Vision of the Seas
7 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 06, 2014
Ship: Vision of the Seas
Cabin Type: Suite
Cabin Number: 8538
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago

Boarding was somewhat chaotic, apparently due to a late arrival and we did not get our luggage until after dinner. The maitre 'd very obligingly accepted our request for a special table. The "junior suite" was nicely set up and a regular balcony cabin should be of this comfortable size. Excellent cabin steward and room service. Very good food, although the dining room carpet wasn't the cleanest, and our serving team was responsible for more tables than on past cruises. The luncheon buffet was always excellent. We discovered a superb pianist named Raul who played in the Windjammer Lounge and should be a featured concert pianist. We had been to all of the ports on previous cruises, so stayed on the ship the whole time and thoroughly enjoyed having it "to ourselves".
