Stand and Deliver

The Ship: The major problem was that there were far too many passengers for some of the facilities on board. Getting a sunbed anywhere was sometimes impossible (and always if the sun was out!). There are the usual ...

Never again even if it was free!

While we have cruised many times on all of the cruise lines being located only 20 minutes from Port Everglades we had only one experience with RCL on the Oasis, and that was a good cruise so we thought we would try ...

HAPPY with the FREEDOM but NOT the Navigator of the Seas.

We picked this cruise just to get away for a break. This was our 5th cruise, 3 of which were in the last 17 months. (Did we say retirement!) 4 out of 5 cruises were on RC ships. We parked at Park 'N Go about a ...

This was our 4th cruise on RCCL and I doubt we will ever book another with them.

I chose this cruise because it was priced right and I wanted to experience this ship. I also had never been to Labadee, their private island. The ship was beautiful and very clean. The cabin and especially the ...

LOVE RCC but NOT the Navigator of the Seas.

We have always been VERY pleased with our experiences aboard Royal Caribbean ships. This ship however DID NOT meet our expectations. Most of the crew was very professional and helpful but very disorganized and not ...

Relaxing

I liked that there were lots of beach chairs on deck. Checking out towels each day was a pain. And people did save chairs even though they weren't supposed to. The captain was super hard to understand and didn't ...

Overcrowded and Underwhelmed

First time on Royal Caribbean and a poor first impression. Check in was not bad, but could tell security screening was intended to find alcohol, not weapons - side table was full of confiscated booze. Stateroom ...

Some Good, Much Bad

First, the good. Food, service, and shows were all excellent. I reserve the "bad" for the ship and for Royal Caribbean itself. While we are not heavily experienced cruisers, this was our third cruise and this ...

Not sure I'd do RC again.

Decided to take a cruise all by my lonesome and got a great last minute deal. I'm normally a NCL cruiser. I stayed at the Hyatt Place in Ft. Lauderdale. Nice hotel and offered a complementary shuttle from the ...

Refurbished ship still very old, and felt antique.

I should start by saying the staff on the Navigator is great. But, this ship was refurbished in 2014 & was only outfitted with virtual screens in certain cabins (we had such a cabin) and navigation screens on each ...

Hopefully a fair, if somewhat negative, review of 'What to Expect' while on RC

Overall: We took the Navigator of the Seas (Royal Caribbean) to the Western Caribbean: Coco Cay, Cozumel, Grand Cayman starting November 22nd, 2015. We had about 25 family members, and I was travelling with my ...

Well, this was not the best of the cruises we have been on. We have cruised previously on NCL (8), Celebrity (2) and Princess (1). We flew out of Halifax on November 13th on American Airlines to Philadelphia and ...

I have always loved RCCL. I talked a first time cruiser into going on a short test cruise..WORST DECISION. This ship has absolutely no management. We had a very old and brown washcloth on our deck from the time ...

This was our first cruise and we were so excited! We arrived on time and had to wait 3 hours (with a baby) to board the ship. We bought a drink package, but didn't realize they were charging us every day for the ...

Rethinking Royal Carribean

Up front I will admit that my review is tainted by the 3 hour wait we endured outside the terminal in 90 degree heat to get on board the NOS and more importantly RCCL failure to step in and address the issue. The ...

I think the main issue I had with our cruise was the order we went on cruise ships. We went on allure and oasis then went on the navigator. If we went on the navigator first, we wouldn't have been disappointed. ...

Not So Royal Customer Service

Being in hospitality myself, it requires foundational customer service skills that are not reflected in Royal Caribbean's core values. I booked this cruise with two best friends to celebrate our 30th birthday. ...
