Life aboard Rhapsody of the Seas
Rhapsody of the Seas sails between the Caribbean and the Mediterranean. Between May and November she is based in Venice and visits ports in the Adriatic Sea, Greece, and Greek islands. She alternates between two itineraries: one visits Kotor, Corfu, Athens, Mykonos and Argostoli with two sea days; the other calls at Kotor, Split, Santorini and Katakolon with two sea days. From November to April each year Rhapsody of the Seas sails out of Tampa (Florida) to the Western Caribbean, over 7 nights. Visit Belize City, Costa Maya and Cozumel (Mexico), and Key West (USA) with two sea days. Between seasons the transatlantic crossings are very inexpensive and take you to two continents. Rhapsody of the Seas entered service in 1997 at 78,491 GT, refitted in 2016, and carries 2000 passengers.

Rhapsody of the Seas features about 8000 m2 of glass, her soaring seven-deck atrium, sculptures and artwork, and RCI’s signature Viking Crown Lounge atop the ship offering 180 degree views of the seascape. The ship is family-friendly, with large facilities for children and teens. It caters for large conferences, Wi-Fi ship wide, wheelchair access, and also couples wishing to tie the knot in the wedding chapel. Though large, the ship offers a good passenger space ratio. Décor throughout is warm and attractive and there are plenty of public rooms, bars and lounges. Though carrying over 2000 guests, dining, entertainment and activity centres are spread throughout the ship. You pay for many extras including gratuities, and need to plan where to eat and what to purchase, so order packages online before your cruise.

Accommodation
Staterooms come in four main categories and 11 price points, with variations based on guests’ needs: Suite/Deluxe Staterooms, Balcony Staterooms, Outside Staterooms and Interior Staterooms. When selecting accommodation consider the view, the level of privacy, and location near to or far from activity areas. All staterooms come with private bathroom, vanity area, hair dryer, TV, interactive iPad to organise all their shipboard requirements, and phone. Many cabins are family-friendly with up to four additional bunk beds, and interconnecting rooms. There are no single cabins, and many are wheelchair-accessible. In-cabin service and dining is available 24-hours.

Travel in style with a selection of five categories of Suites, which are especially good for families needing more space, and may include complimentary concierge service. Suites come with priority check-in, most have multiple rooms and balconies, and depending on the suite you may have whirlpool tub, baby grand piano and an entertainment area, and accommodate up to eight guests. The stateroom’s TV enables guests to request room service, to book show tickets, shore excursions, movies and specialty dining, and keep track of their onboard account. Smoking is only permitted on private ocean view balconies of balcony/suite staterooms.

Food and Dining
For the Main Dining Room, spread over two levels, select from three dining choices before cruising: fixed seating at the same table nightly, at either early or late sitting; open-seated My Time Dining (with pre-paid gratuities) at a flexible time; and early sitting My Family Time Dining that allows children aged 3 to 11 years to leave for their Adventure Ocean kids club. Menus feature healthy, vegetarian and kosher options. Special dietary needs can be catered for by giving advanced notice. Menus change daily throughout the cruise. Evening dress is casual or smart casual. Expect one to three formal evenings in the Main Dining Room during your cruise. Other complimentary eating options include buffet-style Windjammers Café, Park Café, Solarium Café, and 24-hour room service.

Specialty dining (with a cover charge) can be booked for Chops Grille steakhouse, Izumi Asian-fusion cuisine, and Giovanni’s Table Italian restaurant. Join up to 14 guests at the Chef’s Table for a five course gourmet menu with selected wines. Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream is the place to go for ice-cream and frozen drinks. Café Latté-tudes serves specialty coffees and sweets. In all, the ship has 8 bars, clubs and lounges. There are package deals for wine, juice, sodas and bottled water.

Entertainment
A signature feature of RCI vessels is a Broadway-style production in the Main Theatre. A second venue hosts cabaret shows and late-night adult entertainment. Try your hand at gaming in Casino Royale. The new R Bar in the Centrum features a sophisticated 1960s vibe. Live music features around the pool, in the main dining room, and in many lounges, bars and specialty venues. There are parties and parades to join, and daytime Nintendo Wii competitions. The vessel’s outdoor pool area now has a large outdoor movie screen. Alternatively, just stroll around and shop duty-free, or for a quiet time retire to the Library/Card Room or Internet Café. Past guests have access to the Concierge Club and Diamond Lounge.

On-shore excursions and explorations can be pre-booked or arranged on board. Choose from a range of classes and seminars to bring out your creativity and expand your knowledge. The Vitality Spa and Fitness Center is fully equipped and runs a variety of beauty services and fitness classes. Activities include use of the outdoor sports deck and six whirlpools. The Solarium is exclusively for adults. Teens have their own lounge areas and disco, a video games arcade, and the Adventure Ocean youth programmes that cater for all ages. Families will appreciate the new Royal Babies & Tots Nursery for children aged 6 months to 3yrs. And every RCI ship has a rock-climbing wall.
