This is our third cruise, second on Royal Caribbean. I doubt we will sail with Royal again. We were with our two teenage daughters celebrating Christmas as a family. I will start by saying, that we were NOT miserable. We enjoyed being ... Read more

My wife and I previously cruised on Vision of the Seas to Alaska in 2006. It was the best cruise we ever took. We were looking forward to sailing on her again but were disappointed. We are emerald members of the Crown & Anchor ... Read more

Writing this on the last day of our Christmas cruise. Good time to remember everything while it is fresh. To set it up front we have not been on a "big boat" cruise for nearly 10 years having switched to Windstar and river ... Read more

This cruise was OK but not great. The positives: ** Most all the bartenders were excellent (with the exception of one) ** Overall, entertainment was very good ** Cabin Steward (Raz) was excellent ** Specialty dining was ... Read more

The cruise started with a computer shut down on embarkation which caused many passengers to wait in the terminal 2-3 hours; there was no backup system to recover from this problem. Many passengers were put in group #'s but this did not ... Read more

This was my 62nd cruise. I have been on almost every cruise line and had fun on just about all of them. The pro's for this cruise include: Captain Marek Slaby - he was more visible than ANY captain of any ship I have sailed. He ... Read more

We love cruising and enjoyed this one on the Vision, a mid-size ship with nice venues that is easy to navigate. The cruise director staff were excellent -- high energy and lots of fun. A big surprise came when ship's captain Marek Slaby ... Read more

Poorly prepared, presented and generally unappetizing food. "Grab and Go" bar featured precooked, grey hamburger patties, shriveled hot dogs. The boiled eggs in the morning were in a hot skillet with no water, so were getting ... Read more

If you like small ships and lots of fun then the Vision is the ship for you. Lots of good music and dancing. We had an inside cabin, a little small but clean and comfortable, also had a great cabin attendant. The captain and his staff was ... Read more

First time on RCL, Vision of the Seas to Key West, ABC islands and Grand Cayman. Compared to NCL or Princess, I feel this cruise was my least favorite. It was a great vacation, but little things will keep us from booking another RCL ... Read more

We are RCCL loyalists who have taken several cruises with RCCL and a few with other cruise lines. We were disappointed with several things on this cruise. 1. The size of the staterooms. We booked a Junior Suite and it was about the ... Read more

This was my boyfriend's and my 5th cruise together, first time taking Royal Caribbean. We've sailed on Norwegian once, and Carnival three times, and our first time taking a cruise that was more than 7 or 8 nights. I suspect that ... Read more

This was nothing more than a shopping cruise. The only way to get to the beaches was to book a tour. Every stop was in a shopping area. I could have stayed home and went to the mall. The food was not as good as food I have had on other ... Read more

Cruising is our most cherished way of vacationing. Over the years we have given taken a dozen cruises. For the most part, I have to say our cruise was fraught with what I will call Royal Caribbean's attempt at cost cutting which is ... Read more

We chose Royal Caribbean's Southern Caribbean itinerary since it included several places we had never been to (Aruba, Curacao and Grand Cayman). I have to say that what I want to talk about most is our concierge Mangesh (MJ). If we ... Read more

The Vision of the Seas had been to Europe and this was the second cruise departing the US since her return. We were traveling as Diamond Members, so this was not our first trip to the rodeo with RCI and we have a number of cruises with ... Read more

I actually had a wonderful cruise experience -so please don't take the title of the review in a derogatory manner. This was my seventh Royal Caribbean cruise, but the first without a healthy diverse age range for travelers. The mean age on ... Read more

We are experienced cruisers (Diamond) and this was our first cruise out of Tampa. This particular itinerary was unusual in that it went from Tampa all the way to Aruba/Curacao, a 9-Night Southern Caribbean cruise. The off-port parking ... Read more

We booked this cruise to coincide with a previous week at a time share in Orlando. We arrived at the ship about noon on the Saturday and were promptly processed and on board by 12:30. Staterooms aren't ready until one so we did an ... Read more

This was our 8th TA with RCL/Celebrity and with the exception of what can only be described as the most diabolical Wi Wi system and very poor immigration arrangements in Tampa, my wife and I had a great cruise, if not quite, an exceptional ... Read more

Like others, we were also NOT "WOWed" by this cruise.Embarkation was the high point of the trip! Once on-board, the front-line service personnel (from waiters to bar tenders to cabin stewards) were very nice & seemed quite ... Read more

I live by the adage any cruise is better than none and nothing beats a transatlantic. I cruise with my best friend on a 15 night transatlantic on Vision. Vision is an older ship and small. Our flight booked through ChoiceAir was great ... Read more

Perfect cruise on Vision of the Seas This is our 2nd cruise with RC and this one exceeded our expectations. Embarkation and registration took all of 20 minutes. We arrived at Port/Barcelona at 10h30 and by 10h50, we were having lunch in ... Read more

We were one of many who took the back to back on the Vision. This was not our first back to back so we have other cruises to compare our experience with Vision. We had to transfer cabins as they claim that the ship was fully booked and ... Read more
