Cheap way to get to Europe, sea view cabin on deck 3, $625 each + gratuities. Smaller boat, mostly older passengers (50+), very few children (which was just as well, since the RotS doesn't have a lot to offer for younger passengers!). ... Read more

We did back to back cruises on this ship from Tampa, FL to Venice Italy. We thoroughly enjoyed the trans-Atlantic crossing, but did have some issues with the ship. It is definitely one of their older liners and could certainly use a major ... Read more

We use transatlantic cruises as relaxing, cost-effective transportation to Europe. We prefer a ship this size - large enough to feel there are plenty of places to go and things to do, but small enough that you get to know the staff and ... Read more

We thoroughly enjoyed the Transatlantic Cruise on Rhapsody of the Seas. Great food, friendly attentive room/dining service, and a plethora of activities to keep everyone occupied. Although we enjoyed visiting Key West, Sint Marteen , ... Read more

Our over all experience was excellent ! The ship is beautiful and in excellent condition (especially for being 20 years old). Our cabin was small but functional and comfortable. I found the mattress to be too soft for my back. Our ... Read more

We have just returned from an extended vacation on Rhapsody (28 days). We experienced one of the best cabin attendants and generally some of the nicest people we have met in the cruise industry. They honestly worked hard to make sure our ... Read more

We´ve been nearby Tampa for holiday and used the cruise to travel back home instead of an exhausting flight. And.... we love cruises :o) So, the trip with the Rhapsody of the seas came just in time and we enjoined every single day. ... Read more

You get what you pay for. Not great food. Staff was great but not much they can do about the quality of the food. Did complain about temperature of food and the staff did take care to bring us hot food. Had a few issues in the cabin ... Read more

First time cruise because spouse did not want to fly. The Rhapsody is the right size ship. Captain took a course avoiding rough water. Worst movement was no different than flying in turbulence. Really enjoyed talking to all the different ... Read more

This was a very crowded cruise and not much was done to make it feel less so. The spaces on the ship were not fully used. Even though it was in the 50's and windy the evening movies were still at the outside pool deck. Why not move them to ... Read more

Over all the transatlantic cruise was great fun. I do enjoy the "at sea days". I felt the crew was "at a loss" at what to do with this many people on board for so many days. I thought the "meet and mingle" ... Read more

I like the Voyager class of ships, so I enjoyed the Navigator. But cuts backs are obvious in food, entertainment and activities. Enjoyed the days at sea just wish there had been more to do. I really miss the professional crafters. The ... Read more

We used to sail RCCL often, but have recently switched to Celebrity. Back on RCCL due to a great itinerary, we could really see the differences. Just little things, but it will return us to Celebrity for our future cruises. Royal is ... Read more

Cruised to get a whole load of luggage back to UK, we are selling up in the USA. Ship fine, but RC are now getting penny-pinching. The staff were great, as usual. A transatlantic cruise is fine if you are happy to chill for 6-7 days, ... Read more

We wanted to go to Europe and on other ships we love sea days. Embarkation went smoothly. It was just before bed that we got our bags though. They weren't delivered, we hunted them down and brought them to our cabin ourselves. The ... Read more

The food was fabulous and the dining room is beautiful. The wait staff kept our meal going at the perfect pace. The 6 days at sea were relaxing except we had two days of 15 ft then 20 ft swells that can make you queasy. If I were to ... Read more

Embarkation in Miami was long and tedious, maneuvering the sea of people trying to get on board. My mother could not get her wheelchair as requested. There was a LONG line of people waiting, very few wheelchair attendants and no place to ... Read more

We have been on several cruises with Royal and Celebrity and I must say this was the WORST. They were very disorganized and it seems that they have cut corners every which way they can. They have the crew doing at least three different ... Read more

Stateroom 9300-excellent location. Chosen for its ports and price, both of which were good. We had sailed on this ship 1.5 years ago. In that time RCCL seems to be doing some cost cutting. Furnishings in lounge areas were showing ... Read more

Heard good things about RC, and had tried carnival, princess and Costa. Sadly RC failed to even match any of those on all levels. :-( Food was mediocre, and lacking in choice. Dining room food was consistently hot though, which is ... Read more
