Verified Review
4 Night Short Break (Stockholm To Copenhagen)
Sail Date: August 07, 2009
Ship: Vision of the Seas
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 8 years ago

The ship was huge with every amenity one could expect or ask for. But many of the passengers were rather rude in the buffet food/dining areas. They would push and shove and cut in line to get food, even though it was a buffet. In addition, the cruise staff never hesitated to try to get passengers to pay for something or buy something extra. This got to be annoying at times when it was unclear if a certain amenity was required for purchase or not.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The food quality was fine... lots of fresh fruit and fresh food, but the ambiance was poor in the areas where the food was buffet style-- long lines and other passengers were extremely rude.

If the medieval festival had not being going on the day we went, the town would have been boring and small.
