August 2015 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip) Cruise on Navigator of the Seas
This was our first cruise and we didn't have super high expectations after hearing of experiences from our friends. As it turns out, the ship was very large (no seasickness!), it had great service (especially in the main dinner dining room), and tons of things to do onboard (flowrider, rock climbing, casino, etc.). The lines at the cruise ports were shorter for Royal Caribbean than for Carnival (both ships had similar stops) and we were able to better maximize our time at each location. Rooms were larger than I expected since we only booked interior staterooms. There was even one dinner where we had lobster tails, which was delicious. Great value overall.
