Following a three night stay in Venice we joined the Vision of the Seas using the transfer provided from the Hotel Anthony. Getting on the ship was very easy as we had previously travelled with Royal Caribbean and as we had already pre ... Read more

The ship does show its age a bit but it was the perfect size for us. Not a mega ship by all means. There were no crowds in key areas of the ship and the staff was very attentive. The waiters who took care of my husband and I were super! ... Read more

The ship is small, but enjoyed the Ports of calls to Greece, Croatia, and Turkey. The food was very good. There are only 2 complaints that I have, breakfast in the dinning room, was extremely slow... Long time to get order taken, and ... Read more

This was our fourth time on this ship and it looked spruce after its refit.The cabin we choose proved to be a poor choice, 4076 it was at the entrance to the Atrium which after 5 p.m. was bubbling with noise and activities. The dining ... Read more

This was my very first cruise and was reminded several times by other cruisers to not base my cruising experience on this one ship (they said if this was their first experience they would probably not want to cruise again) This ship looks ... Read more

We have been thinking about visiting Greece many times but found it to be impossibly hot in the summertime. As I retire this fall we thought that it might be a good time and found this cruise. This is our second cruise ever and the first ... Read more

We booked this cruise somewhat last minute(for us anyway). Loved that it sailed out of Venice where we hadn't been before and had a good itinerary. We stayed at the Best Western Titian Inn near the airport for two days before and ... Read more

I have just returned from a weeks cruise on Vision of the Seas and before I leave my review I want to mention Captain Merak. I have never seen a Captain on a ship quite like him. Not only did he pose for the normal formal photos, he sang ... Read more

Rust, bumps and scuffs everywhere. Pool decking has "potholes". Supposedly going to dry dock for a few weeks. Needs more than that. Ports were excellent choices. Shame that there are not more overnight stays in a few major ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the dates (our 30th anniversary) and the itinerary. We arrived in a very rainy and wet Venice the day before the cruise and stayed near the people mover at the Hotel Olimpia, which we can thoroughly recommend. On ... Read more

My first thoughts turn to the crew I thought they were amazing, very friendly and extremely helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for any of them. Our state room on deck 3 was a little tired looking but very clean, as was the shower ... Read more

We enjoyed our RCCL Vision of the Seas cruise. Unfortunately, we were served the worst hamburgers we've ever seen on a cruise line. A fair characterization of them would be hockey pucks, burnt ones. We were surprised the Spa Café, ... Read more

We did this two week back to back cruise from Venice, departing on the day our flight from the US arrived in Venice. Our flight was delayed in landing by 45 minutes due to fog. We later learned that we were lucky-some flights were ... Read more

Just back from a good sailing on the Vision of the Seas. We left from Venice, Italy and unfortunately did not have any time to explore Venice prior to our cruise due to a very bad experience with Transat Air's cruise ship transfers. (long ... Read more

We chose this cruise mostly because it went to Santorini, Greece, and honestly, it exceeded our expectations. We traveled together as a group of three sisters and shared an inside cabin. A part of me wishes that we just spent a little ... Read more

This ship, while older, is in great shape, and is the perfect size for a fun vacation. More importantly, the staff is amazing. There were SO many individuals that went above and beyond the call of duty, to ensure we had a great time. I ... Read more
