The Navigator is a well designed ship which was surprisingly stable throughout the cruise (compared to other ships we have sailed). Food was good though some preparations were puzzling (serving stuffed butterfly shrimp still in the shell). Activities/shows were good. We really liked the Ice show. For the most part the staff was great.
Room for improvement:
1) Outside of the buffet, there are no drink stations to get tea, coffee, juice (except for the one location on deck 5 forward, not handy for when your at the pool.)
2) They had no harnesses for full sized adults to use the Rock Climbing wall.
3) There were no porters available to help you with luggage at the Galveston terminal when we boarded. We have used this port 4 times before and never had an issue. Not sure what happened but be prepared to haul your own bags.

The Deck 11 front observation and Bridge view was neat and worth finding. We didn't purchase any drink packages and, though we drank all we wanted (~2 sodas and 4 alcohol drinks a day per person), we didn't spend as much as if we had bought a package.
