FIrst time on Voyager, but we had been on Mariner before, so no surprises. It was the same layout and quality. The food was wonderful and the dining staff superb. It was exactly the same quality we have always had with Royal Caribbean.

Pros: Dining staff went out of their way to make sure we had a fine dining experience

Cons: the weather - it's hot in July!

Recommends Voyager of the Seas? Yes!

Bari, Italy
We didn't spend anytime in downtown Bari. We took the excursion to Osunti instead and loved it. After seeing the walled city overlooking the sea, we enjoyed seeing the 2000-3000 year old olive trees and having lunch at a wonderful country estate. The owner gave us a fantastic tour of the buildings, which were full of old farming relics and the old olive oil press. This was something that we could never see anywhere else.
Don't Miss: ancient olive trees
Dubrovnik, Croatia
We loved going out into the country side and seeing the old mills and sampling the food as well as visiting the old walled city. It is a beautiful place with the shore and the mountains. Our tour guide was fantastic, as were all of the people we met.
Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey
Ephesus is a must see. In addition, we visited a small town and had a wonderful lunch. We thought the rug making would be a waste of time, but ended up enjoying that very much as well.
Don't Miss: Ephesus - it's amazing
Venice, Italy
We spent several days before the cruise in Venice as well as the 2 days at the end that were part of the cruise. Be sure to take plenty of time here - there is no such thing as too much! 1 Euro pastries at the train station are fantastic.
Don't Miss: Must buy a water bus pass and get on and off at as many stops as possible. It's the only way to cover enough territory. Tour St Marks and the Palace as a ship excursion to avoid the ticket lines.
