Navigator Cruise

Sail Date: January 29, 2011

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

We had great company at our dinner table. The ship has something for everyone to do and is beautifully appointed. However, it is like being on the islands with people popping out everywhere asking for money. The "good food" had to be paid for. Dinner fare was marginal at best but for $50 per couple you could go to a restaurant on board and eat what you used to get as part of your sailing fee. And, this is definitely a smoker's ship. This should be stated on the company's website. The ventilation is such that no matter what deck you are on, you are walking through cigarette smoke. For a non-smoker, this is miserable. There was one non-smoking night at the casino which was a great idea but everyone smoked anyway and RCCL did nothing to stop it. Despite these things this is a beautiful ship and the itinerary and activities available were perfect.

Pros: Ship was beautiful.

Cons: Not a good ship for non-smokers. Poor layout and ventilation. Smoke everywhere you went.

Recommends Navigator of the Seas? Yes!

Food and Dining
This was our 5th cruise on RCCL in 15 years and the food quality has deteriorated significantly. To get "old-style" cruise ship food you have to pay extra for it each night ($50 per couple)
Ship Quality
Service and Staff
We had THE BEST wait staff ever! Luciano and Christiano are the best! The SPA staff on the other hand...a different story altogether.
This ship has something for everyone!
Cabin / Stateroom
Cozumel, Mexico
Cozumel has been heavily damaged by weather and is not back to its normal beauty and great offers.
George Town, Grand Cayman
