The Voyages of Discovery website offers readers the following in way of an introduction to this lovely ship:
All Leisure Holidays Limited are proud to introduce a new addition to the Voyages of Discovery fleet – Voyager. Formerly the Alexander von Humboldt, she will be extensively upgraded and will be joining us in December 2012 to provide an even wider choice of itineraries to destinations worldwide.
Voyager, built by Spanish yard Union Navale le Levante in 1990, is a spacious and well-appointed vessel offering 278 cabins, 30 of which have outside balconies, open seating dining in three restaurants and the personal service and comfort levels that have been the hallmark of our cruises since 2003. Carrying just 550 passengers, Voyager has all the amenities and facilities of a larger liner, whilst offering the convenience and flexibility of a small ship. She is able to visit and berth alongside where others have to pass by, yet is able to traverse the world’s oceans with ease. On board our passengers will be able to relax in the comfortable public lounges, enjoy a drink in atmospheric Harry’s Bar and in the sunshine on deck at the Lido Bar, or read a good book in the well-stocked library.
The ship sounds and looks impressive but for me one feature that really stands out, her black anchors. It’s not very often you come across black anchors on a cruise ship and Voyager manages to “sport” them very well.
Having undertaken her extensive refit and emerged an entirely new vessel she is now ready to sail you off around the world and her itinerary options certainly do not disappoint. This ship on individual itineraries just about circum-navigates the globe!
She will start her journey by crossing the Atlantic and heading towards the Caribbean, from here she will explore South America and the Amazon before continuing on to itinerary options that will include the British Isles, Mediterranean, Africa, India, The Orient and Baltic.
With her introduction complete, I suppose the only thing left to say is sorry I could not be there to share in your moment but, GOOD LUCK Voyager and happy sailing!!
