Hello everyone...I got to the Pier at 11AM and the shuttles left for the pier at 12:15PM......at 12:17 I was on the ship !

My Cybercabin is not running yet....I picked it up at 1PM and have been working on it for over 2hrs......I think internet is down on the ship, but no one can tell me if it is running, and they wont send up support.... Royal Caribbean On Line is definitely down for now.....but we'll see...If I cant get it running I will take it back and use Wi [email protected] .33/min. BTW...Cybercabin for 5 night Bermuda is $70./ Unlimited. For the 9night Caribbean...it is $120./ Unlimited.

The ship is beautiful as expected...It is Nice weather .....sunny and pleasant , a perfect day for the beginning of a great cruise. I have many pics to post...but I'll see how it goes for now.....(I am Posting now with my Mobile Office Kit from Verizon Wireless(only 104 kbps))

The Muster drill is 5:30 PM and Sailaway is at 6PM.....

The Welcome aboard show is tonight at 7:45 , featuring Comedian Derrick Cameron. The CD is Allan Brooks.

The Bon Voyage parade is tonight at 11:15 in the Royale Promenade...

I will report back soon....

Thanks for tuning in !

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you Radio...we are sailing on the VOS on 10/30.

A few questions....I know you boarded quickly, but was there a separate check-in for those with the Setsail pass? Was there an appreciable difference in check-in lines that you could discern?

Also, did you notice a lot of parking traffic at 11 am when you arrived? I plan on arriving around that time also.

Also, if you wouldn't mind checking your Cruisecompass, what time did the Spa open for appointments on sail day?

I am also curious to find out if kids were permitted in the solarium at all during your cruise....

Thanks! I look forward to more pics and info....

Hi Radio
Just picked up your thread today, I am booking Voyager for next July in the next few days & looking at a D2 balcony cabin on deck 7 or 8. What's your cabin like for space, decor, comfort & position.
Thanks in advance & I hope you have a great time on your cruise........Ted

Hello Teddie....There was no no separate line for "SetSail" Pass....They scanned the pass, and asked for my VISA......and handed me my Sea Pass card....It took under 1 minute....I was impressed..

I went to the Diamond/Suite Line...and there were only about 20 people in there. There was no Shuttle numbers handed out...We just left on the first shuttle.

There was little incoming traffic...But there was a ton of people leaving.....It was a little hectic due to that.....But I was able to park very..very close, the first row next to the terminal....

The Spa had tours from 1-5PM...Spa was open from 6-8PM.

Hi all!

Radio--you are the best. I checked back a few hours ago to show DH how nice and easy the boarding process looks. I was so happy to see more pictures! We have been on the Voyager before and we loved it! We will see her soon enough. Looking forward to reading more.
Thanks!
By the way- anjo615 and HappyFamilyNJ, I too will be on the 10/16 sailing, see you there.

Radio or ssoceo, would love to know what the wireless hot spots are if you see a list.

Did you drop luggage then park, or park and drag your luggage being so close?

Feel free to knock on 1368 and tell them to keep the room clean for me, and that I'll need them out by Friday noon! haha

The hot spots are
1. Viking Crown Lounge

2. Solarium

3. Cafe Promenade

4. Pig and Whistle Pub

5.Schooner Bar

6.Conference Center

7. Royale Promenade (Deck 5)

The speed ( 11Mbps) is much faster than Cybercabin (40Kbps)

The weather today is clody, rainy, with lots of fog. Temps are 58f. We are about 420 km from Kings Wharf, Bermuda. The expected time of arrival is 8AM

The seas are somewhat rough....not too bad though.
I had dinner last night in the Windjammer, it was very good !

I was up at 4AM on Embarkation day....I slept like a baby last night...

The welcome aboard show was entertaining...and the CD is very good !

Radio, if you happen to be in a bar would you mind checking to see if they are serving michelob ultra? I would like to know in advance so when we get on the ship I can have a plan. I am either a white wine or mich ultra drinker. I have a terrible time trying to make a decision if my prefered beverage is not available. I thank you in advance. Have a good day at sea!!

Yes they have Michelob ultra in bottles in the Viking Crown Lounge ( I checked while using their WiFi)

The sun is coming out now....but very windy. Bermuda weather for tomorrow is forecast for 82f and partly cloudy. I can live with that !
Her's a few pics from the cruise so far....

I'll check in tonight !
