Voyager Seven Seas Suites

Recommended Posts

We are thinking of postponing a cruise originally sailing this fall to the following year (2021). If we do this, we’ll be sailing on the Voyager. We’ve had 9 previous cruises on Regent, but this will be our first on the Voyager. Anyone have experience or knowledge of the Seven Seas suites (either fore or aft). Any suggestions or comments would be appreciated... Thanks, Steve

Aft suites are absolutely beautiful with wrap around balcony; if I could swing it I would take one of them in a heartbeat.  Voyager has slight vibration aft but it has never bothered us.  If you get cabin 673, you can be in Horizon Lounge in around ten seconds using a very convenient crew stairway (which we have used many times).

Forward Seven Seas suites on Voyager have 1 1/2 bathrooms  The aft suites have only one bathroom.  If you select a forward suite, there is no issue of vibration.

 

Note:  For Mariner, it is the opposite.  Aft Seven Seas suites have 1 1/2 bathrooms while the forward suites do not.  Seven Seas suites on Mariner are amazing - one of our favorite suites.

Penthouse C suites rear facing are also good we have been in 1055 just under La veranda- no problem with a wrap around balcony great aft views and lots of room, ideal for a private dinner on the balcony from the butler and a chez - long as well. Voyager is with the Mariner our favourite ship, not so much bling and wasted space as Explorer and presumably the Splendour and it has great public areas and a really good theatre. Equally there is an emergency/ staff stairway to the horizon lounge - great for a quick one if your fridge runs dry !!!!

We always avoid suites under a lounge for dining area.  Did you not hear noise from above you when La Veranda was being set up etc.?

No disturbance at all on Voyager and been in 1055 twice for a total of 22 nights. Most of this suite is under the outside seating area at the back of La veranda, as the large balcony sticks out beyond the aft rails in this area but the side wrap around is totally private unless you absail down. We had far more disturbance on Explorer when we were under the smoking room with the large chesterfield chairs being scrapped across the floor and then staff realigning them at midnight , so vowed not to ever go in this suite again. Think t was 1003.

We were in a Seven Seas Forward Suite for a British Isles cruise on Voyager; it was really nice.  I was having issues with my laptop, and was able to use the provided computer in the suite to seek forums with knowledgeable posters who helped me fix it.  It didn't have the huge wrap-around deck of the Mariner, but we totally liked it; it had plenty of space.

Thank you all for your helpful comments. I‘m thinking we’ll go with the “aft” suite. Our previous cruises have always been in suites toward the front of the ship. This will be a nice change. Appreciate the information on the “secret” stairway to the Horizon Lounge as well. Now just hoping we all stay safe and cruising is back to normal by then!!

Am I missing something here?  If this is in fact a 'crew stairway' why would you A) use it in the first place, and B) tell others to use it?  Seems to me that if it's a 'crew stairway', it should be used by crew, not passengers.

A)  Because it is convenient.

 

B)  I thought we used this site to provide what we have learned so others can use the information if they want.

 

This is an egress stairwell and not used by crew in normal duty.  I have run into staff on the stairwell as they sometimes are put in those rear Deck 6 cabins when ship is not full.

Well, your view on this obviously differs from mine.  To me, just because something is convenient doesn't mean it's fair game.  I see a sign that says "Crew Only", I'm not going to use it if I'm not crew.  

 

To each his own, I guess.

Same here.

 

I remember reading somewhere on Voyager (either in cabin literature or on a sign elsewhere) explicitly asking guests to not enter areas signed as crew only. I thought "Well, duh, that's obvious" but I see why they even have to mention it 😕

We got escorted through the crew stairwells this past January as part of our muster drill and I felt odd being in the 'crew only' area even with a crew escort.  Guess I'm just wired differently...

I must have similar wiring as there is no way I would assume that I could use the crew areas unless in the case of an emergency.  Fortunately, most people seem to feel the same way that we do as I do not see passengers entering any "Crew Only" areas.

Bill, Back in the day when I was a flight attendant, we had to demonstrate to people how to use a seat belt.  We did that for every flight.  And, I still had to explain to individuals how to use a seatbelt.  Yes.  The general public is that obtuse. 

 

If it's marked crew use only, it's not for guests.

Yep, I totally believe that.  I always felt that seatbelt use should be optional - let Darwinism run its course.

Agreed.

 

Paying $$$$$ to be on board, not working, relaxing, reading, laughing, drinking, overeating = guest.

Being paid to be on board, working your ass off, grabbing a quick meal/nap when you can = crew.

 

Gotcha.  Thanks.  🙂
