Rapt in the Rhapsody

Sail Date: December 2011
Destination: Australia & New Zealand
Embarkation: Sydney (Australia)
My wife and I have just returned from an 11 night cruise to Nth Queensland on the Rhapsody.

Embarkation was acceptable except check in line was long and those people who could not get shelter from awning had to stand in rain.

First impressions were good, the public areas were tastefully decorated and beautiful artworks around the ship gave the ship a good vibe.

Stateroom was acceptable but were showing signs of age and wear. Rooms are apparently being updated in dry dock in March 2012.Anyway it was only a place to sleep and shower to us, no big deal.

Windjammers was good, food always fresh and plentiful. You would be hard to please if you couldn't find something to satisfy. We met many new friends whilst sharing a table here.

We dined in the main dining room most nights and found the food of great standard. Thank you Linda for introducing us to the great idea of having dishes of interesting unordered main course meals on our table of 9 being More placed in the middle of our table for us all to tryEntertainment was fantastic. Thank you to Anthony Michael in the Schooner Bar for a fantastic repertoire of songs. Great musician and vocalist and a great venue to finish off the evening. Great to get to know you. The main theatre shows were entertaining and varied.

To our room attendant Danial Tomagla, thank you so much your service was first class.

Cruise director Anna Bass did a great job and was always approachable and jovial. The seventies night you did was a real hoot.

Our favourite daytime place was the adults only inside pool area. Relaxing music and a great snack bar for all day grazing.

All in all great cruise, great ship, great food and entertainment.

Will we cruise with RCI again, you bet we are already planning for 2012 Less
