Default So many ?? about the Voayger

OK---we just booked the Voyager for next summer...going to Bermuda. It is only a five night cruise...and we will be in Bermuda for 2 days. Can anyone tell me if the ship will still serve meals while we are docked? Will the pools and ice-skating rink be open while we are docked? Will there be shows in the evenings? We want to enjoy the ship...but are afraid with this itinerary...there won't be much time! Oh well...we will just have to go again sometime! Really...any advice or ideas will be greatly appreciated! This is our first RCCL cruise...have done a few Carnival cruises before...we will love it...Won't we?????

Yes, meals will be served while you are docked. There will be meals in the formal dining room at your assigned time and table every night of the cruise, no matter where the ship is. The buffets are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day also. They pools will be closed when you are in dock. I am not sure about the ice skating rink, but I think it will probably be closed while in port. We were on the Explorer last year on a Western Caribbean, and they are sister ships.

Have a great cruise. I love the voyager class. The Royal Promenade down the middle of the ship is fantastic. I would have to say you will just LOVE IT!

You will love the ship. She, like others in that class are absolutely amazing. I've always preferred smaller ships but not any more. Wish there were more itinerary choices so I could be on them more. Food is served on the ship at all the regular times, Not sure about the pools or ice rinks.

Why would the pools be closed while in dock? Have never had that experience on any other ship - actually, I find it to be the perfect time to enjoy some uncrowded pool time.

We have NEVER experienced a pool closed while in port on RCI. In fact, weather premitting, they have at least 1 pool open 24 hours. Ice skating is only offered at selected times throughout the day and there should be times available when docked. Since Bermuda is a new itinerary for the Voyager-I can only rely on other ships/ports but usually Rock Climbing, skating, etc all have available hours while in port. The only thing that is generally closed while in port are the shops and the casino but depending on the port, they may even open later in the evening. I know when docked in Nassau until 1 AM, the casino opened at 6PM.

You will LOVE Voyager! You might want to check out my postings under " VOS 7/30, Ocho Rios Jamaica" and "VOS what to pack for the cruise" questions above for additional information on activities, etc. We've been on this ship 2 years in a row and it is AMAZING! The pools will definitely be open (and practically deserted while in port so great for relaxing and quiet pool/jacuzzi time), the rock climbing wall should be open (be sure to pack socks, you will need them for rock climbing, ice skating and in-line skating) for part of the port day, I'm not sure about the in-line skating and ice-skating but probably so. There will probably be a movie offered in the movie theater while in port (that's what was offered on the Western Caribbean route anyway). If nothing else, take a nap - you'll welcome the energy for the evening's activitites!
