Unexpectedly good cruise experience

Its interesting to read other reviews of this cruise. Were we on the same ship? As a seasoned "Celebrity" cruiser, I was initially disappointed with the small size of the ship etc. However, I soon got to like it and enjoyed easily finding my way around. Our embarkation experience was amazing - probably due to timing. We did not get to the port until about 2pm and breezed on to the ship. Our cabin ...

This was my third cruise, and my first with Royal Caribbean. Our party consisted of 6 of us, a family trip of my wife and I, my parents, and my sister and brother in law. Overall, our experience was good to excellent, from wonderful excursions, above average service, entertainment which seemed to improve throughout the cruise, and activities which seemed to strike the fancy of the different ...

DW & I (late 50's) sailed RCL’s Vision of the Seas 4-day cruise, Port Everglades to Cozumel & back (2 sea days), over Memorial Day weekend 2014. I’ve never seen better cruising weather, 4 days of just blue skies, light winds & calm seas. Even the Captain commented on his last noon Bridge Advisory. What a great start: Embarkation was the easiest ever. We were at the terminal 10:30 a.m. & right up ...

I haven't seen many reviews by families with small children, so thought I might have something to add. I cruised with husband, my two daughters (ages 1 and 3), and my in laws. I had done quite a bit of research ahead of time, and Royal Caribbean was billed as a fairly family friendly cruise line, so we went with it. Embarkation was a breeze. We had done online check in, and when the RCCI ...

This was our second Royal Caribbean Cruise and the second time on Vision. We travelled on the same itinerary Thanksgiving 2007 but this was our first vacation alone since 1999! The cruise was to Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta. The destinations are secondary to us, we prefer sea days and look forward to doing a relocation cruise at some stage. Arrival and Embarkation Since we live ...

My family went on our first cruise this year on the Royal Caribbean's Vision of the Seas Mexican Riviera Christmas cruise. Our group consisted of myself, my wife and our three sons, ages 24, 22 & 9. Overall, I would say we are very satisfied with the trip. It was better than we thought it would be and we are very likely to partake in more cruises in the future. That's not to say that things were ...

Pre-cruise: We stayed at the Crowne Plaza in San Pedro for one night pre-cruise. The Crowne Plaza is about a 20-25 minute ride from the Long Beach airport, but the hotel doesn't offer an airport shuttle. However, we had reserved space on-line in advance for the four of us with Prime Time Shuttle service for $42 total. The shuttle was ready and waiting when we arrived! The Crowne Plaza ...

Stateroom: This was a major problem. We had a problem with the bathroom smelling like sewage. After a couple complaints they fixed the problem (took til day 4 to fix). On day 5 a pipe ruptured outside our cabin and flooded our room. They came into our room and ripped up all the carpet and flipped up the beds. They took all of our clothes and put them in a corner and piled all of the furniture on ...

We just returned from cruising on the Vision of the Seas to the Mexican Riviera. Our ports of call were Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan, and Puerto Vallarta. All in all, this was a very enjoyable vacation. There were a few high points, and also a few low points, but in total...a great time. We sailed out of Los Angeles. We flew in the day before and stayed overnight with relatives. Embarkation was a ...

Embarkation Security to get on the ship was a repeat of airline security. Make sure you have your ship pass & passport/drivers license(if applicable)in hand for instant viewing by security personnel. This also applies when departing the ship in port and even more stringently when returning from an off-ship activity. All hats, glasses etc must be removed for your pix to be snapped when you get back ...
