Voyager of the Seas Cruise Review by ppcp
- Sail Date: April 2016
- Destination: Asia
We have cruised with Royal Caribbean on quite a few occasions, but this was the first time on Voyager. We were struck by the size of the ship, as the largest we had sailed on previously was Radiance of the Seas, which we really loved. Voyager is that bit newer, and as it has had an update recently, is in great condition. This was the first time we have had a Balcony room, and it was great! Unfortunately, it has spoilt us for future cruises, as I wouldn't like to go back to an inside stateroom. We were on deck 7, and being able to sit out on your balcony and have a cuppa, or read a book was great.
service on the ship was excellent, no matter where you went, especially the dining room, where the food was delicious. Our stateroom attendant was wonderful, and nothing was too much trouble. We went to a few of the shows, and particularly enjoyed "Mercury Rising" which was a Queen take off, but with some comedy thrown in. Highlight of the entertainment was the ice skating show, which was absolutely wonderful. None of us went on the flow rider. I was tempted, but had a bad back at the time, so chickened out. I will defiantly have a go next cruise.
We visited Brisbane, where we used the shuttle into the city, and took a cruise on the "River Cat" which was nice. Next was Darwin where we took a short tour, and saw a few places we hadn't been to before. Next was Port Klang in Malaysia, and a very long bus trip into KL. certainly worth a look, although there was lots of smoke around from a neighboring country burning their rain Forrest. Lastly to Singapore, where we had an extra night on board. We stayed a few extra nights in the Orchard Hotel, and really enjoyed out time in Singapore before flying home. We enjoyed this cruise so much, we booked on board for a Sydney to Fiji trip this November on Voyager again, deck 6 this time. We loved Voyager, although my mate and I missed the pool tables on Radiance! My only criticism would be that we rarely saw the Captain around the ship, and the commentary from the bridge was lacking when at times when it would have been interesting to know where we were in Torres Straight, and passing Bali.
Apart from that, we had a great time. Sea conditions couldn't have been better with hardly a ripple the whole trip. Well done RCL !

noise. The sea was so smooth, that we hardly felt a thing. The room is fairly close to the lifts, and a pretty good location. I liked the showers with a solid sliding door rather than the curtains on Radiance. Nice room, all good.

Brisbane RiverWe cruised on the "River Cat" which is part of the public transport system. Was very relaxing and enjoyable. Used the shuttle from the ship to get into townView All 9 Brisbane River Reviews
City TourThis was only a short tour a of the City, but our driver was an indigenous local, who was fantastic. He even played the didgeridoo for us. Dropped off in town for some shopping, and shuttle back to the ship.View All 10 City Tour Reviews
City TourIt's a long trip into KL from the port, and our bus had seen a few too many KM's, however the guide was great, and made it fun. We had a good tour of the city, and ended up at the towers, where we had lunch in the food court with the locals. Good trip, and pretty tired when we got backView All 32 City Tour Reviews
Petronas Twin TowersWe didn't go to the top for a photo, and there was a lot of smoke haze around, and visibility was limited.View All 19 Petronas Twin Towers Reviews
Changi MuseumThis museum relates to the Japanese occupation of Singapore during the second world war. It is a very moving experience especially for an Aussie. A must if you visit Singapore.View All 13,326 Changi Museum Reviews
Night SafariUnfortunately a public holiday, and very crowded, but the tour we took got us past most of the crowd. The tram ride was good, and you see lots of animals. We took one of the walks which was great fun, but ran out of time before we could do the others. Had the most expensive ice cream I have ever had there!!! Check the prices before you order :)View All 10 Night Safari Reviews
Orchard RoadWe had a night on the ship in Singapore before we disembarked, and took a taxi into Chinatown, and the markets. After leaving the ship, we had 3 nights in the Orchard Hotel, and had fun in Singapore.View All 7 Orchard Road Reviews
