Wonder of the Seas

REVIEW: Wonder of the Seas a dazzling, bonkers world of entertainment

Rhapsody of the Seas

Rhapsody of the Seas Review

When the ship is as important as the destination... I believe all cruise ships are beautiful; some more than others. It’s a matter of comparing many factors.

Our cruise was headed north and we were looking forward to 10 days of R&R.
