Rhapsody of the Seas

7 Night Alaska Sawyer Glacier (Seattle To Vancouver)

Sail Date: September 02, 2011

Ship: Rhapsody of the Seas

Cabin Type: Oceanview

Traveled As: Couple

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Review Summary

The ship was very clean, the staff extremely attentive. The food was good with a very good selection for everyone, including those on special diets. If I were to do this over I would take this trip in June or early July when there is a much better chance of dry clear weather. I would not do Sept.again. If possible check the weather before purchasing tours as almost all are available on the ship or when you arrive at the port. Many people we spoke with were disappointed because the weather prevented them from seeing what they thought they would see. as was our case..

Would like more info on ports other than the same shopping about the jewelry stores you find at every port from the Caribbean to Mexico to Alaska, and things to purchase...most of the souvenirs made in China
