7 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 19, 2015
Ship: Vision of the Seas
Cabin Type: Suite
Cabin Number: 8084
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 2 years ago

This was the worst cruise I have ever taken. The food was like fast food with no thing hot or worth eating. Deserts were lackluster calories.

The ship's  ( stripes) crew were more interested in themselves than the clients with little regard for how loud they were or obnoxious. The ship only has one outdoor pool deck and the overwhelming noise from the loud speakers made it impossible to talk to the person next to you or to enjoy. The mattress was at least 20 years old and was like sleeping on a lumpy old couch.

Refrigerator in room  didn't keep drinks cold only slightly cool. Entertainment was very disappointing and the cost was outrageous for the service we received. Celebrity pricing for a Carnival quality. RUN RUN Away!!!  Only thing that saved the trip was family time and the port of calls

who wants to see the upper management try to dance with professionals what a waste. The cruise director was more interested in trying to have the ship managers part of the shows.

The Cabin Stewart was good for what he could help with but the TV in room broke 2 times toilet was backed up due to plumbing issues in 3 of our rooms

don't spend money on the Junior Suite . not worth the price

Ship Tip

I will never sail on a ship like this ever again especially during holidays. The price for the cruise was high the quality was Lackluster!! Royal Caribbean has really gone down in quality in food, entertainment, and on making cruising a enjoyable experience.
