Vision of the Seas
5 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 12, 2014
Ship: Vision of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 2116
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 3 years ago

Food: MDR we thought was very good and My Time is way to go but be sure to clarify reservation times. If you want to sit as a family you can but be sure to arrange that. Windjammer is college dorm cafeteria- don't expect the finest but rather a basic buffet that serves its purpose. Food in Solarium is light and good but limited hours. 

Deck: Main pool is small and crowded. Indoor pool was crowded too. Top deck (10) is best place for sea days. Nice breeze and view.

Bar Service: Can't fault the effort of the crew, they work hard and will take care of you but understaffed. Hours of operation vary but if you like quiet the Viking Crown is a great escape. 

Ports: Key West is nice and it is easy on and off the ship and a variety of things to do. Grand Cayman is an awesome beach! If that is what you like cabs are right there and $4/person takes you there. We decided a late breakfast and missed the crowds and lines and got right on a tender. 

Rooms: Excellent, great service

Overall: This ship is adult oriented and we liked that. Entertainment was good. 

Suggestions: Cab from cruise port to airport is a rip off.
