I chose this cruise because I am a regular customer of Royal Caribbean (this was my 7th RC cruise in 15 months) and I took my sister for the first time and she chose the itinerary. Vision was different in some ways to previous cruises. ... Read more

The people that we meet and eat with in the main dining room were the highlight of our cruise. They were hilariously fun and a pleasure to meet every night for dinner and also enjoyed some karaoke and entertainment with them. The ... Read more

Price, timings and ports of call were the reason we picked this cruise. We flew from Atlanta to Milan on Turkish Airlines via Istanbul. Great airline. We spent 2 days in Milan and took morning train to Venice. Venice train terminal was ... Read more

Never again! But thats just me. To pay top dollar to spend 7 nights in a shoebox with no windows is not my idea of fun. It seemed to me it was a feeding frenzy for overweight people and pensioners. Too little time at the stops and a ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the itinerary - Greek Isles - and also a special offer of free flights & transfers. We didn't think to research the ship prior to booking as we have thoroughly enjoyed both Navigator of the Seas (2013) and ... Read more

We chose this trip for the ports of call we have enjoyed before (Venice and Mykonos), and to see some new ones: Kotor, Corfu and Argostoli. The 3 aforementioned were OK, but seemed a bit touristy, but I guess that's what happens when huge ... Read more

We arrived in Venice Friday morning and took a water taxi to San Marco Square. The taxi ride was great and the driver took on a scenic tour thru several canals, so we could see the real Venice. We spent the night at the Royal San Marco ... Read more

We have sailed out of Venice a few times before but we still spent time looking at sights along the grand canal. Embarkation was fast and very smooth,especially since the last one out of Bayonne was the worst we have ever experienced. It ... Read more

We sailed on Vision of the Seas on 7th to 14th May and had the most wonderful holiday. Having sailed on RCS larger ships previously, the size of the Vision took some getting used to and the choice of food and entertainment was somewhat ... Read more

We have just come back from the week long Mediterranean cruise on the RC Vision. I was a little hesitant with the trip as I had read so many bad reviews for this particular ship. We went with another couple and I can honestly say apart ... Read more

I spent 21 nights on The Vision of the Seas starting with the transtlantic cruise to Barcelona and then the cruise from Barcelona to Venice. Captain Merek is amazing! He was the most visible and interactive captain I have ever sailed with. ... Read more

Our 2nd transatlantic cruise with RC. Will always try to travel to Europe this way instead of flying, which we find torture. We don't drink or take excursions as we find these very overpriced, but always enjoy our cruises. My wife ... Read more

We chose this cruise as an inexpensive and fun way to get to Europe. The ship was older than previous TA cruises we've taken. We liked the smaller size of the ship because it was easier to learn our way around, and meant we bumped into ... Read more

Our transatlantic voyage on the Vision of the Seas was a lovely experience. There were some minor issues, but our goal was to get to Europe in the most pleasant and economical way possible. The weather was generally very good with just a ... Read more

General: My wife and I chose this cruise because of some friends on the cruise, the ports visited, and our ability to get a Grand Suite at a really good deal. After a nice flight on SouthWest from Sacramento to Tampa, we were pleasantly ... Read more

Fantastic cruise, As a solo cruiser it was the best ever, I met lots of solo women my age group, someone to dine with every night. There was more than enough activities to keep me occupied even the eight days at sea there was plenty ... Read more

We had a great time. Cruise ship was clean, service was exceptional, food was very good. Somehow I wish a cruiseline would ban smoking in the casino. I lost $20 in the slot machines and I had to get out of there..the smoke was so thick. ... Read more

This is a smaller, older but well maintained ship and by far, my favorite. The smaller ship eliminated most of the things I don't use on a larger ship and allowed guests who participated in the same type of activities to get to know one ... Read more

My Wife and I booked this cruise during one of RCI's BOGO 50% off sales, and it was only about $1400 for both of us. This was our 2nd cruise, with our first being on Allure of the Seas, and we knew going in that this ship was going to be a ... Read more

I spend several months each year at sea - frequently on RCI taking advantage of their "perks" for high cruisers, as well as their single friendly cruise fares. I must admit that lately, with all the cutbacks, constant appeals to ... Read more
