Normally I don't cruise around Christmas time. The prices are too high. But this offer was unbelievable. The prices startet at 299 € per person. We had a nice veranda cabin midships. Big enough for one week. I had no great dining ... Read more

We decided to try Royal Caribbean Arabian Gulf cruise because the weather in the area would be warm but not to hot at this time of year. The embarkation was not too bad, we arrived in Dubai about 7.30 after an overnight flight from ... Read more

I have just returned from a 7 day cruise out of Dubai on RCCL's Vision of the Seas. She is an older ship that carries 2,500 people. A size and age that I usually love. Sadly, Vision was rather tired. Despite the best attempts of the ... Read more

Following a three night stay in Venice we joined the Vision of the Seas using the transfer provided from the Hotel Anthony. Getting on the ship was very easy as we had previously travelled with Royal Caribbean and as we had already pre ... Read more

The ship does show its age a bit but it was the perfect size for us. Not a mega ship by all means. There were no crowds in key areas of the ship and the staff was very attentive. The waiters who took care of my husband and I were super! ... Read more

We wanted to be entertained and enjoy a relaxing week. As we didn't want to drink too much a drinks package would not be appropriate. But $8 for a small beer is just extortion! $40 for the cheapest wine which costs $10 bottle was out of ... Read more

This was our fourth time on this ship and it looked spruce after its refit.The cabin we choose proved to be a poor choice, 4076 it was at the entrance to the Atrium which after 5 p.m. was bubbling with noise and activities. The dining ... Read more

This was my very first cruise and was reminded several times by other cruisers to not base my cruising experience on this one ship (they said if this was their first experience they would probably not want to cruise again) This ship looks ... Read more

We have been thinking about visiting Greece many times but found it to be impossibly hot in the summertime. As I retire this fall we thought that it might be a good time and found this cruise. This is our second cruise ever and the first ... Read more

We booked this cruise somewhat last minute(for us anyway). Loved that it sailed out of Venice where we hadn't been before and had a good itinerary. We stayed at the Best Western Titian Inn near the airport for two days before and ... Read more

I have just returned from a weeks cruise on Vision of the Seas and before I leave my review I want to mention Captain Merak. I have never seen a Captain on a ship quite like him. Not only did he pose for the normal formal photos, he sang ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the dates (our 30th anniversary) and the itinerary. We arrived in a very rainy and wet Venice the day before the cruise and stayed near the people mover at the Hotel Olimpia, which we can thoroughly recommend. On ... Read more

We enjoyed our RCCL Vision of the Seas cruise. Unfortunately, we were served the worst hamburgers we've ever seen on a cruise line. A fair characterization of them would be hockey pucks, burnt ones. We were surprised the Spa Café, ... Read more

We did this two week back to back cruise from Venice, departing on the day our flight from the US arrived in Venice. Our flight was delayed in landing by 45 minutes due to fog. We later learned that we were lucky-some flights were ... Read more
