Thumbs up for Vision of the seas
Destination: Middle East
Entertainment on-board was overall pretty good. We caught the headliner shows. After port visits though we skipped the shows and relaxed in one of the lounges instead.
Staff were friendly, although we were a little disappointed in our steward. Not entirely switched on - we found someone else's sea pass card in our room, and also he left his empty soda can in there too. There were other irritations - but he did make up some lovely swan towels:)
Our port stops were great. Much, much cheaper to visit Israel with GTI, but even then it is still an expensive place to visit. We all loved Ephesus - a must see place. Kusadasi Taxi's (CAN taxi) picked us up at port and took us to Ephesus and back again for only 50 euro. Very efficient and friendly. Highly recommended. Athens was a lot dirtier than we expected, but we loved the changing of the guard in front of parliament at 12md.
All in all we have some fantastic memory's and great photographs. Loved Vision of the Seas - a lovely ship and a great introduction to cruising. Less
