THE port of Palma yesterday received the cruise ship Voyager of the Seas, owned by the Royal Caribbean company, which has a capacity for 3'840 passengers and 1'181 crew, making her the second biggest cruise ship in the world, second only to the Queen Mary 2, according to Port Authority sources. According to the company, the Voyager of the Seas is one of the most “surprising” cruise ships in the world, and serves as an example to other modern cruise ships to add novelties such as an ice skating rink, a climbing wall and an “impressive” four deck promenade, called the Royal Promenade, which comprises a selection of shops, restaurants, and entertainment areas. It has a five deck high theatre with 1'350 seats. The ship has 1'557 double cabins, some measuring more than 100 square metres. Of these, 757 are situated on the outside with balconies. The crew are accommodated in 667 cabins, fitted with TV. The Voyager of the Seas arrived in Palma at 10am yesterday and left at 6pm. From July 21 she will have six more stops in Palma, her home port being Barcelona. As is traditional, the Balearic Port Authority delivered a plaque to the Captain to commemorate the ship's first visit to the port of Palma.
