Why Choose Voyager of the Seas?
  • Pro: Inside cabins have "virtual balconies," offering ocean views in rooms that normally have none
  • Con: No consistency in dining room and buffet, food choices ranged from poor to great
  • Bottom Line: A good choice for anyone seeking a fun and active cruise experience

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.

Voyager of the Seas Fellow Passengers

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.

During the day, dress is casual. Evenings are either casual, smart casual or formal. On casual nights, suggested attire is sports shirts and slacks for men and sundresses or pants for women. On smart casual evenings, men should don jackets and tie, with women wearing dresses or pantsuits. On the one or two formal nights per cruise, men can choose from tuxedos or suits and ties, while woman usually wear cocktail dresses.

This is my 8th cruise with RCI. First one was back in 1997 on Majesty. Over the years I have seen a lot of changes, some not really for the better. It felt a bit like a Butlins at sea at times. I picked this cruise for the itinerary and ... Read more
