A smaller ship to be sure, BUT a fabulous entertainment team and lots of club activities that kept all the teens and younger ones in our gettogether really entertained. The food was great. The Windjammer - the main cafe for eating ...
We have sailed with RC the second time, last year we sailed The Harmony. So, we tried not to compare The Rhapsody with The Harmony because these are two different worlds of ships.
Boarding and leaving the ship went very smoothly as did ...
Would not recommend to sail with Royal Carribean.
Food is average, except in speciality restaurant Chops, drinks are too expensive, too much pushing to purchase additional services as basic provided quite poor.
Standards have ...
As 7 ladies celebrating a special birthday this was a new experience for all of us. All went smoothly even when raining on our return to Venice. RC are 100% pros at this smooth, well informed operation.
Our rooms were smaller than ...
This was our first time on a cruise and it surely will not be the last. This has been a most positive experience. The Rhapsody of the Seas consists of fantastic service, clean cabins, fantastic food with a great variety and great ...
We really enjoyed our cruise, a few constructive comments to make it even better;
* Embarkation was spoiled by the high pressure selling of restaurant upgrades etc., at a time when passengers are trying to find their bearings. This ...
Our group of 10 choose this cruise for the ports of call, especially Dubrovnik, Croatia.
The "Rhapsody of the Seas" is a great little ship with a friendly hard working crew. Although the ship is a bit older, ...
we have sailed with royal caribbean many times but usually on the larger ships.. the ship was ok but our stateroom 3504 on deck 3 was terrible, avoid at all costs. we were woken very early by the sound of thrusters or the anchor being ...
Our first Royal Caribbean cruise enjoyed the diversity of nationality on board
RC excursions absolute rip off price wise
Staff and food made the trip
Drinks packages over priced we booked due to the old ...
We wanted 7 days in the Greek region with Royal Carribian .
We choosed a trip which was suitable for our time frame
We knew that everything is very well organised with this cruise company .
Embarkation and disembarkation went ...
We saw the details for the cruise in a national newspaper.
THE GOOD POINTS
The ship was impressive and very clean.
Cabins were small but adequate.
Entertainment in the theatre was very good, with a nightly cavalcade of a ...
We chose our cruise for the destinations on the itinerary. Although we have previously cruised with Disney, we decided our first holiday without children should be with another line. The ship was well appointed, the cabin spacious with a ...
We select Royal Caribbea because believe taht they have the best service, ships, routes and their workers are the best. I think if possible to offer more shore excursions at ports, in order to squeeze every site, they are super ...
We chose this cruise to visit some places we hadn't been to before.. We had a great deal through Royal Caribbean direct, including the deluxe drinks package. A must for all future cruises!
The ship was one of the smaller ones in the ...
Our overall experience on the Rhapsody was excellent. This is our seventh cruise and our fifth with Royal Caribbean, which is our preferred cruise line. We chose this cruise for its itinerary, which embarked from Venice, Italy and ...
This is our first cruise and it was really amazing, all in general was excellent. The port that we called were beautiful and all the people very kind.
The activities during the cruising days are perfect if you only want to get relax or ...
Black Friday deal which was good value for money. We enjoyed the ports of Kotor, Dubrovnik and Santorini. We were disappointed with Katakolon as to enjoy this stop you had to book a shore excursion. We felt we could have had the first day ...
We joined Rhapsody in Venice after 3 nights at Lake Garda. Transferring from Venice St Lucia rail station to the ship was easy via the excellent Venice People Mover. Embarkation was smooth and efficient as usual and cabins were ready by ...
Wonderful first experience of cruising!Chose this cruise because it fitted in with my holiday schedule and cruise itinerary. Ebarking and disembarking went so smoothly and was well organised, it's so much better than an airport and you ...
The dining room and the theater were in great shape. Our wait staff were terrific and made our dinners there wonderful. There was one night in which the food didn't seem to appeal to any of us and I was disappointed that there was not ...
Twas OK but...
Am not a first-time cruiser though this was my first time on an RC ship. 7 nights from Venice to Dubrovnik, Kotor, Santorini & Katakolon.
Positive aspects -
1. Enjoyable theatre entertainment that should appeal ...
This was my sixth cruise and was easily the worst. Food varied in quality from excellent to poor. Even some of the most simply dishes were poor. The Cruise Director over hyped everything. Entertainment was embarrassing. Upselling was in ...
The cruise ship was recommended by a well travelled work colleague and a balcony suite number 7608 which was very quiet and central to all facilities.
I believe for the extra 4000 Aus dollars for a balcony suite was quite excessive and ...
Departure city was Venice. We had visited venice before and loved it. However its a no go area for us now. Too many undesireables hanging around and every shop we went into tried to short change us. All other countries were good. ...
We have cruised with Royal Caribbean once before so knew what to expect. Rhapsody was a smaller, older ship but lived up to all expectations. The dining experience was fantastic both in the informal Windjammer restaurant and also the main ...
