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 ...

RC Navigator of the Seas

1) Royal Caribbean does not allow criticism, just accolades in their web reviews. 2) Royal Caribbean and other cruise lines are now floating retail malls intent on selling you every minute on board. Even in the ...

First timers learn a lesson.

We like cruising. Our room was bigger than expected and the bathroom not surprisingly small but usable. Our room attendant Emmanuel was professional and kept our room very tidy. It was nice to always come back to ...

Our First Trip on the Navigator

This cruise is one with a majority of Texans on it due to the port. We were one of the minority being from the Pacific Northwest (PDX). Because of the makeup of the guests, there was a lot of country western music ...

Seemed to correct dining room service

I was pleased to see that they have returned staffers to the dining room service. An RC cruise we took 3/2014 had marked shortages in the dining room. Overall, I think this is a good value and we enjoyed the ports. ...

Pretty good, but left me thinking we could do better.

I went on this cruise with my husband, and 16 year old daughter. Embarkation: Galveston. Sigh. You would think a Texan port would be designed with a priority towards keeping people relatively cool and ...
