Thought I would give a quick review of our recent cruise on Voyager of the Seas on a 14 day South Pacific cruise. I thought I would break it down into sections to gather my thoughts so hopefully it make sense :D
We are a family of 5, 2 ...
This was our second RCI cruise in a balcony cabin just four along the corridor on level Seven from the one we had on the Mariner last year from Tianjin. The difference this time was to go to Sydney by train from Canberra at a nominal cost ...
We have two kids, aged 4 and 7. We usually visit resorts, and enjoy pool time. We thought that we would mix things up with the cruise. Unfortunately, we didn't really enjoy the experience.
1. Cabin was great;
2. Dining ...
We chose this cruise because it was going to Fiji. Embarkation was smooth as our shuttle did not arrive at the dock until after 1pm. Cabin was good and we really liked the private balcony, and the shower stall (not over bath). Our cabin ...
Embarkation was well organized from the moment we were welcomed by the bag drop staff, to the port staff directing us where to go, and the seamless check in, customs and security procedures.
The first thing we noticed was that there ...
General: Loved our cruise holiday, loved the room (Superior with Balcony –Deck 7 (room 7640), very happy with friendly helpful staff. Very pleased with amenities, 'cruise compass' newsletter communication (delivered during turndown ...
This was our first cruise on Royal Caribbean. We have previously cruised on Celebrity, Princess, Norwegian and Holland America. We chose Royal Caribbean to see how it compared to the others and if it was a viable alternative for us (newly ...
Did a cruise to south pacific first time on Voyager it is a big ship and has a lot of good points such as entertainment, food and kids activities Main dining room was good staff seemed a bit run of there feet but did their best ,Windjammer ...
We all had fun and loved the great friendly service. The ship had a family ship vibe with kids, parents and grand parents all having fun. Wide range of activities.
traveled with our 9 year old daughter who loved the whole experience. ...
(1) We spent 90 minutes on 4 or 5 different queues before finally getting on board. There must be a better way to do this.
(2) Then our extended family of eleven were given 4 different dinner times. OK sometimes stuff happens. This ...
Voyager of the Seas, 12 day South Pacific cruise (New Caledonia & Fiji) r/t from Sydney, superior balcony cabin, deck 9 forward, 3,700 passengers + 1,200 crew. About 80% of the passengers were Australian and about 30% were families ...
The main thing about the cruise was the kids club. DD8 really enjoyed it, it was very active (much more so than Princess and P&O) with lots of ball games and running around.
It's a pity that they don't have a printed list at the ...
First cruise for me, second (30 years apart) for my partner. We flew to Sydney the day before and stayed at the Megaboom Hotel, It was nice and handy. Boarding for us was 12-1pm, the lining up was probably the worst part of the whole ...
Sailed 01 November 2016 on a 7 day trip to Noumea. Embarked from Sydney. We found it a very organised setup with plenty of staff to give directions or answer queries.
Our cabin was a Junior Suite on Deck 9 with a lovely balcony. It was ...
We chose this cruise as we were traveling with first timers who didn't want to commit to anything longer. On a ship the size of Voyager 7 days just isn't enough.
Embarkation in Sydney was a breeze. From baggage drop off to cabin took ...
We chose this cruise as we felt that would be enough onboard to entertain 6 adults and 6 grandchildren.
Embarkation took over an hour, but hey they processed 3800 people in just a few hours.
Cabins were stock standard, of a a high ...
There is plenty of information on this great site regarding the Voyager. This review is intended to give an overall opinion without too much detail.
We have cruised many times on different ships to various destinations - cruising from ...
This was, without doubt, the worst holiday experience I have encountered to the extent that I asked the ships Customer Services Manager about being let off the ship in Brisbane. We suffered two weeks of beer swilling noisy and foul mouthed ...
I have sailed with RCI for many year's, but would have to think very hard to select them again.
Size of Balcony cabin small, and a very small balcony indeed.
After a massive re-furb, I am not quite sure where they spent their money.
We had always cruised with Royal Caribbean as our preferred line - but that loyalty has been eroded over the last 4 or 5 years to the extent that we have just had our final 2 cruises with them; choosing to take advantage of the Status ...
i booked this cruise so we can see Singapore and being on Allure of the seas from fort lauderdale we thought it was going to be wonderful sailing with Voyager. Well it started off with long long waiting to embark and loosing our customs ...
We have cruised with Royal Caribbean before in Europe and found them great so when we saw this repositioning cruise we decided to do it. We recieved an email prior to the cruise advising as we were on deck 12 we should be at the cruise ...
Needing time away, this was a fantastic break away which met every box for me. You can met as many people as you like or just spend time on your own, the choice was yours which was great!! .
Embarking was a bit slow, but hay, over ...
Singapore to Sydney. Cabin was ok attendant was not on the ball I had no clean towels 3 separate times and no spare toilet paper also. Dining room, 2nd sitting was half full/empty, The main meals were warm to cool, not hot,the creme ...
Good package and a few days in Singapore so we were ready to go.
Embarkation was ok but we waited until 120 new crew were embarked.
Chaos because of new staff who were thrown into work without specific training. The first night our ...
