Royal Caribbean is a Sinking Ship
"I am a long-time cruiser, having cruised RC about a dozen times over the past 20 years. While some RC cruise ships are a little better than others, they tended to be similar -- until I took the Rhapsody of the..."Read More

RC Falls from Grace

RC once was the premier in cruise lines, from food quality to ship excellence. Rhapsody was without proper maintenance, rust throughout, banisters sadly worn and chipped, paint sloppily administered with many many paint drips on stairways, jogging track and walkways. Lounge areas have many many upholstered chairs worn down to the wood. Embarrassing. 2 star old hotel appearance. Dining room ...

We were on the wrong ship! This was an "oldies" cruise! Most of the entertainment was designed for an OLDER crowd! Lots of "oldies" and Oldie Trivia, Bingo and Ballroom type dancing. But that was probably because there were mostly ODER passengers. There were so many walkers, wheelchairs, scooters, and canes in use on this ship. I really wish my travel agent had told me about that! Embarkation ...

Our worst cruise experience

We chose this cruise for the itinerary but were ultimately disappointed with the destinations as the experience was spoiled by ridiculous numbers of tourists, despite it being towards the end of the season. The cabins were fine although the curtains were in dire need of replacing. In general the ship looked tired. The ship was generally very clean and our cabin was spotless thanks to our excellent ...

First, let me say we very much like Royal Caribbean and have sailed on 7 of their ships, many more than once. Everything about our April, 2019 Western Caribbean outing aboard Rhapsody was wonderful, ship's crew, specialty restaurants, main dinning food and service, casino, cabin and steward.....everything EXCEPT the extreme vibration in our cabin (JS 8596 - aft starboard corner). We love aft ...

We did the 2018-19 New Years cruise. There was a group of 10 of us who have all cruised before with Roal Caribbean and Celebrity. Unfortunately this ship was awful. It must be 50 years old and ready for the graveyard because the creaks and shaking it makes felt like we was about to sink many times. The ship was small with hardly anything to do on it. The activities was sparse and the shows ...

We booked a getaway cruise over the Xmas holiday to the Caribbean (Key West, Cozumel, Belize, Costa Maya) on the Rhapsody of the Seas to escape the cold and in-laws, but I think I'd rather had stayed home for all the issues and the unbelievable and nearly unending noise we had to endure in our cabin. We are not new to cruising, but this was only our second, and probably last, one with Royal ...

Food was unimaginative and generally not particularly well prepared. Main dining room menus were repetitive and pushed filet mignon and lobster with expensive add-on prices. Theater screens/projectors were out of focus, old and inadequate. Schooner lounge space was completely inadequate for trivia while main lounge at the rear seemed to be underutilized. Internet was fast but greatly ...

I have always wanted to go on a cruise, I saved money for a long time, in order to take my daughter on this cruise. I had been given very high expectations from family and friends who have cruised, regarding the level of service that I could expect and the quality of the food. My first disappointment was when we were met at Venice airport by Royal Caribbean staff, who told us that we had to ...

We flew into Venice 2 days prior to our cruise and stayed at the Santa Marina. It was a very interesting city and we had made plans prior to arrival for tours. I was disappointed in our ship Royal Caribbean Rhapsody of the Seas. True it was an older ship, but I felt a little let down. The cabin was I would say average, but the steward Victor was great. Customer Service very rude, not ...
