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

I was told that Royal Caribbean was rated highest among the cruise lines. They certainly did not disappoint. We sailed on the Vision of the Seas for 7 nights to the Western Caribbean and had an excellent time. This was our first cruise and ... 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 just got back from our Vision of the Seas cruise to the Western Caribbean. This was our 35th cruise on at least 6 different lines. Last year I went on a back to back on the Vision. I was so disappointed with the cutbacks in the ... Read more

This ship will be leaving US service in April to go to Italy and then be transferred to a subsidiary in China. The facilities are old and tired but kept clean. The operations seem to be running to minimize expenses. The food in the main ... 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

We have sailed on 5 cruise lines and once before on Royal. We chose this cruise specifically for the itinerary. We flew in the day of the cruise and embarked right on the ship with no wait. It was nice to see Royal hires so many senior ... Read more

Long time cruisers - Platinum status on Carnival and Diamond on RCCL. A few additional with Princess and Disney. In some forty cruises this was by far the smallest cabin we have ever experienced. You can't sit squarely on the toilet ... Read more

THE CONS 1) the itinerary was changed after we made our final payment, 2) there was some kind of computer problem at the Tampa port and it took 1 1/2 hours to get checked in, 3) we had to leave Key West early because weather ... Read more

This was our 8th RCCL cruise but this one was our 25th. The one plus was the great music. How can a ship run out of bagels, muffins, Sam Adams within 5 days????? The ship was always clean but seemed to lack personnel. Cabin Steward had ... Read more

Getting on board took a long time after a chaotic line. At first view the ship looked dated, but the two ocean view cabins where acceptable. The window had some permanent stains and was not clear and there was also a stain on the sofa. ... Read more

I will start with the positives: Boarding and getting off the ship was a piece of cake, easy, easy, easy. The balcony room was well worth the money. The room was perfectly fine, room 7640 was quite, no noise. Easy to find your way ... Read more
