Embarkation: While the embarkation process was speedy and efficient, Port Canaveral does not do justice to the ships that sail from there. At least terminal 28, is a warehouse. The Port of Miami is much better looking. In the end what matters is the process, and it was just great.
Food: The food was alright. It was exactly the same menu as our last cruise in October aboard the Majesty of the Seas. The assortment at the Windjammer was good, and at times better then the food at the main dinning room. However both where satisfying. Just don't expect expensive restaurant quality food because that will not happen.
Specialty restaurants: Now here is AMAZING dinning. The service and food was excellent at Portofino's. Our friends ate at Chop's Grille and they also said it was amazing. There is a $20 - $25 charge per person, but it is absolutely worth it.
Service: The food and beverage service was excellent. We had my time dinning and were sat at different tables, every time we had great service. At The Dungeon, the night club, the beverage service was outstanding. One of the servers knew our drink every night and was always at hand.
Entertainment: The parades on the Royal Promenade are fun. The ice show was also good and lasted for about an hour. At the main theater, the dancers did a great job, and they even have a live band.
Stateroom: We had an interior on deck 8. It was specious for an inside cabin, suited us just fine.
Bars: The English pud "Two Poets" is good for a before or after dinner drink and smoke, if you smoke. The "Vintages" wine bar is great for a glass of wine. They serve free tapas with your glass of wine from 5pm to 1pm.
Tip: Don't be afraid to meet people. We met a group of guys at the Dungeon, the club, and it made our vacation. We drank, danced, talked and are planning future vacations together. All from different walks of life and countries.
Overall a great ship with friendly service.
I am glad we are booked to go on the Navigator again for a Mediterranean cruise in June 2011.
