  3. Vision of the Seas
We were originally booked on the Legend of the Seas (RCI) for a Singapore to Dubai cruise with 4 stops in India. It was just what we wanted. Cruise booked and paid for - we were then notified that the Legend of the Seas was being sold and our cruise cancelled. We had to find something else. So we transferred to this cruise. Had a suite booked on the Legend - couldn't get one on the Vision because their were sold out. A number of things booked on the Legend could not be afforded to us on the Vision. Overall the cruise destinations and ports were good. Staff onboard the ship were just wonderful. However, the entertainment was shocking. We saw only two shows with the singers/dancers from the ship. The rest of the 'headliner' acts were all paid to be there. Bill the Cruise Director I believe needs to move on and get some vibrancy into the program. The shows were geared toward a select group of people from a select age group - rarely did you see a young crowd in the theatre. Too much was being held inside and not enough activities on the upper decks outside. If you come across Michaela (dining room), Seby (Windjammer) or Natalia (jewelry shop) you have struck an absolute stunning group of staff who would turn the ship upside down to help you. We found the balcony cabins extremely small on this ship comparative to other cruise lines. The junior suites on RCI are about the same size as other lines that we are used to on other lines. Food: stick with the dining room or specialty restaurants. The Windjammer (buffet) is not great - perhaps for breakfast or something really quick.

Cabin Review

Cabin 7098
Cabin steward was brilliant. The cabin was extremely ordinary. Comparative to other lines we have sailed with, this cabin was so small. We learnt from other seasoned cruisers that when booking, you should ask how big the cabin is that you're booking. Apparently each cabin has a different floor dimension but everyone pays the same.
