Navigator of the Seas Westrn Caribbean April Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 06, 2014


With each cruise that we take on Royal Caribbean, we feel less and less pampered, and after all why do you take a cruise?  The amenities have steadily declined.  These are little things but part of the total package that makes you feel valued.  On this cruise there were never any ice sculptures, nor were there any fruit and vegetable carvings, which are always fun to look at and lets you know that the food staff values presentation as well as the taste of the food.  Our cruise 2 years ago on several occasions had fruit and vegetable carvings on display.  (I can understand why no ice carvings as in previous years.)

Another example was the rarity of the towel creatures, which are always fun to find when you come back to the room at night.  Of the 7 nights, we had only 3 creatures, unlike just 2 years ago when there was a surprise every evening!

One other thing that I noticed--I like to have a crafty class. In previous sailings, the first kit was free and then you paid for the second.  Not this time.  Nor were supplies provided to actually make-in this case- cards.  No plain scissors, no appropriate glue or double sided tape.  I left after about 3 minutes and brought my kit home to finish--not exactly an activity to do aboar the ship on an at sea day!

 

Because I like crafty things, I was dissapointed that on the last dayof sailing, two such demonstrations were scheduled at the same time--towel folding demo and a fruit & vegetable carving demo.  I couldn't be in two places at once.

 

The entertainment in the main theatre has declined as well.  As we talked around our table in the evening (we had My Time Dining so met quite a few people) many of our table mates thought the same way.  We actually walked out of 3 of the 7 performances.  I will say that the acts in the various lounges were as good or even better than the theatre acts.  The best performers for the ship's production teams were the ice skaters.  We enjoyed the ice show.

Another nice cruise on the Navigator.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 06, 2014


This was the third time we had cruised on this ship.  The first was in 2003 when the ship was only a couple years old.  Last year we took a 16 day Transatlantic, and enjoyed both immensely.  This time, we took advantage of last minute pricing.  The ship was just refurbished in December of last year, and looks great with all the new carpet and other fresh touches.  The new Sabor restaurant is outstanding.  On this trip, there seemed to be many crew members in training, and although the service we received was great, there seemed to be something "off" with them.  There seemed to be morale problems...you noticed it when they weren't engaged with a guest.  Not many smiles.  Also, they need to update the mattresses and the pillows...both are too hard for my taste.  I am a big fan of RCCL, and cruise with them pretty much exclusively.  Although this cruise was not the best one I have taken with them, it was still significantly better than those I have taken with other cruise lines.  And I would still recommend them highly.

Fun Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 06, 2014


Fun cruise great food. Entertainment shows weak. Movie nights nice but no service. dinig staff ok but windjammer staff excellent. Great treatment from Nemanja ( Milo ) made dining there better than dining room. He was exceptional all the way around. Shore excurtions nice but travel time to locations long travel time to and from leave little time at excurtion. Beautiful boat and layout. Too bad not worth upgrading room to balcony cause husband smokes and cant on balcony so not worth it. smoking ares small and crowded, not like Carnival. but nice cruise and relaxing.

Cruise trip 2014

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 06, 2014


This was my wife's and I 5th cruise and was able to visit the ports of Rotan Honduras,  Belize City and Cozemel , Mexico.   Had a fantanstic time and weather was great.   The excursion we took in Rotan was at Natalie bay.   The staff there were very friendly, all could speak great English.  While my wife and the others stayed at swimming pool and relaxed.  My folks and I went snorkling.  I have been snorkling before but the clear water made it fantanstic.   I was able to see 30 feet down and had my go pro camera with me to take video of things I never have seen before.   Belize City was good,  In Cozumel we were able to see the Mayan ruins.   The staff on the ship had one thing on their adgenda,  to make sure all guests had a great time and they succeded.   I used the Fitness room everyday to try and keep the weight off from all the available food on the ship.   The renovated Navigator was a joy to sail in.   Time to book our next cruise.

Wedding on board ship

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 06, 2014


This cruise was our second with Royal Caribbean. It like the first one, was out of Galveston for 7 days. The staff on this ship was even better than the first cruise with RC. The ship was clean, there were plenty of activities for everyone to enjoy or watch regardless of age. Our reasons for the 3 star rating:

1. The food in the dining room was presented well but lacked flavor especially in the meat catagory.

2. Guests are treated to soft serve ice cream several places on the ship but if they want quality ice cream the need to purchase Ben & Jerry's in the mall. All of this is free on other ships.

3. Guests were even ask to pa yextra for some meals from the dining room. This is besides the expected extra charge when eating in a upscale restaurant on board.

4. RC is not good about really pushing washing hand or using hand sanitizer when entering dining room or leaving. Some guests need to be almost forced by having crew there dispensing sanitizer.

My thoughts

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 30, 2014


We always enjoy cruising on the Navigator...especially since it leaves Galveston. My comments:  the service, etc of Diamond Club was great..but space was way too small. No place to  sit withoutgoing outside.  We wanted country western dancing...found dance floors much too small.  With mostly seniors coming outof  Texas and midwest, you  should capitalize on good dancing with country western ....and space to dance.  Missed very much not having a movie room.  Donot care for outside movies..  We thoughtthe entertainment was way below par...maybe talented performers but choice of music, etc was not good.  If we recognize the songs, it is enjoyable; otherwise it is not.  Someone was way off on selection of what pieces to perform.  Band was great. ,,,liked that they stood and seemed to really enjoy being there.  Was good to be able to leave ship on our own on Sunday morning.  Departure was quick and uneventful ...so way very good.  We do NOT like being told to pay $25 per day gratuities per stateroom.  That is ridiculous.  Why don't you pay your employees or just add the gratuties to the price of the cruise as advertised?  When seniors are expecdted to dole out $200 for someone to make up bed or clear away dishes in Windjammer, seems kind of unreasonable.  If you would do something about gratuities, I'd waant to cruise once a quarter, but I spend a while getting over my feelings before I even want to think about going again.  Love Royal Carribean and love leaving Galveston....makes it more afffordable for us.  Always you have great staff.  Just pay them without having us do it.  Make the up front price include that.  Thanks.  Martha Brooks

Wonderful Sailing Experience in Caribbean

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 30, 2014


My husband and I were both quite favorably impressed with Royal Caribbean Cruise lines and with their ship Navigator of the Seas.  Even though the stateroom was small it was quite comfortable for the two of us.  All the service on this voyage was efficient, friendly and very helpful.  The ship itself is gorgeous and well arranged.  There were plenty of activities and fun things to do during the entire cruise.  We especially enjoyed the hot tubs and there were several to choose from.  They were always so clean and a good temperature.  The formal dining room was elegant and the meals were all exceptional.  In fact all the food served on the cruise was very good and there was lots of variety.  We enjoyed our cruise and the ship from start to finish and would love to do it again someday.

Royal caribbean is awesome

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 23, 2014


Even though our ship couldn't leave on time and we missed 2 of our ports, royal caribbean did a very good job. Not only did they give us a full refund, they gave us an extra discount on our next cruise, we still got to go to Mexico for free. I think the ship and cruise line did a great job on making sure we still had a good time and made up for what we lost. I will definently be going on another cruise.

Tips for Navigator of the Seas

Bring a few extension cords. The room had only a few outlets.

Enjoyed an ice cream every day at the make your own ice cream machine.

The late seating worked great for us since it perfectly fit our lifestyle and is exactly what we wanted. But it is late - 9PM start - so we were often there until 11PM closing. Therefore plan to catch the early shows that you are interested in.

Travelers that get sea sick do not book anything at the front of the boat!

Care promenade open 24 hours. Room service fast and easy. Use compass.

Go to the main dining for breakfast if they are open you can order quality food such as eggbenedict and anything you want.Take the early dining time so that you can go to 8.00Pm show usually the shows start on this time.

Take the late dinner setting. Then you're not rushed after being in port. Most of the entertainment has two shows to accomidate both seatings.

We love the Viking Lounge especially when leaving a port. Good panoramic view.

Book the My Time dining option. It gives you more flexibility as to when you want to eat. The only bad thing about it is that you have different servers each evening, so you never really get to know them, or them you.

Try to be seated at a window for dining and if in an outside cabin, on the port side of the ship.

We experienced formal breakfast dining for the first time and would recommend to everyone.

book a room in the center and as high as possible....elevators are on each end. Its a long walk from the front to the back and we were always on the opposite end!!

Don't miss the fine dining experience and if you're lucky your wait staff will be Virgel and Duwainey!

Enjoy breakfast in the dining room - it's so relaxing, no standing in line, and you get to meet lots of new people every day.

The Solarium is a GREAT place for adults to relax. If you have been to one of the ports many times (like us), consider staying on the ship and enjoy the Solarium. On port days, it's fairly deserted, so NO problem getting a prime deck chair!

Just because you're informed that there are &quot;2 formal nights&quot; doesn't mean you have to dress to the nines....wear what you like...many do, it's your vacation, be comfortable, be happy. You might want to bring an all white outfit in case there is a &quot;white party&quot; one evening.

Everything was wonderful - can't think of one thing to complain about.

Windjammer just as good as dining room. But promanade small for bands and dancing.

The buffet offered a better variety. We ate there for breakfast and lunch but some of our group enjoyed the dining experience regardless of the food. If you are without kids, there is a very nice enclosed hot tub and pool area for adults only. The mall is fun to experience but expensive.

The cafe on deck 5 is great fora quick cup of coffee, great sandwiches, pizza, and cookies/pastries. And, they remain open when the buffet and dining room is closed.
