After reading many mediocre reviews, I had mixed feelings about boarding the Voyager of the Seas for a 9 night cruise to the Bahamas and Caribbean. Any hesitation I had was quickly put to rest, as I had one of the best cruise experiences of my life.
The ship is breathtaking and looks phenomenal for a vessel that has been in service for close to 6 years. Royal Caribbean has paid tremendous attention to detail. While the ship was completely full at 3500 passengers, I never felt as though I was crowded or overwhelmed. Despite some other reviews on here stating the contrary, there were ample lounge chairs by the pool, even on sea days. There is so much to do onboard, that 10 days wasn't enough to do it all! While partaking in the rock climbing or watching the ice skating show, you have to remind yourself that you're on a moving ship which in my opinion adds to the awe.
The food was outstanding in the main dining room. I had read that RCCL had really cut back on their food quality and variety of food, but my family and I never found this to be the case. The waitstaff was among the best we've experienced, and each night brought a new culinary treat. The windjammer and Johnny Rockets also provide good food. While Johnny Rockets now has a $3.95 surcharge per person, it is well worth it to watch the singing and dancing waiters who are eager to entertain.
