Voyager Of The Seas
MS Voyager of the Seas is the namesake of Voyager-class ships of Royal Caribbean and is the largest ship in passenger numbers, to visit New Zealand. At 311 metres long, she is also one of the longer ones to call into New Zealand.
Voyager of the Seas offers a vast range of facilities and was the very first ship to introduce the world’s first rock climbing wall (mounted on the funnel) and ice-skating rink at sea. Both of which are now mainstay attractions on all Voyager-class, Freedom-class and Oasis-class ships.
Voyager of the Seas made its maiden voyage to New Zealand in late 2012 and will continue to be a frequent visitor to New Zealand in the 2014-15 cruise season based out of Sydney. After the season down under, Voyager of the Seas will then deploy to China.
Royal Caribbean generally appeals to a broad range of demographics and like its predecessors on this route, the Voyager of the Seas is likely to attract family groups, couples and groups of friends out of Australia.
Royal Caribbean International allows guests to bring two 750ml bottles of wine per cabin on boarding day only. The wine can be consumed in guest rooms without charge or charged a $25 corkage fee when consumed in a public space. If more than two bottles are brought onboard, the additional bottles will be secured by ship personnel and returned just prior to the end of the cruise. Wine brought onboard on other days will be collected and returned on the final evening of the cruise.
