Rhapsody of the Seas
Royal Caribbean International

Built in 1997 -- 78,491 tons -- 2000 passengers (double capacity)


Eleven decks above the ocean, Rhapsody of the Seas’ Viking Crown Lounge offers panoramic sea vistas. 

Royal Caribbean’s melodic décor theme sounds a chord on Rhapsody of the Seas with the Shall We Dance Lounge, Edelweiss Dining Room, and Broadway Melodies Theater. 

Stay fit at sea running or walking on the wrap-around jogging track or in Rhapsody of the Seas’ Ship Shape Fitness Center with its full range of exercise equipment and a sauna to relax after your workout.

The Crystal Canopy covers one of Rhapsody of the Seas’ swimming pools, creating a solarium with adjacent whirlpool tubs.

Teenage passengers on Rhapsody of the Seas have their own FantaSeas Teen Center with a lounge area and video arcade.

The Observatory on Rhapsody of the Seas is designed for stargazing—from two decks above the bridge, its starwheels rotate to display the location of the constellations.

Rhapsody of the Seas’ Schooner Bar features a nautically inspired décor, right down to the unique scent.

From a seat in Rhapsody of the Seas’ Viking Crown Lounge, you could look the Statue of Liberty in the eye.

Two Eiffel Towers could be built using the steel in the Rhapsody of the Seas.

The Rhapsody of the Seas is twice as wide as Beverly Hills’ Rodeo Drive and three times as long and twice as high as the “Hollywood” sign.

Two acres of glass canopies, windows, and walls afford panoramic views of the sea from nearly every deck on Rhapsody of the Seas.
