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!

Old ship

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

  This ship was refurbished last year, but many details showed her age.  The balcony in our stateroom was small, showing rust and the flooring was coming up.  The mattress was old and bumpy.  Who knows how old it was.  Asked for a firmer mattress and was denied. The food in the main dining room was excellent.  The buffet was weak.  Fried eggs were precooked and put under a heating lamp.  The buffet only had one toaster working and toast was pre made and put in a a basket and cold.  Bread selection was limited to 3 choices.  Other ships have 5 or 6 selections.  The lunch buffet used dutch ovens and they were old and chipped.  Entertainment was ok but not great.  In the promenade there was music but limited or no seating.  I don't believe that I would cruise RCL again.

Awesome!!!

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

Our whole experience from the time we boarded, to the time we disembarked was terrific. The whole staff made us feel welcome. There was so much to see and do not only on the ship, but all the ports of call as well. Too much to list. The food was excellent, and so much to choose from. Everyone assigned to us, from the stateroom attendant to the dinning staff could not do enough for us. They really go out of their way to make your cruise experience a memorable one. Thanks Royal Caribbean

Best cruise yet

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

Older Family of 7 had a great time...weather, service, food, ship was perfect...Not thriled with the lead singers in the shows the harmonies didn't blend in fact several people around us got up and left..the other singers and dancers were great..don't get me wrong they are very talented and have fine voices but their individual style and pitch was not in sync..My Sister -in-laws virtual screen was broken upon her arrival to her stateroom and the staff had if fixed in no time gave her a nice discount and a bottle of wine which was nice and saw to it all was well in her room..would have liked more time in Cozumel...Allure of the Seas docked about the same time as us and was allowed to stay till 6:00 I think our 3:30 was too early had to leave our resort at 2:30 to get back in time...other than that all was very nice..

Curse of the hot tub

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

Cruise ok but got finger infection from bacteria in hot tub. Will never ever go in public tubs. These tubs can never be bacteria free. Too many people going in them and film lurks in jets, piping. Don't trust with all Legionnaires, rash, infections from poor hygiene of guests. Medical not much help. Should immediately want to see any guest for comp evaluation with infectious disease to avoid epidemic. Had to get own antibiotics in Belize. Ship medical fees expensive $$$. Also feel wifi should be reasonable $ and Compass could b on smartphones, save all that paper! Most want to send quick messages back home, not linger. Being out of touch is frustrating. Chef not great this trip, main dining, somewhat dissapointed. Showtime should b weekly planner, not morning of show. We like to know. staff not informed on shows. Toilets jammed 6th level, no help to guests. Why not save few empty cabins for emergency moves, make their trip not a complaining disaster? They will never cruise RCL if not treated right, why aggregate them? Just sayin... we've done 16 various cruises...but not dedicated to one line. Overall good trip for us....

Royal Caribbean - Navigator of the Seas, Feb. 2015

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

We enjoyed our get away and had a relaxing vacation.  There was plenty to do to keep entertained, rooms were neat & clean, and the eating facilities had a variety of tasty options, although the portion sizes were a smaller this year.  The ship was always kept clean and orderly, inside & out.  Enjoyed the bands and especially the poolside fun everyday.  Some of the bars did not have a full stock of liquor (scotch, amaretto, spiced rums) so we had to search out the ones that did.  The RC staff could have been a whole lot friendlier.  Honestly, after 3 cruises on RC, the staff on this trip were on the cusp of being rude.  Don't waste your $$ on dinner at Chops, we've had better steaks at Denny's.  When we complained, they offered a 10% discount...big deal, keep it.  We were cursed at and insulted in Cozumel for not entering some of the stores along the main street in the shopping district. One vendor tried selling us plastic blue "diamond" earrings at the big discount of $900.  Overall, RC gave us a nice vacation.  We refused to let those that had attitudes ruin our vacation and proceeded to have a great time.

trip review

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

Traveling aboard the Navigator of the Seas was a very pleasant experience.  We have made a number of trips on different ships but this was one of the best yet.  Ship staff very pleasant and friendly at all times.  Food was excellent and plentiful at all times.  The very minor negative comment would be that the ice cream machines on the 11th deck were closed after about 9pm.  Those of us that would like a little ice cream could not find any other than the Ben & Jerry bar on the 5th deck which we had to pay extra for.

Waste of Money with Royal Caribbean

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

My husband and I spent all the cash we got from our wedding to take a honeymoon cruise. Everyone told us that instead of going with Carnival, we needed to take Royal Caribbean, because it was a step up and much better. Don't get me wrong, the ship was nice, but our experience was not. My husband and I are in our 20's and we felt disrespected and pushed to the side due to our age. Our waiters were condescending at times and we never really got to know who they were. The last 3 nights at dinner, it took 10-15 minutes for them to even acknowledge us and to even get a glass of water. Royal Caribbean was constantly trying to sell you, what they call top of the line items, that were not top of the line items. The whole cruise was very "gimmicky" and we did not have fun at all. With 3 days left, we were wishing we could get off the boat and go home. This was a waste of money to us. This cruise would be recommended if you are an older couple as they were well respected on the ship. I wish we had gone with Carnival as my experiences with them have been amazing. Food for lunch was also not very good as most food was stale and cold. I would not recommend Royal Caribbean or the Navigator of the Seas.

Love and Sun and Booze

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

This was me and my boyfriends first cruise but definitely not our last.   We were impressed at all the things to do on the ship.  And we had heard that Royal Caribbean had the best food of all the cruise ships but wow the food was amazing and the service was great as well.  Our server Melwin waited on us the first night and we requested him every night after.  He really knew his menu even though it changed every night.  And just to give you an idea of the food we ate prime rib, lamb, lobster and so much more and it was all great quality.  Cant wait to go back!
