We have always been VERY pleased with our experiences aboard Royal Caribbean ships. This ship however DID NOT meet our expectations. Most of the crew was very professional and helpful but very disorganized and not very knowledgable; the ... Read more

We chose the Navigator to celebrate my 50th birthday on the 16th and I wanted to leave on that day. Also, we hadn't been to Labadee or St. Kitts. We stayed at the Hyatt Place for one night before the cruise. Super easy and fast check ... Read more

As a Diamond member with RC, I was expecting a fantastic cruise as I have usually had. This cruise was far from being up to par on RC's side. Embarkation was a total disappointment. Diamond and Plus members were always offered a ... Read more

I liked that there were lots of beach chairs on deck. Checking out towels each day was a pain. And people did save chairs even though they weren't supposed to. The captain was super hard to understand and didn't really keep us updated. The ... Read more

What made this cruise memorable was the group of family and friends we were with. And the Bon Jovi cover band. Other than that, the ship itself was below average on what we expect from cruising with Royal. Our stateroom attendant was ... Read more

Sailed 5 times, 4 with RCI. Is it a floating Ritz-Carlton? No, but they over-deliver for their price-point, and if you have realistic expectations about the logistics of feeding, serving and entertaining thousands "royally," ... Read more

Our March cruise was a step up from our last RC experience. It appeared that the crew was really trying to put their best foot forward. Everywhere we went the crewed went above and beyond to make sure we were well taken care of. A Wind ... Read more
