Review of Voyager Of The Seas

Launched in 1999, Voyager of the Seas is the first Voyager-class Royal Caribbean ship, followed by Adventure, Explorer, Navigator 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.

History - construction and ownership

Royal Caribbean International (RCI) is an US company, trademarked brand and subsidiary owned by Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd (RCCL, shipowner). RCI was established in 1968 and currently has over 1/5 of the worldwide cruise market. RCI also has RCCL's largest fleet as both number of vessels and GT tonnage (ship sizes and capacities). All Royal Caribbean liners have names ending with "of the Seas".

Voyager Of The Seas cruise ship (Royal Caribbean)

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.

Ship's season 2018-2019 (April through June) has Royal Caribbean's longest-ever Southeast Asian cruise program. The ship has scheduled all 90 departures (3 to 9-nights itineraries) leaving roundtrip from Singapore, including:

  • 3-day weekend cruises to Malaysia (Penang-Klang)
  • 4-day to Malaysia and Thailand (Penang-Phuket)
  • 5-day to Klang-Penang-Phuket
  • 5-day to Laem Chabang (Bangkok overnight)
  • 7-day to Klang-Penang-Langkawi-Phuket (overnight)
  • plus B2Bs (back-to-back cruises)

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!).

Shipboard dining options - Food and 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.

Windjammer buffet restaurant offers an egg station at breakfast and a 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.
