First timers on a 6* cruise.... Youngies too
Destination: Baltic Sea
We found this cruise at a relatively good price considering the all inclusive aspect. Previously we've cruised mainstream American lines (we are a early 30s English couple) but wanted to try the 6* experience having seen so much about it on the TV
At first I was a bit nervous about the size of the ship as we usually do 100k ton ships and I like the stability and amenities of the massive ships. However on boarding Voyager it instantly felt comfortable, was easy to navigate and most important we found was the accessibility between cabin and other venues (on previous cruise it was a considered walk from deck to cabin down an endless corridor). Sailing conditions were excellent through the week, located on deck 7 aft we felt no noise or movement other than the wonderful sailing motion that we love.
We had a deluxe veranda suite (entry level) which was amazing in terms of size and facilities. The bed was exceptionally comfortable, and setting area and bathroom were More excellent too. This was also our first balcony experience and while the weather wasn't fantastic for the balcony, we loved it.
Food in main dining room was exceptional, as too it was at outside lunch buffet and Signatures restaurant. We always eat well on our holidays but this was another level
The all inclusive aspect was brilliant, no signing bits of paper - just totally relaxed and no hassle.
We didn't attend any shows or take part in any onboard activities as not really our thing. We did several free tours which varied in quality but overall coordination aspect was good. Only negative was shocking immigration in St Petersberg, not sure why so many cruises dock there when they make it so hard for people to get in
Overall excellent 5* but I guess the all inclusive aspect is how they justify the 6* marketing. If I was being critical the only real thing I could say is that the service wasn't what I was expecting. It was fine, but didn't wow us and that's what we thought we'd get with 6*
For the price you couldn't fault it. All in as a package (space, all inclusive, excursions etc) it competes well with any cruise line so don't be put off by headline prices! Less
