Royal Caribbean’s Rhapsody of the Seas just emerged from a month long drydock at Singapore’s Sembawang Shipyard. The new Rhapsody of the Seas features new dining options, revamped entertainment and unique amenities. She will sail Alaska in the summer and Asia/Pacific in the fall.
The all-encompassing renovations Range from the Royal Babies and Tots Nursery to a Diamond Lounge for Crown & Anchor Society loyalty members, a Concierge Lounge for suite guests and top-tier loyalty guests. RCI is really emphasizing their repeat guest services.
Cabins have also received upgrades including modern technology.
The real highlights, in my opinion, are their revamped dinning options:
· Giovanni’s Table: An Italian trattoria featuring Italian classics served family-style (open for lunch, $15, and dinner, $20)
· Izumi Asian Cuisine: Featuring mouthwatering flavors and a sushi bar with hot-rock cooking, the pan Asian cuisine restaurant is a no-hassle, authentic dining experience (open for lunch and dinner, $3.00 cover charge for lunch and $5.00 for dinner plus a la carte menu pricing)
· Park Café: An indoor/outdoor gourmet market featuring salads, sandwiches, soups and pastries (open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, complimentary)
· Chops Grille: Royal Caribbean’s signature steakhouse offering premium cuts and quality meats (open for dinner, $30 per person)
· Chef’s Table: An exclusive and private experience co-hosted by the executive Chef and Sommelier for a wine pairing dinner of five courses (open for dinner, $95 per person).
Entertainment-wise, the Centrum has been “re-invented,” and features daytime and nighttime entertainment with acrobatics.
