Ship Facts: Voyager of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Voyager of the Seas Deck Plans
Voyager - Great ship. Lots of untapped potential.
Pros: Massive size, plenty of privacy, 3 pools, 7 hot tubs, great promenade, outstanding waitress and head waiter in dining room, good sized casino, the most beautiful granite urinal I have ever seen - gotta experience this for yourself...I'm not going to ruin it. Top notch gym and spa.

Cons: 1 Pool and 1 hot tub are supposed to be open 24/7 but all were closed the first night - even in the atrium which is mostly protected from high winds. Staff could have done a much better job at keeping these open all nights. Food was OK - better in dining room, buffet was barely OK (same exact salads every day - little to no variation...little creativity), poor seating management in buffet. Night club (The Vault) was a mess: sticky uneven wood floors that were difficult to walk on - not to mention dance on, holes in flooring under carpet that would make you twist your ankle, poor visibility, bartender/waiters had zero personality, weird furniture that was more suitable for a pre-school. This night club needs to be gutted and completely redone - including staff. It is the only dated item on the ship. Stay away from balcony staterooms on deck 6 as they have no glass. They are metal up to the rail so visibility is limited when laying down and looking out. Elevators are poorly located and the one way in/out creates massive traffic jams. Very long lines at guest relations. A special party for past guests offered all sorts of expensive drinks (alcohol) for free but one could not even get a non-alcoholic beverage without paying for it. What's up with that? Really poor judgement. Same ole boring act in the pub in the promenade every night (great the first night but quickly got boring). This really needs to be switched up.

Potential: The entire upper rear of the ship was mostly unused. Great space to create parties and reasons for guests to visit. The top level dance club would have rocked if a wide selection of music was offered.

All-in-all, a great ship that I would definitely go on again. Despite the cons, you'll like this ship. It's good, but could be GREAT!
