We were very impressed with Royal caribbean. we sailed on the rhapsody Easter morning. we traveled 2 familys each with 2 adults and 2 teenagers ( 4 people per room) this was our 3rd cruise together, It is nice that the kids can have some independence but as a parent feel that they are safe.There really is something for everybody. You can be as active as you want or just kick back and relax. We did both. we had 3 days at sea to relax and have fun. we also booked our excursions before our vacation which was helpful. It would be nice to have more time on the islands but it is a nice way to see different parts of the world.

Food and Dining

The shows were great! nice variety, from singing to dancing, comedians, and magician, and micky dolenze( from the monkeys) , there is something for everybody! (can't forget to mention the casinos and bingo.)

Service and Staff

we really felt spoiled and pampered, stateroom attendent was friendly and dining room staff were awesome. They made us feel welcomed and went above and beyond !! It was so much fun at the end of our day to gather together for dinner.

rooms on all cruises are small, but you are really only there at night to sleep. we had an ocean view room which was nice.

we did the jeep excursion with a great tour guide. we saw iguanas, mangroves, and visited "hell" where we mailed post cards. we can all say we went to hell and back!
Don't Miss: the snorkling, still can't believe all the fish!

playa mia beach break, beaches and water were clean and beautiful!. we were worried about being in the sun ( we were all a little sun burnt , even after using spf 30) but we got to lounge under umbrellas and kayak , use of the water tramboline, not to mention all you can drink!
Don't Miss: beaches are beautiful!

Pros: relaxing, stress free

Cons: not enough time to do everything

Recommends Rhapsody of the Seas? Yes!
