Ship Facts: Voyager of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Voyager of the Seas Deck Plans
Great for relaxing, disappointing pool for adults

Went on this cruise with my mum - we were both first time cruisers.

Did not have any time to research beforehand, so there were a few things that as a first-time cruiser would have been nice to know (for all the newbies out there):

-the onboard currency is USD

-'deck' refers to the floor/level that you are on

-there is less rocking/movement on the lower floors, near the middle of the boat

-it can get quite windy so you need to bring warm clothes/windbreakers

-bring a lanyard with you (unless you want to buy a 'souvenir' one for around USD$5)

-there are no free wifi hotspots - its all paid, and quite expensive

-bring a travel clock/watch, as its hard to find a clock on the ship

-I saw some people brought radios/walkie-talkies - seemed like a great idea if you are travelling with a few people, so you could communicate on board.

A review of our experience:

-The activities were very much geared towards children - lots of Dreamworks branded events, movies were generally children's movies

-the pools were reasonably dissapointing - there were basically two pool areas, and one was constantly full of children. The adult pool was very small, and had no view whatsoever, and was solar heated so not pleasant on a warm day.

-food was on average good, but was hit and miss - desserts were mostly bad, salad and fruit generally good, good burgers and steaks, but roasts werent nice.

-service was on average good, but I did feel pressure all the time to order alcohol - we were asked at least three times every dinner service whether we wanted to order a drink.

-we went on two port excursions through RC -both were generally well organised and there wasnt too much waiting around time. We elected to make our own way back to the ship at Lautoka Fiji, which cost us around AU$3 instead of USD$14 that RC were charging for a shuttle bus. Was very easy to find a taxi.

-Utilised the gym - was well equipped and never completely full so you could use the machine you wanted at any time. Had free weights and an area with exercise mats.

-disembarkation was smooth and quick, although we requested a 8:30-9am time slot and were allocated to 7am.
