Ports of Call

At Sea: We start our adventure with a day at sea. This will give us the opportunity to get in our "island state of mind", leave your worries and troubles behind, relax and unwind - get on island time.

Oranjestad, Aruba:  Explore the wonders of this colorful Dutch Colonial island.  The activities in Aruba are sure to keep you happy and smiling all day.  You can enjoy the wonders of the brilliant coarl and exotic fish that call the warm, azure waters of Aruba home.  There are many popular dive sights to explore or you can play golf at the Robert Trent Jones course, Tierra Del Sol.

Willemstad, Curacao:  Visit the Chobolobo, the colonial mansion where the original Curacao liqueur is still distilled.  A day of shopping and relaxing on the beach is another terrific way to spend the day.

Bridgetown, Barbados: The British influence on this island can still be seen. Afternoon tea is a tradition here and a square in the main city of Bridgetown is named Trafalgar, like its London counterpart.

Philipsburg, St. Maarten: Adventure through this bustling picturesque Dutch capital, the streets are lined with pastel hued houses and shops. The beaches of St. Maarten are renowned for their beauty and variety - from long stretches of shimmering sand to tiny romantic coves.

St. Thomas, US Virgin Island: Everything a vacationer desires can be found here. The busy main town, Charlotte Amalie is alive with some of the greatest duty-free shopping in the Caribbean. Enjoy swimming and other water sports in the clear aquamarine waters of Magens Bay.

While cruising the Deep Southern Caribbean on the Rhapsody of the Seas, you will have the chance to savor a melting pot of European flavors, spiced with West Indian zest and warmed to perfection by the warm Caribbean sun.

Imagine... you're stretched out in a deck chair soaking up the warm sun. You lift your hand and an attentive waiter is at your side with a cool drink to quench your thirst.

Your taste buds are on a culinary adventure around the world, you don't have to be in Madrid to enjoy spicy tapas, and you don't need to learn French to order Escargots. Other specialty dishes give you a taste of the Caribbean right on board, using the freshest ingredients in the tropics. The dining experience on Royal Caribbean Cruise Line is an event in itself. They have a wide selection of delicious foods that will satisfy everyones taste. You will find your favorite dishes, and discover some new favorites too. Low fat, low cholesterol and vegetarian dishes are available also. No matter when you have the urge to eat, there will always be something available. Earlybird Coffee is ready for the early risers and the Midnight buffet is waiting for the night owls. Whether you feel like feasting or just grabbing a snack, the choice is yours.

While aboard the Rhapsody of the Seas the entertainment is nonstop. In the casino, you can gather around the blackjack or craps tables, spin the roulette wheel, play Stud poker or just have a seat and enjoy a game of video poker.

Move to a rhythm of your own in one of the many lounges aboard the ship. Big band tunes, golden oldies or the top 40 hits are guaranteed to put you in the mood to dance. If you prefer a quieter evening, head for the Viking Crown Lounge and watch the world go by from the best seat in the house. Whether you choose to kick up your heels or kick back and relax, you can be sure you'll find all the options you need to make this the perfect vacation.

All of us at WICS-TV hope to see you in January for this wonderful luxury cruise. For additional information on how you can participate in this luxury incentive program, contact your WICS-TV representative at 217-753-5620.
