Bigger is not better

Sail Date: December 2012
Destination: Australia & New Zealand
Embarkation: Sydney (Australia)
We have returned recently from our cruise to N.Z. on Voyager of the Seas - We were less than impressed with the overall condition of this ship - Musty, stained carpets, mould in the bathroom (shower) etc. - to say nothing about the "sewage odour" in the corridors!!
we also thought the supervision of "hand sanitising" could have been better taking into account the Noro virus on board.

Because of understaffing, wait staff in dining rooms were literally running between tables limiting the opportunity for any extended contact with them - this was something we particularly enjoyed on Rhapsody. The quality of food was in our opinion somewhat less than what we experienced on our two previous cruises on Rhapsody.

The inadequate seating in the coffee purchasing area of the Promenade did nothing to contribute to an enjoyable experience - We had to search the bar areas for a seat - always requiring carrying our coffee some distance - frequently to another deck. The More complementary pastries we so enjoyed on Rhapsody were replaced by a very ordinary choice which became unobtainable at 10.30am every day - why????

As indicated in our title we do not think Bigger is Better - if you want to go to a shopping mall you go to your local regional shopping centre - we were looking for a relaxed cruise. Perhaps Voyager is aimed at a different age group but she is not for us. Less

Cabin review: L6473 Interior Stateroom

Bathroom was barely adequate - shower recess extremely small (and we're only 60+ kg's) - We were not impressed with the odour that was in our room from time to time - (not nice!!) but our cabin attendant bent over backwards to try to rectify these shortcomings - this is an interconnecting cabin and noise transmits easily from adjoining cabin through connecting door ( not good for privacy or intimacy)
