7 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 02, 2006
Ship: Rhapsody of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 11 years ago
From the moment we were dropped off at the terminal we were impressed by the efficiency. A ground hostess saw me coming leaning on my cane and she took us to the head of the line. Twenty minutes later we were boarding the ship and found our cabin ready. After luncheon in the Windjammer Cafe we found our luggage outside the door.
The breakfast selections at the Windjammer Cafe were very varied and tasty and the seating wonderful.
Luncheon at the cafe was a little repetitous but tasty.
Dinner in the diningroom was a culinary adventure, the wine selections were very good and the service the two ladies provided was delightful. Based on previous experience we had requested a table for two, but these are not available. We shared a large table with two other couples and enjoyed their company.
We took two shore excursions, skipping Cozumel since we know it quite well. Most tours sold out quickly but in Georgetwon were numerous independent tour busses.
The nightclub shows were very entertaining and we enjoyed them. I was looking rather forward to a "Captain's reception but it did not take place. (On several other cruises we were invited to the Captain's table for dinner.
All in all- a wonderful experience.

Compared to St. Thomas it appears to be a little more expensive and less choice

Pros: It's difficult to pick out one topic as better than the others

Cons: we thought that bottles of wine and cocktails were a bit overpriced
