Small Ship Cruising Your Way

When you cruise with us you’ll find we give you the freedom to shape your own days listen to a guest lecture laze by the pool join an excursion or hop ashore and go your own way

Everyone’s different, and what you want from your holiday won’t be the same as the next person. In fact, what you want from one day might not be what you want from the next. So relax, get involved if you want to, or just do your own thing. Whether you join an arts and crafts workshop, watch a culinary demonstration, get energetic at a Zumba class or just lie back and soak up some sun in the hot tub, we’ll do everything we can to help you have a great time.

Go with the experts, or go your own way

The same goes when we sail into port. You’ll find there’s always a choice of carefully arranged excursions full of expert insights and local gems. But you’ll also find you can stay on board or set out on your own, and we’ll be happy to give you all the advice and suggestions you need. Most excursions can be booked up until a couple of days before arrival into port, so you won’t have to make up your mind any time soon, and you’ll only pay for what you choose to do. Easy

When it comes to dining on board, we’ve two great restaurants for you to choose from – the elegant Discovery Restaurant or the more relaxed Veranda Restaurant, with its big ocean views and fantastic buffet. Eat inside, eat outside, even order room service. As ever, it’s all up to you.


Days at sea are perfect for unwinding by the pool, but if you’d like to try something a bit different, there’s always lots going on, from art classes to aerobics, deck games to live music…

On every cruise, you’ll find all sorts of great onboard activities. Friendly tutors lead creative classes in everything from watercolours to jewellery making and embroidery. There’s the chance to meet our chefs at beautiful fruit carving demonstrations or learn massage techniques and beauty tips from our spa therapists. We run a lively passenger choir, dance and fitness classes covering everything from ballroom to Zumba, and even photography for beginners. On selected cruises quizzes, crafts and various games are available. Our programme's different each time we sail, so whatever floats your boat, we're pretty sure you'll find it on our ship. Full details will be found in your daily programme.


Evening Entertainment

In the evenings, enjoy our excellent selection of entertainment on board. Join us for deck parties under the stars, visits by local musicians and dancers, classical recitals, live music and, of course, plenty of dancing. Evening highlights include production shows from our professional team of entertainers, live bands and a selection of live music in the lounges.

Wherever in the world we take you, we always offer a very special programme of optional shore excursions, carefully crafted with insights from local guides and renowned experts on the region. They’re your chance to experience the heart of each destination, taking in not just its iconic sights, but its hidden gems and authentic culture too.

Voyager’s cruise itineraries have been planned to maximise your time ashore, allowing you ample opportunities to explore the many fascinating and beautiful destinations you will be visiting. In some ports we are able to offer premier shore excursions allowing you to venture further afield and in some, Voyager will stay longer giving you the chance to spend more time in iconic cities and at mesmerising sites. All our shore excursions are completely optional, so it’s up to you which ones you join.

You can book your excursions before you set sail – it’s a great way to guarantee your place and we’ll even offer you a discount of up to £5 per person on each pre-booked excursion. If you want to book whilst on board Voyager you’ll find the Shore Excursion Desk immediately next to Reception on Livingstone Deck. There’s also a 24-hour booking kiosk and, of course, our Guest Speakers will give you plenty of information on each port of call during fascinating lectures on board.


We’re proud to say our chefs are some of the best in the business, creating imaginative menus full of fresh ingredients and mouthwatering flavours. Try new dishes from the destinations we’re visiting or sit back and relax with favourites from home.

Whether you choose breakfast in bed or at our buffet, we’ll serve something that sets you up for the day’s adventures. After a morning’s exploring, linger over lunch on deck or on shore. Then, come evening, reflect on the day or meet new friends for dinner in one of our restaurants. Twice each cruise there’s a glamorous gala dinner too. And with open dining, you can choose when and where to eat, as well as who to sit with, every single day.

Our elegant Discovery Restaurant offers a fantastic four-course menu that changes throughout your cruise. It’s served by an attentive but unobtrusive team, who’ll make sure every meal is really special. For something a little more laid back, our Veranda Restaurant offers a beautiful buffet of hot and cold dishes, with tables inside or al fresco. It’s a great spot for watching the sun set on another wonderful day.

Meal times vary depending on arrival and departure schedules at the ports of call but they are always detailed in the daily programme. An indication of meal times is detailed below:

On cruises departing from November 2015 onwards, to make your cruise even more special we will be offering, as standard, the services of a butler to passengers travelling in an Owner’s Suite or a Balcony Suite with Spa Bath. It’s also available as an optional extra to passengers in Junior Suites and our other Balcony Suites and is a treat we think you’ll really appreciate.


One of our fantastic Voyages of Discovery butlers is at your service from the moment you step aboard Voyager. They’ll escort you to your suite and help you to get acquainted with your surroundings. If you like, they’ll do all your unpacking while you go off and explore the ship, and they’ll re-pack for you when it’s time to go home, so you can enjoy your holiday right until the moment you disembark.

During your cruise they’re on hand to carry out all those little chores that will make your life on board more comfortable, such as keeping your suite immaculately tidy, laundry and pressing requests and even polishing your shoes.

If you have any specific dietary requirements or want a different pillow, just tell your butler, and they will sort it for you. And when you return to your cabin after a day of adventure, they will have arranged a selection of canapés and have your favourite drink chilling in your refrigerator. How’s that for service? In fact, we’d go as far to say that our butlers are so good you’ll wonder how you ever lived without one!
