vision of the seas BCN

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Vision of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 26, 2015

First of all our cabin person Made was superb, he ensured that everything was clean, neat and in place; he always asked if everything was fine and immediately remembered our names.  We appreciate Made.  Cabin 3032

Our table waiters were fantastic!  Rolland was excellent and always available, Gabriel as well.  Absolutely NO complains, just praise for these excellent people and all the personnel at the cruise line.

We booked three (3) land tours, one was cancelled and refunded promptly since we were unable to dock in Villefranche.  However, I paid extra because I was informed that booking at the boat costs more than if I would have done that through internet.  This is not a good policy and I never heard or read about this. 

The land tour to visit Corsica Ajaccio was $53.75, and I paid $161.25 for the three of us.  I noticed that the tour at the city, which is walking distance where the boat docked, is only 10 euros.  I understand that the RCCL has to make some money on tours, but approximately $40.00 per person more is too much and the tour was nothing to rave about.  It did not include an inside visit to any site and again, it was exactly as the one that was offered at the city.  I seriously suggest that this is reviewed and maybe lowered or eliminated.  We are not happy paying so much more really!  

We noticed the quality of certain items are either eliminated or the quality is not as good as years ago, but this is going on just about everywhere and overall, the service is very good.

ENJOYABLE BUT DOMEWHAT DISAPPOINTING

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Vision of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 11, 2015

Food quality and variety very disappointing.  Was told I'd find food superior on Royal Caribbean as compared to Carnival.   Not so on this cruise. 

Shows were very good as well as onboard bands.

Booked "large" ocean view cabin and found it way too small.

buffet needs reform, but amazing cruise.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Vision of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 11, 2015

The food needs to be labeled "vegetarian" properly. This cruise had "vegetarian meatballs" that were meat meatballs. "Vegetarian chicken" that was actually chicken with vegetables. Along with lots of "vegetarian" food that contained oyster sauce or seafood. Aside from that....key west, Madeira. Malaga and Barcelona were all amazing ports. Highly recommended!

RC has been much better,lost some of its luster

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Vision of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 11, 2015

The check -in in Tampa was not very pleasant and very, very slow!

Food lower in quality, menue differed from reality, shows were low grade.

Positive: friendly personnel, clean, but very small cabin, service over all OK

Internet much to slow even in port! maybe it is only a money making machine.

Best vacation ever!!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Vision of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 28, 2015

This was our first cruise and weren't sure how we would like it.  We had the best time ever.   Royal Caribbean treated us like royalty.   Everyone we came in contact with from our stateroom attendant to our waiter, treated us like we were somebody important.  We cruised with friends and we all had the same thought, we are going to do this again.  We had so much fun with the excursions and  other activities on the ship, we were busy from the time we got up in the morning until the time we went to bed.  The food was also excellent, we loved dining every night in the dining room and also got to know our wait staff because we had the same ones every night.  They were so much fun!   The food on the buffet was also very good, anytime of the day if you were hungry you could count on the buffet to satisfy your hunger.   Can't wait til our next cruise!

Small ship, tiny pool, not much activities

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Vision of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 28, 2015

Service varies. Outstanding services from Edward (deck 4 bar), Ursula and Nancy (waitresses at deck 4 dining), Carlene (deck 4 housekeeping). Some others are very cold and not welcoming.

you can take it if the "price is right" there are better ships. However, the service was good and personnel very attentive. We had, as diamond+ members, at the same day 2 deliveries of food to the cabin, why can't that be on different days? Same goes for invitations - 2 in one day!

The ports that you stop at are mostly about shopping unless you have booked an excursion. There are lots of people selling the same excursions off the boat. We used the dive shop right at the pier to go snorkeling and had a great time with great snorkeling

Go for the specific settings for dinner---these seemed to work better.
