After the summer in Alaska, Vision of the Seas will be placed in LA for a series of 3/4 nights then continuing again with 7 nights to Mexico. I have read that they will be placing a ship semi-permanently at LA for the year round 3/4 night soon. I will be taking back to back cruises on 10/14 and 10/18 on Vision on that 3/4 night sailing. Have been on Viking Serenade no less than 15 times and miss the old girl and all the staff. On my last voyage on VS a lot of the crew were adamant about signing on to what ever ship was assigned out of LA for the 3/4 nighters.
