Very nice ship

Sail Date: May 22, 2009

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

This was our first cruise and we really weren't sure what to expect. The staff of the ship were very friendly and the surroundings very tastefully done. Our room had plenty of storage and was very comfortable. The only drawback to our trip was that we were stuck with 2nd seating for dinner which is too late for us. You are allowed to do "Anytime dining" which prepays your gratiuities in advance and allows you to use which ever seating you like, but it was so crowded we saw people from the 1st seating eating at the buffet because the line was so long.

Pros: The staff was very friendly & helpful, lots of activities

Cons: We were stuck with second seating for dinner (8:30pm) and ate in the buffet every night because we never eat that late.

Recommends Rhapsody of the Seas? Yes!

Food and Dining
We ate in the buffet every night which was an average buffet. I'm sure the restaurant food was better, but we never sampled it.

Juneau, Alaska
Mendenhall Glacer is outstanding. Robert's Tramway at $27.00 per person was kind of a waste unless you want to hike the trails
Don't Miss: Mendenhall Glacier
Skagway, Alaska
We took a shuttle into the Yukon to see the summit of White Pass, a sled dog camp and Emerald Lake and it was OUTSTANDING. Downtown is quaint and several of the shops are surpisingly affordable.
Don't Miss: Yukon
Victoria, British Columbia
We toured the Parliment House which has a lot of interesting architecture, Beacon Hill Park which has a lot of hidden ponds and scenic spots. Carradoch Castle is fascinating as well. We didn't do Buchart Gardens because $53.00 pp to see gardens when Beacon Hill Park is free seemed just ridiculous
Don't Miss: The Royal Museum
