Incredible scenery

Sail Date: June 27, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Cruise was excellent!  We all had a rocky 1st day in the North Pacific but the inner passage was smooth as glass.  The cruise up Tracy Arm Fjord to Sawyer Glacier was the high point of the week.  We plan to return to Alaska in the future and do a cruise/land tour.

Ship Quality
Rhapsody is one of the older RCL ships but in excellent shape
Food and Dining
Typical cruise food. Nothing is ever served hot
Service and Staff
Our cabin steward went out of his way to help when my wife became ill.
Unfortunately, our scheduled dinner time did not allow us to attend any of the shows
Children's Programs
No chldren with us
Onboard Activities
there were lots of activities but we did not engage in any
Destinations and Excursions
The destinations are all about the excursions. The towns are pretty basic. The folks who did the whale watching seemed to be the happiest about their experience.
Cabin / Stateroom
Seattle, Washington
Definitely go to the "Fish Market"
Cruise Inside Passage, Alaska
Get a good seat early on the Tracy Arm morning
Juneau, Alaska
If you don't whale watch, the Mendenhall Glacier is a great, quick excursion
Skagway, Alaska
If you want to buy souvenirs, go to Alaska Shirt on the main street
Cruise Tracy Arm Fjord, Alaska
Just take in the incredible vistas
Victoria, British Columbia
Do the city bus tour


If it's cold or rainy, you need to head for the solarium.
