The Rhapsody of the Seas is mediocre at best. Older and dated ship. You had to be back on the boat very early each day, normally around 4-4:30, this is so the cruise line can save money on port fees. The food was OK, nothing to write home about. The specialty restaurants were better by far, but they come at a fee. Older crowd. Not good for 20-30 year olds, especially if you are single. The club shut down early every night. There was no place that stayed open on the ship to get a late night snack, etc. Long lines at dinner even if you had a reservation. And what really rubbed me the wrong was the fact that they charge you a fee for room service and that they charge you for the bottled water in the room even if you buy a beverage package. I did not spent $60 a day on a beverage package to hear that the water in the room was from a "different inventory." Lastly, don't waste your money on the internet it was not compatible with Apple IOS 9 and was down half the time we were at sea.
