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

Overall a very pleasant cruise. Our fourth cruise with Royal Caribbean and ninth overall. Ship is older and smaller but nicely refurbished. We had a junior site on the 8th deck. Our cabin steward was outstanding and the staff was ... Read more

This was our 6th cruise with Royal Caribbean and the first of the Vision of the Seas. We flew down 2 days early from the north east as we usually do in January accounting for weather delays. We stayed at the Marriot Waterside which is very ... Read more

This was our 6th Royal Caribbean cruise. The 10 day itinerary was Tampa, Key West, Aruba, Curacao, and Grand Cayman. Vision of the Seas is an old ship. It was pretty clean and only had the basics of any cruise ship.... complimentary ... Read more

Departure: Terminal 2, somewhat disorganized, escalators not working, one elevator, so we took the stairs. Otherwise, check in was went fairly well although they did not have tables where you can fill out the health form, so that was a ... 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

I've taken 5 Carnival Cruises ranging from 4 nights to 7 nights and Norwegian. The Vision of the Seas was my first Royal Caribbean cruise and it will be my last. The ship smelled like urine the entire time, hence "The Royal ... Read more

We just finished our fourth Christmas cruise, the second with Royal Caribbean, a seven-day trip on the Vision of the Seas out of Tampa cruise port #2. We have embarked/debarked at both of the Tampa cruise ports, and find #3 to be more ... Read more

We had another great cruise. I read many of the cruise reviews and understand some of the frustrations. I also realize that everything, every time may not go right. But, with that being said, I also make the best of everything. We ... Read more

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

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 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
