Review summary

Originally booked on Freedom, which is much larger ship. After Freedom was cancelled, rebooked on the Vision. Disappointed in the size of the ship, as well as the limited number of dining options and activities.

Waited about 3 hrs into embarkation process. No line at all to get on the ship.

Motor coach was comfortable. Scenery and stops were nice. The tour guide (Discover Martinique) was hard to understand.

Castries, St. Lucia Did not visit port

St. Lucia turned the Vision away due to coronavirus concerns
