all they want is more of your money

Sail Date: June 11, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

the actual ship was wonderful, but then they took a fabulous facility and tried to make it tacky. the only good part of the design was the artwork throughout the ship. food in the main diningroom was mediocre on its best day. extra charges on everything were over the top. definitely NOT to be repeated.

Pros: the staff want to please and try to do everything to serve you well

Cons: all they want is to find new ways to take your money. even juice made from concentrate that didn't even taste like orange juice cost $3. after spending decent money for the cruise, nothing was covered except food and even some of that incurred extra charges. room service had a very minimal menu...

Recommends Voyager of the Seas? No.

Ship Quality
this would be my own bias; it was designed for people who liked camp as kids; scheduled and entertaining for large groups. not my kind of thing.
Food and Dining
food in the main diningroom was poorly done and half the time the hot food was cold. the more casual diningroom had a great selection and usually the food was pretty good. but a charge of $50 for two standard drinks was definitely over the top. totally unacceptable.
Cabin / Stateroom
the stateroom was more than adequate and the stateroom attendant and other ship staff were fabulous.
Service and Staff
you couldn't ask for better people to serve you. they are trained superbly and do anything possible to make your stay pleasant and to cater to your desires and needs.
Koper, Slovenia
charming little town; still not really prepared for large tourist invasion, so it wasn't able to handle the people on our ship too well. but the town was charming and visiting it was pleasant.
Don't Miss: there's not much here, but a charming old city.
Bari, Italy
we found a cute little turkish restaurant in bari, but really it's a port and a big city. not much more beyond the old city that we had time to see.
Don't Miss: the old city.
Venice, Italy
venice no longer is populated by venetians; they can't afford to live there. it has become basically a huge museum or amusement park for tourists. many of the shops are no longer operated or owned by italians; today there is a large population of chinese who have bought businesses in the city. if you're looking for the real italy, go somewhere else. if you're looking for a city that is worth saving for its museum and art and architectural values, it is at least that.
Dubrovnik, Croatia
the town of dubrovnik couldn't handle two or three large cruise ships at one time; the entire old town was overrun by tourists and there was no room for locals. but once you got outside of town into the country it was fantastic. the food was terrific, the people were great, and the area was gorgeous. the recover now 20 years after the war is remarkable. the area isn't overly touristy, so it makes for gorgeous, quiet, beautiful country with fabulous weather. will return for another visit.
