After experimenting with a few other cruise lines, it is good to be back on a good ship. Embarkation was quick around 1:30. We went on the ship and got a snack. The cabin steward was attentive, friendly and learned our names. The Navigator of the Seas is a very beautiful ship with this 5 story sculpture at the end of the Promenade. We went to the dining room as we prefer that to the buffet as food is paced out in a civilized manner. And there the attentive wait staff learned our names and kept prompting us for any needs we may have. The food was good and hot. Activities were fun as we like the trivia games, A shout out to Carolyn and Dick who were a lot of fun. We always meet the nicest people playing trivia. The entertainment in the theater was great as well as the ice shoe. One night we did the Chops Steakhouse, a extra charge for this restaurant, but it was fantastic. Really good service and great steaks. The 4 cheese onion soup was a meal itself. We had to take our desserts to go. Anyway is was sad to leave.
