Vision of the Seas

June 2014 - Vision of the Seas to Bermuda

Bermuda Bahama were great -Cruise Entertainment OK

First, all should know that the food service personnel were attentive, most were very helpful and assist fully.* The Room Staff were very good and well trained. *The band was very professional  and show dancers very energetic and colorful.* Ports were all very good and the ship in good condition, clean and well laidout.* "Less than expected" were the main lead dancers, lead singers and Asst Cruise Director who did not meet prior RCL standards.* Boogie Wonderland Show was flat due to lead singers not projecting - Broadway Show was nice (only) with no standing ovations offered by the audience.- Something was off center for these shows * "Frankie Vallie" singers were especially good as were the comedian and "Air Show" * Dining Room food was very good * Buffet was uninspired and had a feeling of sameness.*  Viking Vista Lounge limited to "Diamond Level" only - until 8:30 PM after sunsets! Overall, we enjoyed the ship, ports and the staff onboard! And, we enjoyed.

Oasis of the Seas

August 2013 - Oasis of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern

Oasis in Late August

Enjoyed the overall cruise. *Disappointed in St. Thomas as a shopping port. Not as clean nor colorful in Charlotte Amalie. Now just another Caribbean port - they are not keeping up the downtown area. Beaches are still naturally beautiful. *Ship offers loads to do - necessary to make advance reservations for shows and re$taurant$+. *Mytime dining tablemates never the same due to other competing restaurants so social interaction does not develop easily. Show times and premium dining reservations redirect schedules and alter the daily dining schedule. *Giovanni's was very good -dining outside in Central Park. * Great for multi-generational family gatherings as ship offers many neighborhoods, parades and different activities. * Lots of children at this time of year and travelers from different nations are represented as the ship is an attraction in itself. * Oasis of the seas is fascinating engineering and will satisfy those looking for an extra - the Royal Promenade - a mall- at- sea, a shoppers delight ! The music at the Globe Bar was very good in the evenings.

CruiseDen's Tips

Vision of the Seas Vision of the Seas - 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!
Nassau, Bahamas - 4 1/2 hour stop - brief - Senior Frog is close -Atlantis is easily accessible too.
Oasis of the Seas Oasis of the Seas - Go early to the Windjammer on port days - hard to get a seat - Look around buffets early as there may be more around the corner - it is quite extensive with different offerings.
