6 Night Western Caribbean Cruise

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

The overall cruise was okay, I have had better.  The entertainment and main dinning hall could have and should have been better.  I had to contact customer support several times prior to the cruise for ?? or unable to print documents that I need from the Royal Caribbean website.  The information given to me by customer support was incorrect and did not appreciate the wrong information or being lied too when I found out when I got on the cruise.  Stopping at Labadee, Haiti was the highlight of the cruise.  I will give Royal and great big 10 for what they did here and this is a must see stop.  You cannot take this through the other cruise companies because is Royal's private island stop for 1 ship.  After 9 cruises, Labadee is the best stop we have ever been on by far.  Royal needs to pick up there game or the will be left behind by Carnival because I was actually having a hard time finding fun stuff to do on the cruise.  Yummy

Absolutely Wonderful!

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

This was my 5th cruise with Royal Caribbean and, as in the past, I was not disappointed.  The ship, Navigator of the Seas, was beautiful and extremely well-maintained. Our stateroom was fantastic...we had a balcony and the room was so much larger than an inside stateroom with plenty of room to spread out and even unpack!  After being in this room I don't think I would do another cruise without the balcony stateroom.  The food on the cruise was outstanding with a selection to please anyone and everyone.  Both the Windjammer food and the main dining room food were delicious though the portions seemed a bit small in the main dining room.  We had my-time dining and found it easy to make reservations on the nights we chose to eat in the dining room.

 

The service we received was, as in the past, totally outstanding.  Every staff member we encountered was pleasant and willing to help us no matter what the issue and the entertainment was awesome.

 

I know I will cruise again and it will definitely be with Royal Caribbean.

I love Royal!!

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

I am never disappointed when on Royal.  A-1 all the way.

No hidden charges!  ie free entertainment! Great food! Good service.

 

Went on Norweigien a couple of months ago (booked by my son) and was totally disenchanted.  Extra charges for everything.  $7.95 for room service.  Charges for 2 of the 3 main shows.  The rooms and hallways are smaller and the public space is shoulder to shoulder on sea days.

Cruise overall was excellent after the disorganized embarkment.

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

Embarkment process was very unorganized primarily due to the way people were lined up. Cruise and destinations were great. Food options were wonderful. All ship personnel were professional and courteous. The valet luggage service for disembarkation was a very pleasant surprise..

Great cruise.

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

We just returned and had a great time.  Embarkation at Ft Lauderdale was a long time wait, but everything else was wonderful.  Rudolf (Rudi) our night time waiter was the best as well as the food.  The ship was beautiful and had plenty of things to do.  Getting off and on at the different ports was a breeze.  Overall, I would definitely book another cruise on Royal Caribbean.

ups and downs

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

some of the food in the dining room was poor quality, however meals in the windjammer were pretty good, on the two nights we went there instead of the dining room.  Chops grill was good, but if you wanted a porterhouse it was another charge, what a ripoff.  Ribeye not offered at chops grill, only strip or filet for us meat eaters.  Bed was terrible, I'm a side sleeper, I would wake up with a numb shoulder. Room steward put extra padding under sheets, what a great steward.  Staff is great.  Ship is clean.  They canceled private island due to protests, they should of went somewhere else, or given us a credit, or something. Paid for a 3 stop cruise and received 2.  In Falmouth our excursion was canceled due to rain, another let down, but that is not the fault of RCCl.  They didn't do any parades on the main deck like other voyager class ships.  Not enough to do.  I'm a Emarald member with RCCl and I do like this cruise line, but something was missing on this ship.  I like to hear steel drum bands at the pool, not here.  Cruise director is a flop. I have  cruised 24 times, about half with carnival and most of the balance with RCCL.  Needless to,say I booked a 9 day on the same ship because it goes to Aruba, if another ship on this line did the same stops, I would of done a different ship.  This was the first time I couldn't get my table changed, requested a table for four and we had a table for 8 we were a party of 4 and late seating. A table of four 3 feet behind our table, which was empty and not set up for the whole cruise, that really pissed me off.  So much for being a Emerald member.  So all and all, don't be afraid to go, I think we just had a bad week, with weather.  But they really should give you something when they cancel a stop for a non weather related issue.  Have a a Great cruise.

Nice, but not as Nice as expected!!!

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

This was my first time cruising with Royal Caribbean. I've heard so many good things about Royal Caribbean cruises, so I guess I had my hopes up high. The inside cabin was spacious. The food was tasty, but the Main Dining Room needed more of a variety. The staff were great. The entertainment crew was OK. The club played Techno music all night. I guess overall the cruise was alright.  The only issue I had was the fact that due to unforeseen circumstances, we were unable to dock in Labadee, Haiti. This gave us an additional day at sea which is not what we paid for.  To add insult, they refunded us $8 and some cents for not being able to go to Labadee. Really!!! I'm not sure if I would cruise with Royal Caribbean again, but if I do it will not be on Navigator of the Seas.

No Labadee

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

We were unable to go to Labadee and I agree with that decision but I think Royal Caribbean should have had extra entertainment on that extra day at sea which was horrible weather wise.  There wasn't anything to do but spend money in casino or shops and I think they wanted that.

Great Vacation

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

Had a great time on Navigator of the Seas. The dining room service was awesome. Lots of fun things for the kids to do. The only problem I had was when we got our room charges they didn't give me my 50 royal carribean credit. They said they had jo record of it. We got our credit from . Overall good experience and would do it 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.
