September 2014 - Navigator of the Seas to Caribbean - Western
We have only sailed on Carnival before. The service (stateroom and dining room) was superior. The "Mall-type" setup of shops, bars and otherwise was superior. The dining experience was excellent. The entertainment was average. I had no interest in wall climbing, ice capades, water sports or basketball. The buffet was ordinary and the food seemed to be the same everyday. There was no "omelette" bar, just someone taking orders for omelettes and someone cooking them, not always to specifications. The Promenade restaurant with "shrimp rolls" and being open 24 hours was excellent. The Captain was difficult to understand (on the PA) as was the Sushi Chef during their demo. The sales in the corridor were chaos, but I don't know how to make it better. I will sail Navigator again as I have a cruse planned May-2015. Overall most features were better than Carnival. The Casino was excellent and the dealers were very friendly.
