We chose this cruise to be with great friends and travel the Atlantic with so many sea days. We love being at sea and appreciate the activities and time to kick back and relax. We loved the evening Diamond/Diamond Plus events and spent ... 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

First, the dining experience did exceed my expectations - but this was the only area that did. Antonio was wonderful - friendly, hard-working, attentive to each of my family member's preferences - a wonderful server! Cyprian also was ... 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

My husband and I just returned from a Western Caribbean RC cruise on "Vision of the Seas," cruising out of Tampa. OF NOTE: A taxi from Tampa airport to the Port of Tampa is a flat fee of $25...regulated by the city, much cheaper ... 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

This was my second cruise. My first was on a Carnival ship and people told me that RC was 10x better. Well not by my scale. The boat was crowded there were only 2 pools and 6 small (7 people hot tubs on the ship) Our room was nice ... 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

While we have sailed on this class of vessel before, this was our first voyage on VISION and we had a wonderful time. Although she is an older ship, she went through rehab in 2013 and she looks great. The crew was among the best we have ... Read more

The title implies that I wasn't expecting it to be all that great - which I wasn't, after reading some of the reviews - but I'm so glad we picked this cruise. First, the Tampa port was easily the best and quickest service we've had. ... Read more
