Fantastic time on recent cruise from Venice down the Adriatic to Santorini. Cabin was quite spacious. Ship was very clean and lots to do. Not a great experience at the Speciality steak house and Asian restaurants. Not very impressed with having an 8 hour wait at Venice airport on return home and not being allowed to drop bag off for 8 hours.
We had a wonderful cruise.Thanks to you for arranging it.The ship and crew were excellent, and the excursions well-run and enjoyable.Our junior suite and balcony were everything we wanted them to be. The food was of a high standard, although we found the relentless hard sell of the premium restaurant packages onboard a bit grating. We took advantage of the drinks package, and found that the range was more than sufficient. Having previously only sailed transatlantic on QM2 on our honeymoon,this cruise was a taster for us - with our 10 year old son. We would have no hesitation in sailing with Royal Caribbean again. We also much enjoyed the Italian leg of our holiday: both hotels were excellent and most transfers were fine, although we had less than 5 minutes to jump onto the Milan-Venice express after our connecting train from Lecco was late. We loved Lake Como and Venice. The only major quibble that we have is with the flights. We understand that this was a BA package holiday, which required us to use them or their partners (in this case Aer Lingus) however flying from Belfast via LHR meant that the first and last days of our 12 day holiday were spent on planes or in airports (we had over 4 hours in a packed Terminal 5 on both days). In future we will insist that we fly direct from Belfast or Dublin if the destination is in Europe. That said, we are glad that we chose Iglu for this holiday and we will be bending your ears soon about next year. Prior to contacting yourselves I had been trawling cruise line websites and losing the will to live so to find your website so practical, along with the phone contacts which we had with your staff, was both a relief and a joy.Thanks again for sourcing this holiday.We already have a few ideas to put to you for next year.
First of all, we’re very happy with IgluCruise. We all enjoyed it very much. The cruise customer services & staff were really helpful. Food was delicious and it suited everyone. However joining the WiFi onboard was extremely expensive and not worth the cost. Overall, we very much enjoyed our experience with Royal Caribbean and would highly recommend.
Very disappointed with this ship. Needs a major refurbishment. Room very noisy, had to complain several times. Food not very good. All tasted synthetic and very little differentiation between speciality restaurants and anytime/self service. Entertainment of poor quality. Z list. The only saving grace was the staff and their service. I would not visit Katakolon again. Although near Olympia there is nothing else there. Town very small and no one mentioned it was a national holiday till we got there so everything was shut.
we booked a package with IGLU. 3 days in Lake Como, 2 days in Venice, 7 day cruise Rhapsody of the Seas, Venice, Dubrovnik, Kotor, Santorini, Kotakolon,Venice. The arrangements made by IGLU were first class, Flight Man-Milan, taxi transfer Milan - lake como (Tremezza) ,taxi transfer Tremezza to Train station Milan, train tickets Milan to Venice. We got our own taxi from Venice train station to Hilton, Mestre (Venice) Taxi collect and drive from Hilton to Ship. and finaly taxi transport ship to venice airport for flight home to Manchester. Well done IGLU, all arrangements made in advance, full notification of plan along with travel vouchers and train tickets. All of the arrangements were exactly correct for our trip. The Cruise on Rhapsody of the Seas was good, the entertainment was Broadway standard, the food was excellent. A wide range of passenger Nationalities added to the interest. We bought a drinks package on board with a buy one get one half price deal, generally this worked well. We found the ship spotless and clean with excellent crew, the ship is showing signs of age in places, our outside sea view cabin was a bit tighter than we liked, but we chose the type of cabin, IGLU chose the cabin number 3046 -4th deck - excellent choice bye a lift with many facilities on decks 4 and 5- WELL DONE IGLU and thank you. I cannot fault your service.
Great cruise, superb destinations! For me, Royal Caribbean are dropping their standards Have cruised with Royal Caribbean many times Dress code in the main restaurants is too casual Men in shorts and flip flops, women wearing track suits and sweat pants, even on formal night I’m sorry, Royal Caribbean might have to be P&O from now on
Beautiful ship and really enjoyable cruise. The ship was spotlessly clean and the entertainment was superb. Live music was much appreciated. Crew were very attentive and polite. Very expensive compared to other cruise lines for things such as excursions/wi-fi/drinks etc. and this would put us off cruising with Royal Carribean again
Overall the cruise was good as it was the first one we have been on. We thought the cost of nearly 50 dollars each just to stay on board for a few hours coming home was exccesive . We was very very dissapointed about the dress code for eveningas we was told no shorts or football shirts but some americains was allowed to wear what they wanted, and for the formal nights people was wearing shorts , so with that we will not be travelling with royal carrabbean again .
We rate this cruise 6. Very comfortable balcony cabin on deck 7. We were well looked after by our cabin attendant but not over fussed. Rhapsody is a small ship by today’s standards but we found it quite elegant and easy to navigate and well maintained. Service in main dining room and windjammer buffet was very good. Standard of food was mostly good. Enjoyed the entertainment particularly the Beatles tribute. We are not fans of quizzes but a large number of passengers were and they were very well attended. We could always find a sunbed. Very picturesque ports of call in Greece and Croatia . Did our own thing in the ports and found it easy.
