MS Rhapsody of the Seas is a Vision-class cruise ship operated by Royal Caribbean International. Onboard amenities include a full-service spa, two swimming pools, six bars, a rock-climbing wall, and several dining options.

After six years of sailing from Galveston, Texas, Rhapsody of the Seas repositioned on a world trip in the fall of 2007, traveling through the South Pacific to Australia where she remained for two months, before moving to Asia, operating cruises from Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Busan in South Korea. For the summer of 2008, Rhapsody of the Seas operated out of Seattle, Washington, sailing to Alaska before repositioning back to Sydney, Australia for the winter of 2008/2009. After returning to Seattle in the spring of 2009, Royal Caribbean has announced that Rhapsody of the Seas is to repeat her Australia/Alaska seasons at least through April 2012.

Rhapsody of the Seas sailed her final season in Australia during the winter 2014/2015 season, repositioning to Europe sailing from Rome in April 2015. During the 2015/2016 winter she will sail to São Paulo in Brazil. For the 2016 summer season she will be based out of Venice, Italy sailing to the Eastern Mediterranean.

Future Cruises

After her 2016 summer season, Rhapsody of the Seas will sail to Tampa, Florida conducting 7 Day cruises to the Western Caribbean. After she will reposition for the first time to Cape Liberty, New Jersey for the 2017 summer season, sailing 7 Day cruises to the Bahamas and Canada/New England, alongside the Anthem of the Seas, before repositioning back to Tampa.

In April 2012, the ship received a US$54 million dry dock refit which added addition staterooms, an outdoor movie screen near the pool, new dining venues, digital signage, Wi-Fi internet access, concierge and diamond lounges, and a nursery.
