Voyager of the Seas was a breakthrough ship when she entered service in 1999. Indeed, she was so far ahead of her time that her features still remain competitive with ships just entering service.
The ship has a casual atmosphere. The décor is light colored and is enhanced by a sizeable collection of contemporary art.
The centerpiece of the public areas on Voyager of the Seas is the Royal Promenade. This is a street or pedestrian mall running along the ship's centerline for a 100 yards or so. Along the Royal Promenade are shops, bars and dining venues. At either end of the promenade are multi-deck high atriums. The Royal Promenade is also an entertainment venue with live music and on certain evenings it becomes the scene of street parties.
Voyager has a lot to offer those looking for physical activity. There are two outdoor pool areas. The adult-oriented Solarium area has its own pool, hot tubs and a bar. The main pool area has a pair of pools and hot tubs. Overlooking the main pool area is a giant video screen. The area also has bars and snack facilities.
Voyager is more than outdoor activities, however. The Royal Theater is a traditional cruise ship theater where production shows are performed and visiting entertainers appear. But Voyager also has a large ice rink on which spectacular ice shows are performed. Live music of various types can be heard in various bars and lounges.
The ship offers several dining options. The main dining room is a huge room decorated with traditional grandeur. In addition to the main floor, there are two balcony levels. Breakfast and lunch (sea days only) are open seating. For dinner,, guests have a choice between the traditional two-seating system or a flexible dining system.
The ship has three specialty restaurants: Chops Grill (steakhouse); Izumi (sushi and Japanese dishes); and Giovanni's (Italian cuisine). There is also a Chef's Table offering.
In addition, there are casual dining venues such as the Cafe Promenade and the large Windjammer buffet restaurant.
The ship has a variety of staterooms ranging from large suites to utilitarian inside cabins.
