We are experienced cruisers. We chose RCI and Port of Galveston for the convenience of the majority of our party driving to the port. The best things about Navigator are the Ice Skating Show, the "FlowRider", and the Climbing Wall.
Our travel agent had our group sit together in the Sapphire dining room. Not once did the staff acknowledge our anniversary. The food is only average at best. Other cruise lines offer a better selection of entrees. The extremely slow service in the main dining room at breakfast the first shore excursion day almost caused us to miss our tour.
RCI's setup for viewing and selecting pictures taking by ship's photographers requires substantial software overhaul to work properly. Many passengers could not get their pictures to appear on the monitors by scanning their room cards. One member of our group purchased a CD of all the pictures on the cruise at a price of $172. When the CD was received in the mail after returning home, the pictures were of other people not in our group.
RCI has promoted the extensive renovation Navigator of the Seas went through January 2014. RCI must have spent the money in the engine room and crew's quarters. We couldn't tell it was spent on public areas.
RCI appears to promote the Indian and Asian trade. This ship had the highest percentage of these rude, obnoxious passengers of any cruise we have been on to date.
There are too many good cruise lines to waste time and money on Royal Caribbean International.
Cabin had enough room. Arrangement was mediocre. We always get a balcony cabin. Apparently the Jan. 2014 renovation to add more cabins meant reducing size some to squeeze in additional cabins.The duvets are too hot. I had to ask 3 times to exchange the duvet for a blanket.
