This ship had the best service overall than any other cruise we have been on. From the great room attendant to the fabulous wait staff to the fantastic bartenders in many of the venue bars. The R bar staff was ...

Good Cruise!

We had a great time. Our drive to Galveston from Oklahoma was good except for a 20 minute traffic jam in Dallas and a 10 minute traffic jam in Houston. We booked one night at Moody Gardens Hotel Resort to stay ...

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 ...

Not So Great a Cruise

Our waiter Jasper and Assistant Waiter Jirmansyah were excellent. They made our cruise enjoyable in spite of other falling-short on the cruise. With regards to Entertainment/Shows. Very lame. I have seen better ...

I didn't come for the food!

This was the second RCI ship I have been on since June and the second ship where the food was mediocre at best. Good thing I don't cruise for the food, we cruise for the adventure of new ports and the people we ...

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 ...

Wonderful Destinations

The ship was fun. The only problem we had was one of the showers at the adult pool did not work. We had great food and the staff was wonderful. We sailed to Cozumel, Belize and Roatan. We had a wonderful time at ...

Good and Bad

We arrived in Galveston early used Lighthouse Parking (which we always use) and got on the ship within 30 minutes. The ship is pretty and clean. Our cabin was nice and located in a great area on the ship but it ...

What a Great Family Vacation; An Amazing Must Do Trip!

This was a phenomenal vacation. We traveled with 2 adults and 2 teenagers (17). It's hard to find some place to go where teenagers don't get bored. But they never got bored on this cruise. The entire cruise was ...

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 ...

Loved our Cabin 1838 Deck 12; Everything Else Just OK

Mixed feelings about RCCL. We are age 43 years old and thought we'd try a more "mature cruise". The ship was beautiful, loved our room, balcony view and deck. We felt that the first couple days were really great ...

There's nothing I would change.

I went on this cruise with my husband and three daughters 21,19 and 15. We had a great time. The Port of Galveston does seem a little confusing and a few signs would minimize some of the chaos but we were ...

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 ...
