M/V Voyager is the flagship of the destination specialist cruise line Voyages of Discovery. With fewer than 600 passengers and several pleasant lounges, she offers the discerning cruiser a more personal experience, and her small size allows her to sail straight into smaller ports well off the beaten track.

Cabin 4130 on the Voyager Scott's Lounge on the Voyager The Darwin Lounge on the Voyager
Cabin 4130 on the Voyager.  It was quiet, clean and comfortable and our only complaints were that the bathroom was absolutely tiny and there was only one small wardrobe to hold a fortnight’s worth of clothes for two people.
Scott’s Lounge, named after the intrepid Antarctic explorer.  We would gather here for the afternoon quiz and a drink or three, and in the evening the cocktail pianist or classical duo played relaxing background tunes.
The Darwin Lounge is the main show lounge where dancing and the evening’s entertainment took place.
Pool deck area on the Voyager Sun and games deck on the Voyager Debbie and Trevor with Captain Tkachuk
The pool deck and bar area.  The circular pool is only 1.4m deep, but it was blissful to plunge into the cool water in the tropical temperatures.
The topmost deck (Deck 8) on the ship.  From here we had great vantage points and passengers could also enjoy games of quoits and shuffleboard.
Here we are at the Captain’s Cocktail Party with the Ukrainian captain, on the first formal evening.
