We picked this so we could go to Petra. The other stops were useless--Athens on Easter Sunday? Everythihjng was closed. Israel on Good Friday? Everything was closed. They should have planned this better. Onboard, lectures and trivia were great. Dining room food was fine, but service was lacking. Windjammer was typical. What they call "mousse" is some kind of whipped jello. Pavlovas were fantastic. Staff gave good attention to the diners. I loved that the specialty restaurants were open for lunch, but this was not advertised well. We were the only ones in Chops and Giovanni's Table for lunch, and it was good! Half the cost of dinner, and the lasagna is to die for! They had a large smoking area by the pool, but there were not enough ashtrays. Lounge chairs by the pool were losing their straps. I loved that there were coffee stations, and the Park Cafe provided delicious breakfast sandwiches, fruit, parfaits, and bagels. Read Less

We were originally booked on the Legend of the Seas (RCI) for a Singapore to Dubai cruise with 4 stops in India. It was just what we wanted. Cruise booked and paid for - we were then notified that the Legend of the Seas was being sold and our cruise cancelled. We had to find something else. So we transferred to this cruise. Had a suite booked on the Legend - couldn't get one on the Vision because their were sold out. A number of things booked on the Legend could not be afforded to us on the Vision. Overall the cruise destinations and ports were good. Staff onboard the ship were just wonderful. However, the entertainment was shocking. We saw only two shows with the singers/dancers from the ship. The rest of the 'headliner' acts were all paid to be there. Bill the Cruise Director I believe needs to move on and get some vibrancy into the program. The shows were geared toward a select group of people from a select age group - rarely did you see a young crowd in the theatre. Too much was being held inside and not enough activities on the upper decks outside. If you come across Michaela (dining room), Seby (Windjammer) or Natalia (jewelry shop) you have struck an absolute stunning group of staff who would turn the ship upside down to help you. We found the balcony cabins extremely small on this ship comparative to other cruise lines. The junior suites on RCI are about the same size as other lines that we are used to on other lines. Food: stick with the dining room or specialty restaurants. The Windjammer (buffet) is not great - perhaps for breakfast or something really quick. Read Less
