Vision of the Seas

May 2013 - Vision of the Seas to Europe - Northern Europe

Great Views of the Fjords; Cruise itself was average.

This cruise went to the Norwegian Fjords. Enjoyed cruising the fiords, views were spectacular. We went early May, so there were dozens of waterfalls from the snow melt in each fjord. We chose to do only one excursion. We took the railroad in Flam. In each of the other ports of call, we hiked and walked around the towns. None of the excursions really appealed to us and were very pricey. The ship itself seemed to be in good shape. We enjoyed the size of the ship (not too many people). Cabin service was excellent. Entertainment consisted of the ship’s production troupe and professional entertainers. The production troupe numbers were so so and the professional entertainers were pretty good. We have taken a cruise the last three years (2 transatlantic), and this cruise doesn’t even compare to those in terms of entertainment. Our biggest disappointment was in food and dining. We requested and were assigned to a table of eight. We also requested English speaking. On the second night a family of 6 Ukrainians was assigned to our table. That now made it 9 sitting at a table designed for 8. There were several instances when the wait staff could not make it by our table because of the over-crowding. The family was very nice, however, only spoke limited English. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary during this cruise. On previous cruises, RC provided a bottle of wine for our anniversary. This time were given an extra desert and a song. We had already ordered desert as part of our dinner and if we wanted an extra desert, we could have ordered it. We thought this was a little cheap on RC’s part. The food in the dining room was just average. Shrimp cocktail was partially frozen. French onion soup had no crouton or cheese. There was no “lobster night” like we have experienced on other cruises. We could purchase lobster any night for $35.00. Many nights the menu offerings were nothing to get excited about. None of the food was memorable. Our assistant waiter seemed to be in training. On our previous cruises, the asst. waiter helped clear off the table, kept our water glasses full, remembered the type of bread we liked and what kind of coffee we liked at the end of our meal. On this cruise, none of that happened. Very disappointing!

Adventure of the Seas

April 2012 - Adventure of the Seas to Europe - Western Europe

Nice Cruise..New Friends

First of all, we had a great time on this cruise. Plenty of things to do everyday and night. The Ports of Call were great. We took excursions at each one and were very pleased. We couldn't have asked for better dinner tablemates. Every evening was filled with lots of stories and laughs. We made new friends that we will definitely stay in touch with.
