Vision of the Seas - USA: Vision of the Seas Cruise Review by Jodi Mayo
Overall Member Rating
Vision of the Seas - USA
Destination: Mexican Riviera
Embarkation: Los Angeles
The food was terrific, and the European desserts were the best. I can not say enough about the food. Even though I had an inside stateroom, it was absolutely perfect. I slept so well, the beds are foam like and slept like a baby every night. With this ship being smaller, I felt everything, and I mean every wave that could be felt.
The best thing about the cruise was the dining and listening to the music of a pianist, she was so More terrific, she sang a lot of the older music slower tunes. If you want it slow, then I do recommend this cruise, if you like nightlife, stay home. This ship will offer it but not until after midnight and by then, who has the energy?? If I ever book another cruise again, I am going to doublecheck on the times of the activities.
I worked out every morning, and if you want a treadmill, they are limited between the times of 6 - 10AM. There are exercise classes at 8AM and forget about joining, the small floor is just too packed. The Solarium was beautiful and relaxing but often had a hard time finding a seat. I ALWAYS got an empty hot tub which I thought was pretty neat for being on a cruise ship with all those people. The rock climbing wall was only opened 2 hours during the day so I never got to the climbing. It is very cold on the ship, especially when you come back from Mexico. Bring a couple of sweatshirts and dress warm. I left my toddler at home and really wished I brought him. This cruise was slow enough to where I really wanted him around. I went with friends and still just really bummed with the entertaining on this ship. I do recommend it for people who do want a very SLOW pace. The ports were fine, everything is a challenge to get to a certain place, taxi to the beach, etc, you just did not seem to have enough time to do anything.
When I got back, I immediately started researching vacations on the "Fun Ship", never tried out Carnival so think I will look into this. Happy Sailing. Less
