We decided to get some sunshine & heat and to celebrate a birthday, Christmas & New Year all in one trip. Our room was a JS on deck 9, serviced by Wayan, who did an excellent job. He knew we were early risers, so our room was ... Read more

I would have rated higher, but the condition of ships that I have been on lately (this one, the Navigator, and the Rhapsody in early December) were both in need of some TLC. The crew was great as usual. The food was above average but the ... Read more

As a background we have cruised with RCCL 7 times previously, on all of the Freedom class ships plus Oasis, Allure and Anthem. We have also cruised with NCL on Getaway, Breakaway and Epic. We booked this cruise back in summer 2015, based ... Read more

In general, the ship was well run, clean, and had a great variety of entertainment and activities. She's showing her age, and is definitely due for drydock and overhaul, but other than that I had no complaints about the Navigator itself. ... Read more

AWFUL: PADI service. We understand the policy of not serving kids under 12 years old. What it is unacceptable is that the guy from South Africa in charge does not help in contacting other PADI centers to facilitate diving to families ... Read more

I give this a 3 but some areas I would only give 2 Food Main restaurant Mostly Cold. When asked for the food hot, it was warmed up so that it was scalding. This was a daily occurrence until we stopped going into the dining room. The ... Read more

This was my family's first cruise so we have nothing really to compare it to, however, we all LOVED this ship-its crew-the food-and the countries we visited. From day one, we were truly treated like guests. Our cabin steward ... Read more

We chose this cruise to visit the ABC islands, especially Bonaire, which we hadn`t previously visited. Arrived at Miami terminal around 12:30 to long lines awaiting check in. We went to our Diamond line which really didn`t make any ... Read more

No need to beat a dead horse. Read the reviews for Navigator Dec 4 and Dec 9 sailings. They pretty much sum things up. High points for me: price and ports and some ship staff. Low points: food, cleanliness and entertainment. My Jr. ... Read more

We had sailed on Navigator of the seas, (NOS), back in 2003, 2004 and 2006 and as newer and larger ships came out we gravitated toward them. I found that a nine night trip had opened that left out of Miami and went to Labadee, (RCCL's ... Read more

If you're below the age of 60 you should think twice before booking one of these cruises in the low season. This was my 22nd cruise, and by far the most depressing experience so far. As I've tried many different cruise lines I've only ... Read more

I really didn't really plan much for this cruise as we had so much going on before it like a funeral and a wedding, so my level was much lower than previous cruises just because we didn't have time to think too much about it. I'll break ... Read more

Overall the ship was beautiful and clean. The service was adequate but nothing special and the food for the most part was somewhat below average. Embarkation was delayed due to four passengers hiding on the ship from the previous ... Read more

We arrived in Miami the day before the departure which is always a good idea when coming from Canada as you can never predict weather and missing a cruise embarkation because of plane delay is never a good way to start a holiday. We stay ... Read more

After driving to Miami, we made it through the port quickly. We had a little wait as they were still waiting on a few folks to disembark, but RCCL kept us in the loop as we waited in a comfortable waiting area. Once we were on board ... Read more

This was our 50th cruise with Royal and by far the worst. Boarding was a nightmare. I understand that there was no terminal, just a tent. That was out of Royal's control. But there were no Royal representatives to help on the dock. No ... Read more
