  3. Rhapsody of the Seas
Embarkation was very simple and quick, allowed into stateroom about 1.30pm which was a JS nice room big enough for three but not really worth the extra $ As this was our second time on Rhapsody (one prior to refit)the only major difference was the new restaurant's which I would highly recommend, the main dining room was good(only used it for dinner).The wind jammer has good and varied choices but an absolute battle to get a table. There was ample onboard activities or you can choose to done nothing at all ,the staff were fantastic on a whole expect for some senior staff who found it a chore to even smile Entertainment was sort of hit and miss but generally good but I suppose its hard to please 2000+ people all the time. My biggest disappointment was the shore excursions which I pre booked through the ship you certainly don't get what they advertise would do our own thing next time Disembarkation in a wet Sydney was ok as long as you had water proof luggage tags the paper ones provided just fell off took over an hour or so to identify our luggage (wouldn't want to be cutting it fine on a flight home) So would we go on rhapsody not sure ? going on celebrity next cruise decide after that.

will we be back?
