WE always enjoy cruising on Royal Caribbean and the Navigator or the Seas is a wonderful ship.It was a pleasure to meet so many nice people who were traveling and also the couples at our dinner table. We found out we are from right around the Dallas area.   The excursions and ports were fun and interesting. The Trolley ride in Grand Cayman gave us lots of history about the island.  We had not really liked Jamaica before but Royal Caribbean built the new port at Falmouth. This was our first time to see it and it was just great. We felt very safe and it even had a DQ where we enjoyed a Blizzard!  Our Red Stripe Beach excursion was wonderful.  The water was beautiful and warm, the sand was smooth and even had shade trees to lie under. We had the most wonderful massage right on the beach.  I highly recommend this fun day...but use lots of sun screen.  I got a little burn because I didn't think I was going to be out very long....doesn't take long to get too much sun.  We really enjoyed this day and would do it again when we return to Jamaica.  Can't wait to start planning our next cruise.  Maybe back to Alaska.  If anyone plans to cruise very much, consider joining the Crown and Anchor group on Royal Caribbean.  You are treated like royalty because they really appreciate return customers.  Of course all cruisers are treated great, but you even get a few more perks the more often you return to RC.  The curfew for kids makes the nights much more restful than on other ships we have sailed.  For us Texans, Galveston is a wonderful port to drive to and  not have to worry about all the rules on planes these days.

Ship Quality

It was beautiful with Chihully pieces to decorate one of the bar areas. The ship has been totally redone since the last time we sailed on her. All new carpets and looked just great.

Very comfortable..but didn't look like this picture shown. We didn't have an extra chair or window.

Ship Tip

It's beautiful, all the shows were great. It's fun to go to the Solarium while most people are at the beaches or whatever on port day. You have the hot tub to yourself.

Easy to find parking and not expensive. Love that we can just drive to it from Dallas.
