For an older ship the Brilliance was in good shape. Plus the staff was excellent. We felt like RC put gave their best to a repositioning cruise. Entertainment and food was not sub par for this cruise, in fact it felt like it was ... Read more

5 night maiden voyage with my cousin. I am an Indy fan. From parking car to check in to boarding to holding a glass of champagne on board saying wow to myself 10-15 mins. I boarded onto Royal Esplanade and just said 'wow'. Ovation of ... Read more

Had a great time! We opted for an interior cabin in the middle of the ship as it was our first transatlantic. We purchased a 3 dinner package at embarkation. We loved the chops grill, the food and services was over the top. When we booked ... Read more

Our 2nd transatlantic cruise with RC. Will always try to travel to Europe this way instead of flying, which we find torture. We don't drink or take excursions as we find these very overpriced, but always enjoy our cruises. My wife ... Read more

We chose this cruise as an inexpensive and fun way to get to Europe. The ship was older than previous TA cruises we've taken. We liked the smaller size of the ship because it was easier to learn our way around, and meant we bumped into ... Read more

Our transatlantic voyage on the Vision of the Seas was a lovely experience. There were some minor issues, but our goal was to get to Europe in the most pleasant and economical way possible. The weather was generally very good with just a ... Read more

General: My wife and I chose this cruise because of some friends on the cruise, the ports visited, and our ability to get a Grand Suite at a really good deal. After a nice flight on SouthWest from Sacramento to Tampa, we were pleasantly ... Read more

Our travel agent got us a good deal, to include extra nights in Brazil and Barcelona. Never been to Brazil before, and the itinerary suited us with 7 days at sea, the cruise ended in Barcelona and we only live 1 hour flight away. We ... Read more

Fantastic cruise, As a solo cruiser it was the best ever, I met lots of solo women my age group, someone to dine with every night. There was more than enough activities to keep me occupied even the eight days at sea there was plenty ... Read more

We boarded in Barcelona on a Transatlantic to Brazil. To start applying for the Brazilian Visa was a big hassle which took over 3 weeks to finalize. Boarding process was not too bad but there were a lot of confusion at the beginning. ... Read more

This was the 3rd RCI cruise of the year for my wife and I, the others were on the Allure and the Explorer. We were concerned that this Vision class ship might be too small in comparison to the others and we were a bit concerned as to how ... Read more

This was our 8th TA with RCL/Celebrity and with the exception of what can only be described as the most diabolical Wi Wi system and very poor immigration arrangements in Tampa, my wife and I had a great cruise, if not quite, an exceptional ... Read more

Like others, we were also NOT "WOWed" by this cruise.Embarkation was the high point of the trip! Once on-board, the front-line service personnel (from waiters to bar tenders to cabin stewards) were very nice & seemed quite ... Read more

We were very excited about our transatlantic cruise when we arrived at check in we were asked to sit in a section with no explanation. I asked some staff and they did not know it was a very long wait and not the best start. Once on board ... Read more

I have never written a cruise review before but there seems to be some huge variations in what people experienced i felt it only fair to forward our experiences. Our party consisted of my wife and I who have done about 10 cruises over ... Read more
