In addition to traditional onboard activities, the Seven Seas Voyager also had two "special" events we all enjoyed. The first night at sea we had a "block party". Everyone gathers in the corridors of the ship near their cabin and meets their neighbors. The crew serve wine and snacks. The captain, hotel manager, and cruise director practically run from party to party in order to cover all of the decks. It's great fun and a perfect icebreaker.
The second special event was a country fair one afternoon out on the deck. Each department on the ship (e.g. bar, housekeeping) built a booth with funny games you might find at a fair. Passengers voted on the best booth and the winning team got a prize. Both the block party and the country fair were great fun!
Our Seven Seas Voyager cruise was very special, and the Captain and his senior staff were among the best I've seen. Captain Dag Dvergastein and Hotel Director Engelbert Lainer-Wartenberg are extremely approachable, and their love for the ship and desire to make the cruise a memorable experience for the passengers were appreciated by all. How many cruise ship captains will join in the fun in the pool or don in-line roller skates and a dragon costume and skate through the theater to celebrate Chinese New Year? Not many! I'm sure that the senior officers, along with Cruise Director Jamie Logan and his wife the World Cruise Hostess Dana Logan, are some of the main reasons cruisers return year after year to sail on the Seven Seas Voyager.
