Thanks for the review Surfoz, couldn't agree more.

We were also on the 13 December cruise and since our experience was almost identical to Surfoz I will not be posting a review, not much point...
Adding my 2 cents

I think the food is really good, better than the Princess buffet. We checked out our dining room table and it's a table for four on the upper level over looking the open area so we're happy with that...

US TA's
I've used the same US online agent twice now and wouldn't hesitate to use them again and again. The savings are well worth it and there have been no problems with security, the one I use has a...
Tipping on Rhapsody
My understanding is this:

1. You pay before you go - you will be given vouchers to put in the tips envelopes to give to the staff at the end of the cruse. Most Aussie TA's for RCCL have you pay...
Fantastic
Thanks for all the posts, I am so happy now that I know I will be coming home with some rum.

The recipes sound great, never had rum cake like that before!

Flavoured Rum on RCI ships
Can someone tell me if you can buy flavoured rum in the shops on RCI ships. We really loved the Cruzon rum we got on Princess but we have now run out. Would love to get some more as it isn't sold...

Hi Acrusa

My partner and I did a private all day LOTR tour in Wellington so it will be somewhat different to the one offered by HAL.

I personally felt that if you're not a big LOTR fan then...

I couldn't tell you as we didn't go to the Air Force Museum.... check their website but I bet since it's a tourist place that it would be on a bus route.
