Ship Facts: Vision of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Vision of the Seas Deck Plans
Great Ports, Good Staff, OK Ship, Ok Food
We boarded Royal Caribbean Vision of The Seas in Lisbon for an 8 day cruise up the western coast of Europe on April 29, 2012. We had arrived in Lisbon several days early and really enjoyed the city. Our ports were Vigo and Gijon in Spain; Portland, UK; Zeebrugge, Belgium; Amsterdam; then ending in Oslo. We enjoyed all the ports and recommend them.

Our suite was 8538. The furniture was worn and nicked. Actually, the whole ship needs new furniture. It is tired.

The staff and people were all very nice that we came in contact with. Our cabin attendant was excellent.

The food in the buffet upstairs was not good, unless you are a fan of powdered eggs. The line for a real egg omelet was usually pretty long. Lunch at the buffet was just OK. There wasn't much variety. Dinner and lunch in the formal dining room was much better. I loved the salad bar option in the formal dining room.

Actually, we did love all the ports. But Oslo was a mixed bag. We stayed there 2 nights after we got off the ship. Oslo is beautiful, but EXPENSIVE. We had a bowl of fish soup at the cheapest restaurant we could find that cost $20.00 each. A beer at a moderate place costs $15.00 to $17.00. If you are going to Oslo, take out a second mortgage on your house before you go so you can afford a good meal.
