Rhapsody of the Seas

September 2015 - Rhapsody of the Seas to Europe - Mediterranean

Lovely cruise, great itinerary

Really enjoyed our cruise - the Rhapsody of the Seas is a smaller ship, ~2000 guests, which made it a wonderful experience. While the ship could have had a smidge more shops or slightly larger showers in interior cabins, we wouldn't have changed much else. The staff were incredibly friendly, the ship was very comfortable and the itinerary was great. The only thing that could have been better on itinerary was an extended day or overnight in Santorini (maybe skip Crete?). Really a fun cruise and one I would recommend for anyone looking for an intro trip to Greece.

efm16's Tips

Santorini, Greece - Try Lolita's gelato in Oia! Very tasty...and get off the boat early. The cable cars have limits on how many people can get up and down in an hour.
Katakolon (Olympia), Greece - This was one of our favorite stops, without ever going into Olympia! Use the little tourist train for 6 Euro and get taken to a LOVELY beach with a great hotel/restaurant and enjoy the gorgeous water. The town (Katakolon) also had really great shopping!
Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey - A private tour was the way to go for us, well worth it, all the way up into Ephesus and a small mountain town with really good shopping.
Mykonos, Greece - If you aren't a party person, I would say skip the beach here, it was quite small and wasn't all that special to be honest (Paradise beach). The town was more enjoyable to us.
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy - This is just a port, but it was a HIKE from the train to the boat that we were glad we didn't take. A taxi van was there and we were able to get in on a group drop off for 5 Euro a person... totally worth it.
