16 of us just sailed on voyager of the seas on a 3 night sampler.We had been on the 1 night in novemeber 2013 and vowed never to go with this ship again but we did. We had read all the previous negative reveiws and thought what have we done . Well we were suprised as all the staff were very good.Ebarkation was very quick on the ship in about 20 mins. But cant see where 80 million went only to take out a lot of the lounge spaces and put in more cabins. Far too many people,no lounges to sit and have a nice drink as could not get in them,one of us would have to go up to Anchor lounge an hour before to get a seat for pre dinner drinks. Anytime dining was a disgrace i booked our 2 talbles of 8 2 months before sailing and then went straight to dining room to confirm and it was all wrong were told it would be fixed when we got to dinner we were given 1 table of 10 and 1 of 6 away from each other needles to say we fought them and got it changed and was ok for the 3 nights. The food in the Saffire dining room at night was outstanding and we had the best waiters ever well done Ben 10 our waiter. The drink waiter after the first night just came to our tables with the drinks he knew we had and put them in front of us. we had the premium drink package and it was fantastic, but too many lines at all bars to get a drink, very few waiters serving drinks out at the pool. Generally not enough staff foe example go to dining room fro breakfast takes at least 2 hours. As i said earlyier we had a great time but we will nevser sail on this ship again not a patch on Rhapsody and Radiance need to take heed RCCL or Princess will beat you as we will stay with them more rooms to use.

My friends were going on the 1/2/10 CTN, so we decided to give it a try, having had pleasant past cruises with NCL. I could rant and rave for a long time but I will just list my major complaints. 1. Way overpriced for what's included. Whats included is not much, forcing you to pay for extras-overcrowded main dining = high priced optional restaurants. 2. Too many people, many of whom could care less for common courtesy.For instance the Number system for boarding. We happened to have a #20 due to a disability; people with higher numbers(#25 you know who you are) cut the lines so they could get on-board ahead of their turn; And the big problem was that NCL staff were not enforcing the number sequence procedure. 3. NCL advises call Access Desk if extra help needed for disability; Called and was assured help available with boarding for wheelchair bound passenger; no one available and request of helper personnel resulted in "talk with supervisor" answers from NCL personnel at embarkation; had to push wife up gangplank myself with breathing problems and past heart attack. 4. Welcome aboard is now an excuse to sell overpriced drinks - alcohol only available at outrageous prices; and solicitations for all extra charge services were rampant. 5.Show was OK, but again rude people showing up at the last minute and forcing their way to random open seats caused blocked views of the show for people who had arrived on time. 6.People, many with too many drinks under their belts, being obnoxious and loud at all hours of the night. 7. Poor service since they charge a per diam gratuity per person automatically which discourages individual accountability and rewarding for actual level on individual service. I am sure I could list more negative items, but lets just say if the CTN is supposed to make non-cruisers want to cruise, I think NCL does not have it's oars in the water. Read Less

We booked 2 balcony rooms...one for us and one for our teen aged grandsons who had never cruised before. The ship was truly beautiful...sophisticated elegance is how I would describe it's design and interior. Our staterooms were supposed to be adjoining but were not so we had to change room keys at guest relations as they would book one adult with one child in each room per their rules. The room was large enough for my wheelchair and oxygen concentrator. The bathroom was roomy with a curved glass shower door so you could even bend over to wash your feet without getting water all over the floor. Our room stewardess finally brought a small container for ice at 4 PM and the next night she didn't give us any at all. Room service was very slow...the boys ordered cookies and milk and they brought warm milk so they put it in the refrigerator. The buffet lunch was very good the first day on arrival but the next day's breakfast was cold, coffee tasted really bad and the orange juice was watered down. We had to take silverware off another table and get our own drinks as none of the attendants bothered to help us. Dinner in the main dining room was very slow and the food was not hot. We had reservations and they knew I was disabled but I had to walk all the way to the back of the room to our table. I was expecting to have some bottled water and cans of soda in our room but we had to drink water from the bathroom sink. The worst part of our cruise was that there was NO SMOKING on the balcony or anywhere but a few outdoor areas...The port side of the deck 5 had some chairs and ashtrays with a view of the life boats and the port side of the Mast Bar had standing room only most of the time. We were not told about the smoking when we booked the cruise. To top it off, I forgot to pack cigarettes for my husband! We thought we could buy them on board at the liquor store but because it was a 2 day cruise no cigarettes or alcohol were sold. One of the other passengers heard of my husband's plight and gave him 2 packs. The entertainment was very good both nights especially the Solstice aerial circus the second night. The comedian didn't come on til 11:45 so we missed him both nights. We enjoyed the jazz trio in the Ensemble Lounge both nights. We have traveled Celebrity twice before but the service, food and attitude of the employees was not up to par. There was no comment card in the room to tell them what they were doing right or wrong. I did not feel welcome like I have on other cruises. It was a lot of money for 2 days. I think we will stick to Princess and Royal Caribbean from now on. Read Less
