this was our first cruise so we have nothing to compare but we were pleasantly surprised at how much we enjoyed the Vision of the Seas western Caribbean cruise in December 2014.  The food was great, staff very friendly and helpful, and the shore excursions were all more than we expected.   We were also happy with all of the entertainment options on board as we were never bored or at a loss for things to do or see.  All in all it was a great experience and we will very likely cruise again in the near future!

Ship Quality
clean and neat
Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
shower on the small side but was workable
Service and Staff
couldn't be any better
Children's Programs
we didn't have children with us and did not seek out children's programs
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions area maps or handouts beyond the shopping areas would be very helpful; shopping is easy enough to find with or without a map
Tampa, Florida
lines to get on the ship were way too long, slow moving and port staff were not very friendly or helpful; a few more signs would be very helpful for anyone visiting the port for the first time
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
glass bottom boat was very good
Belize City, Belize
very nice; mayan ruins were well worth the time and money to visit
Cozumel, Mexico
way too commercial, too many vendors trying to drag you into their shops, needee a good map ot the entire area not just the stores
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
very nice shopping area (best of the cruise) mayan ruins with guide were excellent


we were on deck 2 so it was very convenient to get off and on the ship for shore excursions; that being said it also put us several decks below the dining and recreational areas but there were plenty of elevators and stairways so it was not a problem to get where we wanted to be
