This was our second time on the Voyager, again in the beautiful Med and although we had visited just about every port on our Monte Carlo to Venice journey many times before, we enjoyed the beauty and weather and culture of these very interesting areas and had a wonderful vacation. We found a great last minute offer and booked about one month prior to departure.
Just like last year: the ship was in beautiful condition, our Concierge Suite (1018) was lovely and comfortable (although some extra storage areas would be appreciated), the cabin service was excellent, embarkation and disembarkation were a breeze, shore excursions were well organized (even if I still dislike daily bus tours) with lots of choice, the entertainment was still mediocre at best (like all small luxury ships), and the crew tried very hard and aimed to please.
What was better than last year was, firstly, the service. While things seemed disorganized last year onboard, this year all staff members that we dealt with were engaged, happy and worked very hard to accommodate all of the passengers and their needs and wants. Bravo! All requests were handled efficiently and pleasantly, and, this year, there was no problem getting reservations at specialty restaurants - the staff worked with us and did what they could; that is all that one can ask.
Lovely suite, excellent location near the front elevators, fast access to the pool deck. The only negative is that their is occasional noise when furniture is being moved on the pool deck.
Always lovely and enjoyable. This time we stayed at the Fairmont pre cruise and just enjoyed the town and the atmosphere.
Good walking tour of a lovely town.
Good Gaudi tour.
Sorrento is beautiful, never got there.
We docked in Catania instead of Taormina. Very good tour of Taormina and the Ancient Greek Theatre.
Lovely drive and Budva is worth seeing - very good guide.
