Voyager of the Seas
Now that the holidays are upon us, the time has come for me to start counting down the days to my next adventure.
With 30-days before we sail, I figured now would not only be a good time to start blogging about the trip, but also to start resolve, to provide our friends and clients with a more consistent stream of information, ideas, photos and spotlights on destinations.
With that said, On December 24th, 2011, I will be sailing on Royal Caribbean’s Voyager of the Seas. Leaving from New Orleans, LA ~ with ports of call in Cozumel, Grand Cayman and Falmouth, Jamaica
Voyager of the seas is considered a mega ship, the likes of which I have sailed on before, however this time I am excited to be taking a first time cruiser with me. (I am sure he will share his perspective of the whole trip in a later blog). But for those of you that have not cruised before, or are thinking about a cruise on a mega ship, here is a little information on Voyager of the Seas.
Voyager of the Seas Main Pool
Completed in 1999, she is one the namesake of the voyager class of ships. Accommodating 3114, she weighs in at 137,276 gross tons and is 1,020 feet long with a beam of 156 Ft.
The ships boosts 2 major pool areas, an adult solarium with a retracting roof, and the main pool deck, both equipped with bars and cocktail service, to satisfy thirst. There are several dining options onboard, including a buffet, sushi bar, and pizza and sandwich shop. Portofino, the sociality restaurant is available with reservations and a small service fee, but the main dining room boasts two traditional seatings, where Guests are assigned a meal time, a wait staff and a table. Each meal is 5 expertly served courses, usually with a themed menu such as Italian, Caribbean or seafood.
Commonly referred to as a floating hotel, voyager has a rock climbing wall, casino and an ice skating rink listed as some of her many amenities. Voyager also boasts it’s awarding winning Royal Promenade, which features world class lounges, bars and light dining options, as well as shops and entertainment.
With all of the traditions of crusings, such as the midnight buffet, the opulent theather shows and the outstanding drinks, programming and entertainment, I wonder what the holidays will bring to the ship. The addition of Christmas dinner and a New Years Party, I am sure will be something to talk about.
I am really excited to be able to share the trip with you – in hopes that it will evoke some new ideas for your future vacations
