Vision of the Seas Cruise Review by jgrkld293
- Sail Date: August 2017
- Destination: Transatlantic
In fairness, the Park Cafe staff was friendly and on the ball and some of the Aquarius restaurant staff were helpful in correcting errors. Unfortunately, the cabin attendants, and guest relations staff were out to lunch. The Windjammer was absolutely gross, forcing us to eat off the ship when in port. Royal only has one dinning venue when the ship ports, that being the Windjammer. Izumi Asian restaurant was a nice evening alternative to the dinning room.
The on board entertainment was average with the exception of the rock cover band, Rookie. Rookie was the best cruise entertainment I've seen in 60-70 cruises. The balance of the shows were the usual; magicians, card tricks and diva singing. In my view, most of it wasn't worth the time.
Our cabin attendant was nicknamed the invisible man. He was never around, so if something was needed, the attendant done the hall helped. Royal seems to suffer from under staffing.
The food in Aquarius featured cold fish, poorly executed sauces and indifferent service. It was so bad that the sauces were often indistinguishable from one day to the next.
Royal is a cheap ticket to travel, don't expect an upscale experience. Despite the on board problems I'd repeat the trip because of the ten ports featured in the itinerary. On board, Royal is challenging NCL and Carnival for the low rent bottom.
