel and Egypt had long been on our bucket list, Tunisia sounded (and was) really interesting, and we had heard wonderful things about Malta. All in all, the itinerary was all that we could have hoped for. Unfortunately, there were some significant glitches/ issues/ and problems along the way. First of all, when we arrived at the Tel Aviv ...
