It was my 70th birthday that I wanted to get away from and this cruise would be going to the most beautiful Champagne Bay. We had the top suite and it was fantastic. So much room. There was more than enough hanging space and drawers and the bathroom was a proper bathroom with a bidet, a glass enclosed shower and a spa bath. The amenities were excellent only needed to note a vanity door needed ...

Disappointing

My advice to anyone is to not go on the Rhapsody of the Seas, it is a third rate ship, there is no laundry on the ship, you are expected to put your laundry in bags and have it done by the ships laundry service and is very expensive, so obviously not many passengers would pay for the service, both the pools are cold, not heated. The ship looks and feels old, really doesn't have anything going for ...

It wasn't as good as the first cruise we did on Carnival. The cabin was smaller but still OK and nice. We were meant to go to Fiji but didn't get there. The reason was a cyclone. every day the captain changed his mind as to where we were going. Instead of going to the Isle of Pine which was no where near the cyclone, we stopped for the first day in Newcastle. A big disappointment for all. He ...

Overview We were not pleased with the experience with Royal Caribbean. We just felt it was not good value or anywhere as pleasurable as our other two cruises. It was not because of the change in itinerary, as weather cannot be controlled. It is more about the product offered and the need to get revenue seemed to take precedence over everything. This must be a corporate culture not specific ...

Cruising with Cyclone Pam

We have just returned from a cruise on Rhapsody of the Seas and connote praise the staff of the ship highly enough. The itinerary had to altered due to Cyclone Pam, one of the worst cyclones on record. The captain managed to keep us far enough away from the storm so everyone was able to have an enjoyable and safe trip. We never got to Fiji and spent more days at sea than expected because of the ...

We were part of a friends group to celebrate her 50th Birthday Party. Friends and family together and our first time out of Sydney. Previously cruised with P&O out of Brisbane. We had a suite 8514 with balcony, lounge and lovely bathroom. Our cabin staff was attentive and faultless. The service in general was very good especially in the dining room. Bar staff was often stretched and we had some ...

It was my 9th cruise and the second with this line. I must say that I found this cruise far more enjoyable in terms of food quality and staff. I base this on the fact that the formal dining food was edible unlike the one we did from Singapore last year where the food was bland and luke warm at best. We found the choices varied and most of the wait staff very accommodating. We had a couple of ...

Our second cruise to the Pacific Islands but first with RCL. Embarkation and disembarkation was brilliant. Great organisation from OPT staff in Sydney. Ship a little tired in places but generally clean and enjoyable to be on. Great staff in MDR and room attendant- credit to RCL. Some bar staff abrupt- especially main pool area.Slarium area was great and well controlled with regards to children ...

Left Sydney on Saturday 17th January 2015 aboard the Rhapsody. My second cruise on this ship, the first was the same time in 2014. In the 12 month gap, the ship appeared a little tired, or perhaps I was seeing it through different eyes the second time round. Having said that, the ship was still well presented and still a pleasure to be on-board. Boarding at Circular Quay was seamless and took ...

A great way to start the new year a lovely cruise to the South Pacific, Islands. If you haven't been to Champagne Bay and Luganville, they are a must visit. My fourth time on Rhapsody of the Seas, I love the ship and it will be a great lost when it leaves Australian waters at the end of season. Great food, entertainment, and staff. The only complaint I have is that there is nothing to watch on ...
