Although we are devoted Princess fans, particularly of Diamond Princess, we also like to go to Hawaii, stay a while and cruise back. Princess do not have a repositioning cruise that does this so we have been on 2 with RCI, and enjoyed them both. So much so we are going on Rhapsody again in September 2014.
I kept reading about Voyager of the Seas, and the Boardwalk, so convinced my husband to go on a 14 night trip around New Zealand. It has 3600 passengers and every port we wanted to leave the ship, it was complete chaos. Most times only 1 point of disembarkation, and every one trying to get off at the same time, complete with cruise card plus additional photo ID made for a very uncomfortable time. Mobility impaired passengers were not well catered for, and there were no Enrichment lectures of any sort apart from a 1 hour talk about the history of Royal Caribbean. My husband was very disappointed.
A friend who cruised in October 2013, 2 friends who were on it from Feb 4th to 13th, 2014, and us have all suffered respiratory problems which originated on the ship.
Cabin was roomy. What we expect for an accessible cabin, except that it does not have remote door opening from inside as we had on Rhapsody or Radiance.Very difficult for people on scooters or in a wheelchair.
Bathroom had all mobility aids that you could need.
Tea making facility in the cabin for an early morning or late night cuppa, is BLISS. Should be available on every ship on every cruise line.
Definitely would not go on it again. These ships are getting too big and there is no camaraderie on them any more. Rhapsody and Radiance are much friendlier.
