- Drinks are over priced. If you don't purchase a beverage package you end up paying more than the package for 9 cokes. Otherwise you are stuck with extremely diluted lemonade or punch.
- Too many children unsupervised.

Pros: The staff were excellent. The Ship was huge and there were a lot of things to do on board. The excurisions were well planned and excellently executed. The ship's photographers were always on site and on the excurisions to capute beautiful pictures.

Cons: Too many children on board running around without their parents. Lunch in the Windjammer was always packed, never enough seats to eat. I had to eat standing up at a counter for 2 lunches. Food on board was typical resort/cruise food. Not much variety, often lacking in taste.

Recommends Navigator of the Seas? Yes!

Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
Out dated. Bathroom smelled no matter how much the attendant cleaned.
Not much to do if you are a single person on board.
Ship Quality
Service and Staff
Staff was always excellent and eager to help.
Messina, Sicily
Mount Etna. I could live without seeing the town of Taromina. Not much to do or see there except really overpriced shops.
Souda (Chania), Crete
Might as well stay on the ship than do any of the excursions, unless you really want to see a Monestary.
Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey
Temple of Artemis. Turkish Bazars - good deals but you have to haggle.
Piraeus (Athens), Greece
Temple of Athena and the Acropolis. Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sunion.
