Transformed Rhapsody Of The Seas Returns To Service

Royal Caribbean International’s Rhapsody of the Seas has returned to service following a month-long drydock refurbishment in Singapore that the line describes as a complete transformation. Built in St. Nazaire, the 14-year old vessel is one of the line’s oldest ships and receives venues that have been introduced on newer Royal Caribbean ships.


Cabins and Dining

Cruisers on the revitalized vessel will find updated accommodations and dining options. All of the cabins, staterooms and suites were completely refreshed with new furnishings including flatscreen televisions, bathrooms and interior carpeting, while new specialty restaurants Park Cafe, Chop’s Grille, Giovanni’s Table, Izumi and the exclusive 14-guest Chef’s Table now feature onboard Rhapsody of the Seas.


Royal Caribbean’s Crown & Anchor Society members enjoy the use of a new Diamond Lounge, while suite guests have a Concierge Lounge at their disposal. The ship’s iconic Viking Crown Lounge has been overhauled and the R Bar, first introduced onboard the Splendour of the Seas, has been added as part of the makeover.


Entertainment and Amenities

The popular pool deck gains a new LED screen, where parents can enjoy outdoor movie screenings with the knowledge that their children are safe in the hands of the trained staff at the Royal Babies and Tots nursery. Shipboard wi-fi helps guests stay connected at sea, while a digital wayfinding system imported from sister ships Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas helps them navigate their way onboard.


From Australia to Alaska

Rhapsody of the Seas is currently underway on a 15-night voyage from Singapore to Sydney via Airlie Beach, Benoa, Brisbane, Cairns and Darwin. She then continues across the Pacific Ocean to Alaska via Hawaii for her summer season, homeporting in Seattle to operate 7-night roundtrips every Friday to explore the Inside Passage, calling at Juneau, Skagway and Victoria.
