We completed a back to back cruise on Rhapsody in June. Sailing out of venice we visited ports in Croatia Montenegro and Greece. We had a wonderful time and met some lovely people. The back to back experience was easy, we were asked to go to the MDR on the swap over day and we were provided with our new sail passes. This took about half an hour and we kept the same rooms. We found the staff to be courteous and helpful.
The food was lovely with lots of choice. We have previously travelled with RC on Indepence and Adventure which were bigger ships with more ameneties, we didn’t miss that though as we found plenty to do for adults on this ship (can’t comment for children). We had an outside room on deck 4 which was great for the Centrum and no noise. Our friends were on Deck 3 which was noisier as they were underneath the galley or dining room and could hear movement from above in the early hours. We loved the itinerary and would do it over again. We stayed in the Olimpia hotel in Venice before and after the cruise, great hotel near the bus terminal. We used the nearby people carrier to get to the port 1.50 Euro per person- cheap as chips, quick and easy. I would totally recommend this cruise.
