worst service everywhere on the ship we have ever experienced. we have been on 9 rccl cruises. great captain merrick. but the food was terrible, entertainment was not acceptable,with exception to the vegas singer and the ventriloquist, and adult comic. but that was for 14 days. cabin storage was good. cabin noise was very bad #3583. we also stayed on for the next 7 day cruise Barcelona to ...

I spent 21 nights on The Vision of the Seas starting with the transtlantic cruise to Barcelona and then the cruise from Barcelona to Venice. Captain Merek is amazing! He was the most visible and interactive captain I have ever sailed with. He has a great sense of humor. He sang for us, did most of the announcements himself during the cruises and kept us informaed of weather conditions, birthdays, ...

Had a great time! We opted for an interior cabin in the middle of the ship as it was our first transatlantic. We purchased a 3 dinner package at embarkation. We loved the chops grill, the food and services was over the top. When we booked we were concerned of how the swells might be a problem for my husband. Even with the largest of waves it was really no problem. The cabin was pretty good, ...

General: My wife and I chose this cruise because of some friends on the cruise, the ports visited, and our ability to get a Grand Suite at a really good deal. After a nice flight on SouthWest from Sacramento to Tampa, we were pleasantly surprised by our stay at the Crowne Plaza Westshore located close to the airport. A hotel shuttle quickly picked us up and transported us to the hotel where we ...

We chose this cruise to be with great friends and travel the Atlantic with so many sea days. We love being at sea and appreciate the activities and time to kick back and relax. We loved the evening Diamond/Diamond Plus events and spent many hours visiting with old friends and making new ones. The crew were awesome and the Captain sure set the tone. He was everywhere and was a real leader for the ...

An inexpensive way to get to Europe, but not a luxury cruise.

We chose this cruise as an inexpensive and fun way to get to Europe. The ship was older than previous TA cruises we've taken. We liked the smaller size of the ship because it was easier to learn our way around, and meant we bumped into the same people on a regular basis. We were disappointed that our inside cabin didn't have a fridge as on other ships, and that the gym was so small - all that ...

Our transatlantic voyage on the Vision of the Seas was a lovely experience. There were some minor issues, but our goal was to get to Europe in the most pleasant and economical way possible. The weather was generally very good with just a few instances of rainy weather that resulted in some instability. We had no trouble with walking or sea sickness during these very few times. The Vision of ...

Our 2nd transatlantic cruise with RC. Will always try to travel to Europe this way instead of flying, which we find torture. We don't drink or take excursions as we find these very overpriced, but always enjoy our cruises. My wife and I traveled with a friend and were given a family cabin (Cabin 2532) which was perfect for us. The cabin steward, Arlin, was great - low key, friendly and ...

Before the cruise we spent 4 days in beautiful FUN St. Petersburg, loved the city so much. We chose this cruise to get us to Europe and because we did the same cruise last year and had an amazing trip. Deck 10 was very dirty the first week and they seemed to be working on the pool or hot tubs every other day. Very bad smells deck 4 thru 6 interior around the Centrum bathrooms, smelled it ...

My trip was a triple back to back to back 28 day. Did cruise at same time as popcorn52 and totally agree with her comments. Best Capt. (Merak) ever. Food was so-so but that's the standard with Royal Caribbean now. But plenty of it. Too bad you have to go to a specialty restaurant to get a decent steak. Probably on purpose. Prefer Princess overall however RCL's dining rooms are laid out better. Now ...
