This ship was great for its age and it does need to go to dry dock, but I really liked all teh public areas and deck space. These new mega-liners cut down on pools and deck space.. Vision rates an A for this. BUT.... who is buying their food? It is low quality and even the waiter admitted that they use frozen fish! How could Salmon in NJ taste better than in Norway?? Also, no more lobster or filet mognon on the dining menu; you must pay extra if you want it, They are really cutting corners. This was the poorest gala midnight buffet I have ever seen.
