Re: 1st time cruisers
I was on the Voyager of the Seas in May 2002 for my first cruise and now, won't go on a land vacation or another cruiseline (unless they are free!)
Serious, food was fine, just be prepared to eat to your hearts content.
Not sure what itinery you have so can't answer that for you. But do check out the following.
Do get tix to see the ice show. Its free.
Johnny Rockets is fun to day one day..Good luck in getting seats during peak times.
Read your Compass Magazine everynight (delivered to your room after dinner) and watch when some of the activies and show tickets become available.
Try the Free Ice skating and Wall climbing if you have a chance. If not, I enjoyed watching people try the wallclimbing.
If you like bingo, Wait to the last day or two cause more than likely the jackpot wasn't won and someone will win it.
Walk around the ship and don't forget the small nook and cranny spaces on desks 13, 14 & 15.
At dinner, try whatever you like and remember, if you don't like it you can ask for something else and if you do like it, ask for more!!!
