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.

Good But Not Great

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

The Vision of the Seas was ok, it had been updated but there was not as much to do on board as I would have liked.  Our service from the dining rooms to our stateroom was excellent. Everyone on board was very friendly and accommodating. The food was not as good as we had on our last cruise with Royal Caribbean.  One major negative was the smoking areas on board, the casino was so smoke filled most of the time we did not even spend any time there. Maybe that is not an issue for most people but being from a nonsmoking family and from a state that prohibits smoking in public places I was a bit surprised how many times I was bothered by smoke.  The musical performances were "cheesy" at best.  Our last cruise was on the Jewel of the Seas with is slightly bigger and I did not have an issue with motion, the water did not appear to be unusually rough but you could feel a lot of movement throughout the ship especially the higher up you would go. We had heard from several others that they too thought that the ride was rather rough.  Finally, the destinations were great, we booked all of our excursions on our own and they worked out perfectly.  We were picked up on time and returned to port in plenty of time to make the ship. By not booking through the ship we  saved quite a bit of money. The only other major negative was the disembarking, we were 45 minutes late, and it was very unorganized.  Overall we had a great time because of the group we were with, but if you are looking for a boat with a lot of bells and whistles you may want to look elsewhere.

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.

Just OK

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

The staff was awesome. Very Friendly and courteous. The ship was just OK. I traveled with my family and during the days at sea there was not much to do  for them. The one pool that they could use was crowded and all of the competitions that were held onboard were adults only and most of the time they closed the that pool down during them. They had another pool on the ship but it was adult only and it seemed to draw the much older crowd (less then half full most of the time).The food had a lot to be desired. We ended up paying to eat at one of the specialty restaurants twice because the other selections were minimal and not all that anyway. Honestly not sure if I would cruise Royal Caribbean again. I have sailed on Carnival several times and have yet to have a bad experience with them. I think I will be sticking to Carnival from here on out especially if I am with the family.

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.
