Review of mv Voyager

MV Voyager cruise ship was formerly operating as "Alexander von Humboldt" (2008–2012). The vessel was built in 1990 in Valencia (Spain) under the name “Crown Monarch”, with previous owners Club Cruise, Casino ship and Cunard.

History - construction & ownership

The 15,396-ton, 550-passenger ship mv Voyager joined Voyages of Discovery in December 2012. The last refurbishment of the Voyager was in Portland Port, U.K., the same year, and ended by her maiden voyage. Like her sister cruise ship Discovery, the small size of Voyager means that the vessel is able to access remote, out of the way ports.

Cruise itinerary program

MV Voyager itinerary program is based mostly on cruises in Europe, but a variety of itineraries visit ports all around the world. The ship sails in the Mediterranean and around UK (British Isles), as well as to far-flung destinations in Africa, the Caribbean, South Asia (including Indian Ocean islands).

Cabins

After major technical upgrades, now the ship boasts 30 balcony cabins out of 270, and 87% outside. The digital media players allow guests in all staterooms to access a large selection of documentaries, classical concerts and films. When all staterooms have double occupancy, the cruise vessel secures a space ratio of 27,7 tons per guest.

Dining options - Food & Drinks

There are two restaurants on board mv Voyager, both open seating, plus an intimate specialty restaurant, Explorer Club, which is pre-bookable.

Entertainment options - Fun & Sport

The new features of mv Voyager include Scott’s Lounge, a piano bar that serves cocktails in the evening, the Lookout Lounge with panoramic views from front of the ship and a new terrace added to Veranda Restaurant for al fresco style dining. The new Bridge Club is dual purpose and can also be used for lectures onboard the ship. MV Voyager features a swimming pool, two whirlpools, a gym and Beauty Centre.

  • mv Voyager joined the Voyages of Discovery line company in the end of 2012, following a refurbishment in Portland (England, UK). The ship was formerly operated as "MV Alexander von Humboldt" (between 2008–2012), "MV Jules Verne" (between 2007–2008), "MV Walrus" (between 1996–2007), "MV Nautican" (between 1994–1996). The vessel was originally built for Crown Cruise Line as "Crown Monarch" and operated under this name between 1990–1994. After numerous refurbishments, refits and upgrades, today the Voyager cruise ship boasts 87% outside cabins, with 30 of the suites being staterooms with private balconies.
  • The ship's last naming ceremony took place at the home-port Portsmouth (South Hampshire, England) on December 4, 2012.
  • MV Voyager cruise itineraries are mostly in the Mediterranean Sea (Europe). However, the ship also cruises around the world, visiting ports in Southeast Asia, South Africa, Indian Ocean, Caribbean Sea (incl Panama Canal). Transatlantic cruises are offered on repositioning.
  • In January 2017, the shipowner All Leisure Group cancelled all January cruises on MV Voyager (Voyages of Discovery brand) and also on MV Minerva (Swan Hellenic brand). The Voyager ship was supposed to depart from Malaysia on Jan 4 (15-day Asian itinerary), and the Minerva ship on Jan 3 (15-day Canaries itinerary). The owner company explained its decision in brief Twitter post as “operational reasons”. All Leisure Group also owns the brand "Hebridean Island Cruises" and other travel businesses. In early 2016, the company's Managing Director and chairman R.J. Allard announced that “cruise division continued to be unprofitable”. For more information read this CruiseMapper news article.
