Rhapsody of the Seas

Rhapsody of the Seas
With dramatic walls of glass and retractable canopy, Rhapsody of the Seas has already embarked on the course other cruise ships will someday follow. When you're not enjoying the magnificent ocean views, you'll be relaxing in the soothing ShipShape Day Spa, swimming in one of the two pools, taking a much-needed whirlpool or catching up with friends over your favorite drink in one of our eight lounges.

Onboard Facililties
Sports Fitness
We offer so many sport and fitness choices that you'll break a sweat just trying to choose what to do next. Take a spinning class. Work out with one of our fitness trainers or enjoy a yoga class with an ocean view.
Spa
With so much to do onboard, plus countless adventures on land, remember to take time for yourself. After all, it's your vacation! So why not indulge a little and head to the ShipShape Day Spa.
Treat yourself to a pedicure or facial, or go for something you've never tried before, like a seaweed wrap or aroma stone therapy massage. Let us soothe your body, smooth your skin and send your mind to a sensory heaven. You may even surprise yourself. What seems fun and extravagant, is actually a pathway to your own personal well-being.
Casino
There's nothing like the sound of cards being shuffled, chips being stacked and slot machines paying off. We consider our Casino Royale to be a little bit of Vegas, a little bit of Monte Carlo and a lot of Royal Caribbean fun. We've got games for all levels of players. There are onboard lessons for novice players and tournaments for the more advanced. Casino Royale is open whenever you are sailing, so stop in and try your luck!
Shops Galleries
Our cruise ships visit some of the most exciting shopping destinations and museums in the world. But you don't have to leave the ship to shop or see some of the world's finest artwork. We have a wide selection of shops onboard. Plus art galleries, art auctions, and a chance to explore some other activities, like wine tastings.
     
Activities
From sunrise to sunset and around every corner, there's something exciting for you to do on a Royal Caribbean International cruise vacation. Onboard, try the rock-climbing wall, or work out with one of our fitness trainers. How about a swim or a relaxing massage? Better yet, try your luck at Caribbean Stud Poker, attend an art auction, or turn it out dancing in a nightclub. There are even supervised activities for kids. And on land, we offer Shore Land Excursions for everything from glacier trekking in Alaska to swimming with dolphins in Bermuda. Best of all, every experience is delivered with our unique Gold Anchor Service.
     
Dining
Dining on our cruise ships is as exciting as every other aspect of life onboard. There are so many different dishes and enticing atmospheres to experience you won't know where to start: a casual meal at the Windjammer, Vermont's premium ice cream from Ben Jerry's, gourmet five-course meals in the main dining room. In addition, all of our cruise ships offer low-fat ShipShape Day Spa menus, kids' menus, and, if you arrange in advance, kosher menus. See below for dining options offered on this ship.
Main Dining Room
Our elegant main dining rooms are a great place to start the morning off right or finish off a fabulous day with a five-course meal.
Windjammer
Enjoy spectacular buffets and incredible views. The casual convenience of the Windjammer Café and the wide variety on the menu make this restaurant a guest favorite.
Ben Jerry's
Stop by Ben Jerry's ice cream for cool treats in a rotating selection of fabulous flavors. Chill out with a frozen drink or sample from up to 16 different flavors as part of the sundae of your dreams.
Room Service
With so much to do all day, you may just forget to eat. Not a problem. Our room service is complimentary for all guests and is available 24 hours a day.
     
Royal Caribbean
Even before you reach your destination, you're going to be amazed at what you see - your cruise ship. Royal Caribbean's cruise ships are the most innovative and exciting in the travel industry. From rock-climbing walls on every ship, to elegant dining rooms and relaxing spas, your experience onboard is nothing short of incredible. And the service you get will be just as amazing, with Royal Caribbean's signature Gold Anchor ServiceSM on every ship.
With over 100 ports to choose from, you can explore any corner of the world, from the fjords of Alaska to the waterfalls of Hawaii. You can find a cruise vacation departing from a port near you, or decide on a port by choosing exciting regions you've always wanted to see.
Each Royal Caribbean ship includes a top-of-ship lounge called the Viking Crown Lounge offering sweeping panoramic views, onboard rock climbing walls, bars, lounges, spas, gyms, a main dining room and alternative dining venues. The line has a special kids and youth program known as Adventure Ocean. The line's first ship was the Song of Norway, now International Shipping Partners' Clipper Pearl.
