We went on this cruise with some friends because we wanted to take a cruise in Asia and it had to be in a very limited 3 week time frame.
Cruising out of Hong Kong to Japan was very easy because it required no special visas.
First, the cruise itself was very enjoyable. We all enjoyed the ports of call and the cruise staff. However, the Voyager itself is in a sad state. I had seen the reviews beforehand lamenting the state of the ship, and I took them with a grain of salt. Once I got on the ship, I saw for myself that she is in a state of fairly bad disrepair, especially for a Royal Ship. I know that she is going into dry dock very soon to get 'amped' but that is no reason for the company to let the ship fall into this state.
