While we have cruised many times on all of the cruise lines being located only 20 minutes from Port Everglades we had only one experience with RCL on the Oasis, and that was a good cruise so we thought we would try them again. Bad ... Read more

This was our second RCI cruise, first one was on Freedom. Ships almost identical except for size. Embarkation was very slow and line identification poor. Finally on board and walked through Windjammer three times looking for available ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the cost and for the islands visited. Not having to drive down to Miami was also a big plus. We had never cruised on one of the larger ships. This was about twice as big as we had sailed on before, yet it was ... Read more

Chose this as the 1st royal trip, previously cruising on carnival. Overall ship and amenities were very nice. Hallway outside cabin down to elevators smelled very musty and damp. Found out there had been a water leak and carpet was ... Read more

We picked this cruise just to get away for a break. This was our 5th cruise, 3 of which were in the last 17 months. (Did we say retirement!) 4 out of 5 cruises were on RC ships. We parked at Park 'N Go about a mile from the port. We ... Read more

I chose this cruise because it was priced right and I wanted to experience this ship. I also had never been to Labadee, their private island. The ship was beautiful and very clean. The cabin and especially the bathroom was quite ... Read more

Let me preface what I am about to convey by stating that I have been cruising since I was five years old when my grandparents (my grandmother is currently 89, still works as a travel agent, and has been on 108 cruises) first took me on the ... Read more

Party of 10 arriving the night before. Stayed at Holiday Inn Express on State Rte. 84. Free airport shuttle to hotel. Asked about getting the shuttle to the pier with the front desk. They use All-Star transport for a reasonable price ... Read more

We have always been VERY pleased with our experiences aboard Royal Caribbean ships. This ship however DID NOT meet our expectations. Most of the crew was very professional and helpful but very disorganized and not very knowledgable; the ... Read more

We needed an 8 day cruise to attain our Diamond status with Royal Caribbean's Crown and Anchor program. The Navigator of the Seas was the only one that met the criteria for us. Port Everglades was a piece of cake. Royal Caribbean rep ... Read more

Hubby and I enjoyed a relaxing week on Navigator. This was our second time on this ship - the timing and ports just worked out. During this trip we graduated to Diamond level - it only took us 25 years! The ship was in good shape and crew ... Read more

We booked this cruise 1.5 years ago. It was a first sibling cruise for my husband's siblings and spouses. There were 8 of us traveling together. We arrived at the Port at 10 AM. By 11:15 we were able to board the ship. We did a quick ... Read more

We chose the Navigator to celebrate my 50th birthday on the 16th and I wanted to leave on that day. Also, we hadn't been to Labadee or St. Kitts. We stayed at the Hyatt Place for one night before the cruise. Super easy and fast check ... Read more

This was our first Royal Caribbean cruise (Navigator of the Seas) after numerous cruises on Carnival and Princess. Our last cruise was five years ago. Embarkation was pretty painless; lines moved quickly. Overall: The ship just was ... Read more

As a Diamond member with RC, I was expecting a fantastic cruise as I have usually had. This cruise was far from being up to par on RC's side. Embarkation was a total disappointment. Diamond and Plus members were always offered a ... Read more

I liked that there were lots of beach chairs on deck. Checking out towels each day was a pain. And people did save chairs even though they weren't supposed to. The captain was super hard to understand and didn't really keep us updated. The ... Read more

A warning before you start: My reviews are long. This one may be longer than most because it was an 8-day, port intensive itinerary. I divided it into sections to help the reader find the information they need a little faster. ... Read more

What made this cruise memorable was the group of family and friends we were with. And the Bon Jovi cover band. Other than that, the ship itself was below average on what we expect from cruising with Royal. Our stateroom attendant was ... Read more

Great cruise for a family with many ages of kids for over Spring Break. Ship was clean, most workers friendly, and many activities to chose from. I was surprised at how the ship did NOT feel crowded in comparison to last year's cruise on ... Read more

This was our first time cruising on Royal Caribbean. The staff did a great job and we really enjoyed the shows (especially Ice Dancing and Sound Collage). The Windjammer, which is the ongoing buffet was good for breakfast and lunch ... Read more

The itinerary, was a little unique, the ability to do an 8 day cruise, as opposed to a 'normally offered' 7 day cruise. I was interested in sailing with the Navigator, as I had sailed on this ship within the past 8 years. It 'supposedly' ... Read more
