Two years ago my husband and myself took the same cruise but for 2 weeks. This year we wanted to celebrate our wedding anniversary and my son's school graduation. The day that we were supposed to celebrate, dinner was a disaster. My daughter and I are lactose intolerant, we had already picked our special food a day before, and we were told that they had a surprise for us. When we arrived for dinner, they make us wait for 45 minutes, even thought we had a reservation for 6:00pm, and once we were at the table, we had to wait for another 35 minutes. We couldn't even enjoy the show at the Scala because it was too late. We also notice that the ship is lacking service and some areas and bathrooms were liking.

The excursions to other islands was well worth the money.  The Chops Grill was worth the money.  Please remember to get a visa before entering the country.

This cruise was great and relaxing. It was our first time cruising and we really liked the convenience of getting to different islands/ports without having to pack/travel/unpack. In the future I'd book a cruise with more port stops as we got a little bored on the sea days. The food was pretty good, lots of sodium, but that's really the best you can hope for with buffets.

Good Cruise to See New Zealand

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

The variety of activities onboard was excellent.  We enjoyed the ice skating, rock climbing, sports court, flow riders, etc.  The nightly entertainment was also very good.

 

 

Tour – not enough staff to manage the people in the staging area.

Bathroom – had smell, shower floor side broken, sink slow drainage, toilet moldy

Stateroom – attendant did not change the glasses in the bathroom each day

Ice Skating – no direction on how to sign up

Windjammer – hours too short, plastic cups with stains – porcelain cups ok

Photo Gallery – cannot access photos when ship is in port

Deck 11 – forward starboard door to outside broken – can go out, but cannot re-enter – informed staff, but still not functioning the next day.

Poor air conditioning and air circulation throughout entire ship

La Scala Theater – seat drink holders do not fit any of the cocktail / wine glasses

Compass – many errors, especially on timing

Compass – no inserts on port of call with map and shuttle information, as with other cruises

Free port shuttles on other cruises, but not this one.

Highlights of our Voyager of the Seas Experience

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

In 2010 my sister and I had the good fortune to cruise on Royal Caribbean's Mariner of the Seas -top of the line experience.  Since that time we have cruised every year on other cruise lines and always agreed that RC was our best in every way.  We were not disappointed for the most part - Voyager of the Seas was a different model but RC has such a superb ambience throughout.  Here are some of the things we were thrilled with:  Outstanding RC orchestra; excellent headline shows except for a couple which I will address later; great food; friendly and helpful staff and crew; Park West very personable, efficient - thoroughly enjoyed interaction with them.  Enjoyed the Christmas atmosphere and the attention to the children's enjoyment, even though we did not have any children - just nice to see the ship's interest in their wonderful overall experience even opening the ice rink for their enjoyment.  Excellent ice show - went twice - still wanted more!!!

Special kudos to the Captain who kept his ship under control - hardly any rocking to and fro - not one night did the ship rock me to sleep - darn!!! Special mention of the excellent service by our room steward, Inyoman Yoga; servers in dining room, Dinesh and Xuetin and Vinkada; Sean and Seananna O'Conner, Tanya, Brittony, Preston and Li, the art gallery crew; everyone in the buffet and Café Promenade.  We had one great tour guide at The Isle of the Pines, Aina - so personable and very informative.

Now some of the things we did not enjoy.  The hypnotist show - he had a very offensive and rude attitude towards the audience.  The magician who needed better technology so we could see what he was doing when mingling with the audience thus did not enjoy this show.  Felt a little cheated with short stay in Auckland NZ - after travelling so far (US) then having to be on ship so early.

Suggestions:  more 24 hour eating places;  more food coverage especially after returning from excursions; more iced tea coverage throughout the ship, especially the Café Promenade and do not be afraid to put "ice" in the iced tea; would have been nice to hear the announcements in our room.

OVERALL:  it was a relaxed, "have fun" environment!!!!!!

Royal Caribbean is still #1 in our book.

Everything in the ship is excellent except the experience of dealing with people who are in charge of visa/access entry. Most of passengers in this group are Chinese citizens and elderly with age over 80 who have applied all necessary visas and access entry before departing. However the people who are in charge of verifying the documents didn't collect them in the beginning and called elderly in the mid of first night after long & exhausted travel from China. They had very bad attitude and horrible warning if they don't come down to deliver the documents right way and they would be punished. It was the first night and left very bad memory to our guests.

Excellent experience. 

The only negative experience was the Photo Dept.  Misleading signs posted at the Kiosk.  Staff not trained to help and serve the customer.  Photo cost were prohibitive ( cost of a disk cost 10 cents) Your charge was $5.00.  Better to charge an affordable price, people would buy more and with each photo shared at home, would advertise Voyager of the Seas, which means more business.

The experience was nice and pleasant, except for the dining hostess.  American Airlines promised that they would help coordinate seating for our party of 18.  Instead, when we arrived, our group of 18 was broken up during dining.  Sometimes we were seated on different floors and sometimes on different sides of the room.

Different type of cruise

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
The ship is very nice, like most of Royal Caribbean's ships. The food selection was weaker than other cruises we have been on, but the service was perfect. Our stateroom attendant was great as was all of the staff. The itinerary allowed us to see several countries that we would not have visited otherwise. I would not hesitate to book a cruise on this ship again. Some of the ports (Japan, Xiamen, Siagon) did not have much to see on the excursions. However Beijing, South Korea, Bankok, Hong Kong, and Singapore where fantastic. This cruise ship does not have much control over what there is to see at a particular port, but I would not recommend anyone go to Vietnam, it is a dump.

The best Tip I could mention is that it's all American dollars on the ship and when they take your money off your card it's going to be more then you realise... I guess it depends on the money difference between Aus/USA dollars.

Get your cocktail glasses from the pool deck early if you want to get the set. Get to activities and shows early to get good seats.
