RCCL Vision of the Seas

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Vision of the Seas | Sail Date: Jul 11, 2014


A very nice ship with excellent crew, service and amenities.Food was good but not excellent. Ship was very clean and the ports (Key West and Georgetown) are always fun.

The gratuities and drink prices were excessively high. It makes you have to consider the worth of cruising.

Relaxation and Fun!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Vision of the Seas | Sail Date: Jul 03, 2014


Lots to do! The cruise director planned lots of fun activities on the days at sea. My biggest complaint was that many events overlapped in scheduling which made for some hard decisions. Some venues filled up quickly and several events were cancelled. ( I think it was due to the World Cup Soccer tournament that seemed to dominate the ship.)

The spa experience was wonderful, although I didn't realize that spa services should ideally be booked before boarding. I had to settle for my second choice service.

The specialty dining experience was worth the additional cost. Giovanni's Table had delicious selections and attentive servers.

Our cabin was clean and comfortable. The cabin attendants were quick to respond to all requests. One question: Where were our towel animals?

Not up to par

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Vision of the Seas | Sail Date: Jul 03, 2014


The ship is well maintained and very clean.  The dining room service was very good.  However, we found the food in the main dining room to be bland and unappetizing,  especially a salmon dish.  The escardo  or snails had a off, fishy taste.  This was not in line with our  many prior cruises with RC.  The food was much better in the Windjammer Cafe.

The bar service at the pool bar and the casino was very poor.  Instead of attempting to serve in some order, service was provided to whoever presented in front of the server, leaving those of us on the fringe of the knot at the front of the bar waiting while others were served without a wait.  On three occasions, people flat out lied that they were next in line and were served while we could only complain.  This treatment is not acceptable.  To make matters worse, we did not see  servers circulating in the pool area, making a trip to the bar unavoidable and unpleasant.

Finally, our unassisted departure was to begin in the R bar deck 4.  The passengers  soon overflowed and was directed into a dining room where we interfered with the service, blocking pathways with our luggage.  We were not told why or how long we would wait.  After about 45 mins., we had to take the stairs to deck 1 to leave the ship.  Information and direction was lacking.

Great cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Vision of the Seas | Sail Date: Jul 03, 2014


Ocean view cabin with balcony was exceptional , great variety of food, entertainment and activities. Mixture of all ages on this cruise. Cleanliness was excellent in all areas with the exception of the public restrooms which wasn't terrible but could have been better. Staff was very friendly. I would recommend this cruise to a friend. In fact my family/ friends have already started to plan another cruise for 2015.

Excellent staff, old ship.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Vision of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 28, 2014


Too much time at sea. The ports of call were fine, Key West was the best. The facilities on the ship and stateroom were good to excellent. The age of the ship shows(1998), too much noise and vibration from the engine. The food and specialty restaurants were good but nothing special. The staff was excellent.

Very nice Ship, great service, nice entertainment schedule

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Vision of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 23, 2014


We did a 5 day on the Vision June 2014 from Ft Lauderdale. I was pleasantly surprised to find a lovely solarium and several alternative dining options on this smaller ship.  The staff overall, proved to be quite attentive and accommodating ( try to get Warren in the My Time Dining room as your server, he's amazing).

Royal Caribbean- NEVER again!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Vision of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 23, 2014


I have to start by saying our room attendant "Salvado" was wonderful, I hurt my ankle on the excursion, he made sure there was a bag of ice in my stateroom every evening afterwards.

 

The food was poor at best. The service in the dining areas, especially if you had oneof the pre-paid soda glasses was non- existent. The bartenders also, did not want to serve you with these glasses, because they are not collecting $$$$$$.

 

The main pool areas was always crowed with children, where as adults "40's" we would like a little more relaxing area, but not in the solarium where it was to hot to sit and enjoy.

 

When our Cozumel port was dropped due to what ever the RC reason was.... they are offering nothing back because we received the "day at sea", joy, joy!. I did not want to spend another day at sea, i would have rather been taken straight back to the port of call so I could actually enjoy myself

5 night western caribbean cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Vision of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 23, 2014


I thought the staff worked very hard to make this an enjoyable cruise. The entertainment was great, food was delicious and plentiful. The only disappointment we had was that we were not able to dock in Cozumel due to too strong currents per our captain, so we only stopped in one port. I don't know if I would choose this itinerary again (Roatan and Cozumel), but we enjoyed the ship.

40 Tips for Vision of the Seas

The adult pool was the gem of the ship.

Make the shows at night in the theatre!

Windjammer restaurant was great for breakfast and luch.

Go to the Park Cafe...and enjoy the ships excercise facilities.

Make sure you hit park cafe in the solarium for some yummy fresh snacks. And try Giovanni's restaurant for amazing Italian.

Avoid the casino deck due to the smoke! Don't forget to go to the fine dining for breakfast or lunch. We did not and in retrospect we should have. Next time we will

I would take this cruise again. The staff was great. I loved Gabriel, Namora and Bambang.

The Diamond Plus breakfast dining room was excellent!

go to the breakfast bar in the main dinning room. a great indoor pool

Junior suites are very comfortable, pool too small for the ship.

Don't go on this ship-small and older, although updated, still needs work.

If you are bringing kids avoid this one. Every family we met complained about lack of activities etc. for kids. Ours were 12 and 14 years old.

We preferred the windjammer for breakfast even though the main dining room was serving because we didnt have to wait, and we could still get made to order omelets and a large variety of food. We always ate in the main dining room for dinner though due to quality of food and great service.

Be early for the shows as there may be limited alternative activities in the evenings - except a greedy casino! Save your money and go buy an ice cream instead. The guest speaker providing educational speaker was really an asset for the cruisers!

Need to know in advance if you do not provide shampoo in state room. You can send email customers to inform that "you will need to bring your own shampoo".

If you are dining in the Main Dining Room, you may want to get there a little early for your reservation, they were having a problem with the seating at nearly every dinner.

Enjoyed the adult pool. quiet and food was good

Go to Windjammer they have a variety of food to suit everyones taste. The staff is friendly and courteous.

eating breakfast in the dining room is very nice switch from the rude seniors in the windjammer!!

Small ship made it easy to get around
