Great cruise.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 15, 2015

Everything on the cruise was great. The cruise staff was friendly and helpful. Really enjoyed the Cosmopolitan bar and Willy the bartender. The excursions were excellent. The only thing we will do different is not go during spring break.

Great and fun experience

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 08, 2015

We are a family of 4 with 2 boys ages 10 and 13. We had a blast during spring break on the Navigator of the seas. The activities on the ship were great for our boys since they like competitions, tournaments and games. The ports (Roatan, Belize and Cozumel) were beautiful. The service and staff was great too. Even though the buffet for breakfast and lunch was ok, the food at dinner was delicious, especially the desserts. They had plenty of activities on the ship for families, adults and kids. We highly recommend this cruise.

Good cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 08, 2015

I went with my 18 yr old daughter and her 17 yr old friend for their senior spring break trip. This was our 3rd time to cruise but 1st time for 7 days.  Days at sea were a little long and boring.  Would have been nice to have some movie channels in the room to occupy some down time. Especially on rainy days.

At night, they girls like to sit in the deli playing cards and people-watching.  they were quite embarrassed to be 'carded' and send to the room because of one 17 yr old. I think the age break should be reevaluated.

On Carnival they had free sushi and we were looking forward to something similar but was disappointed that it was only available through the specialty restaurant at an additional cost.

The ice skating show was amazing but thought the song and dance productions were weak. Coming from the dance world we were disappointed in the choreography for the stage shows. Singing may have been a result of bad monitors on stage.

It's been a while, so my memory may be faulty, but seems like Carnival had better late night food variety.  And wish there were chips to go with those deli sandwiches!  :)

REVIEW OF OUR CRUISE ON NAVIGATOR OF THE SEAS

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 08, 2015

IT IS A BEAUTIFUL SHIP. I WAS SURPRIZED THAT THE FOOD WASN'T BETTER.  TO GET A NICE STEAK AT THE MAIN DINING, YOU HAVE TO PAY MORE-AT THE MAIN DINING, YOU COULD ONLY GET A BREAKFAST STEAK. WE HAD ALWAYS SAILED ON CARNIVAL OR NCL AND THE FOOD WAS MUCH BETTER.  WE STARTED CRUISING IN THE 80'S AND THE SERVICE, THE FOOD AND ENTERTAINMENT WAS MUCH BETTER.  IT SEEMS NOW THAT THE ALMIGHTY DOLLAR IS MUCH MORE IMPORTANT THAN GIVING PEOPLE A GREAT VALUE FOR THE MONEY.  MY HUSBAND BOUGHT A PICTURE AND A CD OF PICTURES TAKEN AND WHEN HE GOT HOME COULD NOT SEE THE PICTURES WITHOUT PAYING MORE MONEY.  OUR ROOM STEWARD, ANTHONY DE GUZMAN WAS WONDERFUL AND I WOULD LIKE TO GIVE OUT A SHOUT OUT OF PRAISE FOR LEA PING IN THE CASINO.  SHE WAS FABULOUS AND VERY ATTENTIVE TO MY NEEDS. OUR WAITERS IN THE DINING ROOM WERE VERY GOOD BUT SEEMED HARRIED AT TIMES WTH TOO MANY TABLES TO TAKE CARE OF.  REALLY ENJOYED THE ICE SHOW-WORTH SEEING.  DID ENJOY THE COMEDIANS AND MOTOWN GIRLS. NOT PLEASED WITH THE OPENING LAS VEGAS SHOW.  LOVE AND MARRIAGE GAME SHOW WAS FUN..  WE HAVE BEEN ON 17 CRUISES AND MY HUSBAND SAID IT WILL BE THE LAST- HOWEVER,I PROBABLY WOULD GO ON ANOTHER BUT, ON A SMALLER SHIP..BIGGER ISN'T ALWAYS BETTER!!!

Beds make it, or break it. Food too!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Mar 01, 2015

This was a great cruise, our second on the Navigator 6 months. Entertainment was excellent and completely different than the cruise a few months before. Dining, well, at least consider you are on a ship, in five miles deep water!  A few more varieties in the buffet would be nice.  Over all , the ship and its crew were levery friendly and would do or get what you need in first order, always with a smile.

I would highly rec. this cruise to anyone.  It would be an excellent "first cruise" too!

Good Time

This was our first cruise so I don't have anything to compare it to but we had a wonderful time. I gained 5 lbs and have nothing but praise for the food and crew. Just a fantastic 7 days.

Cruise from Galvaston

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Feb 22, 2015

First, like I usually do, I book a motel a day before the cruise (just to insure no timing problems). So I booked this cruise from Galveston and then a motel there.  Then air from San Diego to Houston, and thinking I would just rent a car at the airport and drop it off on the island, go on the cruise and rend another car when we returned and visit my cousin in Katy then fly home.  Problem:

  You can not just rent a car at the airport and drop it off at the port.  The only car rental on the island is Enterprise and they don't accept other car companies cars.  So, the choice is take a taxi for a lot of money to the port.  Same back as Enterprise charges $200 a day if you try to drop a car off from the island.  So, what to do?  I looked at the web, to find a lot of people had/have the same issue.  The fact that .Royal Caribbean had a shuttle for the cruises.  No Royal C people told me about this.  So, I cancel the island motel, book one by the airport and am going to use the ship shuttle.  I call and find I can not buy a ticket over the phone/web. one has to just to appear on Sunday morning and buy a spot on the bus to the port.  So, we show up on Sunday morning (there is no one there except Sunday) and buy our tickets, I try to buy a return ticket, but you can not.  You have to buy it on the ship.  So late in the cruise I try to book the return shuttle, but NO, I had to do it a day before I tried to book them.  Was told I had to do it a day earlier!!  I was ticked, told the clerk that this was most likely the first and last Royal Caribbean cruise.  So, luckily our dinner mates found out and we returned back to the airport with them, rented a car there to do some Texas visiting.  We were also billed for a higher beverage package than I had purchased, glad I caught it, they had to cancel it and reduce the charges.

  Food was the worse I have had on some 10 cruised.  The lobster night was a 1/4 pound thing that was cut in half and was almost impossible to get the meat out of.  I had to use two knives, our dinner mates had to have the servers remove their lobster meat. 

 Looking at the prices for the Wi-Fi is not worth it. 

I was not impressed with this cruise/line

Service was excellent!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Navigator of the Seas | Sail Date: Feb 15, 2015

We went on the cruise to get away from the worries of daily life, phone calls, emails, etc.  The staff on the ship did an excellent job not only serving us, but always with a smile and kind word.  I love traveling with Royal Carribean Cruise lines!

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.

Take pictures of every silly thing on the first few days, and likely some of those pictures will be ones you need for the scavenger hunt (you only have 15 minutes to get 18 pictures so clearly they expect you to pull from previous shots). Room service was poor- ok if you like getting surprised!
