Voyager of the Seas Review

Cruise Ship Overview

The five-ship Voyager-class debuted in 1999 with Voyager of the Seas, which had such innovations as the first ice-skating rink at sea and the Main-Street–style Royal Promenade. In 2014, Voyager of the Seas is slated to receive more features, including an outdoor movie screen poolside, an updated wine bar, casual Park Café, Italian specialty restaurant, digital signage, lounges for elite past passengers, and a new nursery.

A truly impressive building program introduced one of these gigantic Voyager-class ships per year over a five-year period. With their rock-climbing walls, ice-skating rinks, in-line skating tracks, miniature golf, and multiple dining venues, they are destinations in their own right. Sports enthusiasts will be thrilled with nonstop daytime action.

The unusual horizontal, multiple-deck promenade-atriums on Voyager-class vessels can stage some of the pageantry for which Royal Caribbean is noted. Fringed with boutiques, bars, and even coffee shops, the mall-like expanses set the stage for evening parades and events, as well as spots to simply kick back for some people-watching.

Other public rooms are equally dramatic. Though it's considered to be three separate dining rooms, the triple-deck height of the single space is stunning. These ships not only carry a lot of people, but carry them well. Space is abundant, and crowding is seldom an issue.
