This was the second time my husband and I took a cruise on Voyager, and I have to say, this trip was NOT as memorable (in a good way, at least) as our first trip!
FOOD: We ate breakfast and lunch every day in the Windjammer Cafe, and it was mediocre. The lunch choices weren't too great, and after 5 days of pasta with sauce for lunch, I switched over to pizza. Breakfast was OK, but it seemed the food was too greasy, so I went with more of a continental breakfast after about 2-3 days. We ate dinner each night in La Boehme dining room. Our waiter (Nicky) was fantastic, but on our first cruise, our waiter Mercia was even better because he had more of a sense of humor. Our assistant waiter and bar attendant learned our names and what we preferred for bread/drinks, but I don't think Nicky did. Here's my major complaint with the main dinner: WHAT'S WITH ALL THE DUCK ON THE MENU? Did a flock fly overhead, and someone shot them all down?! Honest to God, there was duck, in one form or another, probably 5 out of 9 nights on the menu. Not ONCE was there any entree featuring ham, very few with pork (and no pork tenderloin, not even once!), and no dishes with turkey until the last night. Enough with the duck already. However, I tried each and every one of the cold soups (fruit based), and they were all out of this world. Made me feel a little healthier, before eating the steak and chicken off the alternative menu 5 out of 9 nights!
STATEROOM: We booked this trip through Royal Caribbean online (ourselves), and when we booked it, didn't really realize that our room (on the 2nd deck) had an adjoining door to the neighbors. There was NO insulation on the door, and we could hear every single word these people screamed at their twin children (". . .born 6 minutes apart. . .") throughout the entire cruise. Their loud, obnoxious voices woke us up every single morning at 7:00 am like clockwork, and whenever we were in the room taking a nap in the afternoon, they seemed to show up about 10 min. after we fell asleep, and they turned their TV on loud and shouted at each other over the volume. Complaints to security and the main desk seemed to go no where, and I have a strong feeling that our neighbors knew it was US calling. Our room attendant was very nice (Mark), and gave us anything we asked for. The room was always cleaned in record time, and if we ran out of something (like toilet paper, for example), it was brought to us very quickly. At least THAT part of the room was great!
