Rhapsody of the Seas

7 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)

Sail date: December 21, 2019

Ship: Rhapsody of the Seas

Cabin number: 7103

Traveled as: Couple

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Review summary

Not a good itinerary for those who can not walk for a distance. Cabins are two small for larger individuals. Lot of trivia games for those who like them. Mostly music trivia. Don't go if you expect a lot to do on the ship. Maybe because it was Christmas and had to do more for the Children. Shops on board had very little and offered the same items everyday. Prices were high for items you can buy a Kohl's Or Belks

Onboard Activities

Some trivia, spa. Not many offered. Tried to play slots to pass some time. The machines say penny, dime, nickel, and quarter. But you have to actually play more. I did find a quarter machine you could play thirty cents a play

Entertainment consisted of ship's crew except one night a comedian/magician who was a four star. Ship's crew wasn't bad. Just got tired of seeing them every night. Would have been better if Royal Caribbean spent a little money on background scenes. Looked like colored sheets hanging. When we sail Carnival they had broadway type shows and flew entertainers in besides the crew ship entertainers.

Layout could have been better. Centrum was to small to hold games. Most people had to stand around. Others had to stand around the railings on upper decks and look down. There were only two bars with entertainment

Cabin / Stateroom

Bathroom very small. Not enough room for my husband. I am average and shower was extremely small

Ship tip

Check out going to shore with a scooter or wheel chair. Tenders to shore do not take either. My husband only got to go to shore two times

Ports of call

Key West, Florida Did not visit port

Due to rain we could not dock at Key West. Had to pass on by.

George Town, Grand Cayman

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

5 out of 5
Probably the best but to small for three ships to port at one time. Very crowded and hard to navigate especially if you are on a scooter or using a wheel chair
