We chose this cruise because it was my brother in laws 60th birthday and 9 of us booked to go. I was feeling rather worried after reading quite a few bad reviews after I had booked the trip and we even thought of cancelling. In fact we actually went to cancel and then changed our mind on the day. So glad we didn't cancel. The cruise was great. I had seen quite a few bad reviews, mainly about the food and the staff but also petty ones about the size of the TV in the room, the ship being run down etc etc which I just ignore anyway. Yes the ship is going in for a refit but it still looked really good. I noticed some reviewers whinged about the size of the TV but for goodness sake they need to get a life. If you really do want a big TV in your room then I suggest you pay three times the price and go 5 star on another ship as this won't work for you. I could not believe the speed in which we got on to the ship. I was anticipating a couple of hours but from start to finish it was only about 30 minutes or so. Smooth as!. Getting off was a lot slower but the Queen Mary had also docked and there were over 10,000 of us trying to get off the two ships. So the delay was due to congestion through immigration which is not the ships fault but whoever is responsible to allowing two large ships to disembark at the same time. The food was excellent. Bear in mind this was not an expensive 5-star cruise. We mainly ate in the Windjammer cafe for breakfast and the smorgasbord was really good. We always found a seat no matter what time we went and we never felt crowded or had bad service. Most of the basic dishes were the same every day but many of the main dishes changed every day. we even had Yorkshire puddings on Sunday with the roast. The food included one-off things like Lancashire hotpot, scottish tattie pancakes, grilled prawns, banoffee pie plus all the regulars like curry's, noodle dishes stir fries, roast meats, salads and veggies and cakes galore, hamburgers and fries. All in all the food was excellent. My husband is a chef and he was quite happy as was I with the food provided. Each evening we had pre-dinner drinks at one of many bars and lounges and then went to the Sapphire dining room and had a fab 3 course dinner from an extensive menu that took about 1.5 hours. Then a show afterwards and off to bed. Casino, dancing bars etc went on until the early hours in you wanted to stay up. We didn't buy the drinks package as we are not heavy drinkers. If you are, as were some of the Aussies on board who must have had pickled livers by the time they got off, then the package will be good value for you. We were offered it cheaper on the first day when we got onto the ship, than we could buy it beforehand. It worked out with the discount about AUD $1000 for two people for the 7 nights. We just bought a bottle of wine between the two of us and if there was any left after dinner they keep it for you for the next night. All of the staff that we encountered were friendly and helpful. We are easy going people so perhaps why we didn't have any issues. I imagine if everyone thinks you are a pain in the rear then you will find some problem with this ship. The problem will most likely be that you are on it. The staff were really polite and very helpful. We encountered no rude staff at all. We went to four of the shows after dinner and enjoyed them all. We also went ashore each day and took a cab and did our own thing as we have been to KL, Langkawi, Penang and Phuket before. Personally if I ever went again on this particular cruise I would stay on board for all the destinations apart from Phuket and just enjoy the relaxing holiday on the ship. KL is an hour each way from the port, worthwhile if you want to do some shopping especially shoes as it is shoe shopping heaven providing you have small feet (under size 38 or size 8) You can find good day trips available through trip advisor if you don't want to pay the inflated prices on the ship. Remember everything that you buy on the ship is in US$. All in all I will now do another cruise with Royal Caribbean and would go on this ship Voyager of the Seas again Read Less

Stayed in a Junior Suite. Room is big and relatively clean, though it looks old and outdated. TV is small and bed is comfortable. House keeping is efficient and service level is acceptable. Turn down service is great. However a dirty cleaning towel was left in the basin after making up the room. All other services were terrible. Requested boarding assistance for seniors during booking but at the checking area, no assistance was offered even though she approached 3 staff. No smiles, no greetings from the staff Who looked tired and unhappy. Many staff acted as policemen onboard, telling passengers to queue and queue and to follow whatever rules they set to control the crowd. Lack of dinning tables and activities, shows. Saw two friends queuing to enter the buffet restaurant but they were told to go in two different batches and find each other inside the restaurant later. Certain sections of the main dinning rooms were always closed, scheduled show was cancelled due to technical reason. The only exception was the salesman who kept on introducing their chargeable items. Food is sufficient. Read Less

We were travelling to Singapore and thought it would be a lovely idea to include a short cruise which we did. To get to the point: It took about 2 hours to check in with long disorganised lines we had to work out what had to be done as there was no real information of where we go or what to do. We had to line up ( no queue area so people kept pushing in) to get bag tags then line up to check in our bags. Then we had to line up to check in the ship it was long, tiresome, hot and smelly absolute disgraceful. Once aboard we had to find our rooms once again inadequate signage, no staff to direct you so I spent 20 minutes finding the room and another one hour helping older frail people find their rooms on my floor. FOOD: Terrible, they had a large contingent of Indians on board so 60% of the food in the buffets were vegetarian Indian curries. There was one roast over the three days aboard and in general very little meat in the other dishes like the casserole and stews. They had rubbish like hamburger patties and sausages but it wasn't edible the food on average was shocking. The 'free sitting restaurant" with a menu was even worse. Nothing was fresh it was frozen foods thawed and cooked as a Chef and a caterer I know frozen foods and all of it was garbage. I told the waitress that I wouldn't even feed this to my dogs the Chefs should be ashamed of themselves. The buffet itself was disorganised, busy, people pushed into lines and we struggled to get seating until I cracked it and demanded that the waiter find my party a table which they did. We started to eat in the exclusive restaurants but that is very expensive but worth it. The café was free but once again filled to the brim with people you had no hope at any time to grab a coffee and cake. There seem to be no organisation, no one monitored the queues, no one monitored the number of guest flooding in, no one seem to direct people where to sit it was CHAOS! SHOWS - The shows were great and very entertaining but once again people were frantic and jumping the queues I had many stern discussions with people to be civil. STAFF - Average at best unfortunatley there is a built in tip for them in the price POOLS - Didnt want to get into them as many of the guest who were from one country were pretty unruly, dirty as they kept spitting and blowing thier noses in the pool. Once again no supervision or enforcement. DISEMBARKMENT - Once again large queues it took about 2 hours. On the whole dont travel on this ship or use this company it really wasnt worth it, Read Less
