Big Ship

Sail Date: December 2012
Destination: Australia & New Zealand
Embarkation: Sydney (Australia)

We were 2 of group of 6 travellers, embarking on this ship was pleasant, friendly. Room availability with no hold up, luggage arrived 10 - 15 minutes later all good. ship is beautiful, very large, from memory 3,200 passengers, short version; room staff were excellent, wait staff in dining were also excellent, food 90% of the time in restaurant was great(needs a little more variety) based on this little information cruise was well worth the experience. OK!

Windjammer Cafe very unimpressed; food for 99% of cruise was attractive but very cold every day same variety(none) if you venture to grill part of Windjammer you could have fresh cooked eggs & omelets for breakfast, Lunch salads were best choice (limited variety though) & dinner again if you chose grill for this you could have pasta cooked in front of you. We only dined there for dinner twice.(thought we would give them a 2nd chance to heat food & offer a variety, but no.)Staff in Windjammer were limited in helping with any More request, very unhygenic tables were alway sticky to touch.

Persons Desk on the few times asking for some assistance was difficult as they struggled with interpretation of your request & not having information on what was asked of them without having to ask someone else. These people are trained for this position & still don't know!. Entertainment on this ship (shows, etc) were great, well done & ice show excellent. other daytime entertainment i thought was limited & most of the time too short with little variation. to be cont. Less

Cabin review: Voyager of the Seas Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom Deck 6 8264

Cabins space was plenty, for just the two people, you sleep & shower so how much room do you need?

Port and Shore Excursions


Times in Ports due to tides & other port authority issues are unfortunate, but happen. we went to Kelly Tarltons Underwater World is worth the visit, 10 minutes from port, reasonable entree fee & lots to see. look at what to do before you leave Australia is a good suggestion.

Again as above with Port Authorities. We went to MataMata to see The Hobbiton Movie set again well worth the excursion beautiful country side, movie set great. Then to Rotarua to Skyline luge the view from Mt Ngongotaha was spectacular.

Lame day here went shopping, checked out some tourist attractions. last trip did the cable car train worth the trip.
