Recently completed a 10 night cruise to Fiji aboard the beautiful Voyager of The Seas! We enjoyed being on the ship, great facilities for all ages as well as great destination. We do enjoy our cruising days, so this trip only had 3 ports of call, (Noumea, Suva and Lautoka)which suited us fine. Prior to the cruise, we stayed in Sydney (Darling Harbour) for a couple of nights, it did reduce the anxiety levels of flying into the harbour city and then getting to the pier. Highly recommend that to anyone contemplating sailing out of Sydney who live in another state/country.
Embarkation was very smooth, on board within 15 minutes which was fantastic as we have been at other embarkations which have taken 45 minutes and longer! RCL have got it down pat is seems!!
Our cabin was a junior suite this time, perfect for us. So good in fact, that we have booked the same cabin on the return cruise out of Singapore after the refurbishment next November! Now, the furnishings are a little tired, so will be interested in any changes the cruise line makes for the next cruise.
Dining was "my time" and we had a great table of fellow cruisers who we met and had dinner all at the same time. Food, as always, was fantastic in the dining room. Plenty to choose from to cover all tastes, though I was a little disappointed in the wine list, or should say, the lack of wine by the glass choices on the wine list. On other ships, there never has been a issue about getting wine by the glass from the bottle range, so not sure why this time it was.
Great range of entertainment on board, RCL does seem to pick the best of the best to come on board, especially the ice dancers in the show on the ice. Especially enjoyed the Pig & Whistle pub on the Promenade where almost every night a great singer played until well after midnight!
And at the end of the cruise, disembarkation went as smoothly as getting aboard. We were out on the street within 5 minutes of leaving the gangway, very efficiently done.
All in all, we had a fantastic trip, we do like RCL for its ships, layouts, and value for money. And as I said, we have booked our next cruise in November on the Voyager, looking forward to seeing her in her new makeup, lol.
