Began with 4 days in Amsterdam, which was just right for a thorough visit and to get over jet leg. Vision of the Seas is very dated and needs a complete overhaul. Agent said that it had been refurbished a few years ago but I have no ... Read more

We picked this cruise for the ports of call and they didn't disappoint. We especially enjoyed St Petersburg and Tallinn Estonia. We spent a few days before the cruise in Amsterdam and had a fantastic time, easy city to get around with ... Read more

This was our third time on the Vision, but the first time visiting the British Isles. We are Diamond status on RCCL. The Vision is an older ship with none of the "bells and whistles" of the newer larger ships, but we went for ... Read more

We chose this particular cruise for the ports as we had never been to any of them. Although we have cruised other lines, Royal Caribbean has been our first choice as is evidenced by our diamond level. Flew into Amsterdam four days early ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the ports. Certainly, not the ship. After cruising on Oasis, Allure, Anthem and the Freedom class ships, the Vision of the Seas leaves a lot to be desired. The exterior shows rust, the lifeboats, used for tenders, ... Read more

What a fantastic cruise! We chose this cruise initially for the port intensive itinerary and ended up loving both the ports and this little old ship. We spent a couple days in Amsterdam before embarking and the cruise port was very easy ... Read more

One of the things my wife and I thought about was how amazing the Human Resources department must be. If only 68% of the customers liked the cruise I would love to hear what their complaints are. Fine dining was an experience not only ... Read more

I felt they did the best they could. My only regret was when we were at sea the weather was bad and therefore people swarmed into the Solarium and it was jammed packed with seats taken all day. Not fair when people go to eat lunch they ... Read more

Amsterdam. If I ever wanted to live in a very large city, that would be the only acceptable one. We were only here for three days, mostly spent recuperating, so we missed the Rembrandt and Van Gogh museums and a few other things ... Read more
