 MAGNIFICENT! GO CRUISING FOR THE HOLIDAY OF A LIFETIME!
**************************************************************************** 

VOYAGER OF THE SEAS IS LEGENDARY AND ONE OF THE WORLD'S MOST FAMOUS AND LUXURIOUS  SHIPS.I KNOW AS I HAVE SAILED ON HER FROM MIAMI/FORT LAUDERDALE! TRULY ONE OF THE GREATEST SHIPS EVER BUILT AND I LOVE HER! 

When I boarded Voyager of the Seas from Miami, Florida, USA, I was stunned from the instant I entered the luxury floating hotel cum resort cum playground cum themepark cum shopping mall that I wished I could sail on it for a month! 

Many of the perks, facilities and amenities we now take for granted had their genesis in Voyager of the Seas, the same way Queen Elizabeth II started the luxury leisure cruise industry as the first super big and luxurious ship.

Since every businessman takes the nearest flight, leisurely cruises are meant for holidaymakers and those with the most precious commodity in their hands---time! 

Sailing at around 28 knots per hour, it takes nearly a week sailing 24/7 from Southampton to New York! 

And so Voyager of the Seas initiated the start of the 21st century sailing with previously unheard of features like rock-climbing, ice-skating, mini-golf course, Vitality Spa and unparalleled shopping in Royal Promenade with parades, dancing and festivities ala Rio Carnival.

and now you don't even have to wait and pray for the perfect wave---it is all here onboard Voyager of the Seas with the patented FlowRide so you can surf, boogie board or wake board.

If you are a lazy couch potato and still fancy the great outdoors, get a drink and fries and watch sports on the gigantic 220 sq ft outdoor screen!

Two new and amazingly incredible additions not available when I sailed on its inaugural maiden voyage are virtual balcony staterooms and panoramic ocean view staterooms with floor to ceiling windows! So even if you are slumming it up in an inside room, you will not feel claustrophobic or cramped.

Enjoy the sights of being at sea with expansive (and expensive!) views of the ocean from the comfort of your stateroom! 

Voyager of the Seas is the first to introduce The Tavern, a gastronomic pub with upscale sports bar atmosphere. Izumi offers some of the best Japanese food on the high seas while Giovanni's Table is an authentic trattoria featuring Italian classics. Chops Grille is the ship's signature steakhouse and R Bar is all about retro-funk.

The spectacular Main Dining Room offers multi-course complimentary for breakfast, lunch and dinner and ditto for informal for Windjammer Cafe, Cafe Promenade and room service.

Each night I was at Main Theatre to enjoy comlimentary Broadway style shows and entertainment while Studio B offers free ice skating shows. 

Feeling lucky? There is the 10,000 sq ft casino Royale with 16 tables and 274 slots. With 13 bars, clubs and lounges with no cover charges or entry fees, there is barely time to sleep! 

Voyager of the Seas’ homeport season business in Hong Kong in 2015 was absolutely outstanding, with over 55,000 travellers signing up for 17 cruises. In the summer, the visit of Quantum of the Seas®, the newest and technologically advanced ship of the Royal Caribbean, became the talk of the town.

Dr. Zinan Liu, President, North APAC & China of Royal Caribbean International said, “We are so confident in the Hong Kong cruise market we decided to extend the homeport season of Voyager of the Seas from three months to over four months, and in addition bring our newest ship, Ovation of the Seas, here by the end of this year. 

"Having two ships here will enable us to increase our programme in Hong Kong from 20  to 30 sailings . This means we could be welcoming over 100,000 vacationers this year which is about a 65% increase compared to last year.”

Xin Dau Ji – Authentic Cantonese delicacies on board
Voyager of the Seas is striving to raise the bar even higher in terms of excellence to meet the demands of local guests. Hong Kong vacationers crave sumptuous dining experiences and fast Internet speeds. So now Voyager of the Seas will offer both.

For the first-time-ever, Royal Caribbean is partnering on board with the award-winning Cantonese culinary experts, Xin Dau Ji, to provide over 20 exquisite signature dishes, including fried scallops, fish fillets with corn, steamed chicken in Lotus leaves, pan-fried fresh shrimp and more.

Balwin Yeung, Director of Sales & Marketing of Royal Caribbean Cruises Hong Kong Ltd. said, “Hong Kong vacationers expect the very best at this level of cruising which is why we have invited Xin Dau Ji to answer their culinary desires, especially their craving for truly authentic Chinese cuisine. 

"Both Royal Caribbean and Xin Dau Ji are noted for their innovative approaches and share the same target group of customers in middle-class families. With these values in common and a similar customer base we should be perfect partners, in achieving a win-win collaboration.”

To ensure guests can enjoy the perfect meal with their friends, Voyager of the Seas has also introduced the all-new “E-sea dining” seat arrangement for on board restaurants. Guests can get seats with companions when they come to the restaurant instead of only getting a designated table. The main menu has also been upgraded to Quantum Class, and redesigned to a picture-oriented menu for more appealing reading.

Introducing VOOM, The fastest Internet at Sea
From 1 May, 2016, all Royal Caribbean cruise liners including Voyager of the Seas® and Ovation of the Seas® will be equipped with the fastest Internet network at sea, so guests can share their cruising experience instantly with their friends and family on shore. 

The new VOOM internet system is around 7 times faster than the industry average with a latency of less than 150 milliseconds. Guests will be able to pay a package price per day, per device starting from just  HK$60 (US$7.5) - another first in the industry – for an exceptional internet experience.

A Taste of Heaven with C AllStar
Royal Caribbean, is always striving to offer exciting new experiences for cruise lovers. And now they’re launching another first: a taste of cruising trip for potential customers who are new to cruise vacations.
On 1st July the Voyager of the Seas® will offer travellers an opportunity to enjoy the cruising experience at a taster level.  The sampler cruise will not travel to an actual destination. Instead, travellers can simply enjoy the on-board experience in a luxurious 2-night trip at an entry price starting from just HK$1,159 or RM 585 (excluding tax).
In another breakthrough, Royal Caribbean has announced its collaboration with the popular young boy band, C AllStar to entertain travellers on board. It will be the first theme-cruise of Royal Caribbean’s new Hong Kong homeport season. 

The positive image and the energetic charisma of C AllStar matches perfectly with the vitality of Royal Caribbean’s brand image. The inspiring story of the young band represents the spirit of diligence and perseverance of Hong Kongers, which also symbolises Royal Caribbean International’s determination to stay in Hong Kong and their vision to “Cruise Extraordinary”.

The Voyager of the Seas is credited with many firsts in the Royal Caribbean fleet. It was the first ship to have the rock climbing wall, an ice skating rink and a mini golf course.
