Review of Vision of the Seas, Transatlantic Galveston to Barcelona, April 19th to May 6th 2019 – 17 nights. Overview: Amazing trip, great ship, superb crew. The whole trip was amazing with one major issue, which was the medical staff/facilities and one minor issue, which was new sheets that were dirty (bloodstains) on the sofa bed, the new sheets they sent were also badly stained, so we ...

I would like to commend the following crew members that made this cruise so enjoyable, especially Imade, our cabin steward who provided superior service; Oswin, a head waiter at the Aquarius dining room who went out of his way to accommodate our every request and ensure that our dining experience was first class. His personal attention carried over at the Windjammer during breakfast and lunch; ...

The sad old boat that just wouldn't go.

Vision of the seas is an old vision of the past, not retro-cool, just old. Old enough for the engine not to start. I will try to be short and assertive, honest and willing to give you future traveler a good advise. And it doesn't end good. Vision of the seas is an old boat built in 1998, so there is a very strong risk that something goes wrong; in our experience the problem was that the boat ...

We arrived at the port a little before noon and boarded the ship within 10 minutes. Embarkation was quick and easy. We enjoyed a drink in the Viking Crown Lounge and rooms were ready by 1:30. Luggage delivered by 5:00. It’s a small ship and very easy to get around. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Everything was clean and well maintained Food in Main Dining Room was very good ...

Old outdated ship

First Time Cruiser • Age 20s

The ship was old and the rooms were small, especially the restrooms. The decoration was old and tacky. I was afraid yo walk bare footed on the floor. There was no turkey bacon. The arcade was tiny with about 4 games, boring. Lane 12 during checkin back yo the U.S was slow. So much for a peaceful vacay. We went to Progresso where the locals asked you to purchase things while trying to relax at the ...

Wonder if this is a training ship?

We chose this cruise based on the airfare availability and price. We would have preferred a departure from Florida but it was way too expensive. We wanted a short cruise to introduce our children to cruising. My wife and I are Emerald C&A members with RC and were anxious to get back to cruising after a break to raise the kids. To say the experience was poor would be an understatement. We got ...

This cruise left out of Galveston. The nearest airport is 40 minutes away, and the major airport is 70 minutes out of Houston. It wasn't a problem taking an Uber to our hotel or from the hotel to the port. (I think we paid around $60 from George Bush Airport to Galveston.) We stayed at the Comfort Inn, which was across the street from the beach and one block away from Walmart. It worked ...

My family and I sailed out of Galveston, Texas. This was the first cruise for everyone in our party. Parking at the port was relatively cheap and embarkation was very smooth. My in-laws are from China and they were pleasantly surprised to be greeted in Mandarin when coming on-board and to find that we had a Chinese server in the Windjammer at lunch. The interior cabins we booked were snug but ...

This ship is just the right size for us. Everything is easily found and without a lot of walking. The Windjammer and the Dining Room were fantastic. The food quality and the service is top flight. Our room man kept the room spotless. Looking forward to our next trip. We have been on the biggest ships with Royal Caribbean and we can honestly say we prefer this smaller one. Just an easier cruise and ...

Cruised RC before and loved every minute of it...this time not so much. Great food and beverage service! Desmond and Ohla took wonderful care of us at My Time Dining. They were attentive and fun! Bar service was quick and friendly. Only negative was no self service beverage stations like other RC ships and had to wait at bar just for a soda. Entertainment was really good for a small ship. ...
