About Voyager of the Seas:
Voyager of the Seas is one of the most versatile ships with plenty to keep you occupied. For the sporty types there are plenty of opportunities to show off your prowess with climbing walls, mini golf, inline deck-skating and even a real ice rink! With a wide choice of food, you can choose between relaxed American burger bars to an exquisite Italian meal. Disco’s for the teens, shows or casinos for the adults and plenty of fun packed entertainment for the kids – in fact something for everyone.
For those a little less adventurous, how about a lovely relaxing time at the Day Spa and Fitness centre? There are plenty of excellent treatments on offer to rival the best available on dry land. If you fancy some chill-out time, you can wander the Royal Promenade, peruse the shops and take a well earned break in the café. Or maybe just retire to a quiet sunny corner to enjoy a good book, or listen to your ipod.
After all that activity you’ll be glad to wander back to your light, airy relaxing bedroom. Again, there is accommodation to suit all – from two storey suites with a private balcony, to the smaller internal rooms to fit with any budget. But the common theme is for an eye to detail and a fresh, friendly feel.
All in all, with nearly 4,000 people on board you’ll be sure to find someone to enjoy passing a few hours of enjoyable conversation, but equally there is plenty of room to find your own space if you want peace and relaxation.
