Navigator of the Seas overview

By - Updated Mar. 9, 2020

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.

Refurbished Ship was a Pleasant Surprise by AtLarge

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Navigator of the Seas / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

The cruise exceeded my expectations. Although there were some negative aspects to the ship/cruise (read my full review), the positives easily outweighed the negatives. I've always thought that cruising is not for me, but this cruise changed my mind. Navigator of the Seas is a wonderful ship, and the cruise was a great value.

Amazing First Cruise! by Newcruiser20

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Navigator of the Seas / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

Enjoyed the cruise immensely. Definitely want to go again. The staff was wonderful. Not sure how they train everyone to be so nice and respectful and willing to do anything to make you happy. The food was amazing...did not feel a need to go to any of the "unique" dining experiences. The main dining area offered top notch food and there was a buffet and taco station near the pool. You could not go hungry and the shows/activities were really enjoyable as well.

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

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

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