The Royal Caribbean’s gigantic cruise ship, Voyager of the Seas, is a technical wonder of modern times and also the largest ocean-going cruise ship in the world, a floating hotel that accommodates 5,000 passengers.
The pulsating heart of the ship is the 120 metre long Royal Promenade, a replica of London’s Burlington Arcade, which boasts a splendid variety of shops and on decks 11 and 12, the popular Fitness Centre is the largest on the seven seas.
Particularly fascinating is the successful integration of three restaurants on three decks, an idea copied from the interior of the Paris Opera House. But the most unexpected attraction is an Ice Rink, that is also used for International Ice Revues, and the enormous atrium with all of its glittering structures of chrome and glass is like a futuristic work of art.
There’s even a casino which features Black Jack, roulette, dice, video poker and one-armed bandits and where those who are really lucky, may even win back the cost of their holiday!
A Sunday afternoon cruise on the river was never like this!
