Our cruise on Rhapsody of the Seas was greater than we expected. The food in the dining room was top notch plus the wait staff made our dining experience a lot of fun. However, the food in the buffet could have been more varied. Our steward made life easy and comfortable for us. He was always watching out for our best interests. For example, dining in the Princess dining room as not as good, but their buffet was much better. There was a much larger selection and it was not obvious that leftovers were not being used in the next day's dishes. As for the entertainment, we could not wait to get to the Royal Caribbean's theater to see some of the greatest entertainers we ever seen. The lectures by U. of Hawaii Professor Emeritus Gary Fuller were excellent would have liked a longer time frame for each of them. We would cruise again with Royal Caribbean in a heartbeat.

the luau was very overpriced for what we got. We do not believe this was much like a true "native" luau.

The food at the Tropical Plantation was poor but priced as top notch. The Maui Ocean Center was fantastic.

Great experience and fun. The Captain did a great 360 degrees so both sides of the ship could view the lava flow at night.
