great entertainment.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Dec 07, 2014

Ice dance show was great along the with the arobatics show.  The ship itself is beautiful and more so with the Christmas decorations.  I have mainly sailed Princess and they both have their strong points and each has their weak points. I preferred the food on Princess and I liked the entertainment better on Royal.  I liked the electronics interaction that Royal has through out the ship

Wonderful cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Dec 07, 2014

My husband and I enjoyed our cruise very much. Food and entertainment were

very good. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. We had a Junior Suite that

was nice. The shopping mall in the middle of the ship was awesome. Enjoyed the

three ports of call. Would recommend this cruise very much.

Excellent service and food

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

I have cruised  on this ship before and enjoyed it more then.  A few things were missing -- tea and scones, 2 Las Vegas type shows (only had one). The airport to ship shuttle was disorganized.  Long waits for the elevators. There were 3 comedians in a row on the stage at night ???The parts of the cruise that I loved were the superb ice show, truly outstanding service from the crew throughout the ship and the wonderful variety of food in the Main Dining Room.  My room steward was very attentive and helpful.  The waiters in the Windjammer Buffet were always on top of things. It was a quiet cruise which was just what I wanted.

Service Outstanding, Royal Caribbean and food.. not so much.

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

The service of the staff was absolutely outstanding.  I had no complaints.. well one person was a little eh, but she didn't get extra tip and I'll leave it at that.  The way that RCI does their billing is horrible.  I was led to believe since I booked through a travel agent that I was receiving an onboard credit from RCI and the travel agent and they "stated" that was not the case.  Also the onboard credit amount is misleading because the price they put on the web sites includes port charges which are NOT included in the calculation of the onboard credit.  and the whole 50% off the second person is not true, they just add it to the total of the first person.  The food is meh.... it seems and I heard this from other sources, that the cruise lines (RCI included) are moving to the passenger pay service for their more upscale lines and it seems that they are reducing the quality of the food that you pay for when you pay for your cruise.  The food we had previously on RCI was phenomenal.   So all in all, if you want all inclusive, stick with a resort, you'll get more bang for your buck, alcohol, food and gratuities wise (yeah they don't usually add on extra for gratuities at all inclusive resorts).

Such a beautiful ship with great crew and food.   What more is there for a wonderful,satisfying cruise?  All aspects from boarding to disembarking went smoothly and should be industry level requirements for all cruise lines.This was not our first RCL cruise and will not be our last.  We can be a tad critical but this cruise left us very pleased.  Navigator was tops.

Second seating disappointment.

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

Ship was beautiful.  Ports were exciting.  Service was wonderful.  My only disappointment is that I had second seating and there were several events planned during my dinner time and I was not able to attend.  Felt like first seating cruisers were given preferential treatment.  I had never experienced this n all of my cruises.

Navigator of the Seas excellent cruise

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

A beautiful ship with an extremely efficient and friendly staff!!

Really don't know what else to say...it was an exceptional experience.  The ship is remarkable.  The onboard shopping is great.  If a casino is your "thing", there is an excellent on here.

Navigator of the Seas

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

Loved the special invatation to the ice show with glass of wine.

Loved the welcome back party.

Loved the shows at night and the food in the dinning room.

Very disappointed in the increase of drink prices  and how they now measure one shotper drink, only CNN International and Headline News for news.  No FOX or Business news stations.

Very disappointed in the Port at Roatan.  It sucked.  We have been to the other Port on Princess.

I thought we had some on board credit from you but we only received $100 from a deposit from RCCI

Royal Caribbean Navigator of the Seas

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

I never received anything from Royal Caribbean regarding on-board rules.  I did not take any long pants so I was not allowed to eat in the dining room except for the first night when they told me I couldn't come back.  And having to eat at 8 pm every night was not acceptable anyway. 

I also did not know there would be TWO formal nights and didn't take formal wear. 

The Sabor restaurant was right above my stateroom and between 10 pm and 1 am every night would stomp around, roll some type of wheeled vehicle, and slam refrigerator case doors.  All of this was so loud that I could not sleep.  I complained to guest services twice to no avail.

After the windjammer closed, the availability of food and drink was the worst of any cruise I have ever been on.

The entertainment was mediocre.  I mean, Gary Mule Deer!!  Come on!!  He has been out of style for 20 years at least!!  The magician was average and actually did very little magic.  The singers and dancers were a little above average and the ice skaters were good.

Overall, it was the worst cruise I have been on, out of 7.

Pinman
Purser

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.

Roos
Second Mate

I would suggest trying the stand up surfing. I had never done it and that made for a few hours of fun on the trip. The lines can get long so try to go the first day before people start to line up. Dining room lunch was the best meal so I would suggest trying that.
