Navigator of the Seas

Sail Date: October 2013
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Rome (Civitavecchia)

This was our second cruise with RC, our first being ten years ago when we cruised the Western Med from Barcelona. This time we opted for inclusive flights, transfers and gratuities. Both the flight to and from Rome and the transfers to and from the ship were like clockwork. A RC rep met us at Rome and instructed us with labels etc and the transfer to the ship took about one hour. The timing was perfect as with less than 30 minutes on board the staterooms were ready for occupancy.

The stateroom during our cruise was kept pristine, with the bed being made twice a day.

The food on board is 5 star. It really cannot be faulted, the variety and quality was exceptional. With a full ship we always found a table in the Windjammer "cafe" for breakfast and lunch. Dinner was served at 8.30 in the Deck 3 dining room where we had a great table and great service.

There are numerous activities available during the days but we opted for the lazy sun bathing mode as the late More October weather was so nice. The ports of call were Sicily, Athens, Kushadasi and Crete. We didnt partake in the excersions, preferring to stroll ashore at our lesiure.

The only complaint from the cruise i had was that smoking is allowed in most of the bars on board. In the "pub" is was quite strange to see people being told smoking at the tables outside was forbidden and you had to go inside to light up.

All in all a top week, helped by the brilliant service from the staff, a good table in the dining room and lovely weather. Less
