Navigator of the Seas

August 2015 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip) Cruise on Navigator of the Seas

Nice ship, good ports

The Navigator is a well designed ship which was surprisingly stable throughout the cruise (compared to other ships we have sailed). Food was good though some preparations were puzzling (serving stuffed butterfly shrimp still in the shell). Activities/shows were good. We really liked the Ice show. For the most part the staff was great.

Room for improvement:

1) Outside of the buffet, there are no drink stations to get tea, coffee, juice (except for the one location on deck 5 forward, not handy for when your at the pool.) 

2) They had no harnesses for full sized adults to use the Rock Climbing wall.

3) There were no porters available to help you with luggage at the Galveston terminal when we boarded. We have used this port 4 times before and never had an issue. Not sure what happened but be prepared to haul your own bags.

mlantz's Tips

George Town, Grand Cayman - Book your excursion as early as possible so you will have priority on Tender times and have more time to shop/explore afterwards.
Cozumel, Mexico - For a fun excursion take a cab (~$20) to Chankanaab to snorkel and see shows, swim with dolphins. Lots of cabs to take you back to ship.
Navigator of the Seas Navigator of the Seas - The Deck 11 front observation and Bridge view was neat and worth finding. We didn't purchase any drink packages and, though we drank all we wanted (~2 sodas and 4 alcohol drinks a day per person), we didn't spend as much as if we had bought a package.
