  1. There have been increased concerns regarding the future of cruising in Venice, Italy due to port congestion and the ability to control port traffic. And, while it’s not yet clear how cruise operations will be affected there, it’s important to us that we continue to do everything we can to provide you with a great experience and plan ahead, whenever possible. We know how much time and effort go into planning your vacation, so we’ve proactively made the decision to change the homeport for Rhapsody of the Seas for the upcoming Summer 2021 season to ensure there’s minimal last-minute impact to you
  2. We have five Rhapsody cruises booked from Nov. 7th, 2020 crossing BCN-Tampa with last cruise being Dec. 12th. Hoping to L&S all of them to five Harmony 2021 cruises - Oct.31st (crossing BCN-Port Canaveral) with last cruise being Dec. 12th. Think all Rhapsody cruises fall within L&S requirements - just need to do L&S before August 1st? Questions: . Rhapsody are both Guarantee & assigned cabins - would we keep same cabin category? what if category is not available on Harmony? . do we keep same Rhapsody pricing? do taxes stay the same? .
  3. Anyone know why these ships are in St. Maarten? Also Celebrity Edge is in Miami. Are they starting to ramp up for November cruising?
  4. We cruised on the Rhapsody of the Sea in late Feb/early March and really enjoyed the band Music Motion. Does anyone know how to contact them?
  5. On our last cruise, we booked a transatlantic on the Rhapsody from Barcelona to Tampa for November 30, 2021. Going to Europe just to come back isn't that smart, so we thought we should book the preceding cruise as a B2B. But the preceding cruise is a repositioning trip from Venice to Tampa on October 23 to 30. Why the 31 day hole in the schedule? What happened? Why is there a month between sailings? Is the ship going into dry dock or refurbishment? Is it being used for Below Deck episodes? Did someone charter it for a month long sailing? Did the scheduler mix the months up
  6. Just spotted that she is on the market, maybe this has been alluded to before https://www.yachtworld.co.uk/boats/1997/cruise-ship-2417-passengers-stock-no-s2509-3024096/
  7. So excited to have our Bucket List Cruise Booked! A dream cruise to be sure!!
  8. We are planning a December cruise, family of 4 with college age son and daughter. I have found two cruises that fit the bill, but would be great to have some advice. We like a good beach day and a good adventure hiking and exploring, so open to almost anything! We are big fans of snorkeling. I believe the ships are very similar, but would be happy to hear about the ships. The two itineraries are very different, and that's mostly what I'm wondering about. We've been to Costa Maya and Cozumel, going back would be great. None of us have visited the other ports.
  9. Hi, I cruised on the Rhapsody of the Seas last month. I cannot remember the name of one of the entertainers. He is African American and was a former contestant on America Got Talent some time ago. I was hoping someone here might be of assistance. Thank you.
  10. Hello, Does anyone know where I could find a copy of current February-March 2020 Rhapsody of the Seas Compass, which is the daily program on the ship. Thank you so much.
  11. We had the great pleasure of taking the March 2020 cruise on the Rhapsody of the Seas to the Western Caribbean. As a little background, this was our twelfth cruise with Royal Caribbean and our fourteenth cruise overall. This was our first time on one of RCI’s “smaller ships” since our honeymoon cruise on the Majesty of the Seas way back in 1993. Since then we have sailed almost exclusively on Voyager and Freedom class ships, with one trip on Allure of the Seas. Along for the cruise this time were myself, a fifty-something transportation consultant, my lovely wife, our 24 year old daughter, 2
  12. I was out practicing social distancing while kayaking in the beautiful Tampa Bay today, and just wanted to show you guys that Rhapsody is doing just fine!
  13. What are my odds. Itinerary--- Key West--Bars Hotels beaches closed, Grand Cayman closed 60 days next two Ports Cozumel, Porta Maya Mexico closed 30 days. I guess that leaves me with a 7 day at sea cruise. Should be a blast.
  14. Read somewhere that the Rhapsody was docking at the downtown pier. Was this your experience? TIA
  15. These comments and notes come from my Cruise on Rhapsody on February 1, 2020. We were using the Key for the trip Check-in We arrived at 10:15 and there were no lines to get through check-in. As you enter the building, Suites and Pinnacles go left, Key and Crown and Anchor have lines by status in the middle and first timers go right. Note: Make sure they know you are Key or they will shuffle you in with other people. We checked in in under five minutes and were funneled to the seats. This is where the terminal staff dropped the ball. They did not have
  16. Was hoping for peoples' opinions/experiences. Was on Rhapsody of the seas a few weeks back. Booked it because we thought it would be a good fit with our son (special needs; loves to swim and watch movies). Get on the ship and there was scaffolding around the outdoor movie screen and was informed that they would be doing maintenance on the screen most likely for the entire week (ended up being 6 out of the 7 days). For those who are unfamiliar with the Rhapsody, it does not have the bells and whistles of RCI's bigger ships. RCI's summary sheet highlights the outdoor movie screen, rock clim
  17. Hi all ... I was wondering if anyone knew if a 4 person interior cabin on Rhapsody of the Seas has a sofa type bed in the room apart from the conventional beds? specifically Cabin #2543 Thank You
  18. We are excited for our trip coming up this Saturday! I'm curious about the mood of passengers and crew on the ship? I don't want to downplay any concerns but hope it's still a fun and upbeat experience once we're on board.
  19. Are there water slides on Rhapsody of the seas? When I call Royal Caribbean they say yes, but I don’t see any photos of them. I am not sure if the customer service guy is correct. Does anyone know?
  20. We sailed Jewel last year and had a fantastic time. Good ship, port intensive. Great all round plus our 11 year old was looked after exceptionally well. This was July 2019. The minor downside is that it was baking hot in Europe! I am looking at Rhapsody leaving Venice but October this time. Are the ships comparable? Our son will be 12 this time. The cruise is slightly out of peak season but it is school holidays in the UK. Has anyone got recent experience of ROTS? many thanks.
  21. Considering booking an inside cabin on deck 8 and have a choice between the typical long ways room or a sideways room (hope that makes sense). Can anyone provide a picture or description of the layouts of these rooms versus the typical layout? Pros and cons?
  22. I can't find if there is a wedding chapel on this ship. Does anyone know if it's still there?
  23. How did your ship handle the strike problems in Costa Maya? What time did they make any announcements?
