Fantastic Stops- Average Cruise Line

Sail Date: September 01, 2010

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Balcony

The cruise ship itself was great. I loved all of the venues on it, such as the mini-golf, rock climbing, and the mall. The staff was hard to find, and we often waited 45 minutes to get help at the customer service deck. They also closed the dining room for lunch everyday but one, claiming that it depends on the ports, and too little people were in there. This caused the buffet to overflow, and ofter you could not find a seat in the buffet. Another thing, is every announcement they made, was translated into at least 7 different languages, and was often very obnoxious. The mall was fantastic, and i loved the stops. This was our 8th cruise, and our 3rd with Royal Caribbean, and i did expect a bit more perks, though we did not receive anything. Over the cruise ship experience was average, the venues were great, and the stops were great. Also, I was very disappointed in how the dining room was run, as we were switched around multiple times, along with others, and they did not do anything to help with that problem. Finally, we were on when the least amount of Europeans were supposed to be on, June, and they were everywhere! the amount of translation was way too much, and the staff was often pre-occupied with them.

Pros: the venues on the ship, the ports,

Cons: too many people, buffet was overflowing, dining room closed for luch, translated every speech in multiple languages, too little staff, food was average, too large- so hard to get service

Recommends Navigator of the Seas? Yes!

Service and Staff
the staff was accommodating, though i felt there were not enough for the size of the ship, and the amount of passengers.
Food and Dining
The food was average, and the staff in the dining room was nice. Though, everyone on the ship had a lot of trouble with the seating arrangements. Multiple people, including us, were moved around almost every night. I was very disappointed in how it was handled as well. And that was one of the major downfalls.
Cabin / Stateroom
the stateroom was clean, and the staff was friendly, thought they were very outdated, with the tv's, and in bathroom areas.
the venues on the ship were great, and the shows were only average.
Ship Quality
The ship was very large, but had a nice layout. The public ares were always clean, as were the bathrooms, yet i felt the rooms were a bit outdated.
