September 2016 - Rhapsody of the Seas to Europe
We have cruised over 10 times (mostly in Europe) on many different ships and we have mixed views on this particular cruise. Good: Ports of call were outstanding. Stateroom attendant was nice and did an adequate job. Folded towels were humorous, and room kept nicely. Wait staff in dining rooms friendly. Not so good: ship felt old and dated, noticed rust everywhere and windows were too dirty to see clearly. (exterior). Floors were extremely slippery in buffet dining-I almost fell a couple times early on, and finally did FALL on second to last day. Embarrassing, mildly bruised but not scarred for life. Food was luke warm 90% of the time, which really bothered my better half. Constantly low or out of cups, soft serve ice cream and cones, slow in replenishing. A few of the personel on board acted condecending or outride rude at times, (not the wait staff-they were always pleasant). The noise level at pool deck was irritating-wayyyy too loud (canned music). Lastly: to have to pay for water when taking an excursion is flat out wrong. Water should always be included.
