Ship Facts: Voyager of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Voyager of the Seas Deck Plans
First cruise on Voyager

We have travelled to New Zealand previously, so booked on this cruise simply to have a look at Voyager.

If you haven't cruised to New Zealand before then book a cruise on Radiance or Rhapsody, not Voyager. We found the itinerary for Voyager very restrictive, only getting into some ports after lunch. Passengers wanting to look at local museums etc found they closed at 5 so there was no point in visiting them.

Because of wind affecting the big ship Voyager was unable to enter the port of Dunedin which is one of the better places to visit in NZ so passengers were very disappointed. Voyager also doesn't visit Akoroa (the closest port to Christchurch) either so you miss a lot of the best of New Zealand by choosing this ship. She was also late leaving Melbourne due to high winds yet again.

We have cruised on 3 other occasions with varying weather and never missed ports or been late leaving like with this ship.

We had the same problem as other passengers with a power board. We have taken this power board on Radiance twice with no problems, I really wish RC would get their security personnel on the same page.

Staff on board were amazing and we loved the Ice Shows, don't miss it if you go. I think they should put more shows on as they were crowded.

They really need to address the Windjammer, food was average and you could never find a seat.

It was also hard to find your way this bigger ship. Once you realised to you had to go to deck 5 or 4 - the only 2 decks that go from end to end you were right. But it meant catching the elevator, going down a couple of floors, walking, then getting another elevator.

Apart from that we enjoyed our trip but will be going back to Radiance if we chose to cruise with RC again.
