We had a wonderful trip. We love sailing on the Royal Caribbean cruise ships. This was 5th time for us. Our family was with us to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. We all had a great time. We were disappointed in the excursion trip in Turkey where we were dropped off the bus at a rug company and after their showing how rugs were made,about 6 salesmen came into room and we felt undue pressure to buy a rug. Royal Caribbean should not condon this type of thing. We were there to enjoy our wonderful trip and the excursions, which we did.

We had our very photogenic granddaughter with us and could not resist having her picture taken at every place. We bought
$758.00 worth of photos and felt like the other 15 we could lnot afford although they were great pictures. We asked for a
discount for the other 15 but was told emphatically "no". If
you still have the pictures for room 2512 & 2516 for the Mantells, maybe you would consider mailing them to us instead of trashing.

We had a fabulous time and will certainly book our next trip next year on thed Royal Caribbean.

The food was so good and all the waiters, in the dining room and the cabin staff were excellent.We couldnt have asked for better service.

In our opinion, our best sailing has been on THE ROYAL CARIBBEAN CRISE LINE.

Recommends Navigator of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Food was out of this world
Cabin / Stateroom
Comfortable and cabin staff just great. Room was kept clean.
Service and Staff
Nightly shows were fantastic
Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey
Turkey was our favorite. We could have toured there for days. We were not happy at being taken to a rug company and having pressure put on us to buy a rug. Royal Caribbean should not allow this stop by the bus.
Don't Miss: Visit all that you can. It was such a wonderful place for our family to see together.
Messina, Sicily
Loves Sicily. One of our favorites
Don't Miss: Dont miss any of it.
Piraeus (Athens), Greece
Athens was such a wonderful visit.
Don't Miss: Don't miss any of Athens
Iraklion (Heraklion), Crete
Loved it. A beautiful place to visit.
