We were not very happy with our cruise. We have been on RCCL 8 times, as well as numerous cruises on Sea Dream Yachts, Windstar, Costa, Celebrity, Silverseas, Norwegian, and Princess, and this was the worst one we were on, and will probably cause us to avoid RCCL in the future. We know things can go wrong, and we have a sense of humor, but this cruise just was too much to take. We booked a ...

This was a 9 day reposition cruise for the Vision of the Seas beginning in Vancouver BC, visiting Juneau, Skagway, Ketchikan, San Francisco and ending in Long Beach. Day1: Our flight from Denver was uneventful (that's the way I like them). We qualified for US Direct so we didn't have to bother with Canadian Customs, just off the plane, follow the signs and on to a bus to the pier. The ship was as ...

This was our 1st trip to Alaska, our 5th cruise total and our 3rd with RCL. We loved this trip over all but had a few problem with the beginning and end of our adventure. We flew out of Pittsburgh, PA into Vancouver BC with a layover in Chicago. No problem with the flight although it was a long,long flight. We booked our transfers with RCL in order to take advantage of the USDirect program and ...

This was my first time of the Vision of the Seas, my 5th cruise with Royal Caribbean. The cruise was beyond my expectations. We ran into a storm front that forced us to miss Skagway and visit Icy Straits Point instead. While I was a bit disappointed with the change, I felt the Captain made a wise decision. The seas were so rough I was being tossed like a feather in my bed. [I weigh ...

This was cruise #7 for me and #8 for my husband, first time to Alaska, fourth time on RCCL. First time with a junior suite and a balcony. Positive: Captain George was wonderful. When we were travelling through areas of sea life (whales, etc), he would slow the ship. We had wonderful weather every day except at Icy Straight Point. When we left port, Captain George announced that he was going to ...

I have been home for about a week now from my May 27th sailing of Vision of the Seas, cruisetour #16. As a little bit of background, I am 30 and DH is 28 and we are Canadians. I am an indoor girl, and not very fit, but did a lot of outdoor things on this trip. This was our first cruise, and for me it was more about the excursions than the towns/shopping or even the ship itself. All of our ...

Cruising sure has changed. We have been loyal to RCI for many years, but alas, I think it's time to move on. Every cruise prior to this one has been jaw-dropping incredible. We've even done this exact cruise before and had the same exact stateroom, but times have changed and so did our cruise experience. It is clear that the company has made sweeping cutbacks--food quality, service, activities, ...

I was aboard Vision of the Seas' 292nd cruise, from Vancouver to Seward. This was my very first cruise and first exposure to the cruising lifestyle. I didn't know what to expect, I was travelling on a budget so my expectations were low. EMBARKATION: We arrived about an hour after the scheduled start of embarkation. There weren't that many people and we wound up going from cab to ship in about 20 ...

This was my sixth cruise, the second on Royal Caribbean. (The other four cruises were all on Carnival.) We chose the Alaska itinerary because I've always wanted to cruise to Alaska, and RCI was our pick because we had enjoyed our 1993 honeymoon cruise to the Bahamas on Majesty of the Seas and probably more importantly, because that particular cruise fit into the 2-week period that we had without ...

We sailed from Vancouver on July 9 on Vision. We had a wonderful time. The weather was better than anyone expected. Captain George was courteous to the needs of the crew and to the passengers. He went out of his way to show us whales, dolphins and other wildlife while cruising. On one of our cruising days, he heard of a pod of whales and we cruised out of our path to find them. Lo and behold there ...
