Ship: Vision of the Seas | Sail Date:

We loved the ambiance!  The crew staff were wonderful,  enthusiastic and

very helpful.  The dining staff were awesome..Table 65 with Nemanja & Maribel 

and another table with Mohammed & another gentleman.  They could not have

been more accommodating and pleasant.  The food in the dining room Aquarious was delicious!  The stateroom was very nice and our housekeeper Deswin was great.    One thing  however that we feel we would have wanted more of is free time on the excursions to have a sit down Grecian meal.  Although we tasted snack foods, we wanted enough time to enjoy an authentic Greek dish.  Otherwise we  would  recommend this cruise!

Ship: Vision of the Seas | Sail Date:

The Vision of the Seas is a relatively small ship, but the crew was very nice. The ports of call were good. Being that it was the end of the season, not everything was open for as long as we would have liked, but we could still do 85% of the stuff we wanted to at each port of call.

Relaxing

Ship: Vision of the Seas | Sail Date:

A very relaxing cruise with not the most exciting destinations but still worth while.  Venice and Athens were great but unfortunately bad weather prevented us from getting into Kotor.  Argostoli was an unexpected gem.  The service onboard was excellent and the entertainment pretty good.  The food was not quite as good as usual.

Ship: Vision of the Seas | Sail Date:

We enjoyed all the ports of call, particularly Dubrovnik which was a real surprise - a gorgeous place, our photo's don't do it justice.

The ship was a nice size - we usually go on the larger ships but it was so much easier and quicker to get where we needed to go.

Staff were friendly and helpful as usual - we always find this with RC.

Shows were not as good as on the bigger ships but that was fine.  We particularly enjoyed the daily quizzes !

Siobhan had included private transfers which was absolutely fantastic - I would definitely ask for that option again - so much less stressful than waiting for the coach transfer.  Brilliant, thankyou.

Ship: Vision of the Seas | Sail Date:

Everything was great.

I was just " mad" at 2 issues.

1. "Crazy" prices on alcoholic drinks. ( Outrageous)

2. The involvement, of me as a passenger, in salary

Of the : water,assistent water, etc.

It's simply, not fair !!!

It would have been nice if there were other music venues in the lounges other than elevator music.  We could tell that money was trying to be saved on the preparation of the foods. The specialty restaurants had excellent food and service.

Ship: Vision of the Seas | Sail Date:

Vision of the Seas is a good ship with a pleasant and happy team of staff led by the equally pleasant Captain Marek. However, you get what you pay for. The food is good but not excellent. Likewise the entertainment and overall feel of the ship. I paid Holiday Inn prices and as such I was more than satisfied with what I got. The all-you-can-eat (and believe me there are several heaving examples of people with food piled high) dining room, The Windjammer, is the predictable buffet quality of food. The main dinning room, The Aquarius, is better (as it should be) but is often a little disappointing in terms of the taste of the food. The presentation, however, is rather good and the service excellent. If they have the Breaded prawns on your cruise definitely order two portions...they were delicious! In terms of entertainment it lacks a bit of creativity or passion. Yes the entertainment team is very good and they are very energetic but the serve up the usual cheezey cruise ship type of activities without putting much further thought into it. Inparticular I think an opportunity was lost in not screening movies the night before a port of call where the movie was either filmed there or was somehow related to the next days shore stop (i.e.: Captain Corelli's Mandolin the night before getting to Argostoli or Shirley Valentine before Myconos.) Something like that being added to the entertainment programme would have really added to my enjoyment of the cruise as I am not a sing and dance / exercise / gambling type person. Other than that Vision of the Seas is a very good middle of the road cruise and represents fairly good value for money.

take your own bags when checking out if you can. faster disembarkation

Using the Express (carrying your own bags) disembarkation really saved time leaving the ship early in the morning.

We carried our own bags off. So much faster during disembarkation.
