Great times and wonderful memories!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 12, 2015

I have traveled on Royal cruises before,  and once again, the ship is beautiful. I traveled with 11 family members and they all loved the experience. I do feel like the food and entertainment was not up to par from other cruises I have been on. If you're looking for a cruise that's not focused on "partying" then Royal is the way to go. One thing we said was when the band wasn't playing on the deck, they should have music playing out by the pools. They do have areas that are more quiet and relaxing where the music wouldn't bother anyone. The staff were great! My husband and I booked our next cruise already on the Allure!

Everything was great - well worth the money. The shows were top notch. The food was excellent and the service was above and beyond, My wife and I would definitely do this again.

Three sisters

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 12, 2015

My 3 sisters took this cruise because we had not done anything together ever ,we were raised like two families I was too young when they married so we thought this would be great since we were all getting up in years .

On the 1st night my porter had pulled down a bunk bed from the ceiling and I tried to sleep up high but could not do so at 5:30 am I went to customer service and told them I'll sleep on the floor before I sleep 7 nights in that bunk they told me they had a private room for me and moved me to it at once it was so much better since I didn't expect that kind of service a sofa bed is what I thought I would be getting but no they went above and beyond  .Big Smile

Nice cruise,but no better than Carnival.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 12, 2015

Stage entertainment was great! Loved Elton John tribute. Need more comedians at a reasonable hour, perhaps in their smaller venue.Promenade was very nice. Food was average. Prefer the custom omelets and pizza on Carnival. "Cafeteria"( Carnival disperses eating areas.) was crowded. Loved "indoor" hot tubs. Large front deck area could have been designated for adults, with amenities, like Carnival Majic.. Ice rink very nice feature. Bring something warm..Flowrider was cool, and rock wall for younger people is nice. Wish golf area was lit at night, Would be nice to golf in the evening. Minor problems were addressed quickly. Excellent service.Plenty of hot tubs.

Poor maintenance response

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 12, 2015

I was assigned to a cabin where the bathroom toilet was not operating correctly.  Some time the toilet did not flash, or there was no water, and others it overflow into the floor.  Each time maintenance fix it they did not clean it nor the floor.  i was moved to a different cabin and the issue with the toilet continued, I complained but did not asked for a different room as i expected they all were having issues in other rooms

The other bad experience I had in the cabin was the television, in both cabin was the same.  The TV remote did not operate properly, when the TV was off for extended period of time the remote did not turned the TV on.  At night when I was in bed and tried to turn it off, it did not work, I had to get up and turn it off from the back of the TV.  Maintenance and other personnel tried to fix the problem but never got solved.  This happened on both cabins I was in.  In addition, the guests at my dinner table had the same problem.

I had appointments that were not respected.  There were other issues which I reported and I also provided the solution like how to do the cleaning of the dining room table and chairs, placing limonite or flavor water of some sort by the 24-hor café, however they did not take action to have water by the pool, this was uncomfortable as the dining room with liquids at times it was closed

Great Crew and Ship

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 12, 2015

Great Crew, and great ship. The food was good and so was the entertainment options. The cons are the ports in Cozumel (RCL need to upgrade their pier) and Galveston's terminal 2 ( I have been in nice bus terminals). The cruise was an awesome experience, and look forward to doing the same itinerary next year, but different ship.

RCL has more mature atmosphere on their ships, not the house party atmosphere Carnival has. Its a personal preference between the two.

RCL's Navigator of the Seas; a worthwhile cruising vacation

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 05, 2015

The ship is beautiful, the size perfect; you can walk easily from one end to the other without being exhausted. All of the staff provided exemplary service. Food in the Sapphire Dining Room was always delicious. The buffet in Windjammer Cafe was good, but could have been a bit more varied in selections. We did not partake of any of the specialty restaurants. Entertainment was high quality. There were many different activities available. There was an outbreak of Noro Virus on board, but it was quickly contained and dealt with efficiently.

There were a couple of negatives. Boarding took too long, and disembarkation was a disaster. We will avoid the Galveston port for future cruises. It's too small to handle three thousand six hundred people getting off at the same time. We would also avoid going Easter week or spring break. Eleven hundred children were on board. Unruly children, obnoxious teenagers, and oblivious parents were tough to deal with and, at times, were a wet blanket on everyone's fun. 

Our favorite cruise line is Celebrity. RCL came close, but the negatives above leaves them in second place for us. This was my ninth cruise and here is how I would rate them: Celebrity #1, RCL #2, Carnival #3, Norwegian #4, Princess 0 ( never to go on again)

Great ship! Port of Galveston is Horrible!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Apr 05, 2015

The Navigator of the Sea is awesome and the places we visited were great!  Just remember the shore excursion are cheaper if you book them yourself.  I would love to go on this ship again but probably won't because of the Port of Galveston it took us with U.S. passports 3 hrs to go through the line.  Made my whole outlook on the trip bad!

Great Food, ports are ok

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 29, 2015

The food was great in the dining room and our balcony room was a nice size.  Grand Cayman has a beautiful beach but we could skip Jamaica.  Cozumel is good for shopping.  Overall a relaxing cruise and nice spring getaway.

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.
