Review SummaryMy sister in law and I recently sailed on the Navigator of the seas. This was my sister's first cruise and my 5th. I had never sailed Royal Carribean before. I was pleasantly surprized by the beauty and size of the ship. It was at least as beautiful, if not more so than other ships I had been on. The service was wonderful!! We had an inside room, which I have always had, and I think this was by far the nicest. Our room steward, Habib, was excellent, quietly friendly and provided perfect service. We booked the cruise through , which I have used 3 times now and their service, as always was wonderful, including a ship to shore call made to clarify a credit. Royal Carribean was excellent in our interactions with excursions and giving us a full credit on an excursion that did not go as planned. They were easy to work with and I was impressed with their efficient service. The food was very good. I think the buffets were the best I have ever had as far as quality and choice. The dinners were very good but I personally think Celebrity's dinners are just a notch better. Although I was impressed with the options of several appetizing low sugar/fat options at every meal as well as desserts. Everyone who had these loved them. The serving sizes were smaller than I am use to, but this is a welcomed change as there is always too much food. Our dinner service was excellent, but again I think Celebrity's dinning room service is just a touch better. Over all I would say this was an EXCELLENT cruise and we are planning to go back next year. I would strongly recommend it to anyone.
It wasn't until the last 2 days that we discovered the coffee bar was included, it was a very nice touch and one I will facilitate next time.
The prices of drinks was comperable to most drinks at home. A glass of wine being $6.25 much cheaper than celebrity! I had the most wonderful Patron Margarita!!!
This was also my first 5 night cruise as I have always done 7 nights before...and I loved it, just the right amount of time!
