Good Cruise but some things need to be updated.

The ship and our cabin was excellent. Our room was spacious, updated and beautiful. The best we've had so far. Everything else such as the food, customer service and on board activities were mediocre. That can be improved. The shopping on board was great. The embarkation can be improved for suite guests and disembarkation was unorganized with the bags.

      819/5000   I have to say that the cruise exceeded my expectations. The amount of things to do, the amount of activities places and things to see there was no time for boredom. The attention of the staff of rooms 9671 and 9677, Mus and Mek as we say. And the super care at the Sapphire 3 restaurant by Nikhil and Carlos at table 336 made our stay fabulous. The only point I would put to improve is the price of the internet very expensive and the additional services that in the majority do not take because the prices were very high. Additional that I was charged for tips 13 dollars for each we were 5 in total for each night were 65 for 5 around about $ 400 which I saw excessive. But overall sip the cruise was fabulous and would recommend it extensively to my friends and family.

Happy

This was my second time on the Navigator of the Seas.  It did not disappoint.  A great ship, with so much to do.  The only thing I would change,  we did a tour of the kitchen galley.  It would've been better if the groups were smaller.  At times it was hard to hear the presenter, especially since there were so many toddlers brought on this tour who were talking, crying etc. (not sure why parents would do this). The brunch served after the tour was fabulous.  So I would recommend that parents find tours that are age appropriate for your

kids.

treated like you were the only one on the ship, all the different things to go and do, it was the best vacation that my husband and i have been on.Happy

 

the only thing that was a little confusing was getting off the ship at the end 

of the cruise. no directions from crew members to tell you if you were in the right lines and other rude people just cutting in line to get off the ship.

We booked a Owner's Suite. The room was very comfortable.  We spent a lot of time in the room playing cards, watching movies, and enjoying the balcony. The room location was 1314 which was close to the elevator, but not the noise of the elevators. We were one floor up from the Concierge Lounge and one floor down from dining. All of the staff was very attentive. The room sleeps 4 but, the bedding is arranged more for couples.  We were able to adjust the couches as two beds.  The bedroom bed was not two twins, so we still needed a single bed added, the Room Steward brought in a roll away cot. The cot was old and sagging.  We were advised to notify the staff that we needed 4 beds one a week prior to the sailing in insure we had a better selection.

Unclear on benefits and toilet leaking into our room due to plumbing issue

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We bought the drink package. We were unclear were to go for some of the benefits provided. Still couldn't tell you were to get freshly squeezed juice.

 

Also on the 3rd night we noticed the door way was wet. We originally thought this was caused by our water shoes. Until it began to stink... I laid a few towels down to soak up the "water". When I pulled the towels up later on I notices they were yellow.... Barf! Completely unacceptable!

Have never done a 5 day & will not do it again. It is perfect for 1st time cruisers and families--we are neither. We also found that this class ship isn't our favorite--we love the Oasis as well as the Grandeur so it has nothing to do with size--has to do with lay-out. As with all RCL the staff is fantastic

Best part of this cruise was being on the Royal Caribbean Cruise Line's 'Navigator of the Seas' ship.

We very much enjoyed the location of our balcony stateroom even though the balcony was somewhat smaller than usual.  Especially pleasing was the quality and and choice of food at the Windjammer Buffet restaurant.  

A couple of minor recommendations would be as follows ....

#1 ...  All elevators have a poorly designed background to the floor level numbers.  Several cruisers getting onto the elevator made the same comment as they strained to find the floor level # marking on the panel.

#2 ...  The service and food were terrific all week in the main 'Sapphire Dining Room' and no fault of the waiters and serving staff but the average time it took for dinners to be served from start to finish was 2 x hours which is somewhat too long - either need more 'Chefs' or need to revise and improve the flow of service as our 2 waiters were handling several tables at once but yet they were excellent, very friendly and helpful.  

Another recommendation was that there was a 'Latin Music' band playing nightly at the 'Bolerao' who were absolutely 'off key' as to their singing to the point that it was very apparent and somewhat annoying - Not sure how RCI approved them to play on this ship.  On the other hand, the musicians for the main shows were absolutely 'outstanding' and we only wished that we could of heard them as a group together play in one of the lounges maybe 2 or 3 nights of the cruise - Phenomenal musicians.  We were not impressed at all with the Australian singer but other shows were terrific in the Metropolis Theater.  The 'Solarium' is a great spot to lounge, sunbathe, read a book as opposed to the main pool were the entertainment/musicians were too loud and semmed to play every song with the same beat and sang unknown songs.  After 10 minutes listening to them, I moved away to the Solarium to find more 'quiet time' and relaxation.

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
