Felt good to be out again, but some points of concern
"This means that the pre-cruise testing no longer mattered because half the passengers could have been exposed and could have brought the virus back on the ship.For a three day cruise, perhaps not a huge issue, but on a longer multi-stop itinerary, this could be a big issue...."Read More

We are experienced cruisers with lots of RCL cruises under our belts. This cruise was as expected but a couple of things really left us with less than a positive experience. First the sound volume in the entertainment venues was way to loud, over 90+ DB. Making it loud didn’t make it better. Also they tried to get high tech in the dance club and had rapidly moving coloured spots on the dance ...

I am currently on The Navigator of the Seas, its day six of a seven night Mexico cruise. A couple of months ago I did the same itinerary on Holland America’s Koningsdam. See my review here to compare that ship’s review with what follows below. https://www.cruisecritic.com/memberreviews/memberreview.cfm?EntryID=693041 To start with I am not a picky cruise reviewer, life is imperfect and I ...

This is my third cruise on RCCL, my wife's first. I almost canceled the trip when I saw the new dining room menus, but fortunately, this trip used the old menus. The service throughout was excellent and several people earned extra tips from us. Among them were Salim, the headwaiter, and Bertha, our cabin attendant. The "larger" balcony cabin (it was 6 sf larger lol!) was comfortable. ...

A friend wanted to go for New Years Eve and we had an awesome time. Our cruise director Tiago was amazing. The weather was cool on the whole trip except in Puerto Vallarta. Did not spend too much time on deck due to this issue. The Windjammer had a worker who always greeted us with his dance moves, high energy. Our dining waiter and his assistant were so personable. This ship left from ...

Traveling with a big group, this is the shortest cruise I've ever taken. This was my 8th with RCL, and I'd always enjoyed the quality of the overall experience. Some differences this time, though. The quality of the food was slipping -- tater tots served with prime rib, 2 shrimp in the shrimp cocktail, a very bready French onion soup -- but I still appreciated the menu on a cruise that was a ...

After canceling more cruises due to COVID then I've ever been on I was very much looking forward to finally getting on this ship with my family and my neighbors' family. Unfortunately, not all of us would make it, as my son got sick the day before sailing and my wife decided to stay home with him. That was the beginning of a really weird weekend, but the weirdness had nothing to do with the ship ...

Just got off the Navigator today and it was just awesome. We live in the LA area, so it was it super easy to get to the port and get on the ship and have a real vacation without really missing much time from work. The check-in was super easy and fast. We had a delay getting to the port, so I was a little concerned. We got to the port at 2:10 or so, but we were still on the ship by 2:30. All ...

This is our 6th cruise with RC and it’s our 10th cruise overall having taken Celebrity for our other past cruises. I mention this to give you context. Port of LA Prepare before you leave to be waiting quite a bit to drop your luggage as well as collect it after the cruise. Despite a timed arrival, the port was completely overwhelmed and under-staffed. Prepare for 60-90 min to get on the ...

NOT WORTH IT! BE PREPARED TO DO YOUR OWN MAINTENANCE IN AN OWNER'S SUITE ):

Forget spending the big bucks for the Owner's Suite unless you are ready to do your own maintenance in this suite (1300). Yes it is nice and spacious. That email you get from the concierge is for show only. Do not expect to get what you ask for. And you will be very lucky if anyone answers the phone. Don't open the sheers as the screws will come out of the railing. The TV, well - you better ...

The Navigator is a Beautiful ship. Easy parking at the port. $20 a day. We had a balcony cabin on deck 12. Cabin 1888. Entertainment on board was Vegas quality. We loved all of the shows. Dining- Main dining was a 6/10. Service great. Food soso. But I am a spoiled by cruising higher end cruise lines. Windjammer buffet was okay. Nothing special. On deck Mexican food was ...
