Great intro to the world of cruising

Sail Date: October 08, 2011

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

The Voyager of the Seas is a beautiful ship! As first time cruisers, we boarded with a critical eye but we were completely won over by the experience. We enjoyed the shows every night. Our meals the main dining room were delicious and well-presented and our waiters attentive. We liked dressing up on the two formal nights as it made the evenings really festive. There were plenty of activities but honestly we never made it to anything other than two late night quiz shows!

Pros: hospitality of the Voyager crew

Cons: leaving the ship!

Recommends Voyager of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
The Voyager of the Seas is one of the older in the RCI fleet but she is impeccably maintained.
Food and Dining
The main dining room is beautiful. We never ate in the Windjammer, not even for lunch. Why bother when the dining room is available and so much more gracious?
Cabin / Stateroom
We loved having access to the Concierge Lounge as suite guests. We also appreciated the big bathroom in our suite, with double sinks and a soaking tub.
Service and Staff
We had Grand Suite #1324 on the hump, which has a larger balcony than most. Having the suite was worth every penny both for the extra room space (particularly the bathroom) and the extra amenities only for suite guests. A great splurge if you can do it.
Elton John tribute on the Voyager was particularly good.
Ravenna, Italy
Ravenna is a lovely little town well worth an afternoon. The ship docks right at the beach, too, which is great for a good walk up and down the shore or swimming in warmer months.
Don't Miss: don't miss the mosaics in all the churches. Buy the pass.
Dubrovnik, Croatia
What's to say except Dubrovnik is fabulous!
Don't Miss: take a tour of the countryside.
Bari, Italy
Bari is fun to wander around and it's very easy to take the train to other towns.
Don't Miss: take the local train to the cliff side town of Polignano a Mare.
Venice, Italy
Incredible experience to sail from and back into Venice.
Don't Miss: take a ride on the water bus (vaporetto).
Koper, Slovenia
Koper is so tiny; however, it's a great jumping off point to other more interesting places.
Don't Miss: visit the Slocjan Caves, a UNESCO site. Spectacular!
