June 2015 - 11 Night Aegean Sea Exploration (Istanbul Roundtrip) Cruise on Rhapsody of the Seas
Aegean Sea cruise on Royal Caribbean Rhapsody of the Seas June 1 - 12, 2015
The ports visited were fantastic. The ship was beautiful, but we were disappointed with the main courses at lunch in the WIndjammer buffet and dinner in the main dining room.
We got a family Ocean view room which provided extra room and closet space which was a great plus.
Royal Caribbean did a great job of boading the ship and handing the entry and return at all of the ports visited which included two ports in Turkey after leaving from Istanbul and four islands in Greece -- Santirini (our favorite for natural beauty), Rhodes, Mykinos, and Creete as well as Athens.
Our agent at United.Com did not get us some of the perks that other crusiers in similar Ocean View cabins were offered such as Buy One Get One Free on Beverage Package and Internet Usage.
All of the excursion tour guides were excellent. We booked a number of excursions through United.Com that used ShoreExcursionGroup to link with local companies. As promised, most of these tours had smaller groups (about 12 average) which provided an improved experience (and lower price) than the excursions booked through Royal Caribbean. Our best two guides were TheoDora in Athens and Selcuk Ersan in Istanbul.
