Heard there were a lot of fights and many passengers 'kicked off' but we didnt see anything. I have cruised with RCL twice now on Voyager and this time around the food, service and overall experience has greatly improved. Our dining room waiters and cabin steward were the highlight of the crew- absolutely awesome. A lot of the shows were not my cup of tea- but hats off to the dancers and singers- awesome voices and moves. Ice skate shows amazing. A lot of activities not my thing but there's heaps to choose from to keep you busy, or just relax- which is what I prefer. Ports of call more than most cruises I have been on, so a good variety of things to do ashore except Mare. Unfortunately due to the weather (and hoard of jelly fish) it wasn't safe to do anything, but mare has definitely upgraded the dock and market, so great to see. Have booked Ovation of the seas for Jan 2019, so excited to see all the extra activities onboard. Crew very attentitive in all areas. Promenade cabin 6305 in a perfect spot too. Got a great price. Booked all tours directly with locals before boarding- all ships are too expensive! Read Less

A lot of reviews of this ship tend to criticize its age and amenities, but as the Voyager is now 20 years old it stands to reason there's going to be rust in places. I mean its been exposed to salt water for 20 years so what do you expect, a pristine exterior. The ship was great, the room large by any standards (we had an owners suite that that is expected). The staff were brilliant. The food in the huge 3 storey dining room was outstanding every night. It was good if not better than a just about any restaurant I've ever been to and it was always served hot and fresh. How they manage this consistently day in and day out for this many people I don't know. The singalongs in the main dining room where everyone joined in were fabulous. If that couldn't bring a smile to your face then nothing could.The buffet in the windjammer was also outstanding and any criticisms of this are patently unwarranted and all the staff there do a magnificent job and the food was always hot and fresh. Certainly by the number of people there and if the size of their self servings is any guide, everyone on the ship enjoyed it even if they broke their scales when weighing themselves when they got back home! Missed out on a couple of ports due to a cyclone passing through Noumea which the captain thought it wise to avoid heading back home through the tail and I'm sure everyone on board thought that was a very good call. Internet is super expensive as were the drinks when factoring in the exchange rate for AU dollar against US dollar. I'll bet quite a people people got bill shock when they got home and didn't factor in the exchange rate. The crew actively tries to sell drink packages for the cruise for the first few days and a lot of people jumped on, but seriously, when one factors in the exchange rate, paying more than AUD$900 for 10 days of drinking is right up there. One would have to drink more than 10 beers everyday just to break even but it seems lots of people did get ahead. And that is the problem, for me anyway. as it appears RCI is targeting the big drinking, big eating guest and there were a lot of them on board. Maybe Bali not looking so tempting anymore? But to be fair the ship is big enough for just about anyone to find a nook to escape the boisterous crowd on the pool decks. Still overall, a positive experience as all staff were fantastic and the food was great the entertainment was excellent as was the trivia quiz and karaoke. The only issue for me is that targeting the bogan crowd is likely to turn away baby boomers of which there are now a serious number. But hey, if the hard drinking and partying crowd is were the profits are then you can't blame RCI for heading that way. Read Less

Although we are devoted Princess fans, particularly of Diamond Princess, we also like to go to Hawaii, stay a while and cruise back. Princess do not have a repositioning cruise that does this so we have been on 2 with RCI, and enjoyed them both. So much so we are going on Rhapsody again in September 2014. I kept reading about Voyager of the Seas, and the Boardwalk, so convinced my husband to go on a 14 night trip around New Zealand. It has 3600 passengers and every port we wanted to leave the ship, it was complete chaos. Most times only 1 point of disembarkation, and every one trying to get off at the same time, complete with cruise card plus additional photo ID made for a very uncomfortable time. Mobility impaired passengers were not well catered for, and there were no Enrichment lectures of any sort apart from a 1 hour talk about the history of Royal Caribbean. My husband was very disappointed. A friend who cruised in October 2013, 2 friends who were on it from Feb 4th to 13th, 2014, and us have all suffered respiratory problems which originated on the ship. Cabin was roomy. What we expect for an accessible cabin, except that it does not have remote door opening from inside as we had on Rhapsody or Radiance.Very difficult for people on scooters or in a wheelchair. Bathroom had all mobility aids that you could need. Tea making facility in the cabin for an early morning or late night cuppa, is BLISS. Should be available on every ship on every cruise line. Definitely would not go on it again. These ships are getting too big and there is no camaraderie on them any more. Rhapsody and Radiance are much friendlier. Read Less
