After a month-long $54 million drydock, Rhapsody of the Seas has emerged with an array of new amenities. The ship now features new concept restaurants, bars, jaw-dropping entertainment, a nursery and smart new technology throughout. She has received a bow-to-stern refresh of all furniture, carpet and upholstery, including renovated staterooms.

The Centrum, centrally located on Vision-class ships, has been transformed into a new chic and sophisticated venue featuring enriching daytime activities, dazzling nightly entertainment and jaw-dropping aerial spectacles. Bringing the Centrum's new entertainment offerings to life is the latest in sound and light technology. During the entertainment experiences, the soaring space comes alive with a series of aerial acrobatic vignettes blurring the lines between artful choreography and state-of-the-art technology.

Rhapsody of the Seas is now a hot new ship for a cool Alaska season!
