Navigator of the Seas Cruise Review by Cooley Consumers
- Sail Date: April 2012
- Destination: Transatlantic
- Cabin Type: Superior Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony
The shows were not quite what we had expected from previous TA's and the singers/dancers only gave 1 show the first week. There was grumbling from many guests about the Cruise Director Warren Clark that I just attributed to not enough information by the passengers! They complained that the trivia questions on rock 'n roll were too hard. Hey! That's WHY it's called trivia! I thought that Warren and the Hotel Director Robert to be great fun, especially on the walk for the Make a Wish. ("Gideeyup, mule, gideeyup" --- inside joke that only TWO people will appreciate!)
Our stateroom attendance Duane was GREAT. His supervisor needs to be taken aside and told not to argue with subordinates in front of passengers. Duane was great but the supervisor jumped all over one of the other attendants IN THE HALL and they had a go around! No pretty and should have been done in private.
The excursions were good. Barcelona - we saw Montserrat again, but we DID get to see the Black Madonna this time! Toulons was good, and the visit to the vineyard in Livorno like a shopping push - "buy out wine". Still it was fun.
We saw a LOT of sick/injured passengers on this ship. There was one "Alpha" call which we later heard involved a passenger who was told by his doctor not to go on the cruise due to a gallbladder problem. The guy went and guess what?? Gallbladder attack, and he had to be taken off the ship at the first port. In France there were a lot of sprains and one lady fell at a cafe in the port and had to be taken to hospital. Again, not the ship's fault.
I did find a problem with the tours. They got us back to the ship very late, well past the time that the captain had given for us to return. This resulted in the ship being late in departing. Someone needs to do something about these tours!

Montserrat Walking TourThere was grumbling on the coach about leaving soooooooooooo early to visit the church, but when we got there, we were all glad. The church closes its doors to the Black Madonna at 10:30 a.m. and we just barely made it. Great job.View All 84 Montserrat Walking Tour Reviews
