Sailed December 2016
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

Our beloved RCCL really dropped the ball on this one and has shaken our opinion of the cruise line. My wife and I are Diamond Crown and Anchor members and this was our 20th cruise on RCCL. We sailed on the Navigator of the Seas last ... Read more

Ok so where to start, so many things to say. First of all, we had to wait 4 1/2 hours in line in the heat just to get on the ship. We never went to a terminal. It was a tent that was even hotter inside to wait in more lines. After a couple ... Read more

We sailed in October on the Navigator, and hoped this cruise would be an improvement. We had been looking forward to this cruise particularly visiting Boston which neither of us had been to. We usually have an inside cabin but on this ... Read more

We have cruised on RCCL for many years and although have not reached pinnacle status, we have 500+ points. We were extremely disappointed with the disorganization we observed during this cruise. The debacle in Boston was unforgivable and ... Read more

Having a home in England and a winter home in Florida we always cruise both both ways, in November and April. Usually the cruise lines try to make this repositioning cruise special but from the moment we boarded it had the feeling of a ... Read more
