This is a smaller, older but well maintained ship and by far, my favorite. The smaller ship eliminated most of the things I don't use on a larger ship and allowed guests who participated in the same type of activities to get to know one another more intimately to the point of becoming friends. I participated in my first "flash mob" and all the dance classes and opportunities to dance without a ...

This was our first cruise, now we know why people who have taken cruises continue to cruise. The Vision of the Seas is a well maintained beautiful ship. The crew is dedicated to meeting your every need, so much so, that we did not always want to leave the ship for our shore excursions. Royal Caribbean has done an excellent job in hiring good people and creating a culture in which the crew has ...

My Wife and I booked this cruise during one of RCI's BOGO 50% off sales, and it was only about $1400 for both of us. This was our 2nd cruise, with our first being on Allure of the Seas, and we knew going in that this ship was going to be a lot smaller. Everything leading up to boarding, as well as boarding the ship was very smooth, and was only running about 5-10 minutes behind the advertised ...

For our first time cruise, my adult children and I were impressed by everything, lol! I know the ship is considered small, but for the first time, it was perfect! The cabins were great...I had an oceanview while my kids shared an inside cabin. Plenty of space in both! I had no idea what to expect however from boarding to disembarking, the experience was great. Yes there were tons of people ...

We had a great time. Cruise ship was clean, service was exceptional, food was very good. Somehow I wish a cruiseline would ban smoking in the casino. I lost $20 in the slot machines and I had to get out of there..the smoke was so thick. Even after you leave, your hair and clothes reak of smoke. Not good when you're living out of a suitcase and re-wearing some items of clothing. In my opinion, keep ...

RCI as it SHOULD be

I spend several months each year at sea - frequently on RCI taking advantage of their "perks" for high cruisers, as well as their single friendly cruise fares. I must admit that lately, with all the cutbacks, constant appeals to spend money and many other aggregations that my happiness aboard RCI has been diminishing. It was nice to be aboard Vision, one of their oldest ships, for this western ...

This was our third cruise. Travel into Tampa was fine, transportation to the ship was good and embarking was very smooth. We had to get up early for our flight though and we were pretty beat once we started leaving Tampa. It started raining and we ended up calling it an early night although we wanted to stay on deck as we went under the bridge (forget the name of it). Spent a lot of time on ...

Food and Staff Excellent, but Ship is Old and Amenities are Limited

I booked five cabins for a family reunion cruise - three small suites and two oceanview. I've cruised several times on other Royal Caribbean ships and on other cruise lines - Vision was limited in types of entertainment and onboard amenities (music venues, no cooking demos, limited bars, no educational port lectures, etc). The suites and their bathrooms were small, and I was shocked that the ...

Dining Experience Good; Other Experiences Very Negative

First, the dining experience did exceed my expectations - but this was the only area that did. Antonio was wonderful - friendly, hard-working, attentive to each of my family member's preferences - a wonderful server! Cyprian also was very good, although there always seemed to be excessive noise in the dining hall when he was explaining choices, and with his accent it was difficult to understand ...
