Ship Facts: Voyager of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Voyager of the Seas Deck Plans
After the fog
We cruised on the January 27 trip out of Galveston. The fog caused a delay getting on. We were stalled in traffic for 2.5 hours on the street from the bridge to the cruise docks. Then after we stood in line for an hour, were checked in only to find standing room only for 3 hours. They stopped letting people in for awhile as the room was getting too full. My 80 year old parents were exhausted with no place to sit down but the floor. We got an empty paper cup and filled it from the drinking fountain, luckily we had granola bars in our bag. We finally inched our way to the ship and found our rooms with ease and had a supper in the Windjammer buffet.

The food was not the quality or selection as we had on the Holland America Ships, but there was something everyone liked at each meal. We ate in the dining room on three of the at-sea nights. The Windjammer buffet attendants were very attentive and helpful. In Cozumel the four of us hired an airconditioned van at the dock with a driver/guide that took us all over the island for $30 per person. He took us to see anything we wanted to see at our own speed. This was about 4.5 hours. At Roatan we rented a car for $25 per person at the dock and did the same sightseeing thing..saw the iguana refuge, beaches, scenery, etc for 4 hours. He took us shopping downtown, and brought us home when we were ready. We spent the afternoon relaxing on the ship. We took the ship's excursion to Dzibilchaltun for 4 hours. It was interesting, the guide tried very hard to entertain and inform us about the ruins and the countryside coming and going. It was a hot day and they gave everyone a bottle of water. The buses were comfortable and airconditioned.

The Promenade was a nice touch with the free coffee, pizza and cookies in the Promenade Cafe and the shops along the way. Our room was on the 3rd deck which didn't go clear through the ship, so we usually went to the Promenade and walked through the ship and then went up the elevator to the dining. With over 3000 people on board, the only time I felt crowded was getting on and off the ship. The internet was slow, so added up quickly. This was our 7th cruise. We would probably use RCCL again to a different port.
