Traveled with children

We took a 12 night Baltic cruise on the Vision of the Seas in July 2017 and had a great time. Here are my comments by category:

Pre-cruise and check-in: We did our air, transfers, and hotel through RC and everything went well. The hotel in Amsterdam was about a 10 minute walk from Central Station and was, I thought, outstanding. The transfer from the airport was flawless; there was a little confusion about the time of our pickup on the way to the ship, but in the end it all worked out. The check-in line was long but moved quickly. Our luggage arrived before we set sail.

Room: We had a stateroom with a balcony. It was about the size we’ve had on other cruises. Our daughter had a sofa bed rather than a Pullman. Everything was comfortable. The room had both 110 and 220 outlets. The balcony fit 2 chairs and a small table comfortably. Our stateroom steward was very nice and did a great job. There was no shampoo or soap when we arrived, but she quickly got us some.

Cabin Review

Family Ocean View Stateroom

Cabin FF

Pretty typical stateroom. Small bathroom. King bed plus sofa bed. They had our daughter sleep on the "sofa" not the pullout bed because there's no room for the coffee table if the sofa is open. She was, however, very comfortable as the cushions were pretty wide. Balcony had the basic 2 chairs and small table. We had PLENTY of storage space for clothes and other items. Good size closet, lots of cabinets. Our suitcases fit under the bed. Room was quiet. There were other rooms above us and shops below us. I think this cabin is a very good location. Service was very good.

Port Reviews


We did the trip to Voegaard Castle. It was about a 45 minute bus ride from the port. Along the way we stopped at the remnants of an old church as well. The castle was filled with not Danish, but mainly French and Chinese artifacts the family had collected. There are dinner settings from Napoleon and Marie Antoinette among the exhibits. Big negative: no pictures inside. Positive: scenic pictures outside. On the way back we stopped at a restaurant for a Danish pastry. My 16 year old loved this tour!
