After boarding at Durban Harbour, Svalka showed us to our cabin on the Rhapsody. This was by far the best cabin we have stayed in in the limited number of times we have cruised (once on the RMS St Helena and we've also stayed overnight on a ferry between Naples & Palermo, Italy). We've never before enjoyed the luxury of a double-bed, TV or even portholes in our cabin.

Television

The TV in the cabin was relatively small and had hardly any channels, but hey, it felt luxurious to have a TV at all in one's cabin on board a ship. The TV had 4 channels - Supersport, Movie Magic, an Italian channel (probably for the staff - many of them were Italian) & a movie channel (from the second day the Rhapsody used it to show its series of movies). We watched South Africa's Proteas take on the Australians at the WACA in Perth.

Toilet and shower area

If you've been to the Formula One hotel - the toilet and shower area is a similar size (little bit bigger). The toilet has an odd flusher - you've got to push the button in, and then hold it in until it's flushed away what needs to be flushed away.

Mirrors

Mirrors create the feeling of space, so it's no surprise that two mirrors have been placed into the cabin.

Beds

Two single beds have been pushed very closely together to create a double bed; in which baby, mommy & daddy slept.

Lifejackets

Lifejackets are stowed away above the hangars in the cupboard (next to the door).

Escape route

On the door of your cabin is a sign showing your primary escape route in the event of on emergency. If you are not in your cabin at the time of the emergency, you need to go directly to your muster station (not via your cabin to collect your life jacket). Smoking in cabins is strongly discouraged (but not prohibited!).
