Review summary

We had a fun time. The cabing was very noisy and it rattled when the ship cruised at night. The staff did inform us the ship is old and there newer ships do not have this problem The first night we could not sleep it was so noisy in the cabin. The ship is old and tired and many things on the ship are just old and broken. This ship seriously needs a redo. The food was substandard. We struggled with it just because the quality was so bad. While we had a lot of fun each time it came to eating, it seemed to bring up a conversation between my wife and I just how bad the food is. We managed to eat off the ship a lot to avoid eating on the ship.

Embarkation

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
The ship did offer plenty of food but at a very low quality. I have cruised with Royal Carribean 4 times prior and I am judging the food accordingly. It was so bad we chose to eat off the ship at every stop along the way

Onboard Activities

1 out of 5
The gym is very small and the equipment is at best that of a home gym. So little equipment and such a small area. The equipment is also very old and sub standard at best

Entertainment

5 out of 5
I enjoyed the evening shows and I thought the talent was very good.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
All the staff are very freindly and helpful

Ship Quality

2 out of 5
I have to give the ship a 5 star for cleanliness. I have to give it a 2 star for layout and design

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The furniture is very old fashioned and very used. Not everything works and its just old. However it always felt clean.

Ship tip

Avoid Rhapsody of the Seas and get onto a newer ship.
