January 2016 - 6 Night Western Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Navigator of the Seas
The ship and the room were clean and spacious. The stateroom attendants( Cherrymae and Conrad, we had 2 rooms) were wonderful. The dining staff, Rodrigo and Neil were amazing. They were our standout who made the cruise better for us. The food in the windjammer, where you have breakfast and lunch was abundant and adequate. Food in the mail dining room was good. Drinks were 11.00 each and very good. The excursions were expensive. We were so disappointed that we were unable to dock in the Grand Caymans. Jamaica was ok. We did a Dunes/Beach excursion that was $129.00 each. Our 7 hours excursion was far, The Dunes was one hour away and the beach was one and a half hours back. The Dunes was fun, however a lot of the guides skipped sections because it was so crowed. I noticed groups starting half way through and did not even know. My family missed one section and was also unaware. At the beach we had 2 hours with lunch(I thought it would be longer) The food was just ok and we were only there 90 min. The Beach was nice and clean however we were not there long enough. Labadee was nice, we had a cabana on the water (500.00) for the day and it was wonderful. Make sure you have a Labadoozie, Loved it! The seaweed on the bottom was horrible but we had brought our water shoes so that made it better. Nice cabana, water, floats, attendant, it was extremely relaxing and we were there from 10-4:30. So, we felt it was worth the money. Food was provided by the ship and was fine. Internet was also expensive $20.00 a day and the second device $10.00 You have to pay once you start and until the end of the cruise. You cant just get it for a day.
You are constantly asked to make a reservation in one of the upgraded restaurant at an extra charge. We did go to one. We took a sushi class for $30/per person. It was fun. You made 4 rolls each and that was your lunch. It was worth it. A 25% discount on your next meal made it nice to go back. Janice was our server and so nice, food is very good at Izumi. I would probably not do a Navigator of the Sea cruise again.
