Rhapsody of the Seas Cruise Review by bkstover
- Sail Date: April 2019
- Destination: Western Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Ocean View
The shore excursions I chose were Cucumber Beach in Belize, and Sol y Mar relaxing day in Honduras. There were plenty of options in choosing shore excursion, though.
We docked in Costa Maya, and the pier walk is quite long. In Belize, we used tenders to get to port, as the reefs prevent ships from getting too close. It's a 5-mile ride and takes about 25 minutes. In Honduras and Cozumel, we docked, and again, the pier was really long in Cozumel.
There are plenty of street vendors in each port. Please beware that prices are not as low as one might expect at most places, so buyer beware. It is best to review the daily Compass provided by RC to see which businesses are certified by the cruise line industry.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews
BeachCucumber Beach is man-made, but uniquely special. Free to use inner tubes, waterslide and rope swing. Very relaxing and the blast for kids. Lifeguard on duty while we were there. Restaurant on site is very popular, although I did not try it.View All 39 Beach Reviews
Costa MayaWalked around, enjoyed the tourist area very much. There is a beach area that you can enjoy for free if you just want to catch some rays. Market vendors are a bit pushy unless you keep walking and avoid eye contact.View All 2,478 Costa Maya Cruise Port Reviews

CozumelBeautiful city. You want to avoid some of the street vendors because they tend to overcharge. If you cross the street to Hard Rock Cafe, or other places near it, make sure you have your seapass card to get back to the shopping area. You will be carded when trying to get back to the tourist area.View All 6,622 Cozumel Cruise Port Reviews

BeachSol y Mar resort in Sandy Bay is a great place to sunbathe and relax. Scuba diving is great here as the water is clear enough to see the bottom. Restaurants and rentals on-site. Great option if you want to relax at the beach for a few hours.View All 383 Beach Reviews
