Rhapsody of the Seas

June 2015 - Rhapsody of the Seas to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

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.

TheVillagesFl's Tips

Rhodes, Greece - tour of walled medieval city -- excellent on excursion purchased from United.Com through ShoreExcursionGroup
Santorini, Greece - most beautiful views -- excellent on excursion purchased from United.Com through ShoreExcursionGroup
Istanbul, Turkey - get a full day tour as there is so much to see....our guide Selcuk Ersan (selcuk.ersan@hotmail.com was excellent
Rhapsody of the Seas Rhapsody of the Seas - Windjammer buffet got very crowded from 8:30 - 9:30 AM for breakfast so go earlier to get a good table with water view.
