We went on Vision of the Seas for our honeymoon and had a great time! The places we visited were beautiful and we made many friends. The food and drinks all were great! Everyone who worked on the ship was wonderful!!! Happy


This cruise had a large Elvis impersonator crowd, so we felt like a lot of the events were geared toward these people. There were a couple nights events that we wanted to do were canceled, but we found other things to do. We were not able to go to Honduras because there was a medical emergency on the ship and we turned around. We were not upset about this, they were able to save a life! There was a small bathroom issue on the last day, so there was a slight smell and my husband had to throw shoes away after stepping in about an inch of pee. 


Overall- a wonderful experience and we will be cruising again in no time!

Cabin / Stateroom
George was amazing. He cleaned our cabin every time we left and brought us anything we needed. Really wonderful!
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
There were bathroom issues on the last night. This caused a strong smell and my husband stepped in pee and had to throw out his loafers.
Destinations and Excursions
Playa Mia was a disappointment. We thought there would be Wi-fi and we thought we would be able to go parasailing.

There was no wi-fi and we really wanted to check in with our families for the first time since getting on the ship.

We paid the extra fee to go parasailing and right before we were strapping in to be the next to go up in the air, the boat stopped, there was a strong odor of fire, and the couple that was up there fell into the sea because the boat died. They called in emergency vehicles to get the other couple, and told us we had to wait 30 minutes until we would be able to go up. We DID NOT want to go into the sky with that company! IT was very scary!!
Onboard Activities
some nights we could not find anything to do because there was a lot of Elvis events that were private.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Tampa, Florida
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
We didn't get there! :(
Belize City, Belize
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
VERY EXPENSIVE to eat or drink here. We split nachos, we split tacos, and had 2 cokes and the bill came to $69. The other restaurants looked very similar.
Cozumel, Mexico
We got to go here two times because of the medical emergency! We liked the port! :)
