Vision of the Seas
7 Night Southern Caribbean (Colon Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 15, 2014
Ship: Vision of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 7618
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 4 years ago

As usual, the staff and ship (RCCL Vision of the Seas) were outstanding.  Leaving from Colon, Panama, however, was not.  Have to fly into Panama City at least the day before.  50 miles to Colon.  Not impressed with either Panama City or Colon.  Just not my cup of tea.  Of the 2100+ passengers, only 300 or so were English as their primary language.  All of the staff spoke English.  But, a vast majority of the passengers were at best, inconsiderate, sometimes rude.  Ports of call, Cartegena, Columbia (Would not go back), Curacao (Nice), Aruba (great), and Bonaire (great).  My next cruise will leave from a US port and most likely will be Royal Caribbean.
