Ship Facts: Vision of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Vision of the Seas Deck Plans
RCCL Vision winter 2013
We left Ft. Lauderdale Jan 25, getting on board went smoothly, but we could not go to the cabin till 1:30. With that we headed to the buffet and found many others there, but did get a seat and had a wonderful choice of foods.

We arrived into the room and made sure we took precaution to take handy wipes to clean many touched areas, not knowing how well they do things from one cruise to another.

Cabin stewart came and we got the few needed things we needed and made arrangements for the necessary ice each day. All that was taken care of with no problem, even additional hangers.

After munster drill we went to sail away, but it seemed no one showed from cruise critic.

Our luggage arrived in time to unpack and get settled in before dinner. We chose MTD and since we agreed to sit with anyone and to share we hardly had any problems. We did wait a short time to fill the table if we were first, but at one time we decided to order as we had waited long enough. I did think they could handle that a bit better compared to experiences on other lines. I did not like being asked to make a fixed time for MTD, as we like to go at our time not theirs, after a couple of nites we weren't asked any longer.

Our first stop Tortola BVI we went on a tour with Christopher Tour Mr Penn, an Island tour and was very good. St John's Antigua took a tour with someone at the port, but that was not the best. He did little talking about the island and can't remember who it was to say that he wasn't the best.

Martinque, is nothing but a large city, speaking French and uses Euro's, most people decided it was a place they didn't need to come back to.

St. Kitts, was a very enjoyable place. We had our own arranged tour with Roystontours, with Royston a very nice young fellow that has a great old Toyota van without windows and it was a fun day. He takes you around the island and provides a lunch sandwich and beverage could have had time at the beach but we just walked, and then got back into the van after eating at this stop, about 5 hrs and he had 5 of us knowing each other for about 7 hrs. He took us off the road to some rough places that we wondered if he would get stuck but he certainly knew what he was doing. He also included the price to get into Brimstone.

St Maarten we paid to go by water taxi as for some the walk into the town area may be to much. Didn't do anything here, but looked and looked at all the jewelry stores.

Can not say enough how beautiful the waters are and the seas were calm for our 10 days.

The Vison is old but is being kept up, it is going in for a refurbishing in the spring,but will add those specialty restaurants for one of new changes for that ship.

We enjoyed in the dining room the buffet set up for breakfast and lunch had a nice salad bar. You also can just pick you choices from the menu. I do wish the dining room would be open on port days not just the sea days.

Entertainment was o.k. but at least they try to have a variety. Entertainment and food seems to be one the things that have changed over our years of cruising, but we still try to enjoy what is offered.

Hope others will enjoy cruising and this will help you in any questions you may have.
