Ship Facts: Seven Seas Voyager Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Seven Seas Voyager Deck Plans
Beautiful Baltic
This was our best cruise experience ever. What we look for in a cruise experience has changed over the years. Where once we thought a balcony was superfluous, we now enjoy the solitude of a personal space escape. Voyager was by far our most enjoyable cruise to date. Our Penthouse C cabin was spacious, had plenty of storage, room to move around, the separate shower (full size, not Euro size) and tub was great, and the size of the balcony was the best ever. Knowing a glass of wine on the balcony would be waiting for us at the end of each excursion day was delightful and relaxing.

We did the math before choosing Regent Seven Seas and the all included price was comparable to what we would pay on another line for the same level of amenities. While taking a chance that it would be worth the greater price up-front, we were not disappointed. The excursions were managed very well, very efficient, the destination staff members were friendly, informative and efficient. The only improvement I would like to see would be port maps included in "Passages", and a port weather report posted 24 hours in advance rather than 12 hours.

The dining was enjoyable in every venue. Food presentation was very nice and portion size was appropriate. The dining staff provided the best service ever. All staff members spoke English very clearly which was appreciated. The ladies in La Veranda were lovely, upbeat, funny, and a joy. The men were equally as attentive, humorous, and created an enjoyable environment. The Compass Rose staff were very attentive and had a few special folks that made dining something for which to look forward. "Newman" from Bali was a delight and addressed us by name all over the ship. We looked for him in every venue knowing he would make our dining a fun and delightful event whether it be informal at the pool grill or reserved and elegant. He led the servers in a rendition of "let me call you sweetheart" for our anniversary celebration.

Our butler and stewardess, Saraj and Ni, never missed a beat. They were always charming and moved in and out like stealth. Everything was taken care of without ever having to ask. They made our anniversary very special and memorable. I won't provide details so as not to spoil for anyone else looking forward to a special celebration. Suffice it to say our cabin and dining crew brought me to tears of joy.

The evening canapes were excellent and could have doubled for entrees. Compared to other lines, this was the best by far. Having a glass of wine with canapes, at dinner, an after dinner drink, all without worrying about the bill made the experience that much more enjoyable.

We love history and looked forward to the lectures. Unfortunately, the lecturer on this cruise would put an insomniac to sleep. The content was ok, but the delivery was painful. The captain was a bit of a marble mouth as well. Sorry. I know his skills are in steering the ship. However, a little expression in his voice and clear articulation would have made his announcements more encouraging.

We would definitely recommend the Voyager for anyone looking for understated elegance and sophistication, good food, exceptional service and comfort.
