Ship Facts: Navigator of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Navigator of the Seas Deck Plans
navigator of the seas, back to back, 12-26 May 2013
Boarding went quickly and smoothly, much more so than last September when we did the same cruise. First week had cabin 3528, second week moved over to 3552. These were the quietest and most stable cabins we have ever had - no noise from the theater or disco, no passing traffic and no balcony doors slamming. With the high winds almost every day, we were far better off than the people in the cabins on the upper decks.

Having done the same cruise on the Navigator last year, same ports, we only got off in the ports to wander around for an hour or two - pleasure to be on board with everyone on shore, a real holiday.

Only complaint - I would like to see a separate section for vegetarians (the layout of the buffet in the Windjammer with its islands is ideally set up for this) - every day I saw passengers using the same tongs for the salads and the meat or fish which is placed alongside. Also, alongside the plain salad you find a pasta and tuna, coleslaw and shrimp, corn and meat salad - again, I saw people cross contaminating the salads with the meat/fish.

One day a dish was labeled vegetarian stir fried noodles - on asking I was told no meat only shrimps in the noodles - totally unacceptable. Food and beverage manager told me they have staff checking that each bowl has its own tongs and they are on duty to make sure no one uses the same tongs for different dishes, but even the cheese is placed alongside the cold meat and people were using the same utensils for both.
