Rhapsody of the Seas cruise May 7th 2016 on seven night Greek Isles cruise from Venice ......Montenegro,Athens etc. We boarded the ship with high hopes as we had sailed 4 times with this line and we really thought our experience was felt by other passengers in many ways. Up to the day of departure we stayed in Lake Garda area for a 3 night stay near Sirmione which was lovely and Hotel Alfiori provided good accommodation with excellent breakfasts,rooms very comfortable,staff friendly and very accommodating when we asked to change room due to road noise and we were moved immediately to the residential road of the hotel,no noise at all! Easy to get around on local bus to Verona a pleasant bus trip...beautiful city to visit and so cheap on local buses. Bus stop 5 min walk from hotel,staying in Colambare a pretty town,half hour walk to Sirmione but a taxi ride back was very welcome at the end of our day. Brescia another lovely destination too,but Verona is the must see. On boarding the ship it was efficiently carried out and we had a nice stateroom and balcony,entertainment excellent and the centrum had dance floor which meant the ship had a heart...Staff were lovely,very much a fun ship to be on but bar prices extortionate....food not up to what we were used to on RCL ships,did not have the wow factor in the restaurant,Windjammer food was just as good as far as main meals were concerned,but soggy croissants was a big disappointment at breakfast,no scones jam and cream for afternoon tea a big favourite for me....very disappointing....we feel cruising is getting the most money out of passengers and you have to pay for dance,yoga etc what's that about? Excursions expensive and less time at ports meNing you tend to just see immediate area unless you want to get ripped off by paying taxi to take you for a tour....great pity,but nevertheless weather was wonderful and we had a great time but I think unless RCL listen to what customers are complaining about they will find they will struggle to fill their new bigger and bigger ships if they keep cutting back on what they give us but charge so much for the pleasure of cruising with them.
