Rhapsody of the Seas

October 2017 - Rhapsody of the Seas to Europe - Mediterranean

Great trip on a small ship

A great itinerary starting in Venice and ending up in Barcelona with just 2 sea days which were used to rest from the port intensive cruise. The food was fine with some meals being better than the others, but all were fine.

Grandeur of the Seas

October 2016 - Grandeur of the Seas to Caribbean - Bahamas

Lucked out with weather for a great cruise

Leaving from Baltimore is a dream since you park within a stones throw of the ship. The cruise director and staff were outstanding in providing continuous options for keeping you busy/entertained if you wanted to participate. The food in the MTD was fine and with the recommendations of the wait staff made decisions easier. The ports were all great with Charleston, Miami and Nassau within walking distance of the ship. We had to skip Coco Cay due to being too windy for the tenders and some shore activities, but spent another day in Nassau. Overall a great cruise. The ship is scheduled for an overhaul which should make it more comfortable and up to date.

The centrum which was a central stage allowed viewing from decks 4-9 for many musical and special events.

rscola2014's Tips

Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy - Took HOHO bus here also but was limited due to recent Sept flood which destroyed property and killed 8 people. The downtown area is still interested with many shops and a small canal system.
Venice, Italy - Must see for both beauty and engineering marvels.
Dubrovnik, Croatia - Nice old town with interesting sights. Took RCL excursion which was supposed to be 3+ hours but include 90 minutes of free time before returning to ship.
Rhapsody of the Seas Rhapsody of the Seas - Check the itineraries since you may not be on board as much and onboard activities may not matter.
Kotor, Montenegro - Unique entre into the tethered port and great views from many sites. Take a tour with Milo for personalized agenda and insight.
Naples, Italy - Interesting history and sights, took Hop on Hop off bus in visited Architectural museum and church of San Gennaro.
Barcelona, Spain - There are many great sites to visit and places to eat. Didn't this time, but HOHO bus is the way to go.
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy - Great stop with many landmarks to see. Took small van tour with Italytours.eu and had both a great driver and Vatican tour guide. This tour picks you up at the ship and not at the downtown bus area. This saved us an additional hour to see the sights. We had time and tickets to go in both the Coliseum and the Vatican, plus have lunch.
Miami, Florida - Hop on hop off bus is great option and they pick you up and provide return to the ship. The $45 price is also reasonable.
Grandeur of the Seas Grandeur of the Seas - Especially convenient if you can drive to Baltimore and smaller ship with max passengers around 2500, we had around 2000.
