There so many problems (see below) with our first cabin they had to move us on day 4.
Navigator is "Voyager" class so based upon experience we expected quality. However, this was a ship BADLY in need of maintenance time in dry dock, it was last refurbished in 2014 and was in poor condition.
* A/C worked poorly in both cabins (we had to be moved after 4 days) due to balcony doors leaking
* Toilet overflowed filling the floor with water, leaking onto the cabin carpet
* Toilet stopped flushing (caused us to demand another cabin)
* Balcony paint in poor condition, rust showing
* Bed was very hard, blanket rolled up under sagging section to prevent sagging
* Hair dryer not working
* Carpet moldy smell due to toilet overflow
* Hallway carpet outside cabin moldy smell due to bathroom leak Read entire member review >>
Our Cabin was great, easy access to the elevator and not bothered by noise of the use. Our cabin steward Noel, was friendly and took great care of us. The beds were comfortable and we of course enjoyed sitting on the balcony with beautiful sunsets and sunrises. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was spacious and very well maintained. We did wonder why our kettle disappeared after Day 3. We would have used it daily.
We were unable to have the use of bath robes as Ship had run out of them! Read entire member review >>
Had a D1 balcony stateroom, 8656. A little larger, but there was no table in the room. Bed was hard as a rock, though our cabin steward Kevin added a couple of duvet covers which helped a little. Worst mattress ever. There was a definite sewage smell in the hallway during the first half of the cruise. Read entire member review >>
Lots of room in the cabin and good location on the ship ... up three to poolside ... down three to dining room (my time dining) / boardwalk. No table made it seem so much more spacious and more useable! Full couch; comfortable! Bed was pretty good, but pillows worn out. There was an odd smell in the stateroom ... not sewage, but noticeable. Read entire member review >>
The Navigator is old but beautiful. There was some rusting here and there around the ship as well as on the balcony of our room. The couch in the room was already showing some wear (so soon after renovation?); however everything was very very clean including the bathroom. The beds were CRAZY HARD! Our Cabin Attendant Maritza made life a lot better by adding several blankets to the mattress. Read entire member review >>
The cabin- deck 9 #9356. Location was okay ( didn't want to be too close to stairs/elevators) no noise from above but of course you can hear everyone's door slam.
I did not like that there was no aft elevator access on this floor -you had to go to mid-ship. Sadly, the toilet had a strong urine/sewer odor the entire cruise. Our cabin guy was great and tried to spray some stuff in there but I think it's the positioning of the cabin/toilet system so I would not recommend this room. The balcony was fine. I do wish RC would allow family of 4 to get more pullman options which my 9 year old prefers but they make us go in the double sofa beds. Cabin had plenty of storage under the bed and in the closet but only 2 outlets, none in the bathroom. Read entire member review >>
Our rooms were together so they opened the doors between our balconies so that we could all be together.
The cabin was as expected. Compact but functional. About the same as all cabins.
It was showing some wear, but clean. Read entire member review >>
Nice room with reasonable space. Two full sized beds together to make a king and a coach that turned into a Queen. 2 adults in the king and the 2 kids (12 boy,15 girl) in the coach bed. Room steward did a real nice job of making the coach bed into two separate beds with separate sheets and covers. The kids really appreciated it. Bed were comfortable and we enjoyed being up on the 9th floor near the back of the ship close to the dining and sports deck. Read entire member review >>
I booked the illusion cabin 1390. There are no pictures of it but I will be posting some. The balcony is HUGE. I love this room and I will book it again. It is approx 15feet long by 13feet wide. There are two loungers a table and two regular chairs and another table and still have a bunch of space left. Read entire member review >>
Smaller balcony than I'm used to but the room was nice. Forward port side. Close to elevators which was nice. Good cabin steward named Dewa. Wished for more storage but we managed. Read entire member review >>
Because this was my first cruise, I can not compare it with other cruise lines but the check in process was quick, fast and as soon as we arrived in our room we were greeted with incredible views from our balcony. The size of the room was more than adequate as we booked (D1) Superior balcony room on the 9th deck. A balcony room is a must for us and my morning coffee. The overall room had good size and plenty of storage space. Balcony was fine for 2 adults to sit relax, eat or enjoy the sceenry. It was quite, clean and comfortable. We had a couch and our bed was near the window. Our only complaint was our bed was very hard and we are not used to a hard bed. Read entire member review >>
The overall room had good size and plenty of storage space. Balcony was fine for 2 adults to sit relax, eat or read. However this room is noisy. every morning between 2-3 AM there was movement of stuff on the deck above. More annoying than that is a liquid reservoir tank located under the room. (I suspect that it is the storage tank for the pool water when emptied) This liquid sloshed around and made a lot of noise. DO NOT get this room if you are a light sleeper.

Our cabin turned out to be a much better location than I expected. Even in rough seas we did not feel too much rocking (which was why we selected deck 6 over deck 10), but most importantly - I found the location quiet of ship noise (except we did hear the adjoining cabin thru the adjoining door - could even feel the wind when they had their balcony door open!) and very conveniently located to dinner, promenade, kids club, wind jammer etc. It was rarely too far to take the stairs if the elevator was overly busy. The room was in decent shape - several drawers were misaligned but most other things worked fine. We had to clean the closet cubbies with a wipe as they were really dusty, but they should have been great for the person checking in this week! Read entire member review >>
20% obstructed view but did not really notice any bad obstruction. We had the large platform outside the stateroom balcony which would of been nice to be able to walk out on but I guess it would interfere with privacy of the balconies. Room was a little small but we had plenty of room. The addition of two lounge chairs along with the table and two chairs was fantastic. We actually used the balcony a lot!

We had a balcony room and it was very very nice. Our family was in the next room and while our rooms didn't have an adjoining door, we were able to open the divider on the balcony. Read entire member review >>
Plenty of storage, very quiet, close to forward elevator, outstanding cabin steward (Jose Zuniga), very little ship movement in spite of pretty high seas in several vicious thunderstorms, big balcony, overall excellent Read entire member review >>
Nice size cabin. Large couch. Bed near the window. Cabin in good shape, lots of storage. The only way you can detect the age of the ship is the rust spots and dings on the balcony and the balcony sliding door that needs some repair to work a little smoother. Near elevator and no noise. Only noise is your neighbors flushing toilet. Read entire member review >>
I reserved an aft balcony cabin, Deck 10, cabin 1692. We explored the ship until 1 PM when the cabins were ready and our bags were waiting at our door. Our cabin was very spacious with plenty of closet, drawer and cabinet space. The balcony was well worth the extra money. It fit two lounge chairs plus two balcony chairs and a small table with enough room to walk around. Many breakfasts and early evenings were spent relaxing watching the wake of the ship. We never heard a sound from the Windjammer on the deck above and the reputed movement in the aft felt more like a fluid train movement than the rise and fall of a boat. Our steward, Elroy, was good. Our room was always well kept and we rarely saw him, when we had a special request he saw to it. Read entire member review >>
There were 3 of us n our balcony cabin and the sofa bed was opened each night for us by Jimmy and closed each am My sister found it a little uncomfortable the first night but Jimmy padded it somehow and we did not hear any more complaints he also relocated our coffee table onto the balcony which gave us more room and allow us to put our desk chair on balcony for seating for breakfast and sunsets by all 3 of us on the balcony. The room was small for 3 women especially the closet but larger than I have had on other ships. Shower had could pressure and other beds very comfortable Read entire member review >>
Cabin 8548 was very spacious with a full sized sofa and coffee table. Lots of drawers and closet space. Nice balcony but not huge. Nice bathroom with a shower that had doors. This cabin was forward by the elevators. Most of the action happens in the back of the ship, so it was a long walk. The cabin was a little noisy because it was close to the open atrium.

We were in cabin 1534 located on deck ten, forward. It was a great location near the forward elevator and just a few doors down. It was quite, clean and comfortable. Our room steward, Claudio, was amazing! Read entire member review >>
8658 - Our stateroom, 8th floor with balcony was larger than what we have had in the past, with a larger than usual size bathroom, with a user friendly shower cubicle and not shower curtains. sink and plenty of mirrors and storage space. No shampoo and conditioner,now comes mixed together. 2 small bars of cheap smelling soap are supplied on the first day, one more five days later-- no more. The room itself boasts more than ample cupboard, storage space and endless mirrors, What can I say, large double bed, sofa bed, mini-fridge, vanity table, lights, mirrors; only thing lacking is a small kettle with cups for early coffee in bed, but as I never leave home without my kettle and coffee --no problem.No glasses supplied for the mini bar.

Great balcony room, good size as it was located in the widest part of ship. Thermostat wasn't working, room very cold despite complaining. Furnishings need updating as its 10 years old and showing. Neighbors smoking on balcony blew into my room. I was close to elevators and dining room which was nice and the hallways were quiet. Read entire member review >>
Great location ... near the elevators, yet not next to it. The balcony was a welcomed sight for many sunsets. The room was spacious with more than adequate closet space and shelves for clothes. There were also clothes drawers for your use. The safe was easy and convenient. The bathroom was plenty big with enough storage space for all your toiletries. The bed was comfortable and large with a sofa bed available for reading and watching television. The vanity area provided much needed desk space as well. Read entire member review >>
Good overall location on Library floor-quiet!!!
Cabin door directly opposite a staff entrance door-would consider a cabin on either side of this one to be a slight improvement but the door was really not a big deal. Next time on a Voyager Class ship we will book a cabin that ends in "350".
Liked the Starboard side for this sailing because the itinerary was West to East-we were on the sunny side of the ship most of the time. Read entire member review >>
6618 is on the hump providing a good view from the balcony. Port side in Grand Cayman and ocean view in Ocho Rios and Coco Cay. The cabin is accross from the Crown and Anchor desk and posed no noise or traffic problems. Read entire member review >>
Plenty of closet space for two people
Great balcony view.
TV is old but interactive capabilities were nice.
Big mirror w/desk
Couch & table were nice.
Fairly close to stairs but directly below Windjammer and Dining Rooms so that was nice
Very close to library and one floor below Internet Lounge Read entire member review >>
The cabin was big enough for 3. We had two single beds and one pull down bunk bed. The bathroom was small and there were no complimentary toiletries. We had a balcony to give us a little extra room. The suitcases fitted under the beds which gave us extra floor space and we had a good size wardrobe with plenty of hangers. The stateroom was quiet and was kept very clean by our cabin stewardess who was very friendly and helpful. Read entire member review >>
6592. A bit smaller than others on floor, but very quiet. Port side midship. Near Centrum elevator, but far enough down to be quiet. Plenty of storage. Be sure to put suitcases under bed. Read entire member review >>
We had cabin 7650 deck seven on Royal Caribbean's Navigator of the Seas. It was a balcony cabin. 40 square foot balcony lots of room. We had four in the room never felt crowded. The only bummer was the sofa bed that my sons slept in. Wish we would have had two pull down beds because navigating to the path to the bathroom at night was a bit of a pain. The bed was big enough for my two 18,21 year old sons but took up a lot of space. The bathroom was good did not think the amenties were as good on RC as on Carnival but all in all it was a good value. Closet space was awesome here. Read entire member review >>
