Review of Voyager Of The Seas

Launched in 1999, Voyager of the Seas is the first Voyager-class Royal Caribbean ship, followed by AdventureExplorerNavigator and Mariner. At the time it entered service, Royal Caribbean's Voyager of the Seas was the largest cruise liner in the world, heralded as the most revolutionary ship ever built. Voyager cost US $650 million to build and was last refurbished in 2014, with next scheduled refurbishment in 2018.

History - construction & ownership

Royal Caribbean International (RCI) is owned by Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. RCI is a cruise line brand established in Norway and currently based in Miami, Florida. As of September 2015, the line controls a 17% share of the world cruise market, with 23 cruise ships in service and other three on order. All vessels under the Royal Caribbean brand have had their names ending with "of the Seas" since 1991. Sister brands owned by Royal Caribbean Ltd. are Azamara Cruises, Celebrity Cruises, CDF Croisières de France and Pullmantur Cruises.

The 137,276-ton, 3,114-passenger cruise ship Voyager of the Seas has been bypassed in size and conveniences by the Freedom-class trio and the massive Oasis-class twins. However, it's still between the largest ships in the world, with a range of the most uncruise-like places at sea. The most revolutionary ship ever built forever changed the world of cruising with such never-before-seen facilities as an ice skating rink/TV studio/concert arena, rock-climbing wall, in-line skating track, horizontal atrium (now known as the Royal Promenade), and inside staterooms with a view. The rock-climbing walls are now aboard each Royal Caribbean cruise liner, and the ice skating rink and other facilities might also be enjoyed on the line's other four Voyager-class vessels, three Freedom-class and a pair of Oasis-class ships. However, Voyager of the Seas is still exciting.

Cruise itinerary program

Voyager of the Seas itinerary program is based on Australia and New Zealand cruises out of Sydney. In the summer, Voyager sails in Asia with departures out of Hong Kong and Tianjin. On reposition cuises between Australia and Asia, the vessel visits Thailand, Vietnam and Singapore. 

In 2016, Tirun, the exclusive Representative in India of Royal Caribbean Cruises, is enhancing its offerings for Indian cruisers with Voyager of the Seas sailing out of SingaporeThe deployment of the ship is in synchrony with summer vacations. The Tirun company has signed a marketing partnership with Singapore Tourism Board as first recipient of the Cruise Development Fund supporting travel partners for Singapore cruise charters. Tirun is allowed to reach out to larger consumer base looking to experience Southeast Asia cruising.

The itineraries onboard Voyager of the Seas have been specially selected with Indian families in mind and range from 3-night to 8-night sailings. Passengers can cruise from Singapore to destinations like Kuala LumpurHong KongBangkokPhuketNha Trang and more. 

Cabins

Most Voyager of the Seas staterooms are 150-sq.foot insides (499). Almost 50% of ship's accommodations have private balcony views. There are a total of 1557 staterooms in 28 categories. 26 are the wheelchair accessible rooms. Voyager also features 81 Virtual Balcony rooms. The largest aboard Voyager of the Seas are the Royal Suites (1090 ft2 - more than 100 m2!).

Dining options - Food & Drinks

From the meals in the Sapphire Restaurant, ship's main dining rooms, to the buffet choices in Windjammer Cafe and options available at 24-hour Cafe Promenade, food aboard Voyager of the Seas is well prepared with plentiful choices, especially considering ship's capacity. The Windjammer buffet restaurant features mediocre cuisine with kudos to the egg station at breakfast and the carving station at lunch. Vegetarians will do better in the MDR at lunch. The buffet features the items offered on the main dining room menu. The Italian-themed Giovanni’s Table charges a US$20 per-person cover charge (specialty beverages, wine, beer and soda are paid separately), and offers a multi-course meal. Johnny Rockets is another specialty eatery, 1950's-style burger joint, where passengers can indulge in hot dogs, burgers, chili fries and onion rings.
