Disappointing Ship

Sail Date: February 2014
Destination: Australia & New Zealand
Embarkation: Sydney (Australia)

My wife and I have cruised with RC several times on the Rhapsody/Radiance so we were looking forward to our trip on the Voyager. Embarkation on the ship started an hour late due to, we were told, a "Computer malfunction" but we found out later that there had been a norovirus outbreak aboard the ship.

This ship definitely does NOT have the WOW factor of the other two ships mentioned. No large glass walls to look out onto the ocean. It was hard to find an area that you could look out onto the ocean apart from our balcony in our stateroom. Due to the large Royal Promenade deck all the facilities are very squashy and small. The only time we were able to find a seat in the coffee shop was early morning. The Windjammer restaurant is best visited outside normal eating times otherwise unable to find a table to sit and eat.

The entertainment on board was good in the main theatre. The ice skating show was top class. It was hard to find live music at some of the drinking venues More on board.

There was a terrible smell coming from the carpet outside the lift on Deck 7 also on deck 4 which a lot of passengers commented on..

The food in the main restaurant was great and the food was top class just like the service. I did go to the "Captains Corner" were he mentioned that the ship is going to have a makeover later this year with more specialty restaurants and also a "Surfrider" on the back of the ship.

We just found the ship to be far to big with lots of passengers all trying to converge on lots of small areas.

We have travelled on the Celebrity Solstice twice in the last year. This ship is just a little smaller than the Voyager but we found this ship to have much more of a WOW factor and much more space in their public areas. Less

Cabin review: Voyager of the Seas 7610

Nice and quiet in this cabin. No noise from above or below. Good service from our stateroom attendant.
