Better than Anticipated

Sail Date: August 01, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

Overall the ship itself was nice. On the smaller older side\, but well maintained. The waitstaff\, nor dinner\, were as great as on previous cruises\, but still enjoyable. Enjoyed many aspects of the cruise experience.

Pros: Alaska

Cons: Bar Service

Recommends Rhapsody of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
Size was on smaller size\, but had everything we needed. I prefer the RC ships with the royal promenades due to the spacious feel and easy orientation. Even though this didn't have this\, it was still an enjoyable and well maintained ship.
Food and Dining
Dinner was fine. Never exceptional or great. The wait staff was good\, but didn't have a chance to build much rapport with them as I have on previous cruises. The overall ambiance of the main dining room felt more hustle and bustle than a relaxing dining experience. So many wait staff running around and clanging of plates and scraping of dishes\, etc.
Chops was excellent with very good service.
Cabin / Stateroom
State room is nice with plenty of space and good storage. The step up into the bathroom is annoying. It made it impossible for my 6'5\" husband to stand straight in the shower.
Service and Staff
Overall the staff was very pleasant and helpful except for the barstaff. The only bar that seemed decent was in the casino. everyone else was unresponsive and seemed put-out to wait on us.
Shows were average. Like the cruise director.
