  3. Rhapsody of the Seas
Chose to go with 2 couples. Never cruised with Royal Caribbean, they had. Overall the cruise experience was good. Food can be hit or miss. Service is very good, everyone is friendly and helpful. I would chose RC again. We were in a balcony cabin. Plenty of closet space, cannot say the same for shower space, just adequate. Take your own soap and shampoo. The one push container in shower didn’t suds up. Only provided one towel set per person. One of the older, smaller ships but clean and maintained. Drinks were interesting to order. Each bar tender had his own version of Mai Tai. All were good, though. Still can’t decide if deluxe beverage package was worth it. If the red wine is over $ 12, you are charged the difference. Better wines were over $12. No package will cost you $2 for water when leaving for excursion. Two excursions were cancelled due to rough water(snorkeling) or high water (cave tubing). They don’t tell you until off the ship and down the pier (long walk) but good alternatives offered. However, it is not taken off your credit card, given as shipboard credit. My friend didn’t keep up with her onboard account and lost $44 when not spent.
