Itinerary at a glance:
Day 1 – New Orleans, Louisiana
What a sweet, and savory, location to start your vacation. Arrive early to explore the French Quarter, eat a scrumptious meal (or several), stroll through Jackson Square and enjoy the colorful gardens and people. Your cruise will depart at 4:30 PM.
Day 2 – Enjoy a full day at sea and take advantage of all the fun and entertainment that Vision of the Seas has to offer. There’s a rock-climbing wall, a video arcade, two pools, and a poolside movie screen.
On Day 3, you’ll arrive early in the morning in Cozumel, Mexico. Snorkel one of the world’s largest coral reefs, visit the hotspot of Tulum, or simply sink your toes in the sand at Playa Mia beach and enjoy an ice cold Michelada. (A michelada is a Mexican drink made with beer, lime juice, and assorted sauces, spices, and peppers. It is served in a chilled, salt-rimmed glass.)
The next morning you will arrive in Puerto Costa Maya, Mexico, where the past meets the present. Venture into the jungle for a glimpse of Maya history at the nearby ruins. Ramp up the fun at a nearby aqua park. Stroll around the charming fishing villages, shop for souvenirs or local handicrafts.
On Day 5, you’ll awaken in a whole new country, Honduras! Roatan, with its dramatic volcanic coastline, dense rainforest and sandy shores will indulge all of your senses. Snorkel, hike, visit the lively West End villages or relax on a secluded beach.
Day 6 and 7 will be spent at sea. Why not explore the many foodie choices onboard and indulge in that Spa treatment that we promised you? Plus, take in as much of the award-winning entertainment as you fit into your schedule. You’ll be very glad you did. If you’d rather chill by the pool with a book than hit the rock-climbing wall, this is the ship for you. The adults-only Solarium pool is adults-only and has a retractable glass roof. Or book a treatment at Vitality Spa, which offers everything from body wraps and massage to acupuncture and Botox.
