Ship Facts: Vision of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Vision of the Seas Deck Plans
Review of the Ports; the Ship is being refurbed

There isn't much point in going into a lot of detail since this ship is scheduled to be refurbished. I will say that the food was much better than I had expected based on other reviews. The fresh bread each evening was downright wonderful. Desserts had little flavor beyond "sweet." Some entrees were fabulous, like the lamb shank, and others were mediocre. Even the mediocre stuff was still decent. They should skip the scallops as an appetizer though. My scallop was so over-cooked as to ruin it, and that's what I heard from everyone. The buffet food was...well...buffet food. I did appreciate the diversity of the buffet offerings.

The entertainment was pretty bad. When they paid for entertainment staff, such as the Russion folkloric dancers, it was pretty good. But all the energy and enthusiasm in the world cannot make up for the terrible, off-pitch singing of the ship's troupe.

The ambience was typical of a ship. The spa prices were ludicrously high. The casino was typical. The pools were nice.

The rooms definitely need modernizing, including at least one electrical outlet near the bed and not putting the reading lamps for the beds right where you want to sit and watch TV.
