Let me start with my cruise history. The Voyager of the Seas was my first Royal Caribbean experience but I have cruised three other times. One time each with Carnival and Celebrity and once on a small ship no longer in service. We are a family of 4 with my kids DS 11 and DD 14. Over all I would rate Royal Caribbean just where I figured it would fall, right in between Celebrity and Carnival. I am going to lump the first and last day together and then give my thoughts on everything else.
This was the reposition cruise of the Voyager of the Seas from Bayonne, NJ to Miami with stops at Labadee and Aruba.
We left our house at about 3:30 pm on November 16 and headed off to Newark, NJ to stay at the Best Western because we had a parksleepflycruise deal. For $155 we got a hotel room, transfers, breakfast, and parking for 10 nights. The hotel is right across from the airport but is not very attractive, but the rooms were bigger than expected and clean enough for one night. The breakfast was good with a wide selection of food.
