Why Choose Voyager of the Seas?
  • One of the most family-friendly ships at sea
  • Refurbished in 2014 with new dining and 'virtual balcony' cabins
  • Ice skating, rock-climbing and a surfing simulator

Voyager of the Seas Overview

In 1999, when Royal Caribbean's 3,114-passenger Voyager of the Seas entered service as the largest cruise ship in the world, it was heralded as the most revolutionary vessel ever built, forever changing the world of cruising with such never-before-seen features as an ice skating rink/TV studio/concert arena, rock-climbing wall, in-line skating track, horizontal atrium (now known as the Royal Promenade), and inside cabins with a view.

The rock-climbing walls are now aboard every Royal Caribbean ship, and the ice skating rink and other features can also be enjoyed on the line's other four Voyager-class ships, as well as on the line's newer classes of ships, but Voyager of the Seas is still mind boggling, memorable and exciting. The ship underwent an $80-million refit in October 2014, adding several other signature facilities, such as a FlowRider surfing simulator, "virtual balconies" on inside cabins, 3D movies and several new dining options.

Royal Caribbean generally appeals to a broad range of folks of all ages -- but with one characteristic in common: This ship is designed for the activity-minded. It also attracts a high percentage of families. When sailing in Australia (November through April), the majority of passengers are locals.
