Our cruise was without a doubt a wonderful experience that we will LONG remember. We've already started getting ready for another one - we've always wanted to visit the British Isles, and now we think it might be good to do that by cruise!
Have fun! I will book directly through Royal Caribbean next time. I think the only benefit was that I could book it with no deposit, but that wound up costing $200 more than what I would have paid if booking directly through the cruise line. I can’t really see where it was worth paying that much more. We had a great time on the cruise and would happily do the same cruise again.
The cruise was good. Very similar to the Carnival except they had less venues and no basketball/volleyball court. Its bizarre how its almost identical. Booking via , they were suppose to give me onboard but that never came through even after I asked about it
Overall it was a Great Relaxing experience. I noticed going with a group of people can make the experience even funner. Next cruise I plan to take one to Alaska , heard great things about the ice berg views
I would recommend this cruise to anyone local who wants a quick get away. We enjoyed just getting out of town and the weather was great. The captain was really nice and he and the team seemed to be a very good group in terms of morale and energy.
The cruise was a wonderful experience. I did not get into it at first because I tend to be a wide open spaces kind of traveler and being crammed into all these tight hallways, stairways, and rooms was a bit to get past at first, but I did begin to enjoy it after the first day!
This was the rockiest ship, one woman even fell over as the ship rocked and had to be rushed medical because her nose was bloody. I overheard people saying that the stabilizers were broken and were supposed to be fixed before we set sail. The rocking motion of the ship By far put a ruin on the experience. The last 2 nights afyer leaving Cozumel were the worst.
I enjoyed this cruise from Galveston Texas. The staff onboard Vision of the Seas was friendly, helpful, and went the extra mile. It was my first Royal Caribbean but not my last one. This short trip was just enough to relax, unwind, and detox from work! I highly recommend it.
Was a great little ship. Royal Caribbean does a very good job and I would highly recommend this cruise. There crew and passengers were all very friendly. This was it's maiden voyage from Galveston so there were a few hiccups, but nothing major. All in all, a great cruise.
Cruise Director Steve and Captain were excellent. Food layout in Windjammer buffet was awkward. Main part of buffet on each side of ship had 2 sides. Some of the food was found on both sides and some was only on one side. To see everything offered, you had to go down the lines on both sides. Also there was no grill for burger and hot dogs. They were prepared and offered already cooked in warming pans. Pizza was not worth the calories. Fruit pies had more cake-like substance in them than fruit. Dining room portions were very appropriate. Bread was outstanding.
Repositioning cruise was very enjoyable. Cruise director Steve and captain were excellent. Both interacted well with passengers. Windjammer buffet setup was awkward as the main part hard 2 sides. Some items were on both sides but others were not. To see everything offered we had to tour both sides and the other food areas before picking up anything for breakfast and lunch. Fruit pies had very little fruit and were mostly filled with a cake-like substance. Dining room food and service were very good. Portions in dining room were just right. Bread was so good.
