Disembarkation was uneventful. Port Everglades is an easy port to navigate. We were onboard by noon and in our stateroom by 1pm. We were in a virtual balcony room #9303. Maybe it was just me but it seemed much smaller than a typical ... Read more

The Navigator is a great ship and offers all the amenities that a modern cruise ship should have. There were some things I liked about this cruise and some things I did not like at all. Since we live in Miami we just drive up I-95 to ... Read more

First-time out for me! I had no idea that I would like cruising. I found the initial 'cattle call' to get on the ship overwhelming and I needed the evening to decompress. The ship was impressive and clean. The staff was very service ... Read more

Hi, This was our first Navigator cruise, but we have been on her sister ship, the Adventure OTS, before. The staff in all venues - the main dining room, the Windjammer, the pool bar, and the Cosmopolitan room were always attentive ... Read more

This was our second time cruising with Royal Caribbean, last time was on the Mariner of the Seas a few years back. Our most recent cruise was with Princes Cruises, so there were the inevitable comparisons here and there. Overall it was a ... Read more

I travelled on this cruise with my friend - we are both late 30s and have been friends since college. We both travelled in on the day of embarkation, so we did not utilize a hotel. That said, I've stayed in the Embassy Suites and Hyatt ... Read more

This is our 10th cruise on Navigator. We have done both pre and post dry dock cruises on her, and one thing has remained a constant, it is a great experience. The crew is outstanding, they greet you warmly every time you see them. That ... Read more

I should start by saying the staff on the Navigator is great. But, this ship was refurbished in 2014 & was only outfitted with virtual screens in certain cabins (we had such a cabin) and navigation screens on each floor. I take issue ... Read more

After a 5-year cruising hiatus, we decided to book a 7-day Western Caribbean cruise with Royal Caribbean. We were both pleased and disappointed with the changes to cruising that have occurred in the interim. Security was noticeably more ... Read more

This was our first cruise and we were so excited! We arrived on time and had to wait 3 hours (with a baby) to board the ship. We bought a drink package, but didn't realize they were charging us every day for the entire 8 days. That is ... Read more

The Navigator was a wonderful ship. I love the larger ships with a promenade. We were in a balcony cabin D2-9252 which was roomy and plenty of storage. We also loved the location and easy access to everywhere we wanted to go. The ship ... Read more

Don't be afraid to take this cruise after reading the reviews. We almost didn't and that would have been unfortunate. At the end of the day, NOS is a beautiful ship with a wonderful, hardworking crew. The 8-night is a wonderful ... Read more

Our first time on RCL, being fairly loyal to NCL. Could not turn down a special price of under $180 pp. Arranged for our own transfers, arrived at port and bag taken and were shown into terminal around 2:45 PM. Very long lines, snaking ... Read more

I have always loved RCCL. I talked a first time cruiser into going on a short test cruise..WORST DECISION. This ship has absolutely no management. We had a very old and brown washcloth on our deck from the time we got there until we ... Read more
