Royal Caribbean’s Rhapsody of the Seas will sail from Barcelona, Spain to Bridgetown, Barbados after its Mediterranean mission in the summer. And you can get onboard for only €490 in an inside room and €559 in a room with a window to the Ocean. The ship will make stops in Cannes, France, Malaga, Spain and Funchal, Madeira.
The fares include taxes and fees, but do not include the de facto compulsory gratuities. These add additional US$14 (~€14) a night (US$174 (~€165) total) per person. Our fares are according to two persons sharing a room. You can set the persons on the booking site.
Royal Caribbean currently requires all guests to be vaccinated (up to 270 days before the cruise) and tested (two days before departure). Although, the cruise is in November and things may change until then.
Onboard, you will get full-board catering which includes a traditional a-la-carte dinner and a buffet restaurant. The latter stays open almost all day. This is where you can get drinks during your meals. Drink packages start at USD 12,99. If you want to browse the web, you can do it for an additional USD 128,8.
The cruise starts in Barcelona and stops three times before reaching Bridgetown, which includes eight days at sea.
