NO FRIDGE IN VISION CLASS SHIPS? Rhapsody, Vision

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Just reading some reviews of Rhapsody & Vision - see that there are no refrigerators in inside/ocean view cabins.  Not sure about balcony.  Always like to have a fridge - to keep water/vino cool.  Is not having one a hassle?  Have never been on a Vision class ship before & thinking about it.  Wondered if the cabins are that much smaller than normal too.

 

One reviewer mentioned cabin attendant would bring you a fridge if you asked.   Anyone had any experience with this?  Will they bring you a fridge on these ships?

Thanks for all replies!

We were on the Vision in October. Balcony cabins do have refrigerators.

They will bring you a medical fridge if needed.  If you need  something to keep wine cool, they will bring you a plastic container for the wine and keep it filled with ice.  If you need more, bring a collapsible cooler and they will keep that filled with ice.

Hey Bob - thanks.   Yes, of course, ice would do the trick.   The cooler is a great idea!!  Hadn't thought of that.  Many heads are truly better than one.

Thanks.  Not familiar with vision class ships.  But seems to me that only outlets are on along desk shelf.

We have been on several Vision class ship's and always had a fridge in our balcony cabins.

A nice tip to your cabin steward if you don't have a fridge in your cabin usually helps.

They often stick it under the desk/vanity.

 

So likely this would be a smaller size fridge to fit in that space?

Thanks,

I think they are a little smaller than the ones you are used to seeing on bigger Royal ships. We contacted the special needs department prior to sailing the recent Vision TA

No fridge in ocean view in Rhapsody FYI. No obvious place to put one either. We had 3 ice buckets trying to keep the bottles of wine/water/soda cold lined up along the floor.....😬

Under desk/vanity didn't work out?

I've put the ice buckets in the shower since they sweat

Not sure about other rooms but we are on vision right now and it is lacking outlets badly.  We have junior suite with no outlets by bed so we have huge extension cord of ship strung across floor to provide power to husband cpap.......didnt tape the cord down or anything??   We have a coffee pot in the junior suite but there is no power outlet anywhere near it???   We knew there would be some problems with being on a small, older ship and we are realizing it more and more.

We always take a small padded cooler with us. We put drinks, wine and water in it and have it fill with ice.................

Pretty typical of most Royal ships.  Those JS's never have outlets for the coffee maker.

 I was going to say the exact same time Bob. Either way no worries they will make it work for you, just ask!

Great idea. I usually wrap the bucket in a towel, or ask for a double bucket and put it on a plate.

On the Rhapsody last March, we requested a fridge to be in the cabin through our travel agent.  It was there, next to the vanity/drawers.  We had a connecting door to the next cabin there that was not being used, so they placed it there.  If the cabin is not a connecting one, it will be placed under the vanity in the open space.  You will not be able to put the chair there, by the way.
