Ship Facts: Navigator of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Navigator of the Seas Deck Plans
Navigator of the Seas vacation has plenty to offer

My husband and I sailed last week (may 18th 2014) to celebrate our 20 year anniversary.

The Navigator is a beautiful ship and offers plenty of things to do and decent entertainment.

We had a Grand Suite and enjoyed double sinks and good closet space as well as a nice sitting area and roomy balcony. We enjoyed breakfast delivered a couple of mornings so that we could eat out on the balcony and enjoy the ocean and whatever view was offered.

Not so crazy about our bed as it was too hard. We did not say anything to our cabin steward about this and there may be a solution to the problem for our preference of a less hard bed.

One thing that was different on RCCL this time was the quality of the food. I did notice quite a bit of difference in the Windjammer. Not that the food was bad but that it was not up to the standard we have experienced in the past. We were on the Mariner about one year ago and felt the food was considerably better. This is particularly true of the specialty restaurant, Chops. The restaurant itself is intimate and pleasing. The service is good and servers were knowledgeable and certainly pleasant. But we paid the extra $ willingly last time because the meal in the Chops on the Mariner was over the top good . This time, we were disappointed and certainly agreed we would think twice about spending the extra money again. You want truly special if you are going to leave your pleasant dining room experience where the food is certainly good . On the other hand, our evening at Sabor, was definitely special and was probably the best meal and time we spent on board. Hopefully RCCL will try to bring Chops back to the level it enjoyed before. We never made it to Giovanni's Table but we did eat at Johnny Rockets. It was fun and the food was ok. You can't beat a milkshake and a jukebox.

We are planning another cruise on the Navigator early next year.
