Review Summary

This ship gets a above average for the dining room food. The food on all ships have seemed to have gone down since the 80's and 90's, this cruises dining brought me back to those days. I usually go on two or three cruises a year and I do rate the dining room food on Vision to be on top.The Windjammer restaurant was less than on other Royal ships. The specialty restaurants are always great.

This ship had two ports of call. The Key West port is nice for everyone, and the Grand Cayman is

terrific for everyone. The ship also has better entertainment than most ships of the same size. It does not match ships like the Allure, but for the size the entertainment is above average. And last the children's area is very average.  They try to keep the children engaged but just don't have the setups that newer bigger ships have. Still the best on the seas is the newest Disney ships.

Happy sailing, RussHappy

No bells or whistles decent shape for a ship it's age.

Cabin / Stateroom

Cabin was clean. Did not see much of our steward though. That was unusual. They usually introduce themselves and offer services.

Ship Tip

You have to make it a point to spend a little extra and treat yourself to Chops and Giovanti's rstaurant

Ports Of Call

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida

You have to snorkel when you go to Grand cayman. The mot beautiful water and reefs on this side of the planet. The island is one of the nicest you will ever visit.
