14 Night Transatlantic Eastbound (Tampa To Barcelona)
Sail Date: April 16, 2016
Ship: Vision of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 2110
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

The forward cabins at the lowest level (2000) are over some of the ship's machinery, including the trash compacter, and they loudly dump glass bottles and run the trash compactor machinery during the hours of 12 midnight to 6 AM--terrible awakening noise.  I complained twice, at 2:30 AM to Isadora at the service desk and then another time called security at 4:30 AM.  They came to the cabin and said they would go down & tell them to stop.  Nothing happened.

Food was good and entertainment GREAT but we were half asleep a lot of the time.

Get a cabin in the mid-ship area or on level 3--avoid the front of the ship on the lower level.
