Review summary

I like the cruise but was a little dissapointed in some of the service and food compared to last hear.I like the size of the Rhapsody it is easy to get around. They need to stock some new merchsndise in the shops. All the same stuff as last year. It is a little classless how they try to promote drink packages and the gormet resteraunts on board.

Loved the solarium and pool. Suana was great but door to steamroom would not open. Attendants did not seem to understand what we were trying to tell them. Dance exercise was fun.

Layout of room is hard to get around. The sofa is of no use and just takes up needed space. The floor was not too clean. Needs shampooing. Hard to control temperature. Gets very cold.
