When evening falls Seven Seas Voyager comes to life. Guests descend from their private verandahs and luxury suites to mix & mingle with their fellow shipmates over another wonderful dinner. After an espresso or two people can be seen congregating in the Constellation Theater to watch a  production show. Radisson Seven Seas Cruises has spent a lot of money to enhance the entertainment offerings on board. Showing tonight: the Peter Grey Terhune Singers & Dancers in "Lullaby of Broadway".

Almost every seat in the cavernous two deck high Constellation Theater guarantees an excellent view of the stage, seating all passengers in one session. Personable Cruise Director Barry Hopkins introduces the show with a lot of panache and once the entertainment gets underway we have to agree: "Lullaby of Broadway" is a great production. With strong, powerful vocals and upbeat choreography this show is a notch above many other seagoing revues. Apart from classical recitals and variety acts, Radisson Seven Seas offers three production shows on a typical cruise

After the show most guests wander to the various lounges and bars. The Observation Lounge is popular with people looking for a quiet, peaceful retreat and some engaging conversation with fellow guests. Others descend to deck 4, where the Casino has opened for business. Besides the usual array of one-armed bandits, Seven Seas Voyager also boasts gambling tables, including roulette and Black Jack.

Directly opposite the Casino is the most lively bar on the ship: the Voyager Lounge. Waitress Wan from Thailand wins my award for most cheerful crew member hands down and the discrete disco tunes are popular amongst the regulars of this fine seagoing bar. No wonder it's "Full House" every night here!

Perched between the Casino and Constellation Theater is the Connoisseur Club, a long narrow room with a beautiful parquet floor, Persian rugs, oversized leather chairs and a faux fireplace. Right, you've guessed it: smoker's heaven! The Connoisseur Club stays open every night until 1 a.m. for guests wanting for a drink and a smoke.

One of my personal favorites is the Horizon Lounge, all the way aft on deck 5. During the day, the room exudes an almost serene atmosphere with its wooden shutters discreetly filtering the sunlight. But comes nighttime, the mood is definitely upbeat when Double Time takes to the stage and the dance floor quickly fills. The beautiful bar serves as a cocktail bar for Signatures Restaurant next door, while every afternoon between 4 and 5 p.m. a real English High Tea is served. Don't miss out on the warm scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam!

Looking back on the fantastic time Barbara and I had on Seven Seas Voyager, I can only highly recommend a cruise on this beautiful ship. People that enjoy an all-in vacation in elegant surroundings will love it and as an added bonus this floating luxury hotel will bring them to the most beautiful ports of call. From their first steps in the cruise business ten years ago, Radisson Seven Seas Cruises has come a long way and is now firmly settled in the top of the cruise industry. With sublime suite accommodation, great itineraries, wonderful crew, delicious food and down to earth approach to luxury, I am convinced Seven Seas Voyager will be an instant hit amongst the up market traveling public. She does not offer "country house cruising" with only a handful of passengers, but Seven Seas Voyager's larger size enables a multitude of dining, accommodation and entertainment options that make for a truly unique ship.
