We done about seven cruises previously. Picked this cruise because we had not been to any of the ports of call (Jamaica, Grand Cayman and Labadee). Had some trepidation regarding this class of ship; sailed on Freedom Class (?) (one size ... Read more

First time on Royal Caribbean and a poor first impression. Check in was not bad, but could tell security screening was intended to find alcohol, not weapons - side table was full of confiscated booze. Stateroom was nice with a ... Read more

February 25 to March 5 on the Navigator of the seas. Embarkation was fairly easy despite leaving from the dreaded terminal 29. Prior to the cruise, I stayed at the Quality Inn airport/cruise port, which was fine with free shuttle service ... Read more

We flew from Newark to Fort Lauderdale the day before the cruise and stayed at the Hyatt Place. It was a very nice hotel, free breakfast, airport shuttle ($2 per room-not per person) and everything else you need within walking distance. ... Read more

I happen to love this class of ship with RCCL. The shopping promenade is a nice stroll when you feel like taking a walk, I love the ice shows and the theatre layout. Cabins are normal RCCL layouts. ...nothing fancy, but okay. The ship ... Read more

The service on the Navigator was excellent. Most of the issues we ran into were due to the age of the ship and overall cleanliness or lack of. When we entered our cabin the overwhelming smell of urine made us both gag. We spoke to our ... Read more

This was my 7th cruise with Royal Caribbean and 20th overall. I'd been looking forwarding to sailing on a Voyager class ship for some time because a travel agent friend had raved about the Mariner OTS. My husband and I thought the ... Read more

This was a great first cruise for our children. We had a great time and will be going again. I myself have cruised 7 times, with Royal Caribbean being a favorite. I find Carnival has too many non stop drunks, and Celebrity a little too ... Read more

It was a wonderful bonding time for my 19 yr-old daughter and me. Knowing that we will spend most of our time outside our cabin, we chose an inner stateroom (8237) which served us just fine. Our attendant (Adela Benliss-Nicaragua) was ... Read more
