Overall dated but very well kept ship. Staff for the most part are amazing but many ancillary services (Guest Services: Poor) not living up to customer focus.

Great European cruise by chipper1072

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
Overall it was a great experience. The cruise allows you to see a lot of Europe and explore what you might want to go back to. We love the cruise experience b/c it also allows one place to unpack rather than living out of a suitcase for the week.

Great Ports but the Cruise itself is lacking by lidiaribeiro1

Our dining experience was great and the ports of call are very good. Halloween night was incredibly fun too. Other than that, there is much to improve on this cruise ship. I'm glad I had a chance to visit these ports, but wish I had chosen a different cruise line.

Great trip on a small ship by rscola2014

Verified Review

A great itinerary starting in Venice and ending up in Barcelona with just 2 sea days which were used to rest from the port intensive cruise. The food was fine with some meals being better than the others, but all were fine.

Venice and Athens were memorable by ez4u2c22006

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
The absolute worst display of unorganized chaos -- not the ship's fault that fog caused an 8 hour delay -- the chaos was the way they tried or didn't try to fix the problem. Main dining room had terribly SLOW service and mediocre food. The Buffet was superb. Guest relations is understaffed and NEED TO BE RELOCATED - to an area not near the LOUD music.

Fabulous Greek islands Experience by rspragma

Overall excellent but really pissed that there is no free wifi on board and we were forced to buy wifi services which did not always work. This was a huge disappointment and Royal Caribbean should discontinue the practise and offer free wifi on board.

Mediterranean Cruise by Cruiser80926330

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
Our cruise was wonderful and a nice romantic getaway. Our travel agent had chilled wine and chocolate covered strawberries waiting in our room to celebrate our engagement the week prior! We had as much fun on the ship as we did in the ports of call.

Amazing Greek Isle Med Cruise by amyefowler

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
Overall we had a wonderful cruise despite the room issues. We thought that the cruise line should have let the customers know in advance of the issues with these cabins before they were booked. When you book a junior suite you are expecting more of a luxury experience.

Basically only have one complaint, that being it was too short, another 5-6 days would have been very acceptable. RCL met and exceeded all expectations on this one, overall a great trip. Thanks

the itinerary is great. The service is great. Clean. Friendly staff. The ship has much fewer activities than larger ships. Entertainment was poor. Go for itinerary but bring some books to read while on board.

Cancellation of cruise by nkfamily10

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

the royal carribean cruise was good but didn't have much to do during the at sea days other than pool casino and spa. The night shows were ok. Talented people performing and very friendly employees working.  The first cruise also was cancelled and the second cruise ended up with two port changes.  The contact through was never available and call backs always were needed if I didn't use the generic customer service contact.

Good Trip by eric80064302

See below..we hate surveys and am only providing this to give great credit to our dinner wait staff and register our complaint about a few of the meals.  Entertainment was mediocre.  The Piano Bar guy was good for only 1 night...his routine was 100% repeated every night and we did not enjoy him.  Other cruise lines we've sailed with the Piano Guy was the highlight of our trip...an enjoyable engaging show every night.....

We were hesitant about a cruise but two destinations are/were on our "bucket list." Unfortunately the destinations got changed after our booking but before we left port.  Other than that everything was great.  We will definitely cruise again.

Great Ports of Call by delgadoa06

The staff were great & friendly. 

 

The casino was very small and the slots were not very good.

 

I do suggest more activities and/or shows be added to the sea days.

Greek Cruise by pd116

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The Rhapsody is a beautiful ship. It's midsized so it's easy to find your way around it. The crew were all very pleasant. Only problem the first night we had a very uncomfortable mattress and had to wait till the next next day for a new one. 

The ports were all beautiful! Especially liked Corfu and Kotor. The Acropolis is Athens was amazing and the blue and white houses in Mykonos were lovely! 

Some of the shore excursion tour guides were really awful but I think that's the luck of the draw. 

Overall, wonderful experience. Don't miss trying the local cuisine. It's delicious!

A marvalous vacation by diephuis

Mykonos was beautiful as were the views in all the ports.

 

Rhapsody of the Seas is an older vessel with not as much to do on board as some of the newer ones but was a perfect size for the ports we were in. We went into port every day but the last one so not having much to do on ship was OK with us.

 

The dining staff we had for dinner was top notch. Everything we had on board was great. We had the 'pick your own time' dinner. We went the same time every night  except one and had the same staff each night. Well worth trying to get the same ones so they get to know you and what you like.

 

Entertainment wasn't as great as on the larger ships, but was still good.

 

A little disappointed with Argistoli, the Mesilea (sp) cave was not as great as it was built up to be. The Mythos beach was gorgeous though the bus ride to it was a little scary.

Beauty with a price tag on an old ship by BestOhanaUSA

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We purchased the cruise to go to Ephesus, but that port was dropped week after our final payment. Replacement port was Kotor 45min ride by car from Dubrovnik which took entire day to get on the ship. Instead of letting us stay later into evening like the Princess did with their guests, we left beautiful Dubrovnik at 5PM only to waste time in the middle of Adriatic See.

Price of the cruise dropped after the decision to skip Turkey, but there was no refund possible by the Royal Caribbean company.

Santorini, Dubrovnik are worth the trip.  Kotor was ok and Katakolon with Olympia Archeological site 25min by rental car away has also a value.

We truly loved this cruise.  The ship was just the right size.  Plenty of activities and choices, but not too huge.  I really enjoyed having a balcony so I could sit quietly, when I wanted, and watch the beautiful sea.  The food was fabulous and we also took advantage of a massage, haircut, and acupuncture!  So, it felt like we had some spa time too!  The ports were amazing....saw beautiful places.
