I love a cruise, and last year I had the pleasure of cruising aboard Royal Caribbean Voyager of the Seas. In between eating, visits to the salon, and lots of other activities, I took a few snippets of video in the main areas and our port side cabin 8630. I didn’t want to reveal too much of the ship, as it would spoil the experience for first time cruisers.
If you are docking at the Sydney terminal, I recommend having a cabin on the port side of the ship. That’s the left side for you non sailing types! This way you will be sure to have a great view of Sydney Harbour and the Opera House when setting sail. Of course all ships can dock in different directions, so it is worth checking which way the ship will be facing for your specific trip.
Of the two Royal Caribbean ships I have traveled on, the Voyager of the Seas had the most recent makeover, with a retro vibe and loads of chrome. The staff on board were lovely, and the food was of a fairly high standard considering the volume of patrons on board. This ship boasts an ice rink, which I thought was really odd when the weather was really hot outside. Having said that, the show put on by the entertain crew was brilliant.
Taking a cruise with the family is my favourite way to relax, with no laundry, cooking or cleaning to do. There is lots to keep kids busy, although this ship is not specially aimed at young families. There were a range of ages of the patrons onboard, with some toting mobility aids. This can make the lifts quite busy, which gives you a chance to burn off all those meals using the stairs.
I hope you enjoy the video tour of the Voyager of the Seas and leave me a comment if you have any specific questions.
