I was impressed with how clean the ship was. A great effort was spent trying to avoid the passing of germs.
The shows were varied and very entertaining. Bar areas were clean and the service was excellent.
The dining room food was great at first and had deteriorated by the last night of seating. Many of us not did finish our entree. Food was cold and dry.
The midnight chocolate buffet was impressive.
We met a lady who was traveling alone. She was seated by herself in the dining room. This is not O.K.

Pros: Good shows, great excursion to the overland dog sled camp

Cons: head waiter that lacked social skills; interupted and rushed us at dinner

Recommends Rhapsody of the Seas? No.

Ship Quality
The decor of the stateroom could have been upgraded. Upholstery is soiled. Our room steward was pleasent and effecient.
Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
Very quiet area. Loved the big window.
Service and Staff
The Croatian lady who was in charge of the second seating in the dining room was extremely friendly and helpful. Our second seating waiter was very annoying. He lacked social skills. His helper, a sweet girl from China, was helpful and charming.
Horse racing area is not comfortable. Not enough seating.
Very clear scheduling of activities.
Skagway, Alaska
Red Dog Saloon was a hoot! Lots of fun. WE HAD A WONDERFUL OVERLAND TRIP TO THE DOG TRAINING CAMP. SAW LOTS OF BEAR. Our guide JC was the greatest! Interesting museum of local animals at the site. Loved playing with the dogs and puppies.
Don't Miss: The overland dog training camp.
Victoria, British Columbia
Liked the Queen Victoria Hotel. Excellent service and lots of ambiance. The Museum of Natural History was interesting and Minature World was good.
Don't Miss: The Queen Victoria Hotel. ( Bengal Bar)
Juneau, Alaska
Unfortunately we paid a bundle and didn't catch fish. The captain was quite pleasant though. Very nice fishing boat.
