Western Caribbean Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date:

Excellent trip!  I was so nervous it being my first cruise but now...I'm wondering what took me so long to do this.  I absolutely loved the staff on board, they catered to our every need..the ship was beyond beautiful.  I will definitely cruise Royal Caribbean again.

very dissappointed

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date:

It's our first time with Royal Caribbean.  The stateroom bathroom was horrible with old stain in the vanity sink and toilet bowl.  Coffee mugs were stained and smelled.  Windjammer closed at 9 pm.  Ice cream was melted.  The staffs were not friendly.  I've been with Carnival and Norwegian before and was very pleased.  I was told that Royal Caribbean is a bit higher than the others but wasn't.  Our group vowed not to go to Royal Caribbean anymore.  Disembarkment was unorganized.  We've been with for all of our cruises, but this last time wasn't pleasant either.  We were assigned seat for the dining with other family instead of ours.

Good Cruise, Family Fun and Will Likely Choose Royal Caribbean Again

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date:

Overall, this was a good cruise with great food and service aboard a beautiful ship. The only criticism I have is the entertainment which I felt there should be more shows, e.g. dancing or theater production. Aside from that, this was a pleasant experience and I will likely recommend this cruise.

Highly satisfied

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date:

I went on the Royal Carribean's, Navigator of the Seas. The ship was huge comparing to the other Carnival ships trailing behind us. Everyday was a new activity for the family. I knew i could trust the staff because if their friendly appearences and lively personalities. My kids had a great time when in the ship's arcade or when doing the excursions outside of the ship. I was very satisfied with my stay and i will deffinetly be returning and bringing more family members along with me.

Review Of Trip

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date:

I was quite disappointed with the quality of this cruise.  The food in the formal dining room was on several occasions tolerable at best.  There were only two nights that our group could honestly say we enjoyed our dinners.  The Wind Jammer was better as a whole.  Grace, our server during the trip, was however and exceptional find.  Angella who maintained our room was wonderful, her service excellent unlike many of the customer service people on this cruise.

We went to Bingo to find both the man in charge and the female caller to be rude and arrogant to the customers.

This was my fifth cruise but my first with Royal Caribbean.  I was initially excited but will probably not book with you line again.

Navigator of the Seas

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date:

It was a nice boat and a good cruise.  The staff and the food were the highlights of the trip and i would recommend this cruise to other people.

I had two issues with the first being the lack of time in each port - hard to enjoy/complete the excursions without rushing.

The second was the smoking section on the ship could be moved to a better location so that everyone doesn't have to participate in the smoking and the casino was like walking into a fog so not usable except early in the day.

Not really a family ship, on ship communication expensive

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date:

The Teen programs were somewhat limited. Although our older teen liked it, it was more of a function of hanging out with other teens than actually "doing stuff". Similar with our other younger teen, but she liked it less.

On the other hand, the Toddler program was terrible.  The 3-5 year old program had some strange restrictions / limitations:  the children couldn't bring in food or drink, the children must be able to use the toilet 100% themselves (no help whatsoever), there was no kiddie pool, and the ratio was something like15 to 1. We basically couldn't leave our 3 year old for more than 1 hour!

On the on communication requires you to buy an expensive per phone internet data plan and / or "Roam" with your carrier (very expensive).  Other ships have cordless phones or inexpensive apps that can be used.   This should be addressed.

Great time

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date:

We had a great time on the cruise. Self serve yogurt is the best ever. We has fantastic waiters that spoiled us every night. We did the My Time dining and it worked well. In Cancun we went to Playa Mia and it was ok.  Probably wouldn't go back.  Didn't like buffet lunch at all.  Beach massage was awesome though.  In Belize we took the river cruise to the ancient ruins - great trip. In Routan we zip lined  didn't do the extreme because I'm afraid of heights but after I know I could have handled it.

Nice and Romantic

This being our first cruise was kind of nervous because of all the unknowns.  But I can say it was on of the most relaxing / entertaining things I done so far. We are already planing for the next one.

Wonderful experience all around

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date:

This was an amazing experience and a great way to travel for our family reunion (17 people.)  There was something to do for all ages and the ship was 5 star between the gorgeous dining room, Promenade, FloRider, spa, etc.  The activities were very fun and frequent and the ports of call were fantastic.  We can't wait to cruise again.

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.
