Navigator of the Seas survey

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

My wife fell and fracture her arm and shoulder before we even pulled into San Juan. She was treated with only a couple days pain pills and a sling. She spent the whole trip in her room. No one from the cruise ship called or visited to see how she was doing or if there was anything they could do to help her. The only person who helped and showed concern was the stateroom person. He provided ice all the time day and night for her srm and shoulder and gave her an extra pillow and blanket for her to use (she slept -when she could- sitting on the couch with her legs and feet resting on a chair.  In the room I was in with my cousin (my wife shared a room with our niece) we were directly over a pub and the noise and music was very loud until about 1:00 AM.  We were also told we would get first off with thew help of a wheelchair, none of this happened. Their was a blonde (english) who was at the exit lounge were we were told to meet for departinng and we explained what was told to us, she was extremely RUDE and obnoxious. She kept telling us it was not her fault my wife fell. This whole trip was a nightmare.

Fantastic fun filled cruise!

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

We brought 4 other family members and had an amazing time.  The virtual balcony interior room on Navigator of the Seas was exceptional. I loved hearing the ocean at night as I drifted off to sleep.  Seeing the ports and the ocean was pretty cool too. There was so much storage in our room that we had empty drawers, even though we over packed. The food was delicious and plentiful. Our dining room wait staff did an excellent job. I was so pleasantly surprised with the entertainment. It was such fun and so varied that there was something for everyone.  The islands we visited were breathtakingly beautiful.  We took the plantation and beach tour on St. Kitts through Royal. It was very well organized and we really enjoyed it.  The rum punch at the end was worth every penny! We loved San Juan and want to return for a longer visit. St. Martin was amazing too. We booked a private tour for 6 through Bernard's Tours and Juliette showed us the island. She's the best!  Stop at Sarafina's pasteries on the French side. You will not regret it.  This cruise exceeded my expectations in every way.Love

Honeymoon/bday cruise

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

At first, I was upset because I requested a table for 2 for dinner at booking, was told i would get it, ended in a table with 4 other people. On the 4th night, headwaiter gave us a new table. I also told the agent that im crusing due to our honeymoon and my birthday, i didnt even get a card in the room to show that the request was recognized. Beside that, the trip was ok. The ship was a little older than what I'm used to. But overall, great trip. Friendly staff

Pros: awesome entertainment and shows...

Cons: got tired of the food. Buffet cafe had a lot of food and same food everyday except taco and nachos night.

First cruise, right choice

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

Navigator of the Seas is a beautiful ship, clean and well maintained. The crew, from cabin attendant to dining room staff to bartenders were friendly and eager to please. Food excellent in the main dining room and certainly adequate and plentiful in Windjammer Café. I couldn't believe the variety and quality of evening entertainment in the theatre and ice rink (included in the cruise package, so no surcharge). I didn't do any of the adventure stuff like FlowRyder or Rock Wall, but the folks who were doing it seemed to be having a blast. Excursions at San Juan, St. Kitts and St. Maarten gave a taste of those destinations and went like clockwork. I found Royal Caribbean to be very professional, well organized and supportive, and just the right balance between dignified and casual. It is certainly family-friendly. For a first-timer, I found the website www.royalcaribbeanblog.com to be very helpful in providing independent information and answering questions.

What a wonderful vacation!

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

The Navigator of the Seas is a beautiful ship, very easy to get around.  Many pools and hot tubs to choose from.  The huge hot tub in the spa is the best.  Great space size for the entertainment.  Be sure to get the complimentary tickets onboard for the ice dance show and get there early less space than the other entertainment.  This was an excellent itinerary.   There's a complimentary trolley in San Juan by the port that takes you to all the forts - makes the rounds every 20 minutes.  Highly recommend the Rain Forest excursion in St. Kitts - tours the island and goes to the botanical garden and ends with a great hike in the rain forest.  Highly recommend the Ultimate Beach and Snorkel Speed Boat tour in St. Maarten.

Great ship! great itinerary!

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

It was a great ship with lots to do! Loved the ports we went to. Food was good.

Only negative we could've used a new mattress. My husbands side was so dented down in the middle. Don't know how he did it , my back would've ached.

Happy

Navigator of the Seas review

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

The ship was great as were the staff.  My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the shows.  Our room was nice but the shower in the bathroom could have been bigger.  The food was okay; we didn't starve, that's for sure.  The islands we stopped at were nice but I could have done without the aggressive behavior of people trying to sell us services or merchandise.  We would definitely go back on this ship again.

Navigator of the Seas Eastern Carribean

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

The ship was very clean.  The wait staff was excellent.  The Windjammer Buffet food was repetitious, every day the same items were offered. On other cruise lines, different cuisines were offered on a daily basis.  The nightly entertainment was enjoyable, but other than that, very little was offered during sea days.

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

It was a beautiful ship and clean the entire trip.Staff was friendly. It did not feel like 3000 people were aboard. Did not have to wait long for anything. The dining room staff and the food was excellent.

so so entertainment

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

we have sailed on princess, carnival ,but mostly on  royal Caribbean.

my parents were celebrating their 60 wedding anniversary. the food and service was great. the entertainment was fair . we loved the  illusion show, beetles , piano man, but the regular navigator of the seas entertainment dancers and singers were below my expectations. they were a step down compared to other royal Caribbean shows.

if you have the money go to a better class of ship.

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.
