We did the 2/16 and 2/23/19 cruises on the Rhapsody. Smaller ship, but still had a great time! First week with 8 friends and the second week with 11 family members and 1 friend. (Children 4,3,2 year olds and a 9 months old) We stayed in #8558 Jr. Suite accessible for both weeks. Plenty of room, storage and could have my husband’s scooter charging out of the way with plenty of room still. Only 2 outlets. I brought a plug in that I could charge 3 Apple devices at once. My husband used the scooter at all ports with no issues. We didn’t eat at any of the specialty restaurants, main dining room for all dinners and a mix of Windjammer and MDR for breakfast and lunch. MTD the first week-ended up with a standing 7:30 time which we wanted for the 10 of us. The second week we were set for early dinner at 5:30, but everyone else was coming from the West Coast and changed to the late dinner at 8:00. Worked out great. Kids were served a fruit cup and their dinner from the kids menu came before ours. They had ice cream for dessert. I enjoyed all my meals- fish, chicken and turkey, my husband liked the lamb and beef dishes. (Maybe because he doesn’t get them at home) Both weeks we would go to the Diamond Lounge for pre dinner drinks. We did more show the first week, but really enjoyed Harry playing the piano and singing and the 3 girls and a guy group. We have been to all the ports before. We did Paradise Beach the first week and Ocean Beach the second. Taxi ride was $30 both ways to Paradise....second week they wanted $40 to get there.....Then they charged us $45 to get back from Ocean Beach!!! Would not do Ocean again Read Less

The ship was clean and well maintained, however, the style was outdated. The food looked a lot better than it tasted. The food tasted bland, but was edible. The saving grace was the service. Wonderful service across the board. Everyone was pleasant, friendly, professional and smiling at all times. The main dining room staff were stars. Our server and assistant waiter were wonderful, Socorro and Fernando. Maria in the main dining room was wonderful as well as Isabella. The week I traveled had mostly seniors and a few families with small children. My son's ages 10 and 8 chose not to go to kids club since it was geared towards smaller children. MSC cruises had a better children's program in my opinion. Although I had a wonderful trip, I wish the ship was more modern and had more entertainment such as movie theatre, game room for kids with board games, pool table, etc...however, the service more than made up for it.

We chose the cruise because of the itinerary and the fact that it was a smaller ship. We had sailed Oasis last April so we wanted to try something new. Our room was great and the room attendant was very friendly and helpful. We had lots more storage than we had in our cabin on Oasis, so this was a nice surprise. We enjoyed the food at the Windjammer over the Main Dining Room. There was much more variety and the staff were helpful and very nice. The wait staff in the MDR seemed very overwhelmed which did not make for a relaxing experience. We enjoyed visiting the ports of Key West and Cozumel. The weather couldn't have been better. We took a trolley tour in Key West and went to Playa Mia in Cozumel. We also shopped in both ports and had a great time. The ocean got really choppy when we were approaching the port of Belize. The waves and winds were high and the ship was ROCKING and ROLLING for what seemed like three solid days. Vomit bags could be found throughout the ship for 'just in case'. The ship captain kept us up to date on the weather conditions so much so that several cruisers were scared off from attending their excursions. Many canceled. Once we arrived in Belize, we took a tender to Starfish Island and experienced a laid back beach day in Paradise. We had lunch and floated in the water for almost five hours, but could not do much else due to the high winds. It turned out OK, but I was ready to go back to the ship after 3 hours. The next day, we were supposed to dock at Costa Maya, but could not due to adverse weather conditions. We had an unexpected day at sea followed by an expected one. The cruise Director and staff did an excellent job at keeping passengers entertained with trivia games,bingo, game shows, live music, comedians, dance lessons, and more. It was the most entertaining ship we've ever been on. I can't forget to mention how wonderful the cruise staff were. You could tell that everyone liked one another and they all went above and beyond guest expectations to ensure that we all had a great vacation. Since the ship was so small, it felt like you really got to 'know' the other cruisers and staff because it you kept seeing them again and again. They all worked so incredibly hard and engaged with their guests. We tried to thank them as often as possible. We attended the cruise with our two children who both loved going to Adventure Ocean. I will say that the ship could really use more family friendly activities. Most of the entertainment content was geared toward singles, empty nesters, and retirees. Overall, we had a great experience, and would sail with Rhapsody again! We booked another cruise for February of 2020. This time on Adventure. Read Less
