Default RCCL Voyager or Golden Princess

Just got a call with a great rate for a balcony cabin on the RCCL Voyager
Had pretty much decided on the Golden Princess - I do realize they are totally different itin's.
If you had your choice what would you choose????

It depends on what you are looking for in a cruise - if it is a great rate and you don't mind the little differences between the two lines, then go for it! After all, a week on a cruise is better than a week on land!

I am looking to impress my husband with cruising as he has only been on one and I hated it. I've been on 17 and love them. Haven't saided any of the newer ships though as I've been out of cruising for the last 5-8 yrs except for a couple of 5 day one's

I need to have something that'll make my hubby fall in love with cruising

thanks

Is he active? Or does he prefer to relax? If you want to really wow him with all the activities and the promenade and Johnny Rockets and the ice skating show, go with the Voyager. If he prefers it a little more sedate (still lots of activities, but plenty of quiet areas), then go with the Golden. jmho

I agree with Lisa. If you like to do things but prefer a more relaxed atmosphere, go with Princess.
If he enjoys a "mall" atmosphere and rollerblading, rockclimbing, etc, then RCCL.
The middle of the Voyager looks like a big shopping mall to me. Not relaxing.

Tough one -

Have done Grand and Explorer (sister to Voyager).

Grand is "classier" and has better food. It is quieter, more laid back and not as action packed.

Explorer/Voyager is more spectacular, action packed, full of activities and has better entertainment. Generally more kids/families on Voyager.

I like Princess food better and fresh water pools - so I lean towards Princess. Though Royal Carribean Explorer/Voyager would be a very close second.

Can't go wrong.
