We chose this cruise for the amazing itinerary. It was an advertised cruise through a local travel agency, and we had never used an agency before, nor had we cruised with this line before. We were happily surprised with the cleanliness of the Vision of the Seas, the pleasant crew members and the meals. The stateroom was quite adequate, however, there was no refrigerator, microwave or coffee pot - all of which we sorely missed. While the entertainment was not quite up to the standards of the cruise line we mostly use, we still had a couple of enjoyable evenings in the theater. The group, Rookie, was phenomenal!! We heard several negative comments regarding the decline of service and food, however, we found nothing to support these comments. The Captain was eager to point out special sightings of whales, icebergs and even the Northern Lights, which were greatly appreciated, and we might have missed without his announcements! We would definitely consider RCCI again in the future.
Our cabin was extremely clean and decently sized. We would have appreciated a refrigerator, microwave and coffee pot.
