We boarded Royal Caribbean Vision of The Seas in Lisbon for an 8 day cruise up the western coast of Europe on April 29, 2012. We had arrived in Lisbon several days early and really enjoyed the city. Our ports were Vigo and Gijon in Spain; Portland, UK; Zeebrugge, Belgium; Amsterdam; then ending in Oslo. We enjoyed all the ports and recommend them.
Our suite was 8538. The furniture was worn and nicked. Actually, the whole ship needs new furniture. It is tired.
The staff and people were all very nice that we came in contact with. Our cabin attendant was excellent.
Cabin 8538 had good space. However, if you go to bed early, you can hear the bands and music from the atrium below. Also, you can hear people walking above you on the public deck.
