As a first time cruisers and vegetarians, we had some good times on Voyager of the seas from Galveston to Jamaica, Grand Cayman and Cozumel from 1/16 to 1/23.
Parking and Embarkation: We parked our car at the EZ Cruising Parking lot and got a shuttle to the Cruise Terminal. We got some luggage tags and checked in our bags. We stood in line for around 20 mins to pass thru security check and then went to the ticketing agent to get our sea passes. From there, it took us around 10 minutes to get onboard. The first sight of the ship was that it was huge! Our inside stateroom was pretty small with a tiny bathroom. We put our carry-on luggage in the room and went out to the Cafe Promenade to get some snacks and then attended the ship briefing at the muster station (D17).
Ship sails away: The wind was cold and it took forever for the muster to commence (later than the 4 pm schedule). We later found out that the dancers in the shows were the muster leaders! The drill ended at 4:30 pm and we went to the 12th floor to see the ship pull off the pier. The winds were cold so we just loitered around the Royal Promenade.
