  3. Vision of the Seas
We went on this cruise with a group 10 (9 of us are retired) including 4 brand new retirees. Since we are a group ranging in age from 55 to 80 (most in the 55-65 range) we were looking for an active cruise agenda and some fun ports of call. Most of us are fairly novice cruisers (less than 5 cruises) and we wanted to keep to a cruise of less than 7 days. We thoroughly enjoyed the cruise agenda and the staff of the Vision of the Seas was top notch. The ship is a bit on the smaller side and is dated in some areas, but is a beautiful ship inside and out. The food was excellent and the stops at Coco Cay and Key West were fantastic. Our only negative was Nassau. The city has some nice restaurants and attractions, but the locals are very aggressive around the port in hawking debarking passengers for taxi, tours and other offers ... its a but unsettling. Additionally, the city is not all handicapped friendly ... streets and sidewalks are narrow and uneven without many ramps or access points for wheelchairs. We hit some rough seas on the return trip to New Orleans and several of us were a bit queazy over the final day and evening. Overall, a great experience made so by the staff of the Vision.

Cabin Review

Spacious Ocean View Balcony
Cabin 2B 7060
The cabin was nice with many drawers and cubby holes to store all our stuff. The biggest issue is the cloth shower curtains do a poor job go keeping water in the shower ... every shower the bathroom floor is soaked.
