Vision of the Seas Cruise Review
I would just like to say
that overall we had a great cruise – the ship was beautiful, the staff were
friendly, the food was enjoyable and it didn’t hurt that the weather was sunny,
sunny, sunny as well.
It seemed to be kept very clean, and I enjoyed the décor. Not over the top or too many vibrant neon colors like some ships. We found a few quiet places to get a way from everyone such as Deck 5.
We had a stateroom with a balcony on Deck 7 which was a nice size, and we used the balcony often in late afternoons when we had enough of the sundeck. One morning we bought specialty coffees and enjoyed the sunrise with our coffee and beautiful pastries (the pastries at Latitudes are spectacular and are complimentary if you buy a special coffee).
Our stateroom attendant Richard was great and helped to make our cruise so enjoyable.
We didn’t spend a lot of time in the outdoor pool as it was usually busy, but we did use the outdoor deck to get some sunshine and enjoy the poolside atmosphere. We just went to swim in the solarium when we needed to cool off.
They opened the solarium roof when we were in port one day, so it was nice to enjoy the adult pool and the sunshine at the same time.
We ate breakfast at the Windjammer most mornings, and because we are early risers didn’t face any crowds or line-ups. There was lots of selection and no problem with having something different every day.
We sat at a fun table with some new friends which makes a difference, and we all enjoyed the food immensely. The wait staff were so friendly and attentive that I miss them already.
We had excursions booked in Cabo and Puerto Vallarta, and both were well organized and lots of fun.
I’d recommend this cruise to both couples and families.
