I am 31 years old and went on my first cruise in 1985 it was the Sitmar Fairwind. I still recall what a fantastic vacation....that is what got me hooked on cruising. I sailed on Rhapsody in April 2007 (she just got out of dry-dock) She looked like an 80 year old after a facelift...a little better but still old! After reading some of the other reviews I felt a need to chime in and WARN potential ...

I was very impressed with the cost and quality. They loaded our luggage coming and going and were very pleasant. I highly recommend them. We boarded the ship as soon as we could, and dined on the buffet will ...

This was my 9th Royal Caribbean cruise and probably my best one. I am from Toronto and was traveling alone. Check in at Galveston, Texas was quick and efficient. Due to hurricane season, we were told that our first port was going to be Key West rather than Jamaica. The only people who appeared to be upset with this were the Jamaican crew members who had hoped to see their families one more time ...

We went 6/17 on the Rhapsody out of Galveston. We had 11 family members with us. 5 kids, 6 adults. We stayed at the Hilton Saturday night. I did not care for the A/C in the room it was extremely loud and made it hard to sleep. (they are window units) We ate at Landry's Seafood next to the Rainforest and it was very good food!! Sunday we caught a 11:00 shuttle to the pier. This was the fastest ...

This was the first cruise for my wife, Deb and I. We are in our late 50's ( I am 4 years older than she) We traveled with our son (27) and Daughter-in-law on their first wedding anniversary (June 10). The neat part of that is that it was also our 35th wedding anniversary! We live northwest of Abilene, Tx and the kids live in Lubbock. They traveled to our house, then we drove together the 6 hours ...
