WOW! We had a great family cruise. With three children ages 14, 11, and 9. I was expecting to be exhausted by the time we got back, but instead I am rested and had the best vacation of my life. My husband and I had taken this cruise last year, and I thought it had been great, but this year, with the kids in tow, we had the most amazing vacation ever. The Ocean Adventure teams became the most talked about people in our staterooms at night. My kids loved their counselors and cried as we left them. In this day and age, especially in Phoenix, my kids get very little freedom to roam, and even less time to do exactly as each of them wants to, usually we have to compromise because I don't let them out of my sight often. This cruise was a real treat for all of them. We all got the vacation we wanted, and did the things we wanted to do. I highly recommend the Rhapsody to all families! We didn't do the ships excursions, I hired guides in each port, and that seemed to work best, we were in much smaller groups (10 - 25) as opposed to the 100+ on the ships excursions. In Jamaica, I highly recommend Phil at , and in Grand Cayman, I recommend Mark at , they were great! Also, I recommend  to get to and from the ship. Get your family and GET OUT THERE!
