  1. Steve Davis took over on the May 6 sailing on Vision of the Seas.
  2. Ship - Vision of the Sease Deck - 3 Stateroom # - 3118 Stateroom Category – Oceanview 6N Starboard or Port Side - Port Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – The room was very noisy with constant engine noise. We always check deck plans and location before booking, and this cabin should have been fine. Unfortunately, it was the loudest room we've had in 40 cruises in a variety of cabin types from bow to stern. The noise was from the engine room. Very odd since it was below the Aquarius Dining room on Deck 4, and above staterooms on Deck 2. In the future, we will make sure to avoid anything close to aft and this far down in the ship. This was classified either "midship" or barely "aft". Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? -no Balcony View - Not applicable Balcony Size? Not applicable Was wind a problem? - Not applicable If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? - Not applicable Any specific problems with this cabin? - The cabin thermostat didn't seem to control temperature very well. Even if left untouched overnight, temperature would get warm and later get cold. We had the cabin for two long cruises back-to-back (29 days total), and ended up leaving the thermostat in the middle and living with the fluctuations. 
  3. Count me in as disappointed with the non-existent RCI dress code/ recommendations/ enforcement. Currently on Vision of the Seas, last night was 2nd formal night. At the table next to ours, some guy wore shorts and a t-shirt. His butt crack was visible as he got out of his chair. REALLY??? As a result, we're reconsidering our future cruise options in favor of a higher standard.
  4. We also agree with the shout-out regarding the excellent Captain Marek Slaby and outstanding crew attitude on Vision of the Seas. Probably our favorite ship (followed closely by Capt. Liz on Jewel.)
