  3. Vision of the Seas
Following a three night stay in Venice we joined the Vision of the Seas using the transfer provided from the Hotel Anthony. Getting on the ship was very easy as we had previously travelled with Royal Caribbean and as we had already pre booked the ultimate drinks package we headed straight for the cocktail bar. We decided to eat in the Italian restaurant on the first night and the food was exceptional. The ship whilst much smaller than previous ships we had been on had adequate facilities and an exceptional entertainment team. We chose second sitting dining in the Aquarius and on the second night met with our fellow diners who I can honestly say enhanced our holiday. We found the Windjammer restaurant exceptional in both the food offering and the choice with differing themes every day. (The Indian food was exceptional). The staterooms were comfortable although a bit noisy this did not cause us to be unable to sleep. The itinerary was well planned and the weather good considering the time of year. The ports of call were interesting and many in walking distance of the ship. The ship was a little tired in places but I believe you get what you pay for and the whole service and entertainment on offer far out weighed the need for a little bit of cosmetic improvement.

Cabin 2106
The cabin was adequate with plenty of storage for clothes. It was cleaned twice a day.
