Run from Cyclone Winston

Voyager of the Seas Cruise Review by Astro Boy

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Feb 2016
  • Destination: Australia & New Zealand
  • Cabin Type: Interior Stateroom

Cyclone Winston took a 180 degree turn as we departed from Sydney and headed back to Fiji, whilst we started our journey to Isle of Pines.

Three days later we had our visit to Isle of Pines just as the cyclone started to hit Fiji, so we went to Noumea rather than Mystery Island, then off to Brisbane away from cyclone.

So our trip was slightly different but the captain of the ship was excellent, he informed everyone what was happening daily and did a video with maps etc and put on TV with cruise director to justify all that was happening.

Besides that the journey was fine and we didn't have any bad weather or high seas, just a few swells and some wind, but nothing much to spoil the trip.

Was on Voyager a few months back and much the same as then, but no cook ups around the pool area and only last night had prawns at bistro, last time had much more selection.

Entertainment staff were excellent and made most events fun to attend.

This was only an 8 night trip and had no problems besides cyclone avoidance, entertainment was average ( had seen most acts before ).

Overall was pleasant trip and crew were quite friendly and ship was good.

Clean and functional, no problems


Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Sydney (Australia)

Live in Sydney but love scenery around Circular Quay as we leave.

Isle of Pines (New Caledonia)

It was very windy. Have been many times so just walked around taking photo's and swam at main beach. Noted many blue bottles on beach near sacred rock. Lots of bites from sea lice in the water to most people, but only small stings.

Noumea

Been many times before. Just went for walk up the hill to lookout and to the large church, then walking around town. Now has two duty free alcohol shops, both slightly cheaper than the ship, but not as cheap as Port Vila.

Brisbane

Took the shuttle bus into city from Grain terminal ( about 40 minutes each way ) cost was $15 US dollars ( about $22 Aust round trip ), so price was OK. Met family in town and just went for the free ferry ride ( city hopper) up and down the river, then walked around city and riverfront, all good.
