We also were on the Voyager of the Seas Asian cruise from October 8th - October 22nd.
The cruise went from Tianjin,China to Fukuoka,Japan, Jeju Island, South Korea, Xiamen, China, Hong Kong, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, Bangkok,Thailand, and Singapore.
We, on the whole, thought it was a fabulous cruise!!!!!
Yes, there were some negatives, but the positives definitely outweighed the negatives!!!
The biggest negative for us, was that RCCL called us in August and told us it was going to be a "Chinese Immersion Cruise" with mostly Chinese passengers, food, entertainment, and languages. They actually implied that we would have a horrible experience.
Nothing was further from the truth as there were mostly Britons, Australians, Americans, and Canadians!!! Only English was spoken.
Check in was horrible and disorganized but at debarkation we walked right off the ship with no waiting and found our luggage!!! The food wasn't the greatest but the kitchen staff went out of their way to cater to my special diet.
The staff all over the ship was exceptional!
Most important of all, the fellow passengers were wonderful, and
they made this a fantastic cruise. We met people from all over the world and
formed some wonderful friendships!!!
The ports were mostly amazing!!! We especially loved Hong Kong, Bangkok, and Singapore!
We booked a few private excursions in Vietnam and Bangkok and did others with the cruise line.
The excursions we did with the cruise line were, for the most part, great.
The only port we did not think was so great was our stop in Japan.
All of our tour guides were very good and informative.
Yes, RCCL has to get their act together in some areas, but on the whole, it was a fabulous cruise!!
