7 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 13, 2016
Ship: Vision of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 3126
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

We enjoyed the trip for the most part.  Very disappointed that the ship had to bypass Roatan for a medical problem with a passenger.   We had plans for Roatan and will probably not go back for awhile.  The Crew was great but constantly pushing you to buy the overpriced packages (Drink, photo...etc)  The drinks they were serving should not cost $13.  Its not like they ship was buying the ingredients for them from one of the islands.

Children's Programs

Did not bring Kids. This ship (Vision) did not look like a ship that was designed to have too may kids aboard. (Not a lot to do for them)

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Very Friendly. Was a bit put off by everyone trying to push the overpriced packages (Drink, photo, spa....etc) If they would lower the drink prices and photo prices they would probably make more money because more people would use it.

Cabin / Stateroom

The Cabin was what we expected. The 3rd floor was good with the larger window. We did not notice the rocking of the ship in the night. The room steward cleaned the room twice a day. He was like a Ninja.....we never caught him.

Ship Tip

I recommend flying in the day before the ship leaves. Made the departure day so much better.

The tram in Tampa is $5 all day. It was a good way to get around.

Did not make it....Ship bypassed it and we missed the chance to see it.

Friendly people. The people working at the shops were not as pushy as they were in Mexico. The reef snorkeling was amazing
5 out of 5
Not a lot to do. We took the shuttle to the beach and paid $10/ea for the beach chair, Umbrella, use of Kayak and snorkeling gear. They included the first 2 drinks for free.

Plan ahead.....pick a couple things to do since if there is a medical problem on the ship it will be rerouted to this port and you will spend more time than you expected here.
