Entertainment on the High Seas!
The Voyager of the Seas had a wide array of activities taking place at any given hour of the day. If it wasn’t for the daily newspaper named The Compass, guests would be totally at a loss about what activity was taking place at a particular time. The ship catered to all age groups, from toddlers to the elderly in an effort to ensure than no one felt left out.
For the children, there was a kids room which contained all the latest game systems such as the Wii and PS3, complete with countless games to choose from. There were also old fashioned arcade games including air hockey tables and racing bikes. Staff members would hold special outings for the young ones, so that their parents could have some time to themselves as well. For the teens, there was a disco where everyone from 12-17 would spend the evenings dancing to the latest songs.
Young adults such as myself had a wide array of activities to be distracted with. From rock climbing and roller blading on the top deck, to the various shows which were held every evening. It would require lots of hard work to remain bored on the ship. The night club was especially nice with flashing lights, brightly coloured LEDs and awesome bartenders. The DJ knew what he was about, and managed to have everyone on the dancefloor. Even a gentleman who appeared to be around 70 something, was getting his groove on!
The nightly shows were pretty amazing. There were two Broadway shows during the cruise, and the costumes and actors were great. Good voices, talented acts and decent dancing were all part of the plan. Voyager of the Seas also has a Promenade in the middle of the ship where themed parades take place. My favourite parade was Caribbean themed, complete with carnival costumes and stilt walkers!
One of the best shows in my opinion, was called The Quest. It was an adult game show, where the audience was split into six teams and given certain tasks to complete. Some of the tasks were simple enough, such as to bring as many lipsticks as possible from your group to the game host. Others were more insane, requiring the men to shuck their pants and the group who counted the most pants would get more points!
However, during a cruise, there are moments where you simply want to take it easy. For the more low key guests, there were bingo games and a very large casino. It turned out that quite a few people had some luck, as a few people went to the cashier to collect their winnings. A library was also available with a wide range of books and board games to choose from. The elderly were quite in their element in these activities.
I had a great time on the sports deck. I attempted to roller blade, with the help of a kind member of staff. The roller blading area was heavily padded, I’m guessing for newbies such as myself. I had more luck with the rock climbing however, as I managed to reach the top and ring the bell! While I caught my breath from the rock climbing, I saw a group of youths uitlizing the basketball court a few feet away, and the game was quite competitve!
On a whole, The Voyager of the Seas has a very well rounded entertainment scene, and everyone will have something to do which suits their personailty!
