Chacchoben Mayan Ruins Excursion Was worth every penny! Daniel the Jaguar was a wonderful guide. My husband and I learned so much and Daniel was super fun and knowledgeable. The ruins were beautiful! We took beautiful pictures. The busses to get to and from were georgeous and clean with perfect air conditioning. Salvatore was a great driver. This excursion was very safe and secure. This was the highlight of our honeymoon! The crew on rhapsody was very friendly and accommodating. Shoutout to Max and John the baristas! Also to Adriana, the dining room hostess on the 5th floor, and the servers Dominic and Paul Dan. The ship is smaller, but it’s wonderful for just relaxing, and a little older without all the bells and whistles of the bigger ships. However it’s elegant and charming. I had sinus problems on this cruise probably from something blooming in the jungle in spring, but the medical staff gave me something that really helped. Roatan port is extremely small, but we still had fun. Cozumel was a total blast! Hubby scuba dived in Belize, but I stayed on the ship that day. Read Less

Before going on this ship it is important to know that it is an older ship and one of Royal Caribbean's smallest. Therefore, it lacks many of the amenities and activities that you will find on a larger ship (which is more of a problem if you are bringing children). However, smaller doesn't mean that it was bad. Some benefits of a smaller ship means less crowded, so you should have no problems finding a chair by the pool, a table at the buffet, etc. It also has a good passenger to employee ratio which means that the employees can provide better service and get to know you. Embarkation was a very easy and quick process, and as soon as you get on board you can get lunch while you wait for the room to be ready, which did not take long at all. Starting out with the room, it was nothing special, pretty small for four people but that is expected on a cruise ship. We had a king sized bed and a pull out couch (which wasn't very comfortable). The problem with this is that when the bed was out it was nearly impossible to get from one side of the room to the other. If I were to go again with 4 people I would make sure to get 2 rooms. Our steward, Ash, was excellent at making sure our room was clean. He was always there if we needed anything and willing to help and answer any questions that we had. The food on the ship was excellent. There are two places you can go that are included with what you already paid, the Windjammer, which is a buffet, and the main dining room, where you sit down and are waited on. The other places you can go for dinner and you pay extra for. For breakfast we went to the Windjammer everyday. It is your typical breakfast buffet with everything you would expect. For lunch most days we weren't on the ship for but when we were it was very good. A lot of options and everything tasted good. For dinner, the Windjammer is a great choice with plenty of variety and everything tasted great and freshly prepared. The main restaurant was great too, though portions were on the small side. Just a heads up, many of the entrees on the main restaurants menu could also be found at the Windjammer that same night, you would just be getting the fancier version of it at the restaurant. For snacks you could go to the Park Cafe. They have great roast beef sandwiches in the afternoon. As said before, the activities on the ship probably aren't as plentiful as bigger ships, but they still try to have things going on throughout the entire day by the pool and in the lounge. They show fairly new movies outside on the screen by the pool every night. There is a show in the Showcase theater every night, usually either singing/dancing, comedy, magician, etc. The shows were very good and I would recommend going to them. The casino is a good inclusion on the ship to give you something to do at night, but being one of the only areas on the ship you can smoke, it does get very smoky in there so it's hard to spend a lot of time in it (maybe that's a good thing) The service from all the employees was really good. Everyone was always attentive and looking for ways to help you and answer any questions you had. Disembarkation was just a easy as embarking, the line was long to go through customs but it went fast. This was my first cruise ever going on and overall it was a great experience. I would definitely do it again, but would probably choose a ship a little larger with some more features and entertainment. But for the size of this ship, I couldn't ask for much more and I never had any problems with employees, great service and all of them very helpful. Read Less

We did the 2/16 and 2/23/19 cruises on the Rhapsody. Smaller ship, but still had a great time! First week with 8 friends and the second week with 11 family members and 1 friend. (Children 4,3,2 year olds and a 9 months old) We stayed in #8558 Jr. Suite accessible for both weeks. Plenty of room, storage and could have my husband’s scooter charging out of the way with plenty of room still. Only 2 outlets. I brought a plug in that I could charge 3 Apple devices at once. My husband used the scooter at all ports with no issues. We didn’t eat at any of the specialty restaurants, main dining room for all dinners and a mix of Windjammer and MDR for breakfast and lunch. MTD the first week-ended up with a standing 7:30 time which we wanted for the 10 of us. The second week we were set for early dinner at 5:30, but everyone else was coming from the West Coast and changed to the late dinner at 8:00. Worked out great. Kids were served a fruit cup and their dinner from the kids menu came before ours. They had ice cream for dessert. I enjoyed all my meals- fish, chicken and turkey, my husband liked the lamb and beef dishes. (Maybe because he doesn’t get them at home) Both weeks we would go to the Diamond Lounge for pre dinner drinks. We did more show the first week, but really enjoyed Harry playing the piano and singing and the 3 girls and a guy group. We have been to all the ports before. We did Paradise Beach the first week and Ocean Beach the second. Taxi ride was $30 both ways to Paradise....second week they wanted $40 to get there.....Then they charged us $45 to get back from Ocean Beach!!! Would not do Ocean again Read Less
