Ship Facts: Voyager of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Voyager of the Seas Deck Plans
Great ship - excellent cruise

My wife and I have cruised many many times over the past 35 years and our experience keeps getting better.

After a no hassle embarkation we had a short wait over lunch at the windjammer cafe before we were allowed into our stateroom. The ship's crew were always very helpful and our dining room waiters especially so. We never go for the drink package, as we never waste any ship time "getting our monies worth".

We found that the drink prices were good - beer $5.50 and cocktails $7.50 to $9.50. As we only had a couple of drinks a day it was good value. The only down side is the roast coffee, but thankfully my wife packed heaps of my favorite coffee from home. On 1 night we dined at Portifinos and found it very nice and once again great staff. The Voyager has just about everything that the whole family could want on a ship and can only be better when she returns in November from a refit. Our inside stateroom was wonderful, plenty of room and a proper shower screen too. This was our first time in an inside cabin, but as we are seldom there it suited us fine on this trip - slept well because of the blackness after the lights where turned off - no morning light coming through a window helped too. We will travel again on the Voyager, hopefully next time with 3 generations of our family even the squirmy among them as the Voyager handled 7 metre seas with ease.

The Voyager and Celebrity Solstice were moored very close, bow to bow at Wellington, as the Solstice slowly departed, both ships engaged in a wonderful horn battle the would have been heard all around the Wellington basin. As we have made very good friends with members of the Solstice's crew that was a hightlight for us.

In perfect weather cruising through the Dusky, Doubtful and Milford Sounds, whilst dining in the outside area of Johnny Rockets was just superb, plus there was the wonderful dancing every 30 minutes by the JR's crew.

Disembarkation in Sydney went like a breeze, in fact we were home (30 ks) from Sydney by 9:45am.

RCI, you seem to have it altogether, keep up the good work.
