Navigator Just TOO Big
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Rome (Civitavecchia)
I have always wanted to visit Athens and Kusadesi, but my husband has no interest in holidaying, so when I was invited by friends to join them on this cruise, I jumped at the chance. I nearly gave up when I couldn't find a reasonable price, but eventually I got a very good deal from an Internet agency. I parted with my credit card details, got the cruise and transfers booked, and felt very pleased with myself. I booked the air fare myself, and ended up with a stateroom, sole occupancy, for the same rate as my friends who were sharing! When we arrived at Rome airport, there was no way were Royal Caribbean personnel allowing us NOT to get to the ship. Everything was laid on, but I had no transfer documentation. Eventually my name was found and I was en-route to the ship!! I looked in awe at the size of the ship. It towered over everything! I had never seen anything quite so big.
It took about 15 minutes of slow walking before I was called to the desk, and More there a very pleasant young man took my details, forms etc. and issued me with my Sail Pass. Then it was onto the quayside and boarding. While I was trying to get my transfer sorted out, my friends got ushered onto a bus, so I was on my own. I dropped my hand luggage in my stateroom and spent nearly 3 hours traversing the ship in the hope of finding my friends. Eventually we all bumped into each other.I found places on the ship that I could never find again. But I did find nice quiet places where I could enjoy the ocean and read or sleep!! Less

Cabin review: PR Promenade Stateroom
my cabin was sole occupancy and as such was very comfortable, plenty of everything. I would imagine that for two people it would be a bit tight. My friends' cabin which was an inside, was VERY small and completely inadequate for two people. There was absolutely no noise either from the hallway or the promenade. On my next cruise, I will definitely go for a balcony cabin, and it must be sole occupancy.Read All Promenade Stateroom (PR) Reviews >>
