Back to Back out of Galveston

Sail Date: February 2014
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Galveston

There was fog again in Galveston going out but that can be expected this time of year but on the turnaround and on the return, we were lucky and had no problems.

The ship has been nicely re-done however there were some areas of the ship that did not appear to have been touched. The Schooner Bar, for instance, had chairs with torn upholstery and woodwork around the tables that needed some TLC. The Promenade looked all new and shiny, the Dining Room had all new chairs, signage. New Specialty Restaurants, Sabor (Excellent), Giovanni's Table (Average), Izumi (Good). Chops changed their format to a less formal presentation (no table cloths and pared down menu + upcharge for "premium products"), food still good quality and service good. Some of the clubs were re-done with new furniture, carpet and everything felt new. New carpet throughout and the ship felt like new.

New Diamond Club was nice but always crowded, Flowrider was cool, the Cosmopolitan Club was nice but really More just a smaller version of the Viking Crown.

Crew has an excellent attitude except for a few "humbugs", but that is expected. The Ice Show was excellent, Phil Anderson, top notch, and The Bubba Feathers Band were most entertaining as well. All in all a very enjoyable 2 weeks. Less

Cabin review: Navigator of the Seas 1260

Mostly redone with new mattresses and carpet however the furniture was not replaced and needed some repair as well as drawers opening and closing.
