Review summary

My favorite part besides spending four days in Amsterdam before the ship left port, was travelling to all the different countries.  My favourites were Skagen, Denmark, Tallinn, Estonia and St Petersburg, Russia.

We booked our tours with Victor Tour company for most countries except Russia and paid in Cdn funds which made it easier and cheaper.


Vision of the Seas is an older ship and needs some refurbishing but the staff and crew were wonderful, very friendly and pleasant.  The food choices in the dining room could have been better but overall, it was satisfactory. The shows were very good as usual for RCL (in our experience).

The village is close enough to the pier to walk. You'll be glad you did. It's a beautiful fishing village.
