This is a very small ship when compared with many other ships (15000 tonnes), with the advantage of quick embarkations, friendliness on board and different ports of call it can make. The disadvantage on size and age is its ability to ... Read more

Booked this cruise because of the itinerary and from that point of view we were not disappointed. We are not cruise experts, having only previously been on one Thomson Canary Islands cruise and two European river cruises. However, ... Read more

Stayed onboard for back to back cruises. 1st Cruise, Britain's Beautiful Isles Excellent itinerary, visited several Scottish Islands which would be a pain to get to by car ferry. For next year this cruise is already nearly booked ... Read more

Attracted by the itinerary, a little wary of it being a small ship, but most of the passengers and especially the crew were very friendly. Being small we could get into more interesting places and it was quick to embark/disembark. On ... Read more

Having thoroughly enjoyed 3 cruises with Voyages of Discovery on the Discovery ship, we were reluctant to book Voyager as we were apprehensive about the layout of the ship. However, when we saw this cruise had a Galapagos Islands add-on, ... Read more

The draw of this cruise was the destinations along the south/west coast of Central America and ultimately the Panama Canal into Colombia, finishing in Cartagena. My booking included flights from Heathrow with AeroMexico: Voyages of ... Read more

This was our first cruise with Voyages and i really had no bench mark to use as a comparison other than several cross Atlantic trips with Cunard. The ship was a perfect size having a capacity of just over 500. This way we were treated like ... Read more

My reason for doing this trip was to see exotic out of the way places, other ships cannot get to. Because I was a late booker, I was given a bottom deck cabin, size for single person OK, but Oh! so tired and old looking, with ... Read more

We went on Voyager recently and had an appalling experience. The facilities in the cabin were completely misrepresented in the brochure. We learnt that head office had dreamt up lots of new facilities for the cabins, printed them in ... Read more

Our central and south America “small ship” cruise on Voyager was a highly enjoyable experience – so too apparently for many fellow passengers who were on repeat cruises. If you want Las Vegas on the waves, Voyager is ... Read more

i booked this cruise with some trepidation; i had never been on a ship this small (i think capacity is less than 500 - what would it be like crossing the Atlantic?) and it was expected that most of the passengers were to be British (would ... Read more

Disliked: Two of the six life boats were old with damaged GRP hulls (the outer resin layer broken and the under-lying fibreglass matting was visible) - not very reassuring ! Old fashioned cabins, difficult to adjust air conditioning due ... Read more

This cruise visited five ports in Turkey and five in Greece, a number of which were ports that are not visited by the larger cruise ships and all of which were interesting ports. Our flights, from Manchester, were arranged by the cruise ... Read more

Our holiday began well, with a rep from Voyages of Discovery meeting us at Heathrow to assist with checking in. It was the speediest check in ever, and stress free. We had an excellent flight to Athens, and once again we were met at the ... Read more

We are used to cruising on much bigger ships and therefor it was with some trepidation, after reading some adverse comments on various web sites, that we made the booking. This decision was made because of the ports the ship was due to ... Read more

Voyages of Discovery (VOD) is not for everyone, so best not blindly choose this ship if you are looking for conventional large ship cruising and expect a floating hotel with distractions and land-based luxuries. We are active seniors have ... Read more

We undertook this trip to see the Solar Eclipse and to that extent it was a successful cruise. However Voyager has many faults and these led to an, at best, average cruise overall. Embarkation was a shambles. We were left sitting in ... Read more
