Cruise Critic Editor Rating: Cabins

Cabins aboard Vision of the Seas feature two twin beds, which can be combined into a king-sized bed (72.5 inches wide by 82 inches long), two bedside tables with drawers, two closets and a mirrored vanity/desk with drawers and chair. To each side of the mirror, doors open to reveal extra shelving. There's a flat-panel television featuring a variety of channels, a phone and a hair dryer. A set of shelves near the vanity includes a safe.

Conspicuously missing from the interior, oceanview and balcony rooms is a mini-refrigerator, which has become pretty much standard on most ships, but you can ask your stateroom attendant if you require one (such as for medication that must be refrigerated).

Each room includes a private bathroom with toilet, sink and shower. There are mounted dispensers in the shower with shampoo and soap (no conditioner).

There are accessible cabins in every category, as well as Ultra Spacious oceanview cabins suited for families, since they include a separate bedroom with bunk beds (see Oceanview below).

The cabins appear to show more wear and tear than other areas of the ship, with well-worn bedding, carpeting and furnishings that have endured two decades of use. The interior cabins, starting at just 132 square feet, are small compared both to ships in RCI's and other cruise line fleets.

Interior: Ranging from 132 feet to 151 square feet, interior rooms are snug, especially for more than two passengers. Seating space in the smaller rooms is limited to just a single chair rather than a sofa, and there's a tiny round table that is not particularly useful. There is a larger closet space with upper and lower racks for hanging items, and a secondary closet space that is mainly used for life jacket storage. Bathrooms are about 17 square feet with a toilet, sink and curved shower with detachable shower head. On Deck 8 midship, you can find some larger interior cabins, at 174 square feet.

Oceanview: Vision offers Large Ocean View (154 square feet), Ultra Spacious Ocean View (233 square feet) and Panoramic Ocean View cabins (193 square feet) cabins, all with windows overlooking the ocean. In these cabins, you'll find a sleeper sofa that can accommodate two people. The Ultra Spacious Ocean View -- formerly called a Family Ocean View -- features a separate bedroom with bunk beds in addition to the main sleeping area. Panoramic Ocean View cabins offer floor-to-ceiling windows.

Balcony: Spacious Ocean View Balcony cabins (195 square feet) on Vision include a double sofa bed in addition to the main two beds, plus an optional pull-down bed to sleep up to five passengers. The balcony measures 35 square feet and includes two chairs and a small table.

Junior Suite: Junior suites (643 square feet) include a bedroom, small sitting area and a private balcony (66 square feet). The sitting area includes a double sofa sleeper bed. The bathroom includes a bathtub. Junior suites also include a mini-refrigerator.

Suites: There are three types of suites onboard Vision of the Seas and suite passengers have access to the Concierge Club onboard, as well as priority check-in and tendering, luggage valet services, luxury bathrobes, complimentary pressing service on formal nights and reserved seating during performances.

Grand Suite: You can choose from either a one-bedroom (353 square feet) or two-bedroom (509 square feet) Grand Suite, for four or eight people, respectively. You'll have a bedroom, living area with sofa bed and a 110-square-foot balcony. The larger option features two bedrooms, each with two twin beds that can convert to a king, and two bathrooms -- one with a shower and one with a tub -- along with a living area and sofa bed, but a smaller balcony at 56 square feet.

Owner's Suite: The one-bedroom Owner's Suite measures 523 square feet and sleeps up to five people, with a separate bedroom, living area and a private balcony that's 104 square feet.

Royal Suite: The ship's largest stateroom at 1,140 square feet, this suite sleeps up to four, with a king bed in the bedroom, a spacious dining area and a double sleeper sofa in the living room, where you'll also find a baby grand piano. The bathroom features a whirlpool tub. The balcony is 110 square feet.
