Ship Facts: Voyager of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Voyager of the Seas Deck Plans
Well done again, RCCL
This was our 7th cruise, 6 on RCCL and one on Celebrity. We found Celebrity no improvement on RCCL, by the way.

My wife and I were again delighted with RCCL and had zero problems or unhappiness on the Voyager of Seas.

We found the main dining room food to be excellent with adequate entree choices. We could tell the menu was somewhat scaled back from previous RCCL cruises, but not to a fault. Our waiter, Hassine from Tunis and Iris, the assistant waiter were absolutely 1st class! Other reviewers gripped about the Windjammer food, but we could not find fault. Speaking of other reviews, we feel the positive reviews on Johnny Rockets were overstated. We expected freshly cut and breaded onion rings only to find run of the mill frozen rings and same with the boring french fries. The hamburgers were tasty, but not tasty enough to return there. The milk shake I had was wonderful.

Oh, I just remembered one negative: the coffee! Mygawd was it awful! Far, far too strong, for a guy who loves strong coffee. Bitter tasting and mostly nasty. Complaints were answered with a fresh serving, but the next night....same nasty stuff.

The head waiter's name escapes me, but he always stopped by to check on our service and food quality. Plus he would practice his dry sense of humor and jokes nightly to liven things up for us.

Our cabin steward, Elmer from Costa Rica was another gem. Unobtrusive with the ability to straighten up the cabin in our absence. Always cheerful.

We found 99% of the RCCL crew to be friendly, smiling, cheerful and helpful. Only one sourpuss: One of the kid program ladies snarled abit in public. Apparently she had her gut full of yelling, screaming kids.

Only downside was the wait of elevator service. Perhaps the Achilles' heel of a ship for over 3000 guests. Be prepared to wait longer than you would like.

Thanks for another excellent cruise, RCCL
