I was not planning to post a review until I read a recent 3 star review which I felt was inaccurate. We recently spent 5 weeks on a Sydney to Hong Kong cruise that was initially plagued by problems but then turned into exactly the experience we had hoped for despite the issues caused by local problems--traffic.

We boarded Voyager in Sydney and it was a breeze; the sail out from the harbor was as advertised, fabulous. We spent 3 days in Sydney, courtesy of Regent-no longer available-which allowed us to begin to understand the national culture. The commentary as we sailed out therefore helped.

No sooner had we left the harbor than the captain announced we would be sailing into inclement weather. Boy was he right. Within 4 hours we were in the beginnings of a cyclone which worsened over the next day. We arrived in Brisbane reasonably on time but our wonderful shore excursion was cancelled because of the weather. After a much less attractive bus tour we were told we must leave Brisbane the next morning and then head for a protected anchorage for a 24 hr wait. Having sailed through a worse hurricane in Chile on SS I was surprised by this decision and it proved to be costly.

Would choose it again in a heartbeat. Beds, space, bathroom, layout all get A+
