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, three Freedom-class ships and pair of Oasis-class vessels, but Voyager of the Seas is still mind boggling, memorable and exciting -- isn't that what they say about the first of anything this revolutionary?

Embarkation was as expected at Fremantle - disappointing - as per previous times it is a shabby facility, disorganised and slow, 2 hours wait is a bit much when you hear people can get on in 15 minutes at other ports in Oz.
