  3. Voyager of the Seas
We chose this cruise as it was travelling to Port Vila and Mare and we had not travelled to either of these ports before, we had also been on Voyager before and enjoyed the ship. We were blown away by the level of service this time around, we both think that because it is nearing the end of the Aussie season that the staff had their routines on point. Our cabin attendant Jonathon and all the baristas in the promenade were amazing. We also found all the staff at guest services, Windjammer and the bars were amazing. We went to both Izumi and Giovanni’s Table, both were delicious, the sashimi and gnocchi with Gorgonzola sauce were particular standouts. We took the 3 pack dining package for $75 pp (us) and both felt it was good value. We would have preferred more movies in the theatre, there were only about 3 this trip, the others were poolside, which we find distracting with kids running around. Loads of trivia was available, oragami classes. We found the duty free was rubbish as we could get cheaper perfume and make up in Australia. Our cabin was a slight disappointment, it was a promenade, inside cabin. Unfortunately it was an adjoining room and not completely sound proofed around adjoining door. We could here them talking, watching tv etc and they could hear us. It didn’t ruin the holiday, but won’t be getting a cabin there again. We loved Port Vila, we took a private tour with Tony Manusale (who was amazing) and visited the blue lagoon, turtle bay, waterfall and duty free shopping. We would both like to go back. We also loved snorkelling in Jenek Bay in Lifou, it is beautiful, it costs $15 pp but is worth it compared to other areas. We are both over Noumea and find it quite dirty and Mare was a beautiful looking island but not a lot to do. Overall a great cruise but we might leave the South Pacific for a little while.

Service A+

Cabin Review

Cabin 6259
Cabin was good, you can hear the music from the promenade, but it didn’t bother us. The room is not sound proofed to adjoining room.
