The Voyager class refers to a design of post-Panamax cruise ships owned and operated by Royal Caribbean International cruiselines. The Voyager class ships were built at Kvaerner Masa Yard’s (now STX Finland Cruise Oy) facility in Turku, Finland. The ships have a diesel-electric powertrain. They are powered by six Wärtsilä Vasa 46 diesel engines, giving a total output of 75,600 kW. The generated electric power drives three 14 MW ABB Azipod azimuth thrusters (two steerable and one fixed).



The Voyager Class began sailing to the Caribbean, but with the introduction of newer ships in the class as well as the introduction of the Freedom Class, some of the ships migrated to Cape Liberty Cruise Port in New Jersey then to Europe while others such as Navigator of the Seas are in the process of migrating directly to Europe. Adventure of the Seas is based in Malaga during Summer.
