We heard that cruise lines were limiting capacity in light of COVID and the recent return of the cruise industry. Not wanting to fly and looking for a family vacation for our small family of 3 from Orange County, CA, we decided to book this Mexican Riveria cruise leaving from nearby Long Beach, California. In October, we received an email stating that the stateroom we reserved was not available ...

Felt good to be out again, but some points of concern

Overall, we had a great time. This three night cruise was from Los Angeles, CA to Ensenada, Mexico. Guests that were vaccinated were given wrist bands that identified you as "fully vaccinated". On board the ship, there were "vaccinated only" sections clearly marked, however, this wasn't enforced. There was no obvious checking of wristbands. After the first day, guest without the wrist ...

This has to be one of my favorite cruises out of many over the years. Just a quick 4 day cruise out of LA. The staff were simply amazing, it was so clear they were very appreciative to be back working and welcoming guests. I believe this was cruise #4 after the start up and I’m glad RCCl came back to Cali. Only 1,800 pax and we were treat very well. Had a superb balcony cabin on deck 12 which was ...

After nearly two and a half years and several cancellations it was really nice to get back on a cruise ship. This was our seventh cruise overall and second on Navigator having sailed on her pre-amp in Europe. We also had a couple of firsts on this cruise: first time in a suite and first time with the Unlimited Dining Package. The boarding process was pretty quick and easy. We showed all ...

First Cruise - Good dinner, entertainment hit or miss, cigarette smoke horrible

Dinner in main dining room - Excellent. We made our reservations the night before, or the morning of the same day of dining. Overall the food was very good. Service was great. Upon learning of dietary restrictions, the staff went extremely above and beyond to make sure my needs were met. Prime rib cooked to perfection. Lunch as Mexican Bar - (included) - a great place to grab a meal or a ...

OVERRUN SPRING BREAKERS

This was one of the last cruises before the COVID-19 outbreak took down the cruise lines. I was not on spring break--I'm an actual, real adult that doesn't need to get drunk and vomit all over a cruise ship. The college idiots overran all public areas day and night and were very noisy in the stateroom areas all night long. Despite complaints, the ship staff made no attempts to control them. ...

We chose this cruise because I it was kid friendly. We celebrated 60th and 40th birthdays and went with a large group. Cons When contacting customer service before our trip, our group was misinformed many times. Not as baby friendly has we hoped. We brought our 9 month old baby. Couldn’t get a high chair the first night and almost didn’t get one the second night. Had to go on a scavenger ...

This was our first cruise so there is a lot to unload! I hope that any first timer can take something from this :) We are a family of 4 myself, my husband and our daughters 9 and 10. My husbands biggest fear in the world was flying. We have been together for 20 years and I suffered for the last 20 years.lol. So when our daughter made it to the pop warner cheer nationals in Disney he quickly ...

I went on a Birthday party trip for a family member. The food was not good nor was a variety of free food available during party hours on the boat. We kept having to pay for food. We had to pay for sodas. The sofa table was hard and uncomfortable. No mattress was given. We complained every day and was not accommodated at all. We were given extra blankets to pad the hard surface but that did ...

Although I’m listing cons, we did have a fantastic time and I doubt any of this will be a reason not to cruise on this ship. This was our 47th cruise and we’ve loved them all. These short trips that the cruise lines are offering these days are a great way to binge on food and fun, but not for too long! CONS “My Time Dining” The “My” isn’t referring to the passenger. “My” refers to R.C. ...
