Incredible Western Mediterranean Cruise

Sail Date: August 15, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Suite

This was our 3rd cruise but first time on Royal Caribbean. We sailed on the Navigator of the Seas and it was really a great experience overall. We were in a family suite as there were 6 of us and the amenities made us feel like royalty. The Concierge Service was the best I have ever had including evening happy hours, separate poolside areas reserved, reserved seating at the shows and more. The ship was extremely clean, the staff knew our names and the service all around was 5 star. The food in our dining room was also excellent and every night was a fun and unique experience.

Pros: the ports, the ship and the crew

Recommends Navigator of the Seas? Yes!

Children's Programs
The kids did not participate in the programs as much as we thought they would.
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
My time dining is fabulous. You can change your time every day based on your port of call and evening activities. The food was great and the service was better.
Cabin / Stateroom
Our suite was clean and the daily service was great.
Service and Staff
Our concierge helped us plan activities both on and off the ship every day. He was extremely knowledgeable about the ports and ship activities and helped us understand all of our suite amenities as we were new to the ship.
Spent part of every night after the shows at the Schooner Bar. Great talent at the piano bar drew a large crowd.
Genoa, Italy
Took the local train to Santa Margharita and then a bus to Portifino. Saved a lot of money and gave us more time in each city. Due to the warm weather the kids also swam in the mediterranean at one of the local beaches. The train system was very efficient and easy to follow and gave you enough choices to get back to port on time. Can even buy tickets in advance on the internet.
Cagliari, Sardinia
The bus took us round trip to the largest beach - Pueto Beach. We rented umbrellas and chairs and spent the day swimming in the ocean. It was great!!
Villefranche-Sur-Mer, France
We again took the train to Monte Carlo and then walked thru Monaco. Via bus for 1 euro each you can ride up to the Castle and have a great view of the city. We then took the same bus system all the way to Nice for lunch and a swim on the French Riviera. It was a busy but incredible day. Not enough time to see Cannes.
Don't Miss: Prince Albert's castle
Barcelona, Spain
We took a cab to Las Ramblas, the main shopping area, and then took a 4 hour guided bike tour of Barcelona that was really incredible. The kids did not want to be enclosed in a bus all day so this was a perfect opportunity to see the city which is too big to walk in a day. Our trip ended at the beach for lunch and sangria and the kids had time to swim. Great Experience.
Palma De Mallorca, Balearic Islands
Too tired to do anything but go to the beach.
