Rhapsody of the Seas

October 2015 - Rhapsody of the Seas to Europe - Mediterranean

Great cruise but we're done with Royal Caribbean

We enjoyed this cruise; the ports of call were excellent and the ship itself is very nice.  The cabin and dining room staff were pleasant and onboard entertainment was good. 

 

Nevertheless, we have agreed that we will not book another cruise on Royal Caribbean.  In the words of others, it seems that Royal Caribbean constantly is “ripping off” its customers.  Examples:

A 1 liter bottle of water from the stateroom mini-bar is priced at $6.00 A 1.3 ounce can of Pringles also is priced at $6.00 When our $95.00 trip was cancelled in Athens, by asking employees in the port cruise center, we learned of an express bus—port to the Acropolis—with a €4, 24-hour ticket Transfer from the ship to the train station in Civitavecchia—a 10-15 minute ride—cost $25.00 per person; transfer to FCO cost $75.00 per person (x 40 persons per bus = $1,000 or $3,000!) Royal Caribbean “strongly advised” online check-in for return flights but charged $15.00 for one hour of Wi-Fi access

We were pleased with the service provided by our Cruises Only agent, J.J.  She was knowledgeable and accessible when we needed to contact her.

RSFinNC's Tips

Piraeus (Athens), Greece - Skip the high priced excursion package. Catch the X-80 bus outside the cruise terminal--4 euros for a 24 hour ticket--for an express ride to the Acropolis. The same ticket takes you back to the cruise terminal; buses run every 30 minutes.
Rhapsody of the Seas Rhapsody of the Seas - Deck 5, the Promenade Deck, is closed at the bow. The walking track is on Deck 10.
