I read somewhere that the ship has a new Food Manager, Top Chef, Boss Dog, whatever they are called. She’s a miracle worker, as the food in the MDR was some of the best we’ve ever had. Two of our tablemates usually sail Celebrity, and they commented on how good the food on this sailing was – so much so that they visited the Next Cruise desk for their next vacation.
Somehow we managed to miss all the shows in the theatre, mostly because the kids were tired and we put them to bed.
Final thoughts on the drink package: Most likely I’ll be purchasing it from now on, at least on 7 day or less cruises. Most days I ‘broke even’, and when I didn’t I was still enjoying the types of drinks I wanted. For me, it was worthwhile. I also liked not having to sign the receipt. I tipped my favorite bartenders at the end of the cruise with cash.
Tampa is amazing. Our embarkation and disembarkation was fast and efficient, and the city itself is wonderful. I will seek out cruises that leave from here in the future.
This was the cruise that made me fall in love with cruising again. It was our 13th cruise, and our best. We’re sad that Vision is sailing to Europe and then the middle east, as I’d love to sail on her again.
