10th RCC Cruise

Right from the start you get a feeling how things are going to turn out. Call it quirky, I don't know, but it happens. We are on Diamond level & get the odd perk or two, but just getting on the ship was a little ...

How can things be so different???

Outstanding experience

My last few cruises on RCI have been less than satisfactory, but the Rhapsody was outstanding. I believe a ship experience reflects the Captain and in our case Captain Rob was one of the best I've sailed with. His ...

Honolulu to Sydney.

Overall the cruise was good, apart from 4 things. 1. Extreme vibration at times, which was not there when we sailed on the Rhapsody previously. 2. We bought 2 soft drink packages, but had a lot of trouble getting ...
