My husband is the cruise addict. I go along because cruising makes him happy. However Royal Caribbean, Vision of the Seas is a wonderful vacation. We had an interior, aft cabin (2109). To our surprise, there was ample room and although we expected to be rocking and rolling at the aft portion of the ship, we were simply lulled to sleep by the gentle rocking of the ship. Being in the aft portion was not a problem.

There are two minor problems with the room. (1) if you have the beds made as a king, one person is asleep without any exit to the facilities during the night and must crawl to the bottom of the bed, or crawl over the other person to get out of bed. (2) The room has a small coffee table that is really unnecessary. We put the table in the closet and were then surprised with how comfortable the room was.

Arrival was a bit strained, perhaps due to our fault. We traveled with my father-in-law who uses a wheelchair. Unlike other cruise lines that allowed the entire party to go with the wheelchair, RCI only allows 1 person to accompany a party in a wheelchair. After waiting in the handicapped line for 30 minutes, we were informed the rest of us had to go to the back of the line. We should have been advised of this before the 30 minute wait. Check-in, other than the snafu we experienced was quick and painless.
