Rhapsody of the Seas in Sydney today:



This is the last time she's in for the season.

Was anyone here been lucky enough to sail on the Rhapsody of the Seas this season??

Also I hope the Rhapsody of the Seas comes back to New Zealand next season, for a trip or two.

Not this season, we sailed on Radiance instead this time. But have cruised 3 times on our lovely Rhapsody & hope to again, perhaps the same cruise as 'mothballs' but in 2014

It is a good picture - makes it look like the Opera House has been sat on top of the ship

We have friends who boarded Rhapsody yesterday for their very first cruise ever. I know they've picked a great ship and itinerary to enjoy.

I love Rhapsody too.
