Royal Caribbean Mariner of the Seas

Review for Rhapsody of the Seas to Asia

Sweet serendipity. The words that come to mind over the course of my maiden voyage aboard the reputed royal Caribbean cruise. Featuring a stunning 15 storey structure as well as luxurious interior adornments and embellishments, Royal Caribbean indubitably forges the ideal image of a commodious, pampering, carefree cruise which promises to rid you of all angst. Not withstanding the physical façade ...

I am very disappointed on the RCCL back to back cruise that sailed out from Hong Kong on 3/26/08 to Vietnam and China, and on 3/2/08 to Japan and Taiwan. RCCL was no help on the pre-cruise visa information. I tried to find out if a visa is required to China and RCCL avoided the answer and just refer me to other web sites. As it RCCL was very disorganized at check in at Hong Kong, we were told ...

Pre and Post Cruise Hotels - We stayed at the Stanford Hillview pre-cruise and BP International post-cruise. Both are close to the cruise terminal and cost ~$100/night. Of the two, BP International is the choice. It's modern, clean and has great views. Visas - a major point of contention. I had been emailing RCCL for weeks asking if a visa was necessary for Sanya, China. The replies I received ...

Trip Review: Rhapsody of the Seas Vietnam (Hanoi and Hue) and Sanya Feb. 16, 2008 + Hong Kong Review Introduction This was my 54th cruise. The first day this cruise came out for sale in December of 2006 we grabbed it. We've been planning an Asia cruise for years and this seemed like a great itinerary as well as giving us a chance to go back and have fun in Hong Kong again; it's been a few ...

Hongkong to Singapore - Rhapsody of the Seas Jan 08

I have recently returned from the above cruise. I would concur with most of what the previous reviewer- gribouille- says. Like many others, we stayed in Hongkong before embarking the ship. We stayed at the Renaissance hotel in Kowloon and it was an excellent base. It was obvious that the staff at embarkation in the Marco Polo hotel were somewhat inexperienced and the queues were a bit shambolic. ...

Not so 'exotic' cruise....

We just come back from an exotic 12 nights Asian cruise on the Rhapsody of the Seas. We are experienced cruisers and we mostly cruise on Celebrity. We were prepared to see a difference in the service but not to that point. Embarkation : nightmare. In the busy HongKong I have to admit, there is no evident way to make a huge ship's embarkation run smoothly. We had to leave our luggage right next ...

Having just read a review about our 12 day cruise to Asia out of Hong Kong, I felt it necessary to tell our impressions of one of the best RCI Cruises we have ever taken. We are Diamond Members. The first thing we did even before booking, was to read extensively on this part of the world and then specifically look at what RCI was offering. Embarkation in Hong Kong was no problem for us. We have ...

Rhapsody in Asia--A Very Mediocre Experience

I was hoping for the best after reading recent reviews on Rhapsody, most of which were not good. I was looking forward to having a well-known cruiseline in Asia. I have sailed on Carnival, Princess, Norwegian, and this is my first time on Royal Caribbean. RC was not up to par with the others. Overall, the ship was nice, but the service and food were a major disappointment. THE SHIP/CABIN The ...

Please note this is not my favorite cruise line... cruising on Celebrity,Holland America, and Oceania (even if this last is not anymore to the previous standard, but that,s another tale) is far better than RCCL, but everybody knows that. We choose this ship because of the itinerary and our longing to be on sea while on Xmas, risking the well known too amount of children. Well, we were pleasantly ...
