This was our 1st cruise, we chose the ship due to the itinerary and as a 'taster' to see if we would enjoy cruising. Well it was amazing! in fact we've been home 2 weeks and we've booked our next one for May 17 for hubby's birthday and to introduce our son to cruising. We couldn't fault anything from embarkation to the beautiful locations we visited. Santorini had by far the most amazing scenery. The food and service were outstanding, we ate at Chops Grille and had the most amazing steak. The food in the main dining room was excellent every other night with great choices. Our waiters Kingsley and Edwin were superb. We had a large interior cabin on deck 8 which was ideal. Zoe our housekeeper did a fantastic job and was always willing to help. Entertainment onboard was pretty good most nights, they all worked very hard to put on these shows. All port excursions we did ourselves at a fraction of the cost offered by the ship. Dubrovnik, we took the local bus to the old town and walked the walls, stunning views Ephesus we took the local bus 4euros return and did the tour ourselves, beautiful architecture Santorini, we hired a quad and drove to Oia, wow!! Breathtaking views Olympia we shared a private tour with another couple we met on the ship, also went to the Virgin Mary Church built into the caves Fantastic ship, would definitely cruise with Vision again
