Sail Date: Aug 2014
Cabin: Superior Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony

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.

Cabin Review

Superior Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony

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.
