Pleasantly surprised with the charm of this little ship.

Embarkation was super easy because of the option to check in with expedited check in. I highly recommend taking advantage of it any time it is offered. I had heard so many things, good and bad, about ...

We chose this itinerary because of the wonderful ports and 4 days at sea, which we really enjoy. The weather was magnificent! Lots of “older citizens” on this trip! Wow! Many are demanding and quite cheap! ...

RHAPSODY OF THE SEAS - not my first choice.

I last sailed on this ship about 2 years ago. Embarkation and leaving the ship was easy and without long lines. Many guests now do the 'self assist' and carry their own luggage off. This is a smaller ship than I ...
