Having done 4 Cruises before we decided to try a different cruise line. Embarkation and disembarkation went very smoothly and we were very impressed with this however I was extremely disappointed with this cruise. I travelled with my work ... Read more

We chose this particular cruise because of the ports of call. I'd previously sailed on a short voyage with Royal Caribbean whilst in the USA. This was about 10 years ago and had a great time so no reason not to try them again. Check in ... Read more

This was our first cruise. Embarkation was very good, everything was explained, I was very nervous, but was made to feel at ease. Our dinner table was with others, asked to have table for two, which was easy to change. Cabin was ... Read more

This is not one of the best ships with Royal Caribbean I have been on 3 others and they were far better than this one, everything about this ship was done on a budget, the entertainment was poor amateurish, the lack of activates on sea ... Read more

Always wanted to see the Norwegian fjords & we hoped by going in August (albeit late August) we would have decent weather. We had been to the Sounds in NZ on a stunning day in March on Radiance, so were hoping our luck would hold for ... Read more

I had never been on a cruise before and went purely to see the Fjords. Embarking was really very easy - we were on the ship within 15 minutes of entering the departure building. Immediately staff were helpful and attentive. The ... Read more

I was very impressed by how smoothly embarkation at Southampton went, we were on Navigator within 30 minutes. I had never cruised with RC before, previously I'd used Celebrity, however I chose RC for the ports they were visiting. I ... Read more

This was our second trip on Navigator of the Seas. We wanted to do a Norwegian Fjords cruise and this was one of two options offered by Royal Caribbean. Embarkation went very smoothly. We were allocated inside cabin 3029 which was ... Read more

Many previous reviews have been extremely negative and in some cases completely unfair, however each passenger has a different experience or point of view. Thankfully I have come off the ship having had a fantastic weeks cruise in Norway. ... Read more

Boarding process and Disembarkation were both Excellent Ship: Bit tired looking and didn't really have a wow factor. Probably not helped by weather being poor and things look less well in the rain Entertainment: Easily poorest we ... Read more

This was our first time with RCI. We travelled in a group of 10 and had booked early 6pm dining. When we got on at Southampton and cruise ship departed. It was 5-45 and still no bags delivered to cabin. I asked staff and was told it ... Read more

Although the ship has been refurbished handsomely, I found my cruise experience to be below average. I have always felt pampered on the cruises I have sailed on before this one. The small amenities that I have been accustomed to on ... Read more

This was our first cruise and we chose to do it after many flight delays and too much airport stress in previous years. That aspect of the holiday was so easy. We parked, some very friendly people took our luggage out of our car and we saw ... Read more

Where do I start. The boarding process was ok and the first thing we did was upgrade the drinks packages from select package. We went up to Windjammer (Canteen) and was walking around a few times looking for a table we finally got a ... Read more

Having done 30+ cruises, you would think I would know the score, but .... Arrived at port, all as usual, used the suggested parking method, which worked well for us. Fairly quick embarkation, pleasant staff. We embarked the ship and ... Read more

My family and I had never cruised before and hadn't known anyone who had been on a cruise so we booked this holiday completely blind. We chose Royal Caribbean because we were told by a travel agent that they were one of the best for ... Read more

We chose this cruise as it was part of our daughter's 21st birthday celebrations. Plus the fact that we sailed on the Explorer last year so expected the same standard and service we've come to expect on our last 6 cruises with Royal ... Read more

In keeping with many other comments there were a lot of good bits, and some less so. Starting with the good, embarkation at Southampton. Remarkably swift and efficient. On board 10 minutes after climbing out of the taxi. Wow. Cabin - ... Read more

Getting on the ship was fantastic - so organised at Southampton. Drop cases off, drop car off, get in a small queue to get Sea pass, passport control, security and onto the ship. We were on ship just after 11am, but cabins opened at ... Read more

Having cruised with a number of lines including Fred Olsen and P&O over period of 20 years, we had a fair idea of what we ought to expect when choosing Royal Caribbean. We chose the Navigator of the Seas Mediterranean cruise on 7 ... Read more
