Ship: Navigator of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple

This was our 2nd cruise and 1st time on the Navigator of the Seas. The ship was pleasant, clean, very friendly and gracious staff. Rooms were spacious. It was not booked to full capacity so we never had to wait in lines, etc. I would recommend the wine tasting event in the wine bar - educational and good wine. We also got great massages at the spa, but be prepared for the staff to try and sell you products at the end. The food in the main dining room and the Windjammer Cafe was average and nothing to write home about. Would definitely recommend breakfast and lunch in the main dining room instead of the buffet lines at the was better. Very disappointed in the change of ports 10 days before we sailed. We were supposed to travel to Ocho Rios, Jamaica but they changed the itinerary to Montego Bay because there were going to be too many ships in Ocho Rios. Thank goodness for the supervised excursion in Jamaica, otherwise we would have stayed on the ship when we docked. Overall, relaxing vacation but would try a different ship next time to see the difference.

Food and Dining

Soups and Caesar salad always excellent. Desserts tended to be dry or tasteless. Just average food and not enough veggies (i.e. 2 asparagus on the plate)

Something for everyone

Service and Staff

Very helpful and attentive. Even the dealers in the casino were helpful and would help teach you if you'd never gambled before!

We did the fun, sun and snorkel excursion. Not great snorkeling site and not much to see. Margaritaville was fun but that was it. Would not recommend stepping out on to the streets. Many people who had cruised before stayed on the ship because was dangerous and waste of time if not doing an excursion

Pros: Friendly staff and plenty of events

Cons: food and change of port 10 days before embarking

Recommends Navigator of the Seas? Yes!
