Njut av utsikten från toppen av klätterväggen. Lär dig knep från en erfaren kock under en matlagningslektion. Eller upptäck ett nytt favoritvin, rött eller vitt, på Vintages. Allt detta under det mest spännande äventyret någonsin.

SÄG JA TILL ÄVENTYR

Kasta dig ut i äventyret på klätterväggen. Titta på film under stjärnorna. Visa upp dina färdigheter i köket under en kulinarisk kurs eller svettas på Vitality℠ at Sea Spa och fitnesscenter. Allt finns här på Rhapsody of the Seas®.

HÖGTFLYGANDE PROVSMAKNING

Från exotiska smaker från Asien på Izumi och nytolkningar av steakhouse-klassiker på Chops Grille℠ till traditionella toskanska rätter på Giovanni's Table – detta är en smakfest du definitivt måste uppleva.

SENSATIONELLA SHOWER

Redo att bli bländad? Piano Man tar dig med på en nostalgitripp med klassiska låtar. Och du hittar uppträdanden med gästunderhållare på hela fartyget, som allsång med piano på Schooner Bar.

Att göra i
Tampa
Avgår vid 4:00 PM
En gång plundrade pirater stränderna i Tampa Bay, men idag lockar den här skvalpande staden både strandälskare, friluftsentusiaster och museumfantaster. Dess lågmälda strandatmosfär smälter in med atmosfären i den blänkande stadskärnan — och det finns ingen brist på spänning för alla åldrar. Utforska Ybor Citys historia av cigarr-rullning eller våga dig på bergochdalbanorna på Busch Gardens. Paddla kajak längs Hillsborough River förbi solande alligatorer, och se den skygga Florida pantern på Lowry Park Zoo. Nörda ner dig på Museum of Science och den kupolformade IMAX Theater på Industry — eller kolla in Florida Crackers utställningar på Tampa Bay History Center. På Tampa kryssningar kan du upptäcka en skattkista av äventyr, från stranden till viken.

KULTUR FIX

Promenera längs Tampa Riverwalk och se var den leder dig. Du kan utforska interaktiva utställningar på Tampa Bay History Center, eller göra stående paddleboarding från Sail Pavilion. Tampa Museum of Arts samlingar sträcker sig från forntid till modern tid — och på Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park finns plaskfontäner, en lekplats och utsikt över stadssiluetten.
Insider tip
Den klassiska, luftkonditionerade TAVS Line Streetcar kan transportera dig mellan centrala Tampa, Channelside och Ybor City, med 11 stationer utmed en 4,3 km lång sträcka. Biljetter kan köpas på stationerna.

KOM TILL SANDEN

En kort 30 minuters bilfärd västerut från staden tar dig längs kusten av Mexikanska golfen, som är kantad av stränder med sockersand. Clearwater Beach och St. Pete Beach erbjuder oslagbar havsluft, medan Caladesi Island State Park och Fort DeSoto Park erbjuder lugna stränder.

SE HAVET

Kom in i Florida Aquarium och möt över 20 000 arter av vattenlevande växter och djur. Kryssa till Tampa och se floduttrar på Florida Wetlands Trail och ringsvansade lemurer på resa till Madagaskar. Säg sedan hej till goliath-havsaborrar, stingrockor, revfiskar, havssköldpaddor och hajar i viken och längs stränder.

DET LOKALA KÖKET

Tampas matscen kommer från en fusion av kubanska, spanska, italienska och Floribbeanska influenser. Lokala barer serverar färska räkor, ostron, pilgrimsmusslor och havsaborre från Mexikanska golfen. Den kubanska sandwichen — toppad med Genua salami — är en signaturrätt. För en smak av äkta Florida Cracker-mat, prova sofkee-gröt, pilau (riskakor) eller stekt alligatorsvans under din nästa Tampa-kryssning.

SHOPPING

Hämta upp tropiska kläder och Florida-inspirerade souvenirer i Channelside Bay Plaza, som ligger utomhus precis vid hamnen. Gå till Hyde Park Village för exklusiva butiker, och stanna på shopen för lokala sportkläder hos ekiperare Salt Pines. Inget slår Ybor City när det gäller udda vintage butiker och handrullade cigarrer.

Roatán’s diverse blend of cultures and traditions is enough to charm anyone. But its mangrove forests, dense jungles, and swaths of white-sand beach will make you want to stay forever. Divers and snorkelers from all over the globe flock to the largest of Honduras’ Bay Islands every year see to the world’s second largest barrier reef firsthand. Roatán cruises provide access to laid-back beach towns and secluded shores. On the Big Island, you can mingle with monkeys and “Jesus” lizards, snorkel with stingrays, and zipline through rainforest canopies. If it’s culture you crave, the island’s unique and vibrant blend is more than satisfying— made up of ex-pat sun seekers, Hondurans from the mainland, descendants of European settlers, and Garífuna, whose Afro-Carib-Arawak heritage still flavors centuries-old communities like Punta Gorda.
