Vision of the Seas

Travel in comfort around Europe and the Caribbean onboard Vision of the Seas® – a ship that really does what its name suggests. Enjoy the trip of a lifetime onboard this majestic ship offering many of Royal Caribbean®’s most recognisable elements, and all the top-class amenities you'd find on bigger ships.

About Vision of the Seas

With plenty of glass walls in public areas, Vision of the Seas triumphs at bringing outside views of the sea inside. This is all part of the extensive makeover that took place a few years ago, which also added new Family Staterooms and Panoramic Ocean View Staterooms into the mix.

At the centre of the ship sits the six-deck atrium, Centrum – a remarkable entertainment space you won’t forget anytime soon. During the day there are a plethora of cultural activities such as art auctions, cookery classes and family games to enjoy. Night-time entertainment includes the newly refurbished R Bar where you can listen to live bands or DJs, or Centrum Experience, where you can watch a remarkable aerial aerobatics, light and sound show.

Meanwhile the long-established Viking Crown Lounge® sits 150 feet above sea level and remains as popular as ever. Guests can take a seat by the ceiling-to-floor windows to enjoy the 360-degree views out to sea. You may like to stop by here at night, when you’ll find yourself in a fully fledged nightclub.

If you fancy something even more dramatic, you can always watch a Las Vegas-style show with all the tassels and frocks at the Masquerade Theatre Royal. Or enjoy a night out in one of Royal Caribbean’s most famous areas, Casino Royale®. There are also newer spaces, such as the outdoor movie screen, where you can while away an evening.

The opportunities onboard Vision of the Seas are endless. Outdoor facilities include an open-roof solarium pool, rock climbing, or starting your day as you mean to go on with a jog around the ship’s running track. However, it’s worth remembering that even when you’re indoors on this ship, the glass features mean it won’t feel like it.

Whether you’ve had a full-on day sightseeing or a laid-back day in the sun, it’s good to know you have somewhere relaxing to come back to.
