Review summary

Our daughter n husband was first time cruisers so we picked Rapsody out of tampa because we would sail into 4 ports instead of three. The four ports didn't happen. Plus there was a mixup for them with an excursion where it was cancelled n they we Not notified which they were looking forward to. Will not go on that size, small, ship again. The Liberty docked we didn't.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
We were confused because the windjammer was up front instead of in the back as the Freedom n Oasis series ships are. also the solarium was enclosed and very very uncomfortably hot could not use the pool or jacuzzi it was like a super hot sauna under that glass.that ship should be traveling to Alaska where the the pool and jacuzzi in the solarium could be used. 😁

Cabin / Stateroom
