Great cruise! Highly recommend!

So, we've always cruised on Carnival but since the price was the same, we decided to change cruise lines and try another experience. We are a family of 4... wife and I in the 40's, and a 17 yo son with a 16 yo ...

Lots of rain but lots of fun (cabin 1390)

We just got off the Navigator of the Seas. It was a beautiful boat. We have sailed the Freedom of the Seas and the Navigator was a bit smaller. That's not a bad thing, it just means you can get to where you are ...

First Time Cruiser - Honeymoon - Inside Promenade #6297

Just as a quick bit of background about who I am so you understand my perspective. I'm a 27 year old adrenaline junky, foodie who loves sports and performance arts. Despite being what I would describe as a ...

Newly Refurbished Navigator Cruise; Western Caribbean from Galveston

We were on this ship a couple of years ago on a Mediterranean cruise. It was a nice ship then and it is just as nice since the dry dock. Some of the décor has been updated, but the original style of the ship ...

First Timers' In Depth Review/Pointers of Navigator of the Seas

My girlfriend and I had reservations across from the Johnson Space center at the Microtel hotel, some 40mins away from the port. A room there seemed a better cost effective option than anything on the island. So on ...

We had a wonderful time!

I have to say, this was our best cruise ever. I think the main reason we had such a good time is due to planning, eliminating the things we knew we didn't like and slowing down to enjoy ourselves. We were a ...

Wonderful ship and cruise

NOTS is a great cruise ship. We love the open Promenade design. Much more "fun" than other ships where you have to walk through clubs and casinos or walk down cabin hallways to get from end to end of the ship. ...

This was our first cruise. We found everything went smoothly, but could have used some more hand holding along the way. Embarkation went smoothly, but we were aided by being suite guests which put us in a much ...

Great Vacation

We sailed out of Galveston on March 1, 2015. Checking in at the port was very quick and simple. We were on deck 10, so we were asked to show up between 11:30 and 12:00 for check in, which we did. We were through ...
