Rahpsody of the Seas - Seattle to Juneau, Skagway, British Columbia

Sail Date: July 04, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Suite

Scenery spectacular.  Food on the boat mediocre at best.  Waiter recommended chicken cordon bleu.  Deep fried with a bone in it.  Think about that.  Lasagna was horrible.  Had Junior  Suite on back of the boat.  That was great.  Room very nice.  The main nighttime entertainment again mediocre.   Movie night was good.  On cruising days not much of interest to do on the boat.  Thank goodness for the World Cup.  Specialty restaurants very good.  Reserve three nights get 20% discount - worth it.   Salad bar at lunch in Edelweiss was the best part of breakfast/lunch.  In Juneau take blue shuttle(easy to buy tickets off the boat) - 1/2 hour bus drive  to Mendenhall Glacier and hike the Nuggett trail (easy hike)  Spectacular - trust me don't miss that.  If large party (like 6 or more) call Skagway Van tours and have them take you on a tour in Skagway again trust me on this one as well.  (think husky puppies and seeing mountain goats) Much better than the train.  British Columbia go see the Butchard Gardens. 

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
At all costs avoid the chicken cordon bleu. I didn't think it was possible but they managed to ruin wheat toast.
Service and Staff
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions
The dogsled camp in Juneau is overpriced and not worth it.
Cabin / Stateroom


Walk outside on the 5th floor deck when you want to get away from people. Eat the salad bar at lunch in Edelweiss. Ask the girl that greets you as you walk into Windjammer to say anything but morning, morning morning in rapid succession. Get to Windjammer early if you want a banana.
