Rhapsody of the Seas - Ship Description
Filled with creative and innovative touches, Rhapsody of the Seas offers its passengers panoramic views, themed dining areas, and Royal Caribbean's signature rock-climbing wall. As a member of the Vision Family of ships, it weighs in at 78,491 tons, features eight bars and lounges, and provides fun and relaxation for all 2,435 passengers onboard.
A whole host of facilities and activities await passengers each day, including two swimming pools, six whirlpools, and an outdoor jogging track. Fitness classes and machines are available in the work-out area, and soul-soothing treatments take place in the spa. The ship's state-of-the-art, Egyptian-themed solarium showcases a retractable glass canopy to shield guests when less desirable weather strikes. In the Boutiques of Centrum, guests will find a gift shop, jewelry shop, perfumery, clothing boutique, liquor store, and souvenir shop. Trained staff organize and supervise arts-and-crafts sessions, scavenger hunts, and science demonstrations for children.
Step into the two-story Edelweiss Dining Room and feast your eyes on its panoramic windows and sweeping staircase. Though it may be tempting to dine on sirloin steaks and decadent desserts every night, many guests prefer the guilt-free choices that the ShipShape menu has to offer--including low-fat dishes, vegetarian entrees, fresh fruits, and an assortment of natural snacks. For a more casual alternative, there's always the Windjammer Cafe. In the evenings, guests can place their bets in the Casino Royale, mingle in one of several bars and lounges, take in live entertainment, or steal away to a quiet area of the ship to watch the stars.
