Ship Quality

My balcony cabin was noisy, vibrating, creaky walls. Moved cabin, and the vibration was less, but still noisy walls. Other people said their cabins were quiet!

Cabin / Stateroom

Nice room, noisy creaking walls. Could hear piano music from below.

5 out of 5

Pros: Pretty port towns, beautiful cruising in the sounds of New Zealand relaxed, friendly atmosphere onboard

Cons: Noisy , creaking walls in balcony stateroom, food only 'fair' on most occasions, long wait ( about 1 and 1/2 hours)loading onto tenders .

Recommends Rhapsody of the Seas? Yes!
