Ship looks great inside with the refurbish. they spent millions of dollars to upgrade this. However the food in the buffet was a 7.99 type of buffet. i have been on many Cruises including royal , i cruise 2-3 times a year. I noticed less variety as well as lower quality. (cheap Chinese buffet desserts, no cake pies ect) the main dinning room was ok some nights however overall i found the food ...

I think the main issue I had with our cruise was the order we went on cruise ships. We went on allure and oasis then went on the navigator. If we went on the navigator first, we wouldn't have been disappointed. Lets start with the Good: Boarding was fast. Sit down dinning was awesome. Service in the dinning was tremendous. Room was clean and exactly what we expected. 1 really good dual ...

Not So Royal Customer Service

Being in hospitality myself, it requires foundational customer service skills that are not reflected in Royal Caribbean's core values. I booked this cruise with two best friends to celebrate our 30th birthday. Although it seemed hopeful, the booking process was relentlessly stressful and needless to say we will probably not be booking again. Our sales rep was helpful up until he made the sale. ...

Dining was great. We have always cruised Carnival and decided to try Royal Caribbean. The ship was nice and easy to navigate. Service in dining area was great, but that's where it stops. I cruised with 10 guessed of mine and we like to hang out poolside in evenings, however they pretty much roll in the entertainment at dark. All bars close early outside, big screen TV on deck rarely plays, ...

First i want to stat this by saying that certain people on the Navigator of the Seas went over and above in their efforts to not only make sure we had a great vacation but that everyone else that they served did as well. First shout out to Cat in the Solarium bar. He knew my name and my wife's name and what we drank every time one of us walked up. Second shout out to Ella and her team ...

Ok, not our first cruise. Have cruised Norwegian, Carnival and Royal. We choose Royal because our last cruise was great as far as the ship was concerned. Hats off to Cat at the Solarium who always knew our name and drink, even when changing venues at night..he can save the night!. Ella and team at R Bar..true mixologist and need to make a youtube video. You girls rock! Daniel the Whiskey ...

Galveston wouldn't be my first choice of ports, but it was uneventful (that's a good thing). I was hesitant to believe how good the food was before I took my first cruise. After my first cruise (Carnival Conquest), I was hooked. The food was off the chart good. skip to this cruise... My first Royal Caribbean Cruise (thinking it was a slightly higher end) and my fears were realized. While ...

Overall, our vacation was fun because we were together as a family, but there is definitely room for improvement on this ship (we sailed on the Navigator of the Seas out of Galveston). I want to be objective and not only focus on the negative so here are some positives to start with: Pros - our room steward was exceptional. Erick took very good care of us, was very willing to help, and always ...

Our stateroom attendant was Awesome!!! The dining room food was HORRIBLE. The food in the buffet was good but always cold..... We purchased a photo package and got home and our pictures are not on the disk!!! I have called RCI and NO HELP but to call another company... Nothing like celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary and even the professional photographer didn't have the camera settings ...
