One previous cruise with Royal Caribbean, which we HATED.... this one was much better and they were doing well until it was time to leave. Long story short:
If you are Elite or Medallion with any airline do *NOT* use their baggage valet program.... they charged us for bags when they claimed they wouldn't and now it's a fight between the airline and the cruise line for $50 that should NOT have been charged. Kind of ruins the whole vacation. Also, they swear up and down like robots that the last bus to the airport is at 7:30 when they *KNOW* that this is totally false. Save time, money, and aggravation and take a taxi. The other downside to baggage valet (in general) - if there are seats available on an earlier flight, you can't go stand by as your BAGS must travel with you....

Pros: Nice ship

Cons: Departure procedures

Recommends Navigator of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
DINNER: My Time Dining was not quite as easy or convenient as Freestyle on Norwegian, but with patience and humor, the food was quite good and the staff very friendly.

The buffets were.... well, buffets.... I've had better and certainly had worse.
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Other than the fiasco at the end, no complaints.
