RHAPSODY OF THE SEAS - not my first choice.

I last sailed on this ship about 2 years ago. Embarkation and leaving the ship was easy and without long lines. Many guests now do the 'self assist' and carry their own luggage off. This is a smaller ship than I ...

Nice cruise

Decided to try a cruise out of Tampa since we just moved close by. It was a smaller ship than we’re used to but we had a really nice cruise. We traveled with some good friends from out of town and it was their ...

Laid Back on a much smaller ship

All our other Royal cruises have been on voyager, freedom, and oasis class ships; so we knew going in that this would be a "fun sized" experience. Not caring for any of the Western Caribbean ports, we booked this ...

OK Cruise, could have been better.

We picked this cruise because we had never been on RCCL. It turned out pretty good.. Mostly seniors over 50. Hardly any kids on board. Music and games were mostly for people growing up in the 50's and 60's. Cabin ...

We're long-time RCL cruisers (Diamond Plus). Our favorite class of ship is Radiance Class, but we've been on a couple of Voyager class ships, plus a couple from other lines. This was our second cruise on the Vision ...

Diamond Plus Members kicked to the curb....

I hate to say anything negative about RC but sometimes they do things that just don't make sense. Because of that I couldn't rate them 5 stars this time. But before I get into why, I have to point out a couple of ...

Overall, we had a great cruise out of Venice on 8/31/19. We had a great itinerary including Kotor, Corfu, Athens, Mykonos, and Keflonia. Unfortunately we were not able to get into Mykonos due to high winds and ...

Beautiful itinerary & great service but food improvements to be made

Service was impeccable. Food was mediocre - for lactose-intolerant passengers, you have little to no choice (esp. at Park Café - everything is either with butter, cream or cheese). You can ask for soy or almond ...

First time, and not the last

We found this cruise to be an excellent bargain. We were able to get a Jr. Suite in the back of the ship for UNDER 2k per person. CABINS: Rhapsody is NOT R.C.'s newest boat, and it shows. However, those ...

Great ship for its size and age

Before going on this ship it is important to know that it is an older ship and one of Royal Caribbean's smallest. Therefore, it lacks many of the amenities and activities that you will find on a larger ship (which ...
