Review summary

six days at sea and I was never bored. Very relaxing except in the Diamond lounge, where 900 of your newest friends were trying to get drinks at the same time LOL.

It was the last of 4 back to back cruises on the Rhapsody. Very nice port

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
They allowed dogs in the dining room. These were NOT service dogs but "comfort" dogs brought on board. I am allergic to dogs, and was seated next to a table with a dog allowed to be in the owners lap for dinner, plus scraps being fed off the table to the floor. Sanitation? Wash your hands and sanitize every time you enter a dining area, but only if you are human. Complained to waiter, head waiter, and Guest Services manager (just a blowhard that told me the dog had over $20,000 worth of training and he would not do anything. In other words, the dog had more rights than I did to a meal in the dining room. Later in the cruise, saw the same dog relieving itself on the Deck 5 walking track, not in the corner provided for it. Owner and dog walked away, just leaving the pee to roll around the deck. Dog must have been a Pinnacle!
