7 night Repo cruise Civitavechia to Barcelona

Sail Date: November 2013
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Rome (Civitavecchia)
We love cruising and we love Royal Caribbean but we did not love our experience on Navigator of the Seas!

Embarkation at Civitavecchia was straight forward and efficient, as was disembarkation at Barcelona, any problems we encountered were in between.

We had the soda package but most of the fountain soda machines were broken and the bars were serving soft drinks from large bottles meaning they were warm and had no carbonation unless you were lucky to get the first glass from the bottle! When we complained about it we were treated really badly as apparently we should have complained sooner - we were giving them a chance to fix it.

I think there was a staff corridor above our cabin and it was so noisy from the sounds of trolleys being rolled up and down, day and night. We can sleep through pretty much anything but this was a pain in the neck.

We had one sea day and were looking forward to lunch in the MDR but when we got there they were closing even More though there was still over an hour to go according to the Cruise Compass. Food in the Windjammer wasn't as good as other cruises - it was lukewarm at best.

Overall we were actually happy to leave the cruise - a first for us :( Less
