Navigator of the Seas Overview

Recently overhauled in 2019, Navigator of the Seas boasts an unrivaled suite of Royal Amplified amenities geared toward families and active travelers looking for nonstop fun on board. The latest Navigator of the Seas refurbishments added new dining options, Instagram-worthy nightlife, and a host of family-friendly activities, including miniature golf, an ice-skating rink, and Battle for Planet Z laser tag. And on the top deck, Royal Caribbean transformed the main pool into a resort-style oasis with two completely new water features: Soar over the edge of the deck headfirst on the transparent Riptide mat racer, or set a new personal best on the Blaster aqua coaster.

Royal Caribbean has also upped its dining and nightlife game on Navigator by adding several party zones aimed at young and young-at-heart cruisers. Discover exciting international flavors at El Loco Fresh, or shake up an original cocktail at the poolside Lime and Coconut bar. Other additions include Hooked Seafood with classic New England style dishes and the Bamboo Room, a Polynesian-themed watering hole with a laid back vibe.

Starting in February 2019, Navigator of the Seas departs from Miami to various Caribbean destinations, including Aruba, Grand Cayman, and Mexico. Weekend getaway routes will treat passengers to a stop at Royal Caribbean's private island in the Bahamas as part of its exclusive Perfect Day at CocoCay resort and theme park experience.

New, exciting,entertaining and trilling by Newandhappycrui

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

My first cruise got off to a great start with a quick and effort less embankment. As a Key passenger I had special welcoming and departure meal arrangements . The food choices in the Main dining room was extremely varied and tasty. As I chose the Unlimited dining package I had access to the restaurants that gave me quiet dining . Though the room I choose was small, we did not spend a lot of time in the room as there were lots of interesting activities and places to do and see to keep us busy

715 Navigator of the Seas Tips

Apr 08, 2013

Bring a few extension cords. The room had only a few outlets.

Apr 22, 2015

I lost a diamond necklace on the next to last night and the cleaning service people found it and turned it in that says something for the honesty of the ships staff

May 11, 2014

Take advantage of the free on-board activities such as trivia, the quest, and late night comedy.
