7 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 11, 2012
Ship: Voyager of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago
Ship is well designed, lots to do day & night, great entertainment in theater, lounges. Loved the game shows hosted by ship staff. Do not appreciate all the "extra" costs when the price of the cruise is high enough to cover some of these items. Specialty restaurants that require payment for meals are a big negative. The other dining venues provide lots of variety and My Time dining covers those folks who do not like to be seated at specific times. Of course, My Time dining also costs extra. Do not appreciate that water and soda have to be purchased & no alcohol can be brought onto the ship. Inability to have a mixed drink or beer in cabin/balcony removed a great deal of enjoyment and use of balcony. You can sit on balcony but can't have an alcoholic drink while enjoying your space. It takes awhile to go to bar, get drink, and get all the way back to your room. We rarely drink alcohol but vacation is one time I like to have a daily drink & relax on balcony after a day of activities. We may not cruise again based on these negatives. Cost of cruise is high enough to cover at least water & soda. (free water, lemonade & tea available at 2 locations in open cups-no lids) We felt we were being charged all the time for something which removed some of the pleasures of cruising.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food was excellent and we were very pleased with offerings in the Windjammer and LaBoheme dining room but as noted above, do not appreciate the extra costs of My Time Dining and Specialty restaurants. These restaurants were empty most of the week until everyone was trying to use coupons at end of week. We never used our Specialty Dinner coupon.

There were many good choices of activities on board. In fact, it was difficult to remember to relax away from the crowd - there always seemed to be something we wanted to do.
