Vision has only two restaurants (the main restaurant and Windjammer) and one coffee shop. Add the "buffet" at the solarium pool and that's it.
On the other hand I have found the food to be better onboard Vision than any other RCI ship I have been cruising.
I have to say I really liked Vision. It's nice onboard, but as have been said before not with all the bells and whistles that can be found onborad the bigger RCI ships. The Vision class is more about close connection to the sea.
Erik, I cruised Sovereign of the Seas twice. She was a lovely ship-my only complaint was the size of the staterooms-but even that is fine-if only 2 people share a stateroom. I do not need a lot of restaurants either.
So the Baltic can be cool in the summers? Not a problem with me. Summers are hard on me. I really hope I can go on a Baltic at some point. Plus I would like to see Holland/Netherlands especially as I have Dutch ancestry.
We have not been to Hawaii yet-and that is on our "bucket list" also-but I hope the Baltic is our next "big" cruise after this summer to the Med. I do not care if we go to Hawaii as much as the Baltic. We have been to the Caribbean many times-and so I have been to tropical islands, if not specifically the Hawaiian Islands.
