  3. Navigator of the Seas
This was our second RCI cruise, first one was on Freedom. Ships almost identical except for size. Embarkation was very slow and line identification poor. Finally on board and walked through Windjammer three times looking for available table before going to Cafe Promenade. Balcony cabin was spotless and very comfortable. Room steward (Ivan) was very attentive and helpful. Had MTD and chose to keep same table every night because our servers (Ricky and Inyoman) were so good. Food in all the venues was delicious. Had lunch at Sabors and it was excellent. Also did the Galley Tour and Champagne Brunch, loved it. Booked two excursions through ship and one on my own. The ship one in San Juan (tour of city) was okay, guide was good. The non-ship one in St. Kitts (Grey Tours) was more enjoyable, also a city tour. In St. Maarten the double decker bus tour was the worst. Had to wear headphones to hear guide, who was almost unintelligible. 15 minute stops every now and then were spent in bathroom line. No AC in bottom section of bus. The shows were okay, most enjoyable being the illusionist and Beatles cover band. The ice show is always a big hit. Debarkation went much smoother than getting on. Hired a porter and was off the ship and in our car in 20 minutes! We would definitely sail on Navigator again and are planning to try Oasis soon when she comes to FLL.
