My husband and I recently completed our first cruise
ever, with Royal Caribbean's Rhapsody of the Seas. I highly recommend this
They were very organized with embarkation, and we were in our cabin in a matter of half an hour after arriving. The cabin itself was lovely, and sparkling clean. Our cabin attendant was Aaron, and gave us outstanding service for the duration of the cruise. He was always friendly, efficient, and helpful.
Meals on the ship were excellent. We enjoyed several theme nights, including Mexican, Italian, Seafood, and International nights. There was always plenty of food at all times. We had choices of formal or informal dining for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Pizza, hamburgers and hot dogs were served in the Solarium, as well as fresh fruit. If you didn't feel like leaving your cabin, 24 hour room service was available. We took advantage of this for breakfast a few days, and the food was outstanding.
There were plenty of shipboard activities to keep us busy while at sea. One of the highlights for me was the art auction, where you could purchase signed works of art at a much lower rate. There was also the casino, the Broadway Melodies Theatre, several bars and dance clubs, 2 pools, the spa and work out center. They offered activities to folks of all age ranges.
The ports of call were wonderful.. we stopped first in Key West, then cruised to Belize, and Cozumel after that. Our only complaint was that we wished we could stay longer in the ports!
The employees were all extremely friendly, helpful, and knew us by name, which impressed us very much.
We're definitely looking forward to our next cruise with Royal Caribbean in the near future!!!!!
