We chose the vision of the seas for its itinerary leaving from Bayonne, NJ and sailing fourteen days to Galveston, Texas. We were very unhappy with the pools and hot tubs. They had handicapped lifts that did not reach the wheelchair but were five feet into the air! The pool lift only reached into shallow water and would not reach into the pool itself. We have cruised on over 150 cruises ...

The Centrum was not a good place to have the Halloween Party. You would have to get there a hour early to get a seat. And not much seating for the crowd they had. The Centrum deck 4. You had to go to deck 5, 6, 7, 8 and lean on the glass railing to look over to see anything. This is where the flag ceremony was of the different nations. Same thing. Had to go to upper deck and stand and lean ...

We really enjoyed our first repositioning. The only downside was disembarkation--we did not want to leave. Shout out to the Park West team: Daniel, Christina, Dimitri, Kathy and Anri. We really enjoyed getting to know you and Daniel's seminars on art were very informative and well done. We also enjoyed breakfast every morning in the MDR. We had great service, food and conversation with the ...

Enjoyed the ship. Easy to navigate, not too large. About 1,900 passengers. Entertainment was very good. Cruise director Steve and his assistant Talita were excellent! Staff was very courteous. Captain was about the ship a lot and kept guests informed on PA system of what was happening with weather, delays, announcements and so forth. Interacted with guests, performed at a couple of shows and ...

It's a smallish ship - better for a short trip

I can't resist a good deal on a cruise and since we thought the Allure of the Seas was a bit too large I thought that a 14 day repositioning cruise on the Vision would be a great choice. And overall, it was a very good cruise- the ship is older but in good condition and as always the RCI crew were wonderful. There were a lot of upper tier RCI cruisers ( i.e. pinnacle ) and this was the first ...

Love the Vision class and this ship did not change our opinion. Size is perfect for what we prefer in a ship. We did find some of the staff to be disconnected, mainly in the Diamond Lounge, R Bar and Windjammer. Very short staffed in Diamond lounge; the few waiters would totally avoind the back side of Some Enchanted Evening Lounge, with the exception of Laura who ran rings around the ...

The itinerary and length of cruise. We wanted some sea days and ports of call with sunny beaches. Our 18 year old grand daughter also enjoyed the cruise and shore excursions. The crew provided excellent service. The Excursion staff was efficient and helpful. Sorry to see the bean counters taking over management of the cruise industry, as those things that make cruising an experience can not ...

Chose this cruise for the itinerary. Sailed from New York (actually Port Liberty, NJ) to Galveston, TX via Bermuda, Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, Grand Cayman, Cozumel, Costa Maya, and Progreso. Initially, we were worried about sailing on the Vision since it was a smaller, older ship but we were pleasantly surprised in the really great condition it was in for it's age. None of the bells and whistles ...

I chose this cruise for the itinerary and that it ended in Galveston, close to home. The food was vey good, nice variety. The service was especially nice. The ship is older but it has been maintained very well. Because the ship is smaller than the newer ones, it has less activities but it was fine for us. There is of course a casino, bingo, contests, etc. There was pleanty for someone to do. We ...
