We booked this cruise somewhat last minute(for us anyway). Loved that it sailed out of Venice where we hadn't been before and had a good itinerary. We stayed at the Best Western Titian Inn near the airport for two days before and ... Read more

I have just returned from a weeks cruise on Vision of the Seas and before I leave my review I want to mention Captain Merak. I have never seen a Captain on a ship quite like him. Not only did he pose for the normal formal photos, he sang ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the dates (our 30th anniversary) and the itinerary. We arrived in a very rainy and wet Venice the day before the cruise and stayed near the people mover at the Hotel Olimpia, which we can thoroughly recommend. On ... Read more

We did back to back cruises on Royal Caribbean’s Vision of the Seas out of Venice Oct 2016. We’ve experienced several other cruise lines (Carnival, DCL, NCL) as well as RCL in the past. We had both done Venice before so ... Read more

We enjoyed our RCCL Vision of the Seas cruise. Unfortunately, we were served the worst hamburgers we've ever seen on a cruise line. A fair characterization of them would be hockey pucks, burnt ones. We were surprised the Spa Café, ... Read more

We did this two week back to back cruise from Venice, departing on the day our flight from the US arrived in Venice. Our flight was delayed in landing by 45 minutes due to fog. We later learned that we were lucky-some flights were ... Read more

Just back from a good sailing on the Vision of the Seas. We left from Venice, Italy and unfortunately did not have any time to explore Venice prior to our cruise due to a very bad experience with Transat Air's cruise ship transfers. (long ... Read more

This cruise was recommended by friends and was offering a very good deal at the time of our travels. It was my first time cruising so I had different levels of expectations and anticipations. I would certainly take another cruise and ... Read more

We chose this cruise mostly because it went to Santorini, Greece, and honestly, it exceeded our expectations. We traveled together as a group of three sisters and shared an inside cabin. A part of me wishes that we just spent a little ... Read more

This ship, while older, is in great shape, and is the perfect size for a fun vacation. More importantly, the staff is amazing. There were SO many individuals that went above and beyond the call of duty, to ensure we had a great time. I ... Read more

Just returned from a week aboard. The ship sailed full yet the staff still managed to be amazing and pampered to your every needs. Ship was spotlessly clean and the food was great. The stateroom 7017 inside cabin was the largest of ... Read more

We choose this trip as we wanted a different trip than that of the itineraries from Southampton. We wanted some September Sunshine. We are fans of Royal Caribbean and so we choose this ship and itinerary. I would suggest if you are ... Read more

We chose it for a group trip as it had an interesting itinerary and a good price. The only port-stop we had been to before was Piraeus last year so went to Cape Sounion this time as we had seen Athens that time. Overall a great ship with ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the itinerary- Greek Isles. The ports were all fine with the exception of Argostoli- otherwise known as Kefalonia. Town is a short walk from docks. This is where Captain Corelli's Mandolin was filmed. Beach is ... Read more

In general, the cruise was very good. But it seems Royal Caribbean is trying to save every penny and trying to make you buy everything they offer. It got to the level of disturbance the frequence with which we were approached by the staff ... Read more

We chose this cruise by destinations, which were Venice, Dubrovnik, Ephesus (Kusadasi), Santorini and Olympia (Kathakolon). All those 5 were on our "bucket list" of must visit places, so this schedule fitted perfectly. The time ... Read more

I must state at the out start, that although I say we cruised for 14 nights, we did a back to back cruise of 7 nights each. We are fairly experienced cruisers, being Diamond Plus members, so have some insight as to the cruising life. Not ... Read more

We chose this cruise for its destinations and Venice being the start and finish points, all of which were brilliant. We made our own way to the ship from the airport by local bus, 8 euros each, and used the people mover to get to the dock ... Read more
