Best Family Vacation Ever
Our family just returned from a New Orleans spring break cruise on the Voyager of the Seas. Collectively, our family decided this was our best cruise and vacation ever! The cruise was not without its problems, but we truly enjoyed our time on the ship
This is our 5th cruise on Royal Caribbean and our second on Voyager (previously in 2008 out of Galveston). Because of our schedules, 2 family members drove to New Orleans from Dallas and 2 flew out the morning of the cruise.
Room was quiet. Had plumbing problems in this particular room throughout our cruise. Service was great.
Our first port was Falmouth. The new port complex was very nice and we found some pretty good prices in the stores. This is definitely an upgrade from Montego Bay. We took advantage of a non cruise line excursion from Jamaica for a Day. We spent the day at the Rose Hall Hilton. The excursion while a little pricey, was top notch. The hotel and the beach were beautiful, the hotel staff bent over backwards to be helpful, and the food from all inclusive food and beverage package was one of the best meals we had the entire week! This was without a doubt the best shore excursion we have ever done!
We spent the second day shopping in Grand Cayman. We have enjoyed the wonderful Seven Mile Beach in the past, but decided to take a break from the sun for the day. The shopping in Grand Cayman is excellent. My daughters were pleased to purchase Longchamps purses tax and duty free. Our highlight of the week was a visit to the Guy Harvey gallery and store. Dr. Harvey was visiting the store that day. We were able to get him to personally autograph several prints we purchased and had a chance to personally visit with him. It was very refreshing to meet such a famous person, yet find him very approachable and really appreciative for coming to his store studio. It was truly an amazing day.
