RCCL -VISION OF THE SEAS - CARNIVAL CRUISE IN BRAZIL
Destination: South America
Embarkation: Santos (Sao Paulo)
D. Room : My time dining is the best thing you can ask for. Dining seats in Brazil are later than usual ( 07:30 pm and 10:30 pm ) We had a nice table for 2 by the window using the my time dining system . It worked perfect and we were there at 8 om every day. The service at the Dining Room was impeccable... real gold anchor standard as they like to call . 2 Brazilian gents waiter ed our table during the whole cruise and they just went above and beyond all the time compensating the lack of taste in some of the dishes offered on board.
Public Areas : Unlike other RCCL ships, vision was quite dirty in public areas. Not only the elevators but all golden metal on board were filthy , greasy and full of fingerprints . Not the normal cleanliness standard that RCCL had in the past.
Ports: Sunny weather helped us during the cruise. Ports were amazing for those who likes to eat fresh seafood and enjoy pristine beaches. Buzios was the top of the trip and Salvador was worth it by its architecture and colonial beauty . Many people left the ship to go dance and enjoy carnaval in Salvador as the ship overnight ed there but we decided to enjoy one of the many parties held by the pool deck.
Overall : We enjoyed this cruise and the carnaval atmosphere on board. It was a nice way to celebrate it and fell safe at same time. Tough 20 different nationalities were on board, 99% were Brazilians so bare in mind that Portuguese is the spoken language on board ( even tough most of the announcements are done in English too) Less

A bit of a let down
