This trip was my sixth cruise, but my first on Royal Caribbean and there were quite a number of differences between my last cruise and this one. My last cruise was a 7 night Southern Caribbean trip on Carnival Cruise Lines, my usual choice. In this review, I will highlight a few points in which the two cruise lines differ, based on my personal experiences.PriceFor some reason, a cruise on Carnival is always cheaper than a cruise on Royal Caribbean, regardless of the fact that they are both sailing the identical route for the same length of time. Carnival tends of promote many deals such as cash back and early booking savings, while the prices on Royal Caribbean only seem to drop when...Read More

The party scene on any cruise depends on the age demographics of the passengers onboard. Luckily for me, there were enough youths and people young at heart, to have a great time in any club or bar every night of the trip. The cruise newspaper, known as the Cruise Compass would advertise the different events which would take place later, and most people would show up for a night of drinking and partying.Music:My favourite nightly haunt was called The Vault, and from 10pm it was always packed. The music was a mix of Hip Hop and Pop music, and the DJ kept playing all the latest hits to keep everyone on the dancefloor. People were having such a great time, that many persons were sweating...Read More

The Voyager of the Seas had a wide array of activities taking place at any given hour of the day. If it wasn't for the daily newspaper named The Compass, guests would be totally at a loss about what activity was taking place at a particular time. The ship catered to all age groups, from toddlers to the elderly in an effort to ensure than no one felt left out.For the children, there was a kids room which contained all the latest game systems such as the Wii and PS3, complete with countless games to choose from. There were also old fashioned arcade games including air hockey tables and racing bikes. Staff members would hold special outings for the young ones, so that their parents could have...Read More

When you're on a cruise ship, you are dependent on the staff and your fellow guests in order to have a great time. When most people research the service on a ship, some may expect a butler to tend to their every whim and fancy, while others are more concerned with reviews about the people who are in charge of running the child care center.Onboard the Voyager of the Seas, I am pleased to say that I had a great time, and that every staff member that I came into direct contact with were friendly, helpful and courteous. This went a long way, in helping me to enjoy my time onboard and lots of great memories were created.In the dining rooms, the main staff members which guests intera...Read More

Loving My Inside Cabin!

Despite the fact that the words 'inside cabin' may spark fear into a claustrophic person, our interior cabin onboard the Voyager of the Seas was beyond satisfactory. Our main concern was simply to enjoy the ship and all that it had to offer, while spending as little amount of time as possible in the room. Why would you go on a cruise ship, if only to obsess about your sleeping quarters?Our cabin was a modest 150 square feet, but it was a far cry from being described as a closet. Our cabin became our home over the course of 7 days, a humble abode to stagger back to after eating to our heart's content in the restaurant, or after dancing into the wee hours of the morning in one of the 14 clu...Read More
