The grandeur of Voyager of the Seas goes beyond its sheer size. Though immense and expansive, the interior feels cordial and warm. It is imbued with artistic elements from cabinetry touches to hallway functions and lightings that vary through the ship, echoing the wide variety of amenities and services aboard. The ship’s layout allows for maximum efficiency of time as cruisers seek adventures and discoveries through the decks.
Voyager’s cabins are reasonably proportional to its size, with spacious accommodation. Cabins come in three major types: ocean-view, interior and atrium-view. All rooms, except for Royal Suite and Owner’s Suite, have twin-to-queen beds. Additionally, each room has a TV, radio and telephone, safe, vanity unit, hair dryer and a dainty bathroom. Of the 1,557 cabins, 757 have balconies and about 300 have interconnecting doors that are suited to families or larger groups. Other necessities are added on request.
The main dining halls are divided into three, with operatic themes – Carmen, La Boheme and Magic Flute, all connected by magnificent staircases. Free time and set time dining are available. Meals may also be taken at Portofino, a Euro-Italian upscale restaurant, or the casual buffet-style Windjammer Café. The charming Promenade Café specialises in Continental breakfast and lunch selections that include all-day pizzas and sandwiches. Island Grill and Johnny Rockets are also popular all-day choices among a long list of food options on board.
Voyager offers a wide choice of fitness activities and wellness options. The Voyager Day Spa, operated by Steiner Leisure, is a vast space for peace and relaxation complete with a wide variety of treatment options from classic spa treatments to exotic relaxation experiences. A sea-view area is also available plus a unique hydrotherapy pool. The Fitness Center is fully equipped and has floor-to-ceiling crystal windows giving an ocean view. There is also the Greek-styled, adults-only Solarium and a variety of sports, including ice-skating.
Voyager has outdoor and indoor facilities for children, from the Adventure Ocean Club with activities and educational and social events, to the Adventure Beach pool and children’s slide. Babysitting and group daycare programs are available.
