Navigator of the Seas

April 2015 - Navigator of the Seas to Caribbean - Western

RCL's Navigator of the Seas; a worthwhile cruising vacation

The ship is beautiful, the size perfect; you can walk easily from one end to the other without being exhausted. All of the staff provided exemplary service. Food in the Sapphire Dining Room was always delicious. The buffet in Windjammer Cafe was good, but could have been a bit more varied in selections. We did not partake of any of the specialty restaurants. Entertainment was high quality. There were many different activities available. There was an outbreak of Noro Virus on board, but it was quickly contained and dealt with efficiently.

There were a couple of negatives. Boarding took too long, and disembarkation was a disaster. We will avoid the Galveston port for future cruises. It's too small to handle three thousand six hundred people getting off at the same time. We would also avoid going Easter week or spring break. Eleven hundred children were on board. Unruly children, obnoxious teenagers, and oblivious parents were tough to deal with and, at times, were a wet blanket on everyone's fun. 

Our favorite cruise line is Celebrity. RCL came close, but the negatives above leaves them in second place for us. This was my ninth cruise and here is how I would rate them: Celebrity #1, RCL #2, Carnival #3, Norwegian #4, Princess 0 ( never to go on again)
