Default Rhapsody of the Seas in Sydney today for the last time this season (24/04/2013)

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 loved the Rhapsody!

Great ship, great crew, great entertainment! What's not to love!

Looking forward to sailing on Radiance OTS to compare!

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.
