Ship Facts: Voyager of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Voyager of the Seas Deck Plans
1st time review
EMBARKATION: Impressive - although there was a long line of people in the arrival lounge it moved freely and soon we were checking in with very efficient and friendly staff.

1st IMPRESSIONS: Impressive - being 1st time cruisers I have read a few recent reviews and was not expecting too much but was awestruck from the moment we stepped inside. Can't believe people from cruise before were complaining about condition of ship - we thought it was impressive.

STATEROOM: Comfortable, had a balcony room and don't think I would travel with anything less - rooms are smallish but comfortable, ability to open the door and step outside made it even more enjoyable - quite often took some time out and just contemplated the sea.

DINING: Food - Food & more Food. No complaints at all, vast variety of options in both the formal dining room, Windjammer and Promenade Cafe. Only complaint with there being a majority of Australian passengers they ran out of English Breakfast Tea and due to cancellation of second stop ran out of a few fresh food options (strawberries).

BEVERAGES: Extremely varied in cost v's quality. Mixed cocktail=$7.90 yet glass of champagne=$20!!! Drinks of the day well priced & you get to keep the glass as well.

ACTIVITIES: So much to do, half hourly options - something for everyone - have to force yourself not to run from one to the other and wear yourself out. Some of the activities that had charges a little overpriced for what they were - however you always have the option to participate or not. Back-scenes Tour at $150 well overpriced, at $50 would have filled 20 times over and probably made more overall.

ENTERTAINMENT: Varied, Ice Show=Spectacular, Guest Entertainers=OK/Good, Caribbean showtime=one show poor, another good.

EXCURSIONS: Disappointed after one port of call cancelled due to engine problems. One taken was enjoyable and provided a snapshot of the area.

STAFF: Mostly helpful, attentive and friendly. Represented by 49 different countries one or two instances language became a barrier especially in public service areas (Ben & Jerry's & Guest Services). Waitstaff & Room attendant could not have been more attentive.

PUBLIC AREAS: Bright & Impressive. One small complaint was that ladies rooms could have been attended more frequently - always clean but sometimes with insufficient amenities.

OTHER: Photograph's freely & professionally taken, bit expensively priced with insufficient pack options. Shopping - need more simple souveneer options, specifically for children.

DISEMBARKATION: Excellend, efficient, quick. Very organised process.
