Had a great time on this cruise! MY SECOND ONE ON THE NAVIGATOR OF THE SEAS! The staff is amazing and so friendly and helpful!  We especially enjoyed the trivia contests on board and the evening entertainment. And of course the food was the greatest!

Navigator of the Seas

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Jan 11, 2015

Enjoyed ports of call.  Disappointed in food in main dining room.  Poor quality and not enough variety.    Dining time was a problem, as it was set at 8:00 p.m. too late, changed time to 5:30 which is too early.

good cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Jan 11, 2015

Ship was nice, crew is excellent, ports were interesting. I felt the pool area could have been cleaner, looks in need of updating.  Room was nice but balcony was not clean.  dirt and hair everywhere.

Great first cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Jan 11, 2015

For the money this was a real bargain. I loved the restaurants and the shore excursions were also really great. The best excursion was the one we arranged through the ship. However, the excursion to Fantasy Island in Roatan was a nightmare. Do not go there Island Adventures!

You get what you pay for in cruises

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Jan 11, 2015

* did not provide programs listed in promo materials

* check-in & disembark processes was a nightmare, poorly organized

* shopping on board was limited and extremely expensive

* crowded conditions with 4000 on board plus 1500 boat staff

* food services and selection were surprisingly good

* stateroom staff do not get compensation from company, their only compensation received is from the gratuities paid by those passengers taking the cruise...terrible exploitation for hard working people

* do not be lured in to booking because of special on board promos...everything on board from beverages to special restaurants and custom services is high priced and will quickly consume your on board credits

* beware of communication services provided e.g. wi-fi is VERY SLOW and poor, use of personal cell phones incurs add-on charges and is expensive, TV programs provided in staterooms is poor at best

* information lectures provided by RC is a disappointment and a sales pitch to buy high priced merchandise from Diamonds International

* live music provided on board is loud and not designed for dancing or relaxation

* boat staff are very friendly and work hard to keep ship and staterooms clean and provide pleasant service despite being poorly compensated by company

* Royal Caribbean advertising claims to be the #1 rated cruise line is a misleading and deceptive

Best first cruise!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Jan 11, 2015

This was my first cruise and is was more then I expected it to be. I knew that the service should be great and it was the employees were very nice and attentive and I loved that they tried to get to know you and would call me by name.my room attended was amazing I'm afraid i forget what his name is, but he was awesome. I didn't have to pick up anything. I attended the 5:30 dinner service and the servers were also very attentive and good at keeping up with our tables needs. the food was good and the presentation was great but I would say it was 3 1/2 to 4 star food, but the bread rolls were the best I've had! the ship was very clean I would say only the elevator call buttons were the only thing that looked dirty but that's because every one used the elevators. I loved all of the shows that were put on for us, that was something I didn't know happened on the ship. I do think drinks were over prices I couldn't figure out how they based there prices I would order a Pina Colada that would be $8 and that was somewhat ok since it came in a bigger glass but then I would order a Malibu and coke that only had one shot and come in a small glass and that would also be $8. and I thought about getting the drink package but for the days that I had an excursion I just didn't find it very worth it. this was my first cruise and I am happy with the service and overall trip.

Almost perfect

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Jan 11, 2015

What can i say, i liked most of it, very much.

But ....

The ship is smokefree apart from designated area's, BUT, when you go on the promenade, where a lot of things are to be enjoyed, you smell cigarette smoke...Sure it is a BIG open space, but for a non-smoker, not so nice.

People smoke in the Casino, which is fine by me, but why is ther no door to keep the smoke out of the rest of the ship?

Fantastic

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Jan 11, 2015

The entertainment, food, rooms, decorations, was very nice.  Highly recommend, I  mostly cruised another cruise line (which was my No. 1 choice until I cruised the Navigator). I will choose Royal Caribeean next time.

 I was not pleased with how the luggage claim area was handled.  It seemed forever before we could find our luggage and then had to wait in a long line to get off the ship.

I was very pleased with the room, very spacious. The room service was excellent.  Our servers at the dining room could not have been better.  Andy and Dean (servers) were quick and very anxious to please us with food, service, etc.

Overall very enjoyable cruise. The ship was very clean and gorgeous. This was my first cruise, and the expectations were met. Amenities include a small ice rink, rock climbing wall, sports court, and the flowrider (small surfing area on deck). I was surprised at the amount of elderly people on our cruise and the activities are mostly geared towards them, but there were a couple of teen only or children's activities. The shore excursions were amazing, and I highly recommend going on at least 2/3 days. Definitely bring your swim suit, a waterproof camera, and a light backpack or satchel to go on adventures with!

Great Experience

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Jan 04, 2015

The ship was beautiful, and the staff were the absolute best ever.  The food was great in the main dining room with excellent service.  Great shows at night, and pretty decent activities during the day.  The shore excursions were excellent and the process of getting on and off the ship were good, did not have to wait long and was not a big hassle.  Overall a wonderful experience I would so recommend to anyone.

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.

You will need to bring multi-plugs or extension cords. I also travel with a small fan since I am used to ceiling fans. I kept getting turned around so an in-room ship map would be helpful! Pre-plan your on-shore excursions and book early. The best sold out early!
