Critique of Vision of the Seas cruise

Sail Date: November 22, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

Boarding at Tampa was poorly organized, no communication to those waiting in line.  Disembarking at Tampa was also bad for the same reason.  Just better communication would help.  Delays sometimes can not be avoided but better communication goes a long way.

Food was mediocre except at the upscale Italian restaurant and Chinese restaurant which were great.

Room service with Pat was exceptional - best part of the trip.  She knew all of our names by the second day and greeted us at every opportunity.

The ship itself was pretty and had a lot of options as far as activities.


Ship Quality
All rooms were nicely decorated and everything was clean and tidy.
Food and Dining
Expected better food. Lots of repetition as far as menu. Upscale restaurants were excellent.
Service and Staff
There were outstanding staff (Pat) and mostly OK staff
The entertainment was mostly OK. The theaters screen resolution could be better. There was a comedy act with a man (Record) who sang and told jokes. He was fabulous.
Children's Programs
The kids were kept busy and entertained.
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions
Think we missed the best port (Georgetown). Belize City was depressing. Should have planned more excursions.
Cabin / Stateroom
Small. But not used to cruise ship. It was neat, clean and modern looking but small and noisy (squeaking),


Food was just mediocre. Would have eaten at the upscale restaurants each night if we could afford it.
