This was our first experience with Royal Caribbean and it will be our last. We spoke with other passengers who were die hard "Royal" fans and they said that if this had been their first experience, they wouldn't be back. The cabin stewards and dining wait staff were wonderful. We really liked the "My time dining" option. The on-board activities were few, the mistakes on the "compass" were many. Curfew is not an activity! This was our first transatlantic crossing so we thought there would be many activities to choose from - based on our experiences on other cruises. This wasn't the case. The nightly entertainment was good, but overall, we found the activities and choices underwhelming. The "library" was picked clean within the first couple of hours. I went shortly after boarding and saw someone leaving with a tower of books! Really? Are you going to read 8 books at once?! The food was alright, nothing to write home about and the portions were small. Something we weren't expecting was the lack of facilities after 9pm. The windjammer closed, so your only option for tea/coffee was the small cafe located on the Promenade. This filled up quickly and there wasn't really another convenient area that you could meet up with ppl and chat - it seemed to us that they were trying to channel ppl into drinking establishments. Speaking of upselling - it was annoying! At almost every meal, we were interrupted by someone trying to upsell their fee restaurants. I found the lack of food choices disappointing and unclear. Basically, your only choice for food is the windjammer/dining room. Breakfasts were good, the lunches were edible but varied little, for dinner, we ate in the dining room. The meals were good but we found the portions much smaller than other lines we have cruised with. There also seemed to be some major issues with getting back on the ship after ports of call. At one port, we were waiting for well over an hour. I saw someone asking if handicapped ppl could go ahead and they were denied. So ppl with walkers and various disabilities were left standing in the sun. When we finally got back on board we were told that it was the fault of the port authority. Hmm, so you knew there was an issue and yet, no water was offered, no intervention of any kind? We would definitely take another transatlantic cruise. We met some wonderful ppl, and it's a much easier way to travel to Europe if you have the time, just not on this line. Read Less

I must commend the people who designed and built the boat... Bravo it is a beautiful boat. We were recently on a Transatlantic repositioning cruise. The operation of the cruise and the organizational weakness of the management was obvious through the cruise. The cruise director was enormously disorganized, regularly provided incorrect information and conducted the disembarkation for shore excursions in a terrible manner. Absolutely everyone was pissed. The line at the guest services desk was extremely long 24-7 with people lodging complaints and rarely more than one or two staff, always scowling. . If you want to see a short or no line go to the location where you sign up for your next cruise. Well staffed, happy people, but no line. They upsell you on 13 days of WI-FI, but when you get to sea, they tell you that because of the size of the ocean, there is no or weak WI-FI... what a scam... Again if you want to get a stronger signal, go sit in the location where you sign up for the next cruise. Their signal is great. Lovely boat, moderately good food, poorly prepared staff. Read Less

We booked this trip mainly on the blowout price. $500 for a 13 night cruise in a decent cabin cant be beat. This was our first time with RCCL but we are seasoned cruisers having sailed with 5 other companies. This was out first and likely our last with RCCL. I got an incredible deal but If I had paid more I would have been disappointed. The good: Embarkation was very well organized The rooms were great, the beds, the size, the way they are organized. It all seemed very well thought out and as good as any line or room we have had. Many (but not all) of the staff were also very good. The main dining staff were professional and attentive. Most of the staff in the windjammer were also good. The spa staff were excellent. The ballroom themed show was excellent and the ice dancing show spectacular. These two shows were REALLY REALLY good. The orchestra was great and the cafe singers and guitar players were superb. The live violin and piano music in the dining room really added to the experience. The flowrider was fun and very easy to get time on. The gym was clean, well equipped, and always had space. The drinks were well made. The parade/carnival was fun. Medicore: The food, at best, was mediocre. Very bland and inoffensive, like a Cracker Barrel at sea. Far behind ANY other cruise line we have sailed. Our group lost weight on this 13 day cruise! The exceptions being the Indian and Asian foods offered which were edible to good. The juggler and Magician were decent enough. (I didnt catch the hypnotist so cant judge him) Cabin steward was good but lacked personality. The disco on the promenade could have been more interactive. Bad: The entertainment not mentioned above was awful. Like off-strip Vegas 25 years ago. Cruise director felt like a used car salesman and had no rapport or interaction with guests. Constant up-selling of Izumi and Sabor. I got approached 6 times for Izumi and 3 times for Sabor and was given the hard sell each time. It felt like a time share sales presentation and they often interrupted conversations and meals to sell to you. I was going to try them before the sales pitch but decided against it out of spite after the hard sell. By day 5 I just started to be rude and send them away once I saw them coming. Really disorganized ports, 1.5 hours to get on ship in Azores, problems at other ports. Cruise director admitting "he knows nothing about these ports"; well do some research! 24 hour cafe promenade is a joke. It is tiny and has only 2 options for food; Pizza or a Sandwich. Terrible pizza and sandwiches that are 4 inches of bread with 1 thinly sliced piece of meat and a limp piece of lettuce (literally). If you wanted a sandwich that didn't taste purely of bread you had to get 5 sandwiches, take them apart to make 1 decent sandwich. So much bread waste as everyone was doing this. Many other cruise lines do made to order sandwiches, why cant RCCL? It would save them money and waste. Better year ditch the cafe promenade and leave a section of Windjammer open past 9:30 pm! Windjammer (buffet area) closed and locked at many times people wanted to use it (after lunch, after 9:30). Heck at least let people sit in there, you don't have to serve food (although it would be nice to leave a small section open until at least midnight). There were not enough places to play cards and the windjammer and all its oceanview tables was locked up tight. Read Less

I have 25 sailings with Royal Caribbean, four are on the Navigator all of our sailings on her have been wonderful. Unfortunately our Transatlantic cruise was not up to their normal high standards. The odd things that happened on this cruise are not normal at all. I do have a few disappointments as well as high points to share. The guests on board were seasoned travelers, we notice every little thing. The average age was 65+. EMBARKATION - The line for the Priority boarding for Diamond and above was extremely long. The person inside the door at the terminal directed us to the shortest line for general boarding. It was a quick easy process. LIFE BOAT DRILL - The life boat drill was held later than usual. This created a problem in the dining room. Some muster stations are in the dining room. The life boat drill was not totally completed in time for the passengers with the 5:30 dining to enter the dining room. We were trying to leave as they were trying to enter. The poor waiters were trying to move everyone along. DIAMOND LOUNGE - The Star Lounge which they used for the Diamond Evening events had many broken chairs. Even by moving the large number of Diamond members to a huge facility, finding seats was challenging at times. On the positive side, there were two areas where you could get hot and cold snacks. They kept them well stocked. The waiters were always available to get you a beverage. Most of them remembered exactly what you drank. The regular Diamond lounge is always open. They still served their continental breakfast with Salmon, and had warm cookies in the afternoon. It is also a nice quiet place to go and sit. GUEST SERVICES - I never found any long lines or wait times at Guest Services, I went there on several occasions and quickly had my questions answered to my satisfaction. All the agents were pleasant. As usual there were long lines on day one and on the last day. MEDICAL FACILITY - I needed a medical issue taken care of and went to the medical facility. The particular insurance I purchased pays the facility up front. The guest should never receive a bill. This is one of the reasons I choose this company. It is not the insurance sold through the cruise line. I went to the medical office and showed them my insurance card. They didn’t look at the card and said it would be on my onboard account. My bill was less than $100 so it was not a budget breaker. I cannot imagine the immediate out of pocket cost of a major illness or accident on board. MISCOMMUNICATION - There were typo errors and incorrect information in the Daily Cruise Compass. That publication comes from the home office in Miami, therefore, the crew on board has no control over what they receive. They had to deal with what they got, just as we did. In my 25 cruises with Royal Caribbean I have never run across this issue. When the cruise director read the compass at his morning TV show you could see that he was taken aback by when he read daily events from the Cruise Compass. He was able to make verbal corrections on the spot. He tried to play it off, many people saw this action as uncaring. It is too bad passengers viewed it that way. It was not his intent, he was trying to make the best out of an uncomfortable situation. DAILY ACTIVITIES - There were many different types of activities to keep us busy through the entire trip. The activities were varied and offered something for everyone. DINING ROOM - I did not see shrimp cocktail on the menu any evening. I found out later, from another passenger, they do have it available if YOU ASK for it. The meals were ok, but not spectacular. The wait staff did an excellent job. IMMIGRATION - In order to speed up the disembarkation process in Southampton, immigration agents came on board during an at sea day to check our passports. Immigration did not send enough agents to smoothly and quickly do this process. The passengers did not help this situation either. We were all given times to show up for this process. Many thought why not go early. Well that action delayed everyone. Again not Royal Caribbean's fault. The immigration officials office determines how many agents they need to send out. There should have been more agents and passengers should have stuck to their assigned time to get in line. The cruise line did the best they could in this inconvenient situation. SPA - I have never treated myself to a massage on a cruise. I was pleasantly surprised, they have many rooms. Everything was professional and clean. The atmosphere was calm and I felt so much better after my treatment. I will do this on every cruise from now on. GYM - I thought with being at sea for so many days the gym would be packed. No it was not. I usually went about 10 AM and I was able to use any of the machines I wanted. ENTERTAINMENT - Many reviews slammed the entertainment. I did not find it much different than the regular twice yearly 7 night cruises we take. It is geared to please various tastes and they can't please everyone every day. SHORE EXCURSIONS - There were two tours offered to Normandy, people who booked one tour were told 2 days in advance it was cancelled due to weather. I find that odd since the other tour went on as scheduled. The weather was beautiful that day. This is a 10 hour tour and I do believe they should have some sort of provision for food. PONTA DELGADA WAIT- Unfortunately the port of Ponta Delgada did not have enough security agents. Due to short staffing and a small security area the wait to get back on board was 45 min to an hour. Royal Caribbean cannot be faulted for this. It is the Azores Port Authority who staffs the security. The blame lies on them for this. WINE TASTING TOURS - We took 3 tours which included wine tasting at the end of the regular tour. I do not recommend doing this. It is not what we think of as a wine tasting. All three places gave you a bit less than 2 oz of ONE wine. That was it. One place offered many cheeses, one offered some canapés and a sweet item, one offered only crackers. They are not worth the additional cost. Take the tour that is the same but does not include the wine tasting that is good by itself. ANOTHER SLOW EMBARKATION - At one port we had to wait for the gangway to be moved to a different level on the ship. This is due to the normal ebb and flow of the tides. It was an inconvenience but not Royal Caribbean's fault. They do not have control over the tides. They moved the gangway as swiftly and safely as they could. Yes, this caused lines, but there was no other option. We were at the mercy of the seas. HANDICAP ACCESSIBLE TOUR CANCELLED - At one port there was a tour geared to those with mobility issues. It was the only tour that was handicap accessible. They cancelled that tour due to only 4 people signing up. That is a shame and slap in the face to the disabled. PHOTOS - They are doing the purchasing of your photos differently. They now, after your order them on the computer kiosk, deliver them to your room. This did not work out so well. Many people did not get their photos and had to have the charges removed from their account. If you wanted to purchase a photo on the last night, there was no way they could get the photo to you before we docked. They were only open from 9-11PM the last day. You could pay and down load the photo to your electronic device. That would have incurred additional fees for WiFi, then the cost to have it printed when you got home. We wanted a PRIVATE BLACK AND WHITE photo taken in celebration of our 50th wedding anniversary. We tried to contact that photographer the entire 13 days on the ship. We went to the photo studio area and made the request every couple of days. They wrote down our name and said the photographer would contact us. That never happened. HELPFUL TIPS - There are 3 formal nights. You will move your clock ahead 1 hour at NOON 4 days in a row. From the Azores to Lisbon you move 1 hour ahead at midnight. From LeHarve to Southampton you move the clock back 1 hour at midnight. Changing the clock at noon was very strange. It is well worth taking the cruise line transfer from Southampton to Heathrow. It has two routes, one stops at Stonehenge and the other at Windsor Castle. LEAVING THE SHIP AT AN ALTERNATE PORT - I was curious if this could be done. I received many different answers. I know the answer now. Several couples left the ship in LeHarve and traveled on their own to other European destinations. You have to make special arrangements through the Cruise Line to do this. CRUISE DIRECTOR Jeff has been with Royal Caribbean for 25 years. Many passengers had issue with him. He has a very demanding job; he needs to be all things to all people, both passengers and staff. Imagine having lines of upset passengers and trying to solve all of their problems. Many issues were caused by outside sources not Royal Caribbean itself. With all of the glitches with this cruise this had to be one of the hardest ones he worked. Give him a break, put yourself in his shoes. Read Less

Overall the cruise was great. The ship is dated but is a beautiful ship. Embarkation on first day was great. No issues at all. Food on ship was good. The buffet closed at 9pm which really wasn't good. If you have a late show, by the time you get out of the show, the buffet is closed which doesn't make any sense to me. They also didn't open up the whole Windjammer most of the time which was crazy. The only place to get a snack was on the promenade deck and it was limited as to what you could get. Couldn't make your own toast, so the toast they made was as hard as a rock cause it was probably sitting there. They should have had someone at the toaster making toast as people asked for it. Our dining room experience was good. The only thing I didn't like was that we had a table of 14 (oblong table) which I think is too big. We could never converse with the others at the other end of the table as it was too big. We have always had a table of 8 or 10 (round table) which was great. We have done 6 TAs and always enjoyed meeting the officers and the Captain always had a hour long q and a time at the coffee place. On this cruise, we never seen an officer (only at the Captain night). Not the most friendly officers. Excursions at the Ports - Getting off the ship was a nightmare and even worse getting back on from the ports. I have never seen such a dis organized group of people in my life. It took forever to get off the ship and the line ups to get back on the ship were worse. They really have to work on this. I think that it turned a lot of people off..It did us. Television was really bad in the rooms. They repeated the same shows day in and day out. I know this may sound trivial but on other ships they had great shows on the tv and never repeats. Our dining staff and housekeeping staff were great. I did notice that they have cut back on staff and staff were working a lot. All in all it was a great TA but there could be improvements. We are not loyal to any one shipping line but Royal Caribbean will not be top on our list. They have a lot to work on. Read Less

This was my 5th Transatlantic. Transatlantic cruises are my husband & my favorite cruise. This was our 25 Royal Caribbean cruise but our first on Navigator of the Seas. We have been loyalist to RCCL..25 cruises on RCCL, 1 on Celebrity. We flew down the evening before and stayed at a Quality Inn with cruise port shuttle. Hotel was fair but shuttle was full and had no openings till 2pm, so we had to get cab ($20). We would not stay at this hotel again. Check in at pier went smoothly though lines were longer for Crown & Anchor upper tiers than for general boarding. We got right on Navigator and made our way to pool deck. Ship was lovely and clean. Not many crew greeting you when you boarded. Windjammer buffet opened (only 1side) at 11:30. It was crowded and food was okay. Not a great selection. Crew in Windjammer was welcoming and helpful. The girl greeting you was wonderful and continued to be every day. She greeted everyone with a giant smile, warm hello and "washy,washy". Sometimes she had fairy wings, a princess crown, she just loved her job and the passengers. Got in room at 1pm. Inside cabin on deck 7. Was what we expected. Plenty of storage, very clean. There was a hole on the cushion of the love seat. Our cabin steward Mike was friendly, efficient and very helpful. We asked for ice and it was there every morning & evening. He made great towel animals...just wish they were more often. The location was good and room was quiet (7355) The menu was mediocre. It was first time we went to specialty restaurant based on not liking any item on menu. While the dining menu left much to be desired, our servers were great. Emily & Susan were fun, warm, and made sure we enjoyed our meal. They also went out of their way to say hi if they saw us in main dining room or Windjammer for breakfast or lunch. We NEVER saw our head waiter. Not once even to introduce himself. Shame on him! Specialty restaurants Gianni's and Chops were very good...food delicious and service great. Cruise director was depressing...he seemed to hate being at sea and wanted everyone to feel the same. He never seemed to interact with passengers or staff unless it was staged. NO Lectures except on retirement or if ship was trying to sell something. No special things for all the time at sea. And often cruise compass had wrong times. Was very disappointed in lack of activities or lack of planning (ie Show 8:30, game 8:45, karaoke 9pm). His morning show was depressing and it was only him behind a desk. No birthday, anniversary shout outs, no What's in the box. Activities staff ran the gamut... Billie andJP were friendly, always said hi and were lots of fun. Another girl was mean and nasty. Production shows were good, entertainers (for most part were excellent), ice show was spectacular. Never saw officers. Captain did not attend top tier event (which was a first for us) Excursions offered were great but the organizing of them was horrible. The first port the excursion departures were so disorganized that it created a dangerous situation with people just herded in, hallways, stairs and elevators blocked. Worst experience I ever had on cruise. Also awful was customs on the ship. Cruise director had a schedule, promised it would only take 10 minutes...he was a little off it took 2 days and people were in line for long periods of time. Cruise director spent a lot of time apologizing and thanking everyone for their patience, When we asked why there was such chaos, we were told "we weren't expecting so many of you" or "there are a lot of you". They should have known that, they had a passenger list and a list of who bought excursions. Every port had very long lines getting off and getting back on ship. Very poor planning and very disorganized. Any cruise is better than no cruise BUT Royal Caribbean feel far short of their WOW on this transatlantic The excursions we went on were very good, especially Fatima. It was the disorganization that was so horrible We had the Windsor Castle and airport drop off for disembarking. The meeting place was too small and when we got off to get luggage, many found their luggage not out. After more than 1/2 hour they found missing luggage still on ship and brought it out (5 carts full). Just another example of the disorganization. Read Less

Cruise Critic Roll Call Members: We had over 200 members on the active Roll Call and many volunteers organized daily activities for the big group. This made it one of the most enjoyable crossings we've ever experienced. We made lots of friends, who we hope to cruise with again. Embarkation: We arrived at 11:30 AM and stood in a relatively fast moving line (both outside and inside) for about 45 minutes. The staff was pleasant and helpful. Cabins were ready at 1 PM. Cruise Critics assembled for a Sail Away Party after the Muster Drill. Great fun. Ship: The ship was in good condition for its age and we eventually learned the large layout. We got to like the way the ship is laid out with an indoor promenade. Placement of dining room, show room, lounges and cafe was typical of large ships and better than Carnival. The ship is 15 decks high and rode the open seas very well. We had smooth sailing and very good weather for the crossing. Cabin: Our balcony cabin (#6322) was on the starboard "hump" and therefore slightly larger than others in that category. The location near the rear elevators was perfect. We were one deck above our dining level and near the elevators for a ride to deck 11 for the Windjammer Cafe. The cabin size is typical of ships this size. We used the balcony only a few times. The beds were comfortable. Linens and carpet were clean. On the negative side: The bathroom seemed smaller than other ships we've been on. We had a very slow drain in our sink. The TV was old and the programming was slim. No ice was provided in the cabin. We had plastic SOLO cups for glasses in the bathroom. Our stateroom attendant's name was not provided in our cabin and did not present himself on the first day. Stateroom Attendant: He kept the room clean but visited it only twice per day. He did not make himself know to us for a few days. I ran into him once during the entire cruise. He did provide 4 towels instead of the normal two. But we've had much better service on other cruises. Recommended tip for him. Dining: We found the Windjammer Cafe relatively clean but always crowded. The staff seemed shy but friendly. The breakfast buffet quickly became boring. Pastries were stale. Toasted bagels were like a rock. Had to wait in line for a cup of coffee. The omelet ordering process was tedious. Some food was cold. The eggs were a purveyor's ready mix product with food coloring added and quite watery - not fresh scrambled eggs. Bacon and sausage were OK. Waffles and French Toast were pretty poor products. The Main Dining Rooms (3 decks high) were nicely decorated and clean. Early dining was moved to 5:30 PM. The variety of meals offered were somewhat disappointing. They offered daily standards of Sirloin Steak or Salmon. The Salmon was quite good. The steak was deplorable. 3 at our table had to send it back and order something else. It needs to be removed from the menu. When Lobster & Filet was offered, the lobster was miniscule. We all laughed that a single shrimp would have made a better Surf 'n Turf. Overall the food was barely acceptable and has gone down another notch since last year's TA on the Jewel OTS. Wine was very expensive. A $16 bottle of 10 Year Vine XY Zin sold for $49 onboard including tip. It took 30 minutes to get a cocktail ordered and delivered to the table. They need a dedicated cocktail waitress and a sommelier for the dining rooms. Lunch in the main dining room offered a made-to-order salad. That was excellent. The pasta offerings were not good. Other items for lunch were acceptable. Cafe Promenade offered stale donuts. Johnny Rockets should be closed or made no charge. Alternate Dining: We dined at Portofino's and found it below the level we experienced on Celebrity ships. At $25pp we went there only once. My meal was average. Dining Room Staff: Our waiter and assistant were good, not great. Respectful and friendly. The head waiter interrupted our conversations often. He lost my bottle of wine, mis-marking it for another table who enjoyed it, I'm sure. Our tablemates had to convince him that a full bottle was put aside two days ago after it was opened and only sampled. He finally "bought me" another bottle. Extra tip for the waiter and assistant but much less for the head waiter. Entertainment: The CD was Mike Hunnerup from Australia and he quickly grew on us. He was fun and approachable. The staff, including Richard, the Activities Director, were friendly and helpful. Just one person had an "attitude" we didn't appreciate. The stage entertainment ran the gamut. Some poor, most mediocre and a few memorable. Individual singers tend to be poor. The variety was good however. RCL held a nice Meet & Mingle for us on Day 3. At my suggestion they had a few Bridge Tour door prizes for lucky members. Quest is a big hit and was held on the ice rink. Great adult fun. Ship's Staff: Captain Patrik Dahlgren is probably the best we've encountered on all the ships we've cruised on. He stopped at all the dining room tables for conversation and photos during the cruise. Very engaging. He's an asset to RCL. Enrichment: Did not enjoy Joe Condrill's lectures or Hohn & Donna Mollan's presentations very much. I've see much better on other cruises. We missed Jack Cochrane's (Cruise Critic member) lecture about water on day 7 because of a conflict. Don't believe it was taped either. We were disappointed we missed him. Facilities: The Internet Cafe is too expensive and too slow to use often. Library was average for cruise ships. Fitness facility was very good but no TVs on the equipment. Smoke in some of the lounges and part of the casino is still problematic. Champagne Bar was expensive. The Wine Bar on the promenade was way overpriced. Way too much selling on the floors all day. You ran into tables set up to sell goods and services everywhere. It is quite annoying. Seems that after early dining, your opportunity for after dinner dancing lasts just 30 minutes. No venue existed that played dance music from 7:30-9:00 PM for us. Ports of Call: We were happy to visit Tenerife for the first time. Ship's excursions were too expensive for the full day (5 hr.) tour ($99pp). A Cruise Critic member organized a longer tour on a private basis for just $21pp. We enjoyed it. Mallorca and Ajaccio were somewhat interesting. We prefer the Azores. The printed port information provided by the ship is almost useless. We bring our own maps. Debarkation: Needed luggage tags for an earlier time and had to wait in line at Guest Relations to move up 1 hour earlier. We walked off and found our (damaged) luggage in little time. There was no time to report a claim. The taxis would only take passengers for Rome and not local destinations like Civitavecchia. We took the FREE port bus to the port entrance and then walked to the rail station. Took about an hour. Overall: We notice RCL quality going downhill each year. Both for food quality and service. Cruise rates are stable but onboard charges keep going up. Ours was $950 this trip. Ouch! We may not use RCL again next year. Regards, Florida Rich... Read Less
