February 2017 - 12 Night South Pacific & Fiji (Sydney Roundtrip) Cruise on Voyager of the Seas
For starters, our Suite was upgraded automatically by Royal Caribbean (Owner's Suite), and it was a very nice surprise. We love cruising out of Sydney, and always plan on a few extra days in the city. This cruise was 12 nights, with 2 stops in Fiji, Vanuatu, Mystery Island, Isle of Pines, and Noumea. The beaches on Mystery Island and the Isle of Pines were absolutely beautiful.
The Explorer is still a very nice ship, despite it's age. The food in the Dining Room and Windjammer Buffet was very good...pretty consistent with the other ships in the fleet. Chops Grill was outstanding, and our waiter, Alfredo, made it a great experience. Our Suite Concierge, Elizabeth Wong, was the best we have ever experienced. Wonderfully engaging, pleasant, and knowledgeable. In addition, the bar service provided in the Lounge by Jose and Eka was excellent.
Both embarking and disembarking were a breeze. Finally, our agent, Patricia Opera, was once again outstanding in every way. Patti has helped us select and plan cruises for several years, and we use her services exclusively. We would highly recommend her to all cruisers...new and experienced.
