Additional details

Sail Date: Oct 2011
Cabin: Grand Suite

We were just on the Voyager of the Seas' seven night Adriatic Cruise. Ports were Venice, Koper, Ravenna, Bari, and Dubrovnik.

STATEROOM: Grand Suite, worth every penny! The room was very spacious with plenty of closet space. The bathroom had two double sinks and the tub had two retractable wash lines for hanging up laundry. (We traveled with carry-on luggage only so yes, I did have to do a little bit of washing in the sink!) #1324 was on the hump so our balcony was wider than most. We had one lounge sun chair and a table and chair set-up,which we used every morning as we had breakfast on our balcony.

ENTERTAINMENT: very enjoyable shows each evening. The singers were particularly talented. The Elton John tribute was excellent. We also saw the ice show--don't miss this; it's spectacular. Lounge music was good throughout the ship also though I wish the volume wasn't quite as loud. It's hard to carry on a conversation over the music.

Cabin Review

Grand Suite

Cabin GS

Grand Suite 1324, Voyager of the Seas. This cabin is on the hump so the balcony is wider than most. There's plenty of space and ample storage, both drawers and closets (which had more than enough hangers). Although situated by the elevators, there was no noise. The only fault we could find is that as of October 2011, the upholstery (chairs and loveseat) needs a good cleaning or even a reupholstering. The bed was very comfortable with excellent bed linens. The bathroom tub had two retractable clothes lines if you felt like doing any hand washing.

Port Reviews

Venice

In Venice there's a photo opportunity at every corner. We bought a vaporetto pass and enjoyed "cruising" the Grand Canal and visiting Burano and Murano Islands, the former being our favorite. Being in Burano was like being in a box of crayons. So colorful! We appreciated how easy it was to walk out of the ship and into the city. It's literally a ten minute walk to the train station where you can buy a vaporetto pass if you'd like.

Bari

There's a local bus at the port which will take you to the train station downtown. You pay about 70 cents when you board. From the train station we took the local train to the charming town of Polignano a Mare,where we spent the afternoon exploring. Our brother- and sister-in-law, who were on the cruise with us, stayed in Bari for the afternoon. They said they had a wonderful time sightseeing.

Dubrovnik

The arrival into the port of Dubrovnik is spectacular! Don't miss. We actually did not get to see the city as we had a private excursion arranged. We spent the day exploring the hillside towns north of Dubrovnik and the coastline as well. Croatia is an incredibly beautiful country and very unspoiled. We visited a winery and bought a bottle of cherry brandy. Delicious!
