We had to come back to our "real" lives after a 7 day cruise on Rhapsody of the Seas. This was my husband and my first cruise, and cannot say enough good things about it. We love the scenery, which is indescribable, the food, our waitstaff, tablemates, activities, etc. I unfortunately got motion sickness the second day because of the 10 foot swells, but even that was not so bad. Being ex-navy, my husband loved the swells. We are immediately going to start saving for the next cruise... I don't know how I will be able to wait.
Weather was not too bad, it rained a little, so we noticed the children on board were in the adult pool alot, but since we did not use the pool we didn't mind. We packed ready for all the dress codes, but it was more layed back than I thought is was going to be.
The entertainment was excellent. I still cannot believe the quality of the shows on such a little ship. On some of the at-sea days we did have to pick and choose because we wanted to do everything. The digital camera class was a little bit of a disappointment. The lectures on Victoria and the question and answer session with the captian was interesting. They did seem to push shopping at jewelry shops alot, too, but the coupons they handed out were really worth it.
Juneau was BEAUTIFUL- I wish we could have spent more time there. We did not go to the glacier there (Mendenhall?), but I heard from others we definitely missed a great trip. Especially because the Dawson's Glacier we did see did not compare. And the excuresion was less expensive at the pier. Oh well- maybe next time!
