The best onboard Royal Caribbean’s Voyager of the Seas


She’s one of the grandest ships sailing on South East Asian waters. Royal Caribbean’s Voyager of the Seas has all the bells and whistles for a fantastic holiday – great food, entertainment, luxurious cabins and activities for those with an adventurous spirit.

Voyager of the Seas is a ‘floating city’ and is one of the biggest ships in the world with a passenger capacity of just under 4,000 passengers.

She sails from Singapore to a number of destinations in South East Asia and I was fortunate enough to be able to spend a night on the giant vessel.

One of the most striking features of Voyager of the Seas is its grand Royal Promenade which has boutiques selling luxury cosmetics, handbags, clothes and watches.

Voyager of the Seas boasts delicious cuisine from all around the world. While guests can enjoy multi-course dining options for breakfast, lunch and dinner, those who want something more specialised can head to the restaurants.

Places like Chops Grille, the sensational steakhouse, serves premium cuts of meat or Giovanni’s Table which serves the traditional Italian fare.

My favourite, from the evening at Giovanni’s Table was the baked jumbo shrimp, garlic tossed potatoes with baby zucchini and asparagus.

For those looking for an Asian flare, Izumi Japanese Cuisine serves traditional and fusion sushi dishes. Those looking for more casual dining, there are a number of cafes as well as Johnny Rockets burgers and Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream.

The cushy accommodation onboard Voyager of the Seas caters to all different budgets. There are the most luxurious of suites to inside cabins with “virtual balconies” that mimic windows using cameras placed all around the ship so guests feel like they are looking out over their balcony. The Grand Suite, which is the most luxurious accommodation onboard Voyager of the Seas, has its own private balcony, sitting area as well as concierge service.

Casino Royal has lots of flashy slot machines set against a backdrop of poker and blackjack tables.

For those with a bit more of an adventurous spirit, there is the FlowRider, a specialty surf simulator exclusive to Royal Caribbean. There are surf instructors which will give you some advice on how to surf your way around the ride – but don’t expect to stand up immediately! Voyager of the Seas also has a rock-climbing wall; ice skating rink, mini-golf course and much more.

If you want some rest and relaxation, the Vitality Spa has over 100 treatments. There are also six whirlpools as well as four pools including a Solarium and an adults only retreat.

It will be a holiday for all to remember.
