A nice cruise, but heavily disappointed.

Sail Date: July 01, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

The ship was nice, but because it was smaller, did not have all of the activities that we are used to. We were VERY disappointed that the ship was unable to get to St. Petersburg, which was our primary reason for booking this cruise. We spent over $8000 on the cruise, flights, etc., for a vacation that did not get us to our intended location. Even though we received refunds on our excursions, and some tax refunds, I don't think this was enough. It would have been something entirely different to miss one of the other ports... but missing the primary port with no backup plan from Royal Caribbean to get us there on another day... and no other refunds was disappointing.

Pros: Great service at dinner.

Cons: Missed St. Petersburg... the primary port!

Recommends Vision of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
Ship was clean but is ready for some updates. Need wifi access in all rooms.
Food and Dining
Loved the service we received from Veronica\, Sandeep and Sandip at table 226 at the 6PM dining.
Cabin / Stateroom
Our room steward\, Raj\, was fantastic. Would like to see towel animals every day though... not just every other day.
Service and Staff
Was disappointed in the lack of activities overall... the fun activities were late at night and we missed them so we could rest up for the next day's excursions.
