  3. Rhapsody of the Seas
We just went on this ship in September 2019. I have sailed on many cruise ships and this one, in particular, showed its age and wear and tear. So many things not working and broken on the ship. My suggestion to Royal Carribean is to remodel this ship. It is so outdated. I can rant and rave but that's, not my purpose. The food in comparison to other cruises I have had with Royal Carribean was substandard at best. I hate to talk about bad food as the world starves with hunger. So I make comparisons with my other cruises with Royal Carribean and other cruise lines. It was so sub-standard we chose to eat off the ship as much as we could. The cabin vibrated at night and it shuddered and rattled. We were told the ship was sailing at 20 knots and it is an older ship. There newer ships do not provide that experience Our cruise was saved by the excellent service and the ship is really clean but not well maintained. The destinations were amazing. Royal Carribean, we have had 5 cruises with you before. Very disappointed and maybe its time to try a more upmarket cruise company that cares. Great job on the service. Terrible ship

This ship is very old and it shows. So many things broken
