As a member of Royal Caribbean's highly successful series of "Vision-class" ships, the Rhapsody of the Seas imparts an open and airy shipboard ambiance. Natural light floods the ship throughout the day, from the soaring, glass walled multi-deck atrium to the two-story main dining room. Even the Rhapsody's Card Room, Library and lounges are open to the views out to sea.

This openness makes a real difference in your shipboard experience - a difference you can see and feel immediately as you step onboard. Couple this with Royal Caribbean's emphasis on upscale, stylish décor - amid a casual and friendly shipboard character - you've got a winning combination that pleases almost everyone.

Here are some of the highlights of this beautiful ship:

  • An Observatory with endless views out to sea by day; endless views of the stars at night.
  • An all-weather Solarium and pool with retracting "Crystal Canopy" overhead.
  • An open, spacious atrium flooded with natural light.
  • A brighter, more open-feeling cruise environment - interior galleries and lounges are fed by natural light throughout the ship.
  • Two, scenic, glass-walled elevators with views not just of the atrium, but out to sea!
  • Private balcony staterooms - almost 30% of the Rhapsody's staterooms feature floor-to-ceiling glass doors leading onto spacious balconies.
  • The line's signature, glass-walled Viking Crown Lounge with unparallel views of the ship and the ocean.
  • Excellent conference facilities, expanded youth facilities and a two-level fitness centre.
