Room Type: Oceanview

We started our Cruise from the Beautiful City of Barcelona, The ship ( Royal Caribbean's Rhapsody of the Seas ) is one of the older ships that I have cruised on.the room was small,but comfortable. The ships staff were very friendly and helpful. The food in the main dinning room was up and down, some very good and some not to tasty at all. We ate at there upscale eateries 5 times, there the food was very good.our stops were in Cadiz, Lisbon, Caneria Island ,an aborted attempt to go to Madiera Island & Recife Brazil. We had fun on all of our stops.

Cabin / Stateroom
The ship is old and in need of updating, the bed was O.K. The ship's TV was awful, the ESPN channel was not live, but 4-5 months old, it is November and they are showing sports from July. There was only live CNN feed for 3 days.closet space was not nearly enough, you have to be very creative about this feature.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Destinations and Excursions
We did not get to go to Madiera Island, because we had to be tendered, and the ocean was to ruff. There were 2 other cruise ships docked at the harbor,there was no room left to be docked.all other destinations were fun.
Onboard Activities
Children's Programs NA
A few exceptional entertainers, and a few not so good. All in all it was OK
Service and Staff
Ivan & Guilheme were excellent, first rate at our main dinning room. Our room cleaner Leonardo was excellent.
Food and Dining
Barcelona, Spain
Barcelona is my most favorite City in all of Europe, clean & the architecture is amazing.
Cadiz (Seville), Spain
Cadiz is a nice city to view all of the different cultures that took over this area centuries ago. We had a very nice tour.
Lisbon, Portugal We did a hop on & off tour, it was O K, the weather was rainy. Not my favorite spot.
Tenerife, Canary Islands We did not go here, instead we went to Caneria Island, we hired a taxi for 5 hours, we saw most of the Island and then we did some shopping, good place to shop, fun day
Rio De Janeiro, Brazil
Thi is were we left the cruise, We love Rio great tourist town.


Not enough chairs at the pool or at the tables.
