Hey everyone,

LMaxwell has a great thread going already with excellent Vision photos already... this thread is adding to that so that I wouldn't hijack that thread. After replying to several posts about the renovated Vision in the past couple of months, I thought I'd post some of my own photos of the ship itself to supplement LMaxwell's thread... this isn't a review of my vacation as I just want to show more pics of The Vision to any CC'er interested in the ship itself. Unfortunately I have a few photos I did not include (ie. Chops, etc) as I did not want to include personal photos.

Here are some threads with some good thoughts regarding the Vision form several CC'ers:

Thanks for posting! I'm a Carnival cruiser looking to take my first cruise on a RCI ship. We are currently looking into booking Vision of the Seas and couldn't seem to find a lot of updated info on it.

It's definitely different looking than her Carnival counterparts

Hope you enjoyed!

For those of you who have only sailed Voyager class ships and larger, I would strongly recommend trying a Vision Class ship sometime. I did LIberty/Majesty B2b in 2011 ... And this year Both Rhapsody & Vision after being on Oasis in May. Had a great vacation on every ship I've been on!! Vision will in in Fort Lauderdale and Tampa the next 2 years.. many of you I'm sure may have the opportunity to grab a short 4 or 5 night cruise for great prices.

You're welcome!

I think to get a really good feel for what RCL is all about and the amenities/venues their ships give you, I feel you should book your first cruise on a Voyager or Freedom Class ship.

If you're looking at the Vision, I'm guessing your seeing short cruises out of Tampa and FLL? Definitely look at Freedom, Liberty, Indy and Explorer first if you can... HAPPY CRUISING

Thank you so much for the beautiful pictures of the beautiful tiny ship. Also, have to thank LMAXWELL for his posts

You both were very instrumental in our decision to book the Vision. In December, when we were looking for our next cruise, I saw that the Vision was coming back to Port Evergladeds.
But, she looked so small next to the other ships and I knew she was older (1998)

But, after seeing your posts and great photos, we have booked her for5/3/2014
You both have such a positive attitude about the Vision to go with your beautiful pictures
Thank you

Thank you so much for all your photos. We'll be on boarding this very day, next year! Looking forward to it very much.

What did you think of your cabin post-revitalization?
