Voyager of the Seas Cruise Review
The Voyager of The Seas is clearly a beautiful ship. The rooms are well designed and the Ship Shape Gym is second to none. The service and food quality were not what we had experienced on our previous RCCL travels. In general, the staff seemed to lack the typical RCCL enthusiasm. The concensus of our fellow travelers was that the staff appeared as if they had not had a vacation in ten years. Smiles were few and far between. The quality of the food was rather poor. Even one of the head waiters working in the Windjammer dining area said that RCCL is pinching pennies (lots of ham and chicken legs at lunch...not a chicken breast to be seen). We know that the preparation is large volume, but a big ship with a big staff and bigger facilities shouldn't equal cafeteria quality food! During our cruise (01/23/00), you couldn't go anywhere without seeing a repair crew. We asked if this was just a period of getting the bugs out, and the crew said "no, this is it." The entertainment looked as if it had been slapped together the night before, especially during the first nights' parade along the promenade (actors talking to each other like they were just learning the moves). All in all, we had a great vacation, but that is always a matter of making your own fun and enjoying warm Caribbean weather when it's 10 degrees at home.
