Cabin was quite far forward on board but very close to the lifts. Having previously experienced very poor weather on cruises were were pleased to find ourselves low and close to the water but we need not have bothered as it was flat clam throughout the week. Cabin steward was exceptional in every respect.
Because the ship is not in the first flush of youth the cabins are smaller than are found on the more modern ships and there are far fewer cabins with balconies but we did not miss a balcony and the only time we spent in our cabin was for sleeping and that, to me, is the sign of a good cruise.

Our cabin was very clean and up to date, bed was very comfortable , air conditioning worked great , even in the heat of the summer in the Mediterranean !! Our cabin steward was very nice and very helpful his name was Iwayan. Our bath was very nice,updated, however the shower curtain could have been replaced with a door to keep it from clinging to you when you showered. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was an Oceanview. one, Small, but adequate. it was in a quiet spot. We new we would not be spending a lot of time in our Cabin. The Bathroom was also small. Shower had a curtain instead of doors. The floor would get a little wet when showering, but nothing more than we expected. We had adequate room in the closets, could have used more drawer space.

On entering the stateroom I saw no bed for our son, so made a trip to guest services who reassured me there was a bed. In the evening it was lowered from the ceiling. Wish I had known that, so could un-pack without stress.
Our room opened facing a lobby, so felt we had little privacy.
The beds were comfortable. A curtain would have shielded the light in my son's eyes when we went to bed later than him.
Good storage space. The shower penetrated the flimsy curtain every time we showered, resulting in a soaked bathroom floor. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was very nice, beds were comfortable. We experienced noise late evening until about midnight above us....I think it was the outside deck but it could have been the dining room setting up for breakfast...usually was quiet by 12a.m. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was nice for what it was, basically a place to sleep, shower, and change clothes. Bed was comfortable. Location was very convenient. My only complaint (and its minor) is when the ship is docking, this room is right above the bow thrusters and they are quite loud. If you are a late sleeper, this may be an issue.

Overall the cabin is fine. The space was what I expected and storage was adequate. The luggage did not fit under the bed but we were able to put it in the closet. Wish there was a shower door and not a curtain that wouldn't stay in place. Read entire member review >>
If you ever take this cruise make sure that you don't choose cabin #3556. If you do you will not be able to sleep well. The beds were like sleeping on "rocks", then around 6:45 am you will experience a little earthquake in your room. Every time the ship is about to stop on a port, your room will shake like if you were in the middle of a small earthquake. Read entire member review >>
Smallish room, but adequate for our needs. It was very close to the R Bar which was very good for us, and also very bad. :) Surprisingly quiet considering how close we were to the lounge. The mattress, horrible. Everything you read about them is true. Had I thought ahead, I would have packed a mattress pad. No kidding. If you can fit it in your luggage, I highly recommend it.

We each had an outside view cabin on Deck 3 and it was excellent. Travelling as a single you have to pay more so the balcony cabin amounted to more than what we planned to spend. We were very happy with our window view cabin and our cabin attendant was excellent. We were more than satisfied with our choice. Read entire member review >>
Large oceanview stateroom on Vision of the Seas: great design, more-than-adequate storage space, extremely comfortable haven, except for the one problem I wrote about in the above review and will repeat here:
"There was only one big down side: our cabin was beneath the kitchen, and particularly a part of the kitchen where large metal objects were dragged, or rolled, or otherwise gotten from one place to another over the metal floor. This would occur sometimes at 2:00 in the morning, sometimes at 4:00 in the morning, sometimes as late as 7:00 in the morning. In other words, while we were trying to sleep. We were awakened from deep sleep over and over, every single day, by unbelievably loud, crashing, banging noises. We'll never again book a cabin under the kitchen, but Royal Caribbean ought to try and figure out a way to fix this problem." Read entire member review >>
Loved plenty of space in the restroom for toiletries. Didn't like that the cabin attendant opened eyeglass cases to put eyeglasses on those towel creatures - even after I put something on top, it was moved. I think the management should teach their employees - and this is the 2nd time I mention this in Vision's report. Read entire member review >>
Although restricted space, it had plenty of cupboard space and the bed was comfortable. The only problem was storage of cases. It would have been better to have storage under the bed because we had no room to put our hand luggage and then the space was more cluttered. Read entire member review >>
Too much noise from above - dining room. Sure wish the Vision had the sliding glass shower doors like Adventure & Freedom - don't care for the shower curtains! Lots of drawer and cupboard space - very efficient cabins, and loved the ocean view. Room Steward was awesome as were our Waiters! Read entire member review >>
