Rhapsody of the Seas is kicking off a summer season in the Mediterranean sailing from Civitavecchia/Rome to Piraeus/Athens (Greece). The seven-night voyage includes calls in Catania, Salerno, Santorini, Mykonos and Kusadasi. In the coming months the ship will sail additional four- to seven-night itineraries in the Mediterranean departing from various homeports in the region, such as Barcelona (Spain) and Ravenna (Italy).

According to Royal Caribbean, the full deployment includes visits to 25 destinations in the Greek Isles, southern France, Italy, Turkey, Croatia and more.

Rhapsody of the Seas, who originally entered service in 1997, will also offer a series of cruises from Israel. From August through October 31, the ship will be based in Haifa, offering three- to eight-night voyages to Greece and Cyprus.

With Rhapsody of the Seas now in service, 26 cruise ships have resumed service for Royal Caribbean International. Quantum of the Seas was the first ship to resume operations in December 2020.
