This was my second cruise. My first was on a Carnival ship and people told me that RC was 10x better. Well not by my scale. The boat was crowded there were only 2 pools and 6 small (7 people hot tubs on the ship)
Our room was nice until it flooded while we were in Belize. We then had a fan for over 3 days trying to dry out our carpet so we could not enjoy our balcony state room.
While we have sailed on this class of vessel before, this was our first voyage on VISION and we had a wonderful time. Although she is an older ship, she went through rehab in 2013 and she looks great. The crew was among the best we have found an 10+ RCI cruises - everyone had a smile on their face and did everything they could to make our cruise the best possible experience.
Embarkation was a ...
Long time cruisers - Platinum status on Carnival and Diamond on RCCL. A few additional with Princess and Disney.
In some forty cruises this was by far the smallest cabin we have ever experienced. You can't sit squarely on the toilet because your leg hits the bathroom door. Standing in the shower your body literally will touch the wall and curtain at the same time! Regardless of which direction ...
1) the itinerary was changed after we made our final payment,
2) there was some kind of computer problem at the Tampa port and it took 1 1/2 hours to get checked in,
3) we had to leave Key West early because weather (uncontrollable),
4) we couldn't go to Labedee because of the protesting so ANOTHER sea day but we got to go to San Juan a little earlier,
5) RCCL didn't ...
The cruise started with a computer shut down on embarkation which caused many passengers to wait in the terminal 2-3 hours; there was no backup system to recover from this problem. Many passengers were put in group #'s but this did not help the boarding.
The ship is old and it appears that the recent upgrade was to improve the bottom line at the expense of customer satisfaction. A new policy, ...
This was my 62nd cruise. I have been on almost every cruise line and had fun on just about all of them.
The pro's for this cruise include: Captain Marek Slaby - he was more visible than ANY captain of any ship I have sailed. He sang in the Centrum, he played volley ball in the swimming pool, and even was wishing everyone a safe trip home as we were leaving the ship at the gang plank. ...
i sailed on RC's Vision of the Seas, Jan. 31 - Feb. 7, 2015. Absolutely horrendous experience. While on-board many many guests tried to convince each other to write in details the necessary reviews because it was consistent with guests that this trip was so bad.
1. FILTHY SHIP. Public men's restrooms were often without toilet paper but most always without paper towels. Urinals and floor ...
I am so surprised to see the rating for this ship was 68%. WOW- so many people seemed to "miss the boat".
This was my 5th RCI cruise, and 8th cruise overall, and by far, this was the most FUN crew we have ever sailed with!
If you are looking for a HUGE ship, or all the fancy chandeliers, or all the "bells and whistles" , then Vision of the Seas is not for you.
If, on the other hand, you ...
My husband, son and fiancé, and her parents, just returned from a seven night cruise on "Vision of the Seas" on RCI. We have all done previous cruises and this ship was, by far, the most FUN ship we have sailed with.
The Captain, actually sang for us, as well as having an evening that the crew members could entertain us as well. He played volleyball in the pool, made daily (humorous) ...
We had cruised on a similar sized ship 2 years ago and although the layout was different the feel was very familiar. We had worked out our way around the ship very quickly, even our 8 year old daughter. Everything is well sign posted.
Embarkation was a dream. We ended up not having the right document but the service lady was very helpful. As we got there early we didn't have to wait for a group ...
