Vision is a sister ship of Grandeur which we sailed on Jan 2003 out of New Orleans. We loved Grandeur so much it was one of the reasons we booked the Vision trip. Since September 2001 we have taken 5 RCI cruises. All have been well worth the money, especially this cruise with very few if any complaints even now.

Vision came with everything we expect in a RCI vacation. A very clean ship, well serviced with lots to do. We found the shows average, but then again were not really show people, and our table mates seemed to enjoy them. We did our homework and booked our shore excursions or beach time ourselves well in advance over the net. Of our past cruises the shore excursions really seemed to be a value. Maybe it was just the location being Mexico, and our first time to the Mexican Riviera. We did horseback riding, chartered an offshore fishing trip, just $350 for the two of us for 8 hours of fantastic saltwater fishing, and enjoyed lots of beach time.

Our only negative experience with any RCI vacation did come on this trip. We were told before booking that Vision was like Grandeur in Every way. It's not. We really enjoyed the quiet relaxing atmosphere in Grandeur's Solarium pool and hot tubs. On Grandeur, at that time any way, it was an adults only area, this was not the case on Vision. Why children have to be in every pool on the ship is beyond me, but we were very disappointed. There was no place to sit, read, or relax by a pool that wasn't filled with screaming, cannonball jumping kids. We thought maybe we were over reacting until we overheard other people also complaining about it. Even though signs were posted everywhere forbidding it, children in diapers were allowed in the pools and hot tubs. When we complained we were told the staff didn't want to upset the parents.
