Sail Date: May 2009
Cabin: Grand Suite

What a vacation!  We were looking for a port-intensive cruise to maximize our time in Europe and the Best of Europe itinerary more than met our expectations in that regard.  Since the cruise was 11 whole days, rather that review port-by-port, I'll hit the highlights of the main categories.

Accommodations:  We splurged on a Grand Suite and were not disappointed!  The bathroom is very luxurious, the bed and linens great, and the space and balcony were awesome.  It was especially fun to make bets on the port captain's success jumping off the ship to his waiting boat after each port.  It's also a great place to relax with an adult beverage when dulling the pain of an injury from 2000 year old rocks.  Don't ask.  The cabin steward was fabulous and we loved how he learned our schedule within about a day.  Never had him bother us when we were sleeping in.  Our one constructive critique is that we would have loved a walk-in closet instead of the different closet cabinets.

Ship:  Voyager just got out of dry dock and overall the ship seriously impressed!  There was a bit of work going on resurfacing pool and sport decks, but the lousy weather the first few days kept all but the craziest swimmers away.  It really didn't bother us any, and the solarium had no construction.  If you've never been on a mega ship, it's awesome.  We loved the atmosphere and the elegance.  Spa was nice - great port specials on our cruise that we took advantage of.  Not overly in love with the fitness classes offered - those were just okay.

Cabin Review

Grand Suite

Awesome bathroom with double sinks and a real bathtub.  Spacious cabin with king bed, couch, chairs, coffee table, and bar.  Closets plentiful and good storage.  Great balcony!
