We have cruised on Navigator\, Enchantment\, and now Vision of the Seas. We loved Enchantment which is the sister ship to Vision (but Enchantment has been updated and lengthened). The attitude and work ethic of the crew is markedly different from the other ships. There is clearly a lack of staff in the needed places such as the pool\, pool bar\, and guest services and an overall \"oh well' attitude with the majority of the crew. The ship may be OK for a 3 day cruise but for 4 days and longer you simply run out of things to do and parts of the ship to see. We got off and they were getting ready to go on a 7 day cruise and we cannot imagine what you would do on this boat for 7 days\, even if you had a different port of cal each and every day. In short\, we will stay with Royal Caribbean which we love\, but never go back on Vision. We would also never go on another cruise with this Captain/Management Team.
