after 37 cruises this was the worst ship I have ever been on

The ports was very good but the ship was the worst I've ever been on. Most of the staff was rude like the had no customer service experience. My daughter fell while dancing with the cruise director and staff and not one of them came to see if she was okay or anything. This young man that worked in the bar storage area came to assist us and since he could not get anyone on the phone He went down stairs to get a wheel chair to get her to the doctor. The ship is very old and was not that clean as I am accustom to with exception of our cabin linen. The food was not good and in the windjammer restaurant the menu changed very little. I was very disappointed with Royal Caribbean.

Dubai & Oman cruise.

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

The nightly dancing entertainment at the Centrum was great.  The band was very good.  The shows were not bad either.  Dinning room and House keeping services were great.

 

Only complain was the lack of respect for other races on the list.  As long as the cruise ship has even one other races on board, on a special day like New Year to their customs, it should be mentioned and showed respect.  Everybody likes to be acknowledged especially on an important day like that.  The cruise director lack of knowledge on this was shameful indeed.    We Asians tend to be more  polite and keep quiet about it.  But deep down we really felt insulted.

 

Anyway, something for the cruise directors on all ships to learn that all the customers are important to their business.  They should mention them even when they ask where everybody comes from.  Lately I have seen more and more Chinese, Indians, Koreans and other Asians on the cruise ships, they are not invisible really.

 

Thanks for taking this for me to let out my steam.  Have a nice day.

Grecian Holiday

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

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!

Good Cruise!

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

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

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.

Vision of the Seas Eastern Med October 2016

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

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.

Happy

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