Delightful 7 days of pampering

Sail Date: July 09, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Oceanview

It was very pleasant to be pampered. It was a great way to be with a diverse group of couples and adult children. There were activities and places for all of us.

Pros: Being pampered

Cons: Hidden costs

Recommends Vision of the Seas? Yes!

None of the show options were appealing at all. Fortunately we were traveling as a group and entertained our selves. The card room lacked even an English Scrabble board and the Spanish one was incomplete.
Ship Quality
It was clean and accessible. When the weather was cold and raining indoor spaces were a little crowded.
Food and Dining
The range of food was excellent. However, the quality of food for the dinners was only average. Lunches in the dining room were much better. Dining times were not convenient. Seatings were 6 or 8:45, neither of which suited us well. Our waiter was SUPERB. He was attentive and entertaining.
Cabin / Stateroom
Despite 4 of us in one stateroom, there was enough storage and movement space. That was a delightful surprise.
Service and Staff
Very friendly.
Helsinki, Finland
It was raining which I am sure diminished the pleasure.
Don't Miss: The Rock Church
St. Petersburg, Russian Federation
Despite a long day, tour by Denrus, it was spectacular. It warranted a 2 day stay in port. The tour was excellent but it would have been nice to be able to wander independently a little.
Don't Miss: The Hermitage with a good guide since the size of the collection is overwhelming.
Copenhagen, Denmark
Somewhat disappointing. It was a large city and not as clean or as easily walkable as we expected.
Riga, Latvia
It was a pleasant little city but not one I would choose to visit or visit again.
Don't Miss: Tower that includes the military museum.
