Food and Dining

3 out of 5
This being my third time experience on the Rhapsody of the Seas, I've noticed the food quality has declined over the years, but overall, I enjoyed dining. Room service menu was pretty limited. The midnight buffets are no longer, except for Gala night (midnight) buffet.

Great shows, although some nights, they only offered 1 show only. Usually they had a early show and a later show, so you can choose, according to your dining or scheduling. They offered variety of onboard games and entertainment, such as Bingo, their version of the Newlywed game, etc.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
Didn't use this service on this particular trip, but used the Children's program in past cruises.

Service and Staff

Overall, the ship staff were friendly, helpful and worked hard to make sure your cruise experience was positive.

Ship Quality

Ship was clean. Beautiful decor. The ship wasn't too big and it wasn't too small. Plenty of things to do at your own pace.

Cabin / Stateroom

We stayed in the junior suite this time, and it was well worth it. I was amazed at the size of our porch/deck. This was not a small balcony. The room was spacious, and the bathroom had a tub! Our cabin steward was friendly and kept our suite clean several times a day. The room was quiet, and the beds comfortable.

My least favorite port. Great place for snorkling or scuba diving though.
Don't Miss: Swimming with the stingrays
