Rhapsody of the seas mediterranean cruise

Sail Date: July 26, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

Although the ship was much smaller than the Royal Caribbean cruises we had been on earlier, we eventually adapted.  Our stateroom was wonderful.  There were two adults and three kids in one suite, and I was worried that we would be on top of one another, but we actually had plenty of space and privacy for everyone. 

The pools were too small for the number of people on board, and there were no separate areas for kids.  Our last ship had water slides for the kids.  It was hard to find a place to land. 

Our dining service was excellent.

Two of our stops were in Greece. You would think that a country that is floundering economically would be friendly to tourists wandering around with cash in their hands, but they were very unfriendly.

Embarkation and Disembarkation
Cabin / Stateroom
The cabin was great. We were worried about privacy and too much togetherness, but it turned out to be a non-issue.
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
There are only 20 taxis in the entire town of Civitavecchia. I highly recommend booking a private company or the cruise line for transfers.
Santorini, Greece
Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey
Loved, loved, loved, loved loved Ephesus. We booked a private tour through Ephesusshuttle.com, and they were great. Not only were they cheaper than the cruise excursions, but the 5 of us had our own private guide.
