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

Celebrating our 25th Anniversary aboard RCI's Vision of the Seas was every thing we had hoped for in a cruise and more. The ship, the service, the food and entertainment were first rate. This is our 13th cruise, our 9th with Royal ... Read more

We just completed another 7 day cruise on the Vision of the Seas and had as much fun as the cruise we did on the Vision Feb 20, just 2 weeks earlier. I'm writing 1 review for both cruises since they were so much alike. First I have ... 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

Cruised out of Tampa. We had stayed in a hotel that had free shuttle from airport. Prebooked a shuttle to cruise port with barracuda travel. They were prompt and called us when they were at the hotel. Vision is a smaller ship which is ... Read more

In the Fall of 2015 my wife and I did a back to back on the Vision in the Mediterranean and then a trans-Atlantic so I was very familiar with the Vision. I was disappointed at first that many crew I was familiar with on that cruise were no ... Read more

We just returned from a week aboard the Vision of the Seas. Having previously cruised on the Oasis of the Seas with RCC, I was not sure what to expect from an older, smaller ship. However, we had a great time and were pleased with the ... Read more

We sailed on the Vision of the Seas the week of Feb 27 and splurged for a Jr Suite for the first time. Check in was a breeze as we got the “easy pass” line because we had booked a suite. We brought our carry ons with us and ... Read more

We booked this cruise over 8 months ago. After having sailed aboard the Freedom class ship on our last cruise, we decided to scale back to a smaller, less 'busy' ship. Vision of the Seas fit the bill perfectly. The refurb it underwent in ... Read more

This was my 5th cruise, 3rd one with Royal Caribbean. We chose this ship based on the dates and ports that would be visited. This ship lacked many of the amenities of the other ships I was on. Something as simple as shampoo was not ... Read more

We arrived at the terminal about 11:30. We waited in the holding room for 15-20 minutes waiting for our group number to be called. Once called, we were on the ship in 5 minutes. The ship itself was smaller than any other RCCL ship ... Read more

Left PHL at about 9:50 AM on Feb. 5 after a very wet 1” snowfall. I was so afraid the flight would be delayed or canceled, but the airport was functioning normally. We had a very smooth flight to Tampa and was greeted by a bright, ... Read more

We went to Royal Caribbean and were very excited to go for a cruise. But the ship was old with some renovations but you can feel its old when in your stateroom it feels noisy of whole ship falling apart. Also the food was very tasteless ... Read more
