Rhapsody of the Seas

Comfortable and negotiable...large enough to be impressive and small enough to navigate easily. The ship was clean, the staff exceedingly friendly and genuine, and the entertainment was fantastic...really varied and professional. The indoor pool and hot tubs in the Solarium were a lifesaver.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
An incredible variety of food items...from fish to venison. The fact that no extra pay restaurants are onboard adds to the quality of the food and variety of offerings.


5 out of 5
A little more outdoor live music would enhance the ambience--even in Alaska.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Some employees have been with RCCL for almost 20 years...very experienced.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Interesting artwork throughout and plenty of private and quiet space

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Smaller than normal. And amenities (samples of products) are limited to suites only. Staterooms have a water boiler for tea, a hair dryer that is not attached to the wall, and a safe, and plenty of storage bins. They also have both European and American electrical outlets.

The downtown store fronts and the train ride
Don't Miss: train ride

Mendenhall Glacier and the Red Dog Saloon
Don't Miss: Mendenhall Glacier
5 out of 5
The downtown area, the waterfront, and the Empress Hotel and high tea.
Don't Miss: the town blooming all over

Pros: The escape from the unbearable Southern summer heat

Cons: The transfer to SeaTac
