Default Rhapsody of the Seas ordinary review on Australian Cruise

I have just returned from an 11 day cruise on Rhapsody of the Seas in Australia. I would have to say that it was a mixed experience. The food was great and the service in the cabins and restaurants was good, but the price gouging on onshore tours and drinks onboard was unconscionable- the prices for drinks were 5 times what they are onshore in Australia and any alcohol you bring onboard is confiscated with a reason that it is against Australian regulations- I have checked since returning and this is a blatant fabrication unfortunately. On the positive side we were in a suite and it was serviced well and was a good size- but all in all would not recommend RCI until they decide to review their very high prices on excursions and drinks.

Thanks for the heads up - we are leaving on Sunday 11/30 for the 11 day OZ cruise along the Great Barrier Reef. I agree with you on the price gouging on the excursions, from my research the same excursions onshore were much cheaper, but because of the short amount of time onshore I was reluctant to venture off on my own.

Thanks for letting us know about RCCL's policy of taking liquor, I had been planning on buying Australian Wine to bring home for Christmas gifts. nix that.
