Voyager of the Seas Arrives in Oz
The biggest and most innovative cruise ship to be based in Australia, Royal Caribbean’s Voyager of the Seas, has finally arrived.
Arriving at 6am in Port Hedland today, Friday 2 November, she literally stopped a town. Many residents of the town, encouraged by the Mayor, all took a day off work to welcome the ship and play host to the 3,200 passengers onboard – around a third of which from the USA and Europe.
Voyager of the Seas has 1556 staterooms and will introduce a host of innovations including its ‘Royal Promenade’ indoor main street, an ice rink, skating track, golf simulator and inside cabins with a view.
She will operate 12 New Zealand, South Pacific and Australian itineraries ranging from one to 18 nights, sailing from Sydney and Fremantle.
Australia’s historic first megaliner measures in at 137,000 tons, 311 metres long, 48 metres wide with 15 passenger decks. At almost double the size of any ship currently based in Australia, she hosts 3,114 guests at double capacity or over 3,800 at full capacity. Can’t wait to inspect her on her Sydney arrival, John Pond.
