Summary:  Royal Caribbean talk the talk but nothing more . . . we have just returned from a cruise from venice on royal Caribbean's rhapsody of the seas. having been on previous cruises with RC we have an understanding of the standard and were very disappointed that standards seem to be slipping. they failed in so many areas, food poor quality, poor guest services staff, poor entertainment, insufficient shuttle buses available (for which there was a hefty charge) and lack of tenders available at the three ports where a tender was required. I have never heard so many people complain about a cruise - overheard conversations in which I did not take part. I did ask a member of staff to report back up the command chain that it seems their customer care is all talk but no action. They talk the talk but don't walk the walk. (our waiers were the only bright spot in the whole experience). we will not be travelling with RC again

Summary:  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.

Summary:  I really enjoy Rhapsody of the Seas. Great cabin and always enjoyed the food with a very big selection. Love the 3 tier lounges with the 'Atrium ' looking fabulous. However having done 2 magnificent river cruises, my big ship cruises are over, but if you are really young, I think you would enjoy Rhapsody very much. It's just that I have done 10 big ship cruises, I now find the river cruises so simple, so luxurious and love watching the magnificent countryside of Europe.

Summary:  Firstly, I would like to thank Kevin from IGLU for doing a superb job on all of our arrangements.it was all going very well until we got on the ship. The initiation to the ship was chaotic.Could not get into cabin for over 3 hours. Lifeboat drill was v. chaotic. All luggage left in hallway adjacent to stairs for about 4 hours as crew were not allowed into the cabins. It turned out this was due to a major bug on the ship during previous cruise. I booked a soft drink package for my child. Was charged 104 dollars in error which I was told was deleted(did not sign for this) it was not deleted. The journey to Alaska was fine- great crew especially in dining room (Alvin and Denisse). Entertainment was very good as well as all food. Generally a fun cruise with excellent staff and food. The hygiene of the ship was the let down. Our cabin floor was dirty when we got in there and stayed dirty for 6 days. They have Dyson hand dryers in public areas. I would suggest that Dyson sell them some vacuum cleaners. The edges of bathroom had ground in old dirt. The public areas seemed clean.The health dept boarded in Alaska and stayed on for 2 days.Kitchen was closed down and sanitised on day 1 so I was told. This ship has great potential but it is dirty. We did not get sick because I am vigilant with my own hand soap etc. So if anyone has booked- Alaska is awesome. Just expect a bit of chaos and if you are a super clean freak stay off. It will not be the ship for you!

Summary:  I would like to share with everyone what a fantastic time we’ve just had on the Rhapsody of the seas sailing to Alaska. Everything about the trip was superb. From the hotel in Seattle we were treated well. We had an inside cabin which we've not had before it was a little on the small side but at the end of the day you only sleep there! Alaska itself was spectacular especially Tracy Arm Fjord what an amazing place… awesome in fact, we read reviews before we went which advised us to get up at the crack of dawn 5am to see the entry into the Fjord and we are so glad we did because it was a sight not to be missed cold on deck but worth it, on leaving the Fjord we saw about 50 whales which was a spectacular sight. The staff on board ship were extremely pleasant and nothing was too much trouble, entertainment, food were equally good. So anyone thinking of Alaska DO IT!
