Overall exceptional ship "Navigator of Seas". We had clean rooms, great service, along with pretty darn good entertainment. Food in the dining rooms as usual was top notch. Servers are delightful. Windjammer has a good selection but is so congested with people that we typically eat in the quiet and exquisite atmosphere the dining rooms provide.

***IF you go to Ft. Lauderdale be sure to arrive prior to bording around 1pm or earlier. We arrived at 3pm and had to park about 2 miles away after being denied parking close by. It all took 1 hour to park!

Food and Dining

Windjammer offers great convenience, good selection with better than average food. However, its almost a struggle working through the crowd congestion to get what you want. Service is superb! Good thing they had the formal dining halls as my parents didn't care for WJ.

Cabin / Stateroom

Our bathroom had a persistent mildew smell but our junior suite was spacious. About the size of a nice hotel room with a big balcony.

Somewhat expensive to go on the excursions so we elected to just shop up and down the markets close to the port. It was a little cool so we passed on the scuba diving.
Don't Miss: na

Pros: Clean Rooms, Quick Service, & Kids Zone

Cons: Parking Nightmare in Ft. Lauderdale
