15 Night Western Europe Southbound (Stockholm To Istanbul) Sail Date: September 01, 2011 Ship: Vision of the Seas Cabin Type: Suite Traveled As: Couple Reviewed: 5 years ago
We recently returned from a 15 day European tour on RCL's Vision of the Seas. The ship had been refurbished only 7 months ago and it was beautiful! offered an inexpensive suite upgrade, so we took advantage of the deal and were upgraded to a grand suite. All I can say is FABULOUS! We had a party for 17 people in our suite and everyone had a place to sit and enjoy a good time.
The ports of call itinerary was superb. We thoroughly enjoyed each excursion. RCL was well organized which made the logistics of moving several hundred people through each port easy.
Only negative comment concerns the food. The meats were tough and fish dishes appeared to be frozen fish stick quality.

Food options were good, but the quality of the meat and fish entrees was poor.

Service and Staff
5 out of 5
We had a concierge on the Suite level floor who was superb. Always helpful. Only person that we encountered that was not helpful was the maitre D in the dining room.
Did not expect this port to be as good as it was. Loved the city. Our tour of the Galecian vineyards was cancelled since the harvest was early. We walked the town of Vigo on our own. It was easy to find our way around.

We toured on our own instead of taking the RCL sponsored tour. I would highly recommend as it gave us enough time to see the sites we wanted to see. However, I would not recommend walking the city unless you are in very good physical condition.
