Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

I recently took my teenaged grandson on the cruise. I have been on Royal Caribbean several years ago as well as other cruise lines. I found this experience good but not outstanding compared to other cruises I have taken

Pros: Service

Cons: food

Recommends Navigator of the Seas? Yes!

Food and Dining
Some dishes in main dining room were too salty. The Windjammer was convenient and had a large variety but the food was average at best and could be compared to a mediocre cafeteria in taste and quality. There should be no charge for soft drinks.
Ship Quality
It was very clean and mostly easy to get around. However I did not like having to go to different floors some time to get from one end of the ship to the other
Cabin / Stateroom
I was very pleased with the size and availability of storage space
Service and Staff
All were very friendly and helpful. The stateroom attendant and the waiter assigned to our table were both very accommodating and eager to please. They quickly learned names and preferences.
The ice show and the Mo-town music show were excellent. The circus parade was good but hard for everyone to enjoy due to the location.
Children's Programs
Having an area for teenagers to just hang out and giving them a curfew was a great idea.
Souda (Chania), Crete
Not much to see there unless you want to spend a day at the beach
Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey
Messina, Sicily
Interesting place
