Review of Vision of the Seas

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Vision of the Seas | Sail Date: Jan 10, 2015

Everything was great....service good. 

Travel agent outstanding -- very caring and helpful with all of our questions.

Only thing I would suggest to Royal Caribbean is have the photos available online after the cruise for purchase.

IT WAS THE LEAST LIKED OF ALL OF OUR CRUISES

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Vision of the Seas | Sail Date: Jan 10, 2015

We were not impressed with the food on the cruise.   There was not the variety as on other cruise lines.  There was only one little café to go to if you wanted a snack at night.  It had very little to pick from, and the items were not that fresh.  They served crumbs for chips.  I had been told when on the ship that there were no late night buffets because it was a waste.  I can understand that, but there should be something edible for people who want something to eat late at night.  The entertainment was very good most of the time.  We thought there was not enough activities like on other cruise lines.  The Cruise Director was very good, and we thoroughly enjoyed the times he was there.  Our room was clean but never vacuumed.  We had threads on the carpet and sparkles the entire week.  We went to the "shopping" seminar, and all they did was plug Diamonds International.  When we were in Cozumel, we were told to take a taxi to the "Forum" to shop for the best shopping; and all it was was Diamonds International and its associates.  We were so disappointed.  I do not think we will be going on Royal Caribbean in the near future.

Disappointing

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Vision of the Seas | Sail Date: Jan 10, 2015

Cabin was fine, but there was no shampoo, etc. Even a cheap hotel offers that, and I had not packed any since it's usually a standard amenity. Prices for the same drink were inconsistent from bar to bar and waiter to waiter. One evening I ordered a glass of "house wine" with dinner and was charged $17! Really? What would a glass of premium wine cost?!?! Sound systems were way too loud in some venues and barely audible in others. One afternoon trivia moderator barely spoke English so we not only had to guess the answer, we had to guess the question!

We will probably not use this cruise line again.

Nice Ship; Touristy Stops

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Vision of the Seas | Sail Date: Jan 10, 2015

We revisited several ports we've been to before...Cozumel, Roatan, and Belize. Each port has improved since our last visits. However, the port areas were very touristy and very actively trying to sell you souvenir type goods....same goods in each port.

We could not do any of the sports/adventure tours this time and those might have improved our port experiences. The tour of Roatan was interesting but showed the poverty of the area. The reef that encircles the island looked as if it would provide excellent, shallow water snorkeling or diving. We have been to the beach in Roatan before and it is lovely.

If you travel to Cozumel, leave the port area and taxi/walk to downtown. Eat at Pancho's Backyard and shop in their shop. Good food and nice products in their winding store.

The tender into Belize took about 20 minutes and we should have taken a tour of the city. Our friends did and found it quite interesting. A poor area divided from the wealthy area by a local river.

Our ship, Vision of the Seas, was comfortable, well staffed, clean, and fun. We went with a group of friends and met others on the ship. I recommend Royal Caribbean; this was our third cruise with RC.

Great experience on a smaller ship

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Vision of the Seas | Sail Date: Jan 10, 2015

We particularly liked the smaller ship.  It was nice to meet people more then once which usually is the case on the larger ships.  The Centrum was well designed and offered nice entertainment.  Dining room service was great and food was plentiful and well prepared.  We were disappointed that Royal Caribbean is no longer offering a discounted wine package.

My cruise experience

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Vision of the Seas | Sail Date: Jan 10, 2015

The loud PA systems at ALL events was too loud.We had to leave some areas because of it. That is the only thing that kept me from giving you the top rating.

Vision of the Seas January 10 review

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Vision of the Seas | Sail Date: Jan 10, 2015

We felt this cruise was the best.  Royal Caribbean made this cruise an enjoyable experience.  The evening meals with Rommel and Genere were 5 star.  They made us feel welcome and their service was excellent.  The evening shows were Broadway class.  We recommend this cruise.

Our trip

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Vision of the Seas | Sail Date: Jan 03, 2015

Entire cruise was almost perfect. The mattress in our state room was uncomfortable. The food was good but a long way away from our first cruise with your company. I also missed the midnight snacks.

Just another average cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Vision of the Seas | Sail Date: Dec 13, 2014

Check-in was quicker than most.

Rooms were average, clean but worn. Shower was tiny.    

Food was below par, desserts were really bad, most tasted like pre-packaged. 

Dining room staff were well above average, very friendly and helpful.

Entertainment was above par.

Shops were overpriced.

Ports of call and onboard activities were boring.

Casino was small and mostly one arm bandits, not enough black jack tables.

Check-out went smooth but took too long.

Great cruise.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Vision of the Seas | Sail Date: Dec 13, 2014

Overall, it was a great cruise.   The food and service was excellent.  Particularly in the main dining room.  The ship is a bit outdated and needs refurbishing.  This was our fourth cruise and this is the only ship that shows the wear-and-tear of constant service.  Also the entertainment was not up-to-par with other cruises.  One of our excursions, tubing is Belize, was cancelled on short notice.  Had to rebook on a similar excursion with a much larger group.  Because of the size of the group and timing the excursion was not able to cover the full itinerary.

Popular tips for Vision of the Seas.


casino was fun and you did not loose you money it afforded you to play for awhile before you lost...poker machines were the best to stretch your money..service no matter where you were was great and the people were friendly as well as efficient

Go to the dining room for breakfast--skip the buffet whenever possible.

Food much better in the dining room than at the buffet. Eat in dining room as much as possible.
