Royal Caribbean's 3,258-passenger Voyager of the Seas is the perfect ship for young and young-at-heart travellers with attractions including a FlowRider surf simulator, The Perfect Storm duo of twin-racer waterslides, a rock climbing wall, full-size basketball court, ice skating rink, and Battle for Planet Z laser tag. The ship is ideally suited to families with superb children's facilities catering to youngsters aged 6 months and up. However, there are things for cruisers of all ages to enjoy on this versatile ship.

Plenty of sun decks and an ample number of pools lend themselves to fun in the sun. Relaxation can be found on one of the many deck chairs that line the top decks or in the serene surrounds of the Vitality Spa and Fitness Centre.

The Royal Promenade on Deck 5 stretches from one end of the ship to the other, providing an enjoyable place to stroll and check out the action at the adjoining café, bars, shops, and boutiques. There are no windows, but it's always dazzlingly lit up and sets the scene for live bands during the day and dance parties at night. Inside cabins feature 'virtual balconies' -- a real-time video of the view outside projected onto two-metre LED screens framed with curtains to look like a real verandah.

With so much fun to be had around the ship, you probably won't be in there much anyway. Combine these affordable cabins with loads of free activities and an even number of complimentary and for-a-fee restaurants, and it's no surprise Voyager of the Seas is a hit with budget-conscious travellers. You don't need to spend a lot to have a great time onboard this ship. Voyager of the Seas is bright and breezy and caters to a diverse range of cruisers with ease. With a focus on fun, socialising, and spending time together, it's a ship where the good times roll. Whether you are holidaying with the kids, cruising with friends, or seeking an entertaining getaway with your partner, this ship delivers.

**Daytime:** Casual, with shorts and tees inside the ship and bathing suits and cover-ups on the pool deck.

**Evening:** Mostly casual except on 'formal' nights when men wear long pants and collared shirts and women are expected to dress up a bit; suits, sport jackets, and gowns are not required. The 'formal' dress standard is a suggestion rather than compulsory and not enforced.

**Not permitted:** Swimwear is only allowed in open deck and pool areas.

Voyager of the Seas offers a head-spinning array of activities that run from dawn to dusk and beyond. The ship's entertainment staff offers an intriguing blend of options, and everyone, from the most traditional passenger to the completely contemporary traveller, will find something to do.

**Theater** The main theatre spans three levels and offers a mix of production shows and guest performers such as singers, magicians, and aerial acts. There is also an ice skating show in Studio B that showcases the skill of the cast of nine outstanding skaters who make jumping and spinning around the tiny rink look easy.

**Daily Fun** During the day, you'll find plenty of activities: think bingo, dance lessons, art auctions, seminars (on everything from healthy eating to gemstones), belly flops and sexy man contests, rock-climbing wall competitions, bridge play, and films on the pool deck or in the main theatre. Battle for Planet Z, a laser tag experience, is available at select times in Studio B; there is no need to book. The Cupcake Cupboard on Deck 11 offers cupcake decorating classes for a fee. Poolside, a live band plays popular songs when the weather is good.

**At Night** Things are jumping late into the night at High Notes on Deck 14 with a DJ or party band playing pop and light rock until well after midnight. A guitarist entertains in the British Pig & Whistle pub -- anyone for a sing-along? For those who want to catch the big game, the Schooner Bar and The Tavern have big-screen TVs. The casino opens when the ship is not in port and offers everything from slots to gaming tables.
