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.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
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.

Shows were average. Like the cruise director.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
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.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
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.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
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.

Pros: Alaska

Cons: Bar Service

Recommends Rhapsody of the Seas? Yes!
