Overall, this cruise (our 4th on RCCL), was usual Royal Caribbean fare. Nice ship, good food, friendly staff and no surprises. We booked this cruise through an Internet agency and never had a better experience.
Embarking- Since we live 25 miles from Bayonne,this was easy for us to get to,however,once you get to the entrance of Cape Liberty,you are greeted by old buildings, even older roadways and a plethora of arrows and crossing guards moving you into the correct line drop off, parking and jitney ride. I thought we were on a Disney ride. Not the best experience,but we were on the ship within an hour. If cruise ships are going to use this port, they better invest in the infrastructure now!
Ship- The Voyager of the Seas is truly a marvel. Once aboard, you will feel as if you are in large resort. The layout is cruiser friendly and even the first timer will find it easy to move around and find their way around. Deck 5, the Promenade, connects the theatre on one end and the restaurants on the other. The shops lined both side as did some of the 19 bars onboard. Our favorite was the Champagne bar, expert bartending by Sebastian and great selection of spirits.
