Voyager Class

This is one of five of this class of ship. The ship has a diesel-electric powertrain Azipod propellers. The vessel has three of these propellers, ensuring enough power to carry the 1,674-passenger cabin ship.

2018, the ship underwent a $120 million refit, which involved adding cabins. That would be interesting to see.

The ship

This ship has 15 decks and is a pretty good size ship.

They have a dining room at the aft of the ship, which takes up two decks. Just one big dining room. The buffet is up on deck 11, at the back of the vessel.

They also have a place on deck 5 called Café Promenade, where free food is offered. Well, in 2010.

My Thoughts

I went on this ship in 2010, my very first cruise ever. Once I got up to the boat, it was huge.

We boarded the ship, and I was overwhelmed. I thought I would be bored and not have anything to do. But this ship.

This did cruises to the Mexican R with stops in

  • Cabo
  • Mazatlán
  • Puerto Vallarta

It soon left the West Coast as Royal Caribbean left due to profitability.

The ship was good, and the ship had something called the promenade, like a giant shopping spot. It was a lovely ship, and I would go on her again.
