Ship Facts: Voyager Review (by Cruise Critic!)
Disappointing Boat

We travelled on Voyager for the first time, having been on the company's other boat, Discovery, several times before and liked it. What was good about Voyager was the Filipino staff, who had been transferred from Discovery. They are the ship's greatest asset - wonderful, friendly, helpful people.

The cabin was fine and we were happy with the food. We also appreciated the open dining, the fact that one wasn't allocated a specific table and one could (within limits) choose when and where one dined. So far so good, but this ship is not as well designed as the Discovery and the way the spaces are used was also not satisfactory.

The library is just a corridor adjoining an often noisy lounge, the doors between the two constantly being kept open so there is no peace when one wishes to read. Nor is there any requirement that people remain silent in the library, so that it really becomes and extension of the lounge.

There is often also no place on the ship where one can have a quiet drink, when entertainments are taking place in all the lounges. This is just bad planning as it is not necessary to use all the lounges simultaneously. There is a fairly large room used for the 'bridge club' which could be a quiet bar, the bridge club not really needing such a large space.

The excursions are a bit hit and miss. Some were very good, but others were dire and overpriced. One has to be careful.

It would be good customer service to provide free drinking water more plentifully (very few dispensers currently).
