Review of Navigator of Seas Feb. 2015

Our experience was magical. Our only issues concerned disorganization and lack of effective communication with the disembarking procedures. We had a delay docking that day, no big deal. However, when we went to our ...

Repeat trip didn't disappoint.

It was a repeat trip on the ship and itinerary. Being new to this cruise business, we stayed in our comfort zone and did not regret it. The Navigator had been recently re-done, was very clean and sparkling and ...

We were to leave out of Galveston on Sunday October 25th. Because of a tropical storm the captain made the decision to stay in port until Monday morning. It was somewhat disappointing but the weather was horrible ...

Rough Ending, but Wonderful Week

We stayed in a deluxe balcony, which was upgrade over the standard. Very satisfied with the size of unit. Bathroom was large enough and functional. Did use a plastic shoe storage, over the door, for bath and ...

This was the second cruise for me and my husband. We are in our 20's with no kids. We had some rough waters, but I didn't let that affect my overall experience because there's nothing you can do about mother nature. ...

Nice ship, but overall unimpressed

My family was excited to go on the Navigator as it was the largest ship we've ever been on and it had some features we'd never experienced before. The ship itself was nice, and the family oceanview room with ...
