The staff was great but the Main Dinning Food was just OK. No filet or lobster unless you pay extra. Even a burger at Johnny Rockets was extra.  Felt like they did nickle and dime you all week.

Good stops, and ease of boarding and departure.  We have been on the sister ship and liked that ship.  Dining room service was excellent.  Entertainment was average.

Great Cruise Experiance

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 14, 2015

The Service was excellent. The Crew was great and wait Staff Exceeded my Expectations. The only negative thing was the Photo Department. We were sold a CD by a Staff member and was told to pick it up next day. We went twice that day and was told by 9:30pm next day. When we went to pick up was told there was no such thing as CD and they would be emailed. The Lady staff member told me everyone knew there would be no CD with Pictures on it.Making me feel stupid! She was very unprofessional and they need an Adult in Charge of that Department who can answer questions correctly.Other than that it was a wonderful experience.

Beautiful Ship, Fun Cruise, Expensive Wi-Fi

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 14, 2015

We had a great time on the Navigator despite bad weather out of Galveston and a shortened stay in Cozumel. Also make sure you grab a tender ticket early for the boat ride to shore in the Caymans. We got there late and did not get off the ship until after noon, shortening that shore excursion to about 3 1/2 hours. Food was very good. We ate at the main dining room every night. Service was excellent also. Don't buy Cuban cigars, immigration will confiscate. Then their is the Wi-Fi charge (without it no phone service), $40/day, ridiculous!

overpriced, over crowded EXPENSIVE

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: May 31, 2015

Not what expected. The money that goes into it is definitely not worth it. Almost all activities on board have to paid for and they aren't affordable. What few shops they do have are highly overpriced and have no variety. The food is disgusting. I didn't have a single decent cup of coffee while on that boat. Also be aware that an outrageous gratuity percentage is slapped onto everything! 18% is outrageous not to mention that is in addition to the mandatory 12.50 per person per day!

Cozumel, Belize, Roatan, OH MY!!!!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: May 24, 2015

Due to tornado warnings our plane was not able to leave for Houston. We finally arrived to LONG lines to board the ship.  We didn't get on the ship in Galveston until 4:00 pm and the ship left at 4:30.  The boarding process was not smooth at all, but again I know it was all due to the weather.  It made for a very long travel day. 

No one greeted us upon stepping onto the ship and we had to wander around to figure out where to go to find our rooms. Even with that bad start to our trip, we had a GREAT time.

The food was good...not great all the time.  Sometimes it was stellar!  In a nutshell, it was inconsistent.  We still had fun! We did the ultimate drink package.  If you are a drinker, I would highly recommend purchasing a drink package.  You will save SOOOO much money. 

Back to the dining, I did not like the 'Dine anytime' way of eating dinner.  I would have preferred the same table group every night.  We made our own dining group by the 3rd day by being invited by another group of people we met.  They had a set time, set table, and the same wait staff every evening and we were fortunate enough to sit with them.  We prefer the wait staff getting to know us and taking such great care of us.  We also enjoyed getting to know them and the camaraderie. 

The excursions were amazing...

Beach Break in Cozumel

Dark Night Tubing in Belize

and our FAV...the Tabyana Beach break in Roatan!

We didn't want to leave to come home!  The number of days at sea were great...so much to do on the ship or simply relaxing by the pool.

western carribbean cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: May 24, 2015

It was absolutely fabulous.  My only problem was trying to watch TV in bed.  I got a crick in my neck turning sideways to watch it and also trying to look over my husband's head to see it.  Did not have that problem last year.  The crew and staff were absolutely fabulous.   Already booked for Eastern Caribbean Cruise May 2016  Lori Girard was great in getting this booking for us.

Great family fun cruise!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: May 24, 2015

Our family had a terrific time on this cruise. There are many things to explore, shows were mostly good, ice rink and flowrider were entertaining.  The weather was terrific! This is the smoothest sailing experience yet, no sea-sickness, at all!  We would certainly do this cruise again and recommend these ports to others! The people encountered were friendly and helpful, at all the ports. We felt safe both on and off the boat! This is an experience everyone should enjoy!

Overview of our experience - Navigator of the Sea - Belize, Cozemel, and Roatan

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: May 24, 2015

1.  Dining room staff was fabulous - Eglin and Carl were kind courteous and efficient.  Made dining comfortable and enjoyable. 

2.  Edwardo was an excellent cabin steward.  He made sure he took care of issues (toilet issues on our floor) quickly as well as arranged for the pressing of several of our garments.

3.  Excursions were run efficiently and safely and were beautiful.  Snorkling was fabulous.

4.  Shows were entertaining and appropriate. 

5.  Bar tenders were knowledgeable and prepared.

6.  Please make sure that there is enough Starbucks Chi Tea onboard.  They ran out and several guests including me were disappointed as we had purchased the drink card that allowed us to have specialty drinks.

7.  Sometimes the food was a bit cold and I would bet did not temp correctly.

8.  The specialty restaurants were great with the Sabor and the Italian Restaurant rating the highest with our foursome.  Service was always fantastic.

9.  Information desk staff were courteous and knowledgeable.

We booked our next cruise on the Navigator next year!  Thank you for a great trip.

I lost a diamond necklace on the next to last night and the cleaning service people found it and turned it in that says something for the honesty of the ships staff

Take advantage of the free on-board activities such as trivia, the quest, and late night comedy.

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