Voyager of the Seas Overview

Editor Rating
4.5
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.

It also attracts a high percentage of families. When sailing in Australia (November through April), the majority of passengers are locals.

This is our 2nd Cruise with RCI. We went for the refurbished Voyager of the seas. It was only a 3 night cruise so we decided to go for an inside cabin, for the ship was sold out. The cabin was clean and the attendant was very helpful and polite ... Read more
I have done a few reviews of the 12 cruises we have done & always focused on the positive with a few niggles. After reading negative reviews lately of the Voyager I was sure it was from people who are too picky. Unfortunately I was wrong. We ... Read more
