We really have but a few complaints and many praises for this cruise. My fiancé and I boarded the ship in Miami with no problems or delays. Once aboard, beverages were plentiful and we had plenty of assistance finding our way around ... Read more

First off to all the Veteran Cruisers, Let's face it the industry has changed dramatically. The days of the Deck Parties, Ice Carvings, Midnight Buffets, Festive sail away parties and Theme nights are a thing of the past. Not sure what the ... Read more

I must first say my wife and I cruise at least twice a year. We've chosen RCL as our cruise line of preference. Living in Florida we have a lot of choices, and RCL has never disappointed us and currently we're Diamond Status. We been ... Read more

My review will focus on the casino aspect of the ship as well as my overall opinion of the trip. The Navigator of the Seas is in the Voyager class, and is similar to the Independence of the Seas in its layout. EMBARKMENT: Went quickly ... Read more

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

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

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 used Uber to get to the port of Miami. This service has proved invaluable to us as we have moved up in years. The driver lifts our bags into the car as well as at the port. The Uber driver arrived within 2 minutes of our call. We ... 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
