I have been on 15 previous cruises, but this is my first time on an RCL ship. I chose it mostly because the port is nearby (Boston). I enjoy cruises these days because it's a real vacation; I don't have to figure out WHAT I'm going to make for lunch and what for dinner. I'm so sick of that! Also, to be entertained by music or karaoke or whatever is such a pleasure. Real people, not the usual night of TV.
Entertainment: Jersey Boys production, ice skating shows, singing & dancing productions, a comedian. All fun. The Voyager orchestra was top notch. For me, they were the best part of the cruise.
Dining: Food in the Tradewinds buffet was varied, international & generally quite good. Like it was made by a good home cook. Food in the main dining room (beautiful decor!) was sometimes not what I expected. For instance, offered on a lunch menu was what I expected to be a lamb gyro (pita bread, shaved lamb with a white tzatziki sauce). Instead it was lamb stewed with tomatoes, served on a thick pita bread. One thing I recommend is Bananas Foster, which sent me into another dimension, the sauce was so good!
Unfortunately, the guaranty cabin I was assigned (3035 on deck 3) was right under Giovanni's Restaurant. Some parts are carpeted, but some areas are tile. Off & on in the middle of the night (12 - 4 AM), the night shift cleaning crew would make a racket like dragging tables from here to there and putting chairs down loudly. I did complain, even calling in the middle of the night. I have always chosen my own cabin, carefully looking to see what is above, below & nearby. This time I booked at the last minute (to join a
friend) and this is what I got. RCL has offered me 10% off my next cruise.
There isn't much to see where the tender drops you off. I just walked around.
Took the hop on & off bus excursion. Went to the Maritime Museum where they have a Titanic exhibit and the 1917 explosion exhibit. Worth a visit.
