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

Before the cruise we spent 4 days in beautiful FUN St. Petersburg, loved the city so much. We chose this cruise to get us to Europe and because we did the same cruise last year and had an amazing trip. Deck 10 was very dirty the ... Read more

This was our first cruise, now we know why people who have taken cruises continue to cruise. The Vision of the Seas is a well maintained beautiful ship. The crew is dedicated to meeting your every need, so much so, that we did not ... 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

For our first time cruise, my adult children and I were impressed by everything, lol! I know the ship is considered small, but for the first time, it was perfect! The cabins were great...I had an oceanview while my kids shared an inside ... 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

I booked five cabins for a family reunion cruise - three small suites and two oceanview. I've cruised several times on other Royal Caribbean ships and on other cruise lines - Vision was limited in types of entertainment and onboard ... Read more

This was my 16th overall cruise and 3rd cruise on RCCL. I will openly admit that I prefer Carnival over Royal. We flew into Tampa a day prior, glad we did as storms on Saturday caused a few to miss the ship and catch up later in ... Read more

This was my fourth sailing on Vision of the Seas, and it was awesome. Tampa is an excellent Port - just 15 - 20 minutes from curbside to on board. Porters are outside to take the suitcases, making it even easier. Vision is a smaller ... Read more

This was my third cruise with RCL, but the first one out of the Port of Tampa. It seemed like the lines weren't as long and flowed faster in Tampa than my previous experiences out of Port Canaveral. I was a little apprehensive because ... Read more

We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise on Vision of the Seas....Tampa was by far the easiest port we have ever used for embarkation. There was someone right there to help us unload luggage from our taxi and we were inside and onboard in, ... Read more

We have cruised a number of times on RCI and chose this one based on wanting a different itinerary. The Vision is perhaps the oldest and smallest ship we've been on, and some of the experiences were because of those differences and should ... Read more
