Sail Date: Mar 2015
Cabin: Junior Suite

My advice to anyone is to not go on the Rhapsody of the Seas, it is a third rate ship, there is no laundry on the ship, you are expected to put your laundry in bags and have it done by the ships laundry service and is very expensive, so obviously not many passengers would pay for the service, both the pools are cold, not heated. The ship looks and feels old, really doesn't have anything going for it.

If you don't like playing Bingo or rock climbing or trivia, there isn't a lot to do on the ship. The Library consists of a tiny space of shelving, with a few books on it, most uninviting,couldn't find a decent book to read.

I would not recommend this ship. In the center of the ship I think it was called Centrum they have lots of chairs where people can sit and watch a bit of entertainment, the chairs are terrible, you sit in them and the backs aren't straight so you have to lie back in them and very uncomfortable. Because there weren't enough chairs a lot of passengers (mostly elderly as they could not get there quickly enough to get a chair to sit down) had to stand up. They would rope off two spaces every night I suppose for their special guests in case any decided to come at their own leisure, and people had to stand around and look at these empty chairs because nobody ever turned up, it was disgraceful.
