Excellent cruising on Rhapsody

Sail Date: February 2014
Destination: Australia & New Zealand
Embarkation: Sydney (Australia)
We had a wonderful holiday on the Rhapsody. This was our second time cruising on Rhapsody. This latest cruise we found the food in the dining room to be repetitive and very boring. We did eat in the speciality restaurants. Twice in Chops as the food and service could not be faulted. We also ate in the other 2 speciality restaurants and found them to be most enjoyable. Rhapsody needs to start up a quick service area at all their bars. So often when my husband only wanted a beer he stood waiting for half an hour or more while bar staff did their magic making cocktails often 12 or more at once. The cruise director was the best we have ever experienced on any of our cruises, such a talented man, an all round entertainer.

Our Suite was below the pool deck. Never book a suite the noise from above is continuous. Children running, heavy footed adults and the crew moving tables etc at all hours of the day and night. Children should have an earlier curfew. Midnight is just too late. In More the centrum you would often find children as young as 3 dancing to the music and adults having to be careful not to dance over them. The live music was pretty good. Rhapsody catered for everyone's taste. Nice work Rhapsody. The live shows were a little "ho hum" but still enjoyable, nothing to rave over and discuss at dinner that night. Overall it was a pretty good cruise. Less

Cabin review: 8034

We decided to book a Junior Suite for our latest cruise. It was our 40th wedding anniversary and we decided to splash out on a suite. The room was okay nothing special little larger than a balcony. You need to step into the bath to shower which can be a little tricky on rough days at sea with the rocking and rolling not really suitable for cruisers over 65. This cabin is right below the pool deck. We thought it would be sound proof considering this floor had Royal Suites, owners Suites etc how wrong we were. Children and the energetic adults running from sunrise till the wee hours of the night was just plain terrible. So many heavy footed people. Little sleep was had. Even the last night of the cruise staff were dragging tables, chairs and pool lounges across the deck. Never again would we spend money on a suite we would go back to the balcony rooms.
