Embarkation in Barcelona was a breeze. Our cabin was exactly what we expected having stayed in a similar cabin on Adventure several times. Our cabin stewardess Daniella was outstanding! We are low maintenance and keep a tidy cabin, but she went above and beyond with her service. Our luggage arrived promptly. Windjammer for lunch only for embarkation. It was lousy and we always find that although the selection is vast the preparations are poor, food is lukewarm and it's hard to find a clean table in that venue. Our food and service in the Carmen dining room was very good. We chose late seating which was 9pm. We found it a bit late for us, but we prefer to have a set dining time and enjoy having the same waitstaff and table mates. We ate at Johnny Rockets and it was poor. We have enjoyed JR on Adventure and were puzzled by why the food quality and staffing suffered on Voyager. Portofino was excellent and the service was outstanding. We also enjoyed the snacks/desserts in the Cafe Promenade (it held us over until our 9pm dinner)
Entertainment- Jackie Scott the visiting singer was one of the best ship singers we have ever heard. She was unbelievably talented and we wish she could have preformed more than one night. We found the cruise director Mercedes just ok. I think she may have appealed to the Spanish speaking guests more than us. The comedian/juggler was lame. The Beatles show was pretty good and the Voyager stage show was just poor entertainment.
Ports- we enjoyed all of the ports very much. Barcelona was a first for us and we spent 3 nights there prior to the cruise. We really loved Barcelona and hope to return soon.
The Voyager is an excellent value, especially with the weak US dollar. It is not a luxury cruise, but it is very good service, food and accommodations for the price. We love the Mediterranean and highly recommend Voyager of the Seas as a way to visit this beautiful region of the world.
