Destination: Australia & New Zealand
Embarkation: Sydney (Australia)

This is the first time we cruised with Royal Caribbean as we were curious to see the Voyager. The ship is terrific in its concept (except that it needs a bit of cleaning up) and that is where it stops. we found it to be a photographic money making exercise.On the third day into the cruise at breakfast in the dining room we asked for a tomato juice and were told hey ran out. They also ran out of crackers for the cheese platters at some stage.Both in the dining room and the Windjammer all there was only fruit salads , All of a sudden on the 12Th day fresh fruit appeared everywhere. As far as customers service we found that comprehension of the English language was lagging.
Also missing was the champagne stack and the bomb Alaska parade which happens on all other cruise ships we travelled on.
The shows were not very impressive. The ice show was good except that it happened twice once for the late diners and the other for the early diners.
The shows in the theatre were More nothing spectacular
The only good one we found were the Quinetics in the Cleopatra lounge
As far as food was concerned in the Windjammer was very basic, warm, the eggs sometimes cold,
In the dining room they seemed to concentrate on chicken most of the time and the variety of meals not very exiting The waiters we had at our table were fantastic We also found that the supposed duty free goods very expensive compared to duty free shops on land. We filled up a forms with our comments and at the bottom was written that someone will contact us to discuss our comments, we are still waiting for that to happen.
Every person we talked to on board were disappointed with the ship and almost all of them said they will not cruise in that ship again. My wife spoke to a Chinese couple who were on the cruise in China and they said that it was completely different food wise and shows and they also were disappointed in this cruise
Royal Caribbean will have to improve their act for us to consider travelling with them again Less
