I sailed on the Voyager from 7/29 through 8/7 with my daughter (15) and my son(12), along with a group of friends and family, totaling 29 people. I played a big part in the planning of this trip and all of the posters on Cruise Critic went a long way toward helping us all with our cruise, so thank you for all of your input.
Embarking -- This went pretty smooth. We arrived at Cape Liberty around 11:30 or 12:00 and were on the ship by about 1:00. I did notice some people lingering after the Bermuda/Canada reroute that were not pleased and my heart went out to them. It had to be quite disappointing.
Rooms -- We stayed in the Promenade rooms on deck 7 midway in the ship and we were all delighted. Yes the rooms are small, but they are sufficient. A great time that I gathered from CC was to buy the hanging shelves for the closet (7.99 at Target), because drawer space is somewhat limited. Noise from the Promenade was never an issue, at least not on the 7th floor, although I was downstairs during the parade, which I gather you can hear if you're in the room. I was somewhat disappointed with our room steward, Frank, who barely did his job. He was pleasant, but incompetent. We had no special requests, but he was somewhat lacking in just getting the room clean in general.
