Awesome Italy on Voyager
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Entertainment on the ship was very good. Our headliner show was a group called the East Coast Boys. They are a Frankie Valli knock off and they are fantastic. Do not miss this show if it's offered. We also saw the ice show on board - it was wonderful - also not to be missed! The singer in the piano bar was good as well as the guy in the pub. I just wish they would get rid of the whole karaoke thing - it's getting old and most of the people cannot sing at all.
Activities on the ship were good - they kept everyone busy, although with long touring days - they could of done some of the nighttime parties a bit earlier so you could enjoy them. Having to get up at 6:00 for a 10 hour tour, kind of makes you not want to go to a 70's street party at 11:30. We disembarked in Venice. RCCL took care of our transfers to our hotel. It was quick and easy and we were off the ship by 8:45 a.m., grabbed our luggage and breezed thru the customs booth. They basically just checked our passports and nodded us thru. We spent one night at the Hotel Carlton on the Grand Canal. This was a wonderful place to stay. Close to the water buses and taxis and gondola rides. Shopping was right across the canal along with many cafes to choose from. Just a fantastic and convenient place to stay. Breakfast was included so we ate well before being taken to the airport. The Venice airport has very long lines, so plan on standing in one for an hour or so. We flew from Venice to Frankfurt and then on to Chicago. Good flights.
So in summary, it was a truly magical cruise on a great ship. Great service, smiling crew members and an all out enjoyable experience. Less
Cabin review: E27634 Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony
We were on deck 7 in cabin 7634. Room was spacious but the balcony seemed smaller than we have seen on Voyager class ships. Ample closet and drawer space. Seemed like a pretty quiet location and very convenient for elevators and stairs. We were across from a crew storage space but we never saw the door open. Some rust showing on the balcony and balcony glass was never cleaned, although the glass doors were always clean. Big C was our stateroom attendant and did a wonderful job. Lighting was great in this cabin.Read All Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony (E2) Reviews >>
