Vision of the Seas

July 2017 - Vision of the Seas to Europe - Northern Europe

Fantastic Cruise!

The cruise was terrific. One of my favorites so far (I have been on 6). The ports were all wonderful (except for Helsinki, could have skipped that one).

Celebrity Summit

October 2015 - Celebrity Summit to Caribbean - Eastern

Enjoyable trip

The ship is a mid-sized ship.  Kept very clean and the service was excellent.  I just didn't find that the entertainment was that great.  Out of six shows, one was outstanding, two were pretty good and the others were simply something to do for the evening.  Dinner in the Cosmopolitan dining room was okay.  The wait staff was excellent and willing to go the extra mile, however, the food was adequate but nothing memorable.  There is always a standard salmon, chicken and steak on the menu which I actually found more tasty than the daily specials.  I didn't try the restaurants that charge a fee, although I did hear rave reviews about those.  Obviously, they save all the best for the fee restaurants and just average food in the all-inclusive.  In addition, unless you are a heavy drinker, don't bother with the drink package.  It gets very expensive (about $77 per day).  So unless you think you're going to drink that much, it's just not worth the expense.  As far as the excursions go, if you go to Tortola, I'd highly recommend the excursion to Virgin Gorda.  The beach there is amazing and if you choose to do the one that walks to The Baths, make sure you have water shoes or some type of rubber soled shoes to climb over the rocks.  Overall, I had a good time, although I must admit that Celebrity Summit would not be my first choice next time.

nkunen's Tips

St. Petersburg, Russian Federation - Wonderful! Did the 2 day excursion and visited Peterof, Hermitage, etc. It was great. We saw a lot and thoroughly enjoyed the museums and summer & winter palaces.
Copenhagen, Denmark - This was the final destination. Did a walking tour here and then stayed an extra 3 days. Copenhagen was great.
Vision of the Seas Vision of the Seas - Vision is a nice enough ship, although I do prefer the bigger ones. The staff is wonderful.
Helsinki, Finland - I really think we could have skipped this port. After seeing the beautiful churches, etc. in St. Petersburg, the Rock Church simply doesn't cut it. I would have preferred staying an extra day in another port.
Tallinn, Estonia - Estonia was beautiful. We had an excursion on this one. Really enjoyed the city.
Warnemunde (Berlin), Germany - I did the excursion to Berlin. While the visit to Berlin was good, it's too far to really be worthwhile. The traffic getting to Berlin was awful so we lost about 1 hour of visiting sites. Since the time was cut short, it was basically riding on the bus, getting off a few minutes, snapping some pictures and back on the bus. I do not feel that it was a worthwhile excursion. I would stay closer to the pier if I was to do this again.
Stockholm, Sweden - Beautiful city. Did an excursion and then had a little time to tour on our own. It would have been nice to spend a few more hours here.
Amsterdam, Netherlands - This port was great. I arrived two days early to enjoy the city but did not book an excursion.
