Although Vision of the Seas is one of the smaller ships in the Royal Caribbean fleet, do not be fooled by her size. She boasts many of the most innovative features at sea and is home to an array of exciting venues.
Launched in 1998, with a major revitalisation in 2011, she is a true beauty from bow to stern. Her exterior was designed with glass walls allowing the views from outside to ripple through to her interior. More than two acres of glass was used in the ship’s construction to ensure people could get the feeling of being at sea even when inside the ship. Many industry professionals have said she is one of the best ships afloat for viewing the passing scenery.
With something for everyone to enjoy onboard you will never find yourself with nothing to do, unless of course, doing nothing is all you want to do. Home to many Royal Caribbean favourites such as the rock climbing wall, the signature Viking Crown lounge, large spa area and a solarium with sliding glass roof there is ample choice.
For those who like adventure and new experiences, Vision of the Seas is a great ship for you, she has a range of fun activities onboard such as rock climbing, fitness centre, a sports court and a team of cruise staff hosting activities, tournaments and games throughout the cruise.
If getting away to relax is more your thing, be rest assured that Vision of the Seas is your perfect getaway. With a choice of elegant lounges to sit back and watch the outside world pass by, you can always find the perfect place to park yourself with a book or just simply put your feet up. The large onboard spa can offer you a range of calming treatments and the adult-only solarium area allows you to escape to a land of pure tranquillity.
A great ship for children, she will provide hours of fun and smiles for the little ones. The award winning Adventure Ocean Club will host a variety of games, activities and events for children’s and teens.
