Voyager of the Seas Cruise Review by roaks
We arrived at the cruise terminal in Galveston by car at the designated time for boarding to begin. Traffic was barely crawling into the terminal area. It turned out that the Voyager of the Seas had been delayed several hours by fog, so when we arrived at 1:00, passengers from the last cruise were still disembarking. After 2+ hours in line, we were on board and our cabins were ready. There were 5 of us traveling together, my wife and I were on our first Royal Caribbean cruise, we have cruised 3 times on NCL, and our grown daughter and her 2 friends were on their first cruises. Our cabin was a Promenade cabin. It was very comfortable, quiet and clean. Our cabin attendant did an outstanding job. Daughter and friends had a regular inside cabin which was a little crowded, satisfactory.The ship is beautiful, spacious, and clean. There is always something to do and space is always available.The ship has a lot of very talented musicians, in addition to the entertainers who perform in the theater. Cruise director and his staff were by far the best we have ever encountered and they were not driven to making announcements every 10 minutes.The food was available in several venues and was always good, if not excellent. Service was always excellent and friendly.One feature we enjoyed especially was the Solarium, a partially covered area aft of the main pool area on Deck11. The Solarium included a pool and 2 large jacuzzi tubs, as well as a bar and plenty of seating along the sides and around the pool. The Solarium is an adults only area, although on this cruise there were almost no children.The ship stopped in 4 ports, King's Wharf, Bermuda, Punta Delgada, Azores, Cobh, Ireland, and Cherborg, France, with the final destination being Southampton, UK. We made a big mistake in not booking excursions in advance. It was very difficult booking any onboard as there were so few left to choose from. We did go ashore in each port and enjoyed our visit in each place. Cherborg turned out to be our favorite as well as a very pleasant surprise.Disembarkation was very quick and easy as we took the express, carry your own luggage off the ship option.For all of us this was a very good, very enjoyable cruise. We were impressed with the ship and with Royal Caribbean.

Cabin location was very good. It was quiet even though it had a window overlooking the Promenade. Room layout was functional. Best of all, the bed was very comfortable.
