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 ...

Just Off the Navigator of the Seas, Oct. 4 to Oct. 11, Western Caribbean

First off, may I begin by noting that we have sailed many of RCCL's ships over the years, both domestically and internationally. That said, I cannot ignore the gradual decline in both service and quality of food ...

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 ...

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 ...

Fun Time On the Old Ship

Embarkation: The Port of Galveston is not the most friendly locale from which to cruise. Parking lots are located a distance from the cruise terminals. Cruisers must take a shuttle from the parking lots to the ...

Cruise from Galveston

First, like I usually do, I book a motel a day before the cruise (just to insure no timing problems). So I booked this cruise from Galveston and then a motel there. Then air from San Diego to Houston, and thinking I ...

Disappointed in Royal Caribbean cruise

I have cruised 3 times with Royal Caribbean and was really looking forward to a wonderful experience. We have cruised with Carnival and Princess several times and thought maybe this would be equal. But it was not. ...

Handicapped cruisers treated well

The Navigator worked well for my wife and I. We arrived early at the main entrance of the terminal and were provided two wheelchairs as soon as debarkation from the previous cruise was complete. Check-in and ...

Not Great

RCCL is cutting corners everywhere they can. I guess it is so they can pay for their new mega ships. The entertainment was not up to par compared to other of the 19 cruises we have been on. The food service was not ...
