Sail Date: Jan 2016
Cabin: Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

This was our 6th Royal Caribbean cruise. The 10 day itinerary was Tampa, Key West, Aruba, Curacao, and Grand Cayman. Vision of the Seas is an old ship. It was pretty clean and only had the basics of any cruise ship.... complimentary dining, specialty dining, casino, fitness center etc..... no other special features except for a rock climbing wall. This made for a lackluster experience and all we did was eat, lounge around the pool, and drink. There were 8 in our group.

Embarkation was smooth. We arrived around noon and went through the check in process quickly. We were on the ship within 30 minutes. Cabins were available around 1:00.

Aquarius Dining Room (complimentary). We had My Time dining and I had made pre-reservations for the nights we ate there. The reservations were honored on all occasions and we were seated at our assigned time. The menu selections were fair and the food was basic to poor. Nothing special really and in some cases without much flavor or creativity. We did notice that as the cruise week progressed the food got a little better. We did have breakfast and lunch here a couple of times and those meals were okay. The bread offerings were pretty good and the desserts were fair.

Cabin Review

Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony

Cabin D2

This cabin is smaller than most other RCI cabins in this category, mainly due to the age of the ship. It is conveniently located near the forward stairs and elevators. Pretty quiet too. It was visibly clean but old and tired looking. Under the bed was filthy and dusty... we found 3 jawbreakers, 2 pencils, and 2 candy wrappers under the bed so they obviously had not cleaned under there in awhile.

Port Reviews

Grand Cayman (Georgetown)

we took a taxi ride to Royal Palms Beach Club... Nice facility with al amenities.


We arrived a day early and stayed at the Tamp Waterside Marriott and Marina. I'd stay here again.

Key West

We just did a self walking tour.
