We’ve been on board Regent Seven Seas Voyager for just over a week now and that’s given us time to post some photographs of this beautiful ship on this romantic getaway on the high seas. After a couple of busy days at the holiday destinations of Geraldton and Fremantle, we had a picture perfect day to photograph the main pool deck with plenty of sunshine and a deep blue sky.

(We have a cruise review blog if you want to post comments or ask any questions.)

With hot sunny days for the first part of this itinerary from Bali to Melbourne, the pool deck has been the hub of activity but at least there are no shortage of deck chairs, which can happen on some of the bigger ships. It’s all part of a refined atmosphere and even on the busy days you notice that service levels on Voyager remain high, with a staff-to-guest ratio of 1.6 which is one of the highest in the industry.

This is the type of cruise experience that’s difficult to match: one afternoon we ordered two glass of bubbly from our butler for the sunset. A few minutes later he arrives with a bottle, an ice bucket and a selection of crab claws and prawns and all laid out on our balcony.

It’s part of the reason why Voyager was named “Best Cruise Ship in the Large Ship” category for 2010 by Condé Nast Traveler, and helped the Regent cruise line to also take out out “Best Large Ship Cruise Line”, and she’s been winning awards consistently since launching in 2003.

A typical day goes something like this: You wake and have breakfast delivered to your suite which is set up on the balcony; head to Coffee Corner for a caffeine hit before attending a cooking class held by a celebrity chef or maybe take a language or computer class; do a spot of lunch at La Veranda at the back of the ship overlooking the ship’s wake; hit the Canyon Ranch SpaClub for a bit of pampering or the fully-equipped gym for a workout; relax and read by the pool and jacuzzis and maybe have a hit of paddle tennis or work on your golf swing; order a cocktail at sunset before getting ready to hit one of the four restaurants followed by a Broadway-style show in the theatre or a nightcap in the elegant Observation Bar with its stunning 270 degree views.

And in between on a romantic getaway like this you have the chance to experience some great holiday destinations like Kangaroo Island, which is our next port of call.
