It’s such a shame that this ship is getting so many negative reviews, were we on the same ship!? IMO a lot of it is down to lack of research - this is not a big ship like oasis of the seas! We were on it last year and it was ... Read more

After a terrible experience at the port I could not wait to get on to Vision of the Seas. I should explain that at this point that Royal have no involvement with the port authorities. When Mangesh our Concierge and the Guest services ... Read more

We were looking for something not too expensive and an alternative to our usual winter week in the sun in the Canaries. This met the bill and the itinerary looked interesting as neither of us had been to that part of the world at all. ... Read more

This ship was a huge dissapointment after hearing that Royal Caribbean was a great line. To begin with, you have to ask for shampoo, conditioner and shower gel..they are not automatically put in your cabin. When they run out, you have to ... Read more

We chose this cruise prior to travelling to India. The ship is smaller than many in the fleet but this is not a problem and does mean that tenders are not required as , in the main, the ship can dock near the towns. Some painting is ... Read more

We took advantage of very low pricing (starting at £649pp including flights to Dubai) to fit in a short weeks cruise for some winter sun. We flew from LHR and upon arrival were transferred to Le Meridian hotel which is opposite the ... Read more

Exotic destination in the sun,a cruise combined with a 3 night stay in Dubai,was what I wanted to have. The embarkation at 11 am was quick and in no time was I inside the ship. The staterooms were available at 1pm,but the waiting in ... Read more

We chose this cruise to get some much needed rest, sleep and sunshine having done the same cruise on Splendour of the seas last year. We found Vision of the Seas a bit tired and not as nice as Splendour. Embarkation and ... Read more

We did this very same cruise last year when it was the Splendour of the Seas, and booked it again this year (early and paid much more than many guests we met) as we had loved it and rested and relaxed for a whole week in great weather. ... Read more

There were so many reasons - the overall experience was appalling. We are experienced cruisers and have never had such poor food in the dining room - poor quality meat and no taste, lack of choice and variety: one evening the head waiter ... Read more

To be quite honest, we choose this cruise on price, as we were actually in the travel agents paying the final payment for our imminent caribbean cruise with msc and it seemed too good to be real or true! Really, were it not for the msc ... Read more

There are a lot of negative comments about Vision so we were interested to experience it for ourselves. We have cruised with RC before on a similar sized vessel (Splendour) so we were familiar with the modus operandi. Last time we were a ... Read more

We had not taken a cruise with RCI in several years and although we were a bit disappointed in how everything seemed to have gone down a notch (except the service of many of the crew), we still did have a fun time on our Arabian Gulf ... Read more
