The itinerary, was a little unique, the ability to do an 8 day cruise, as opposed to a 'normally offered' 7 day cruise. I was interested in sailing with the Navigator, as I had sailed on this ship within the past 8 years. It 'supposedly' had been dry-docked for modernization and refresh, but it still showed plenty of signs of age(ageing), lack of continuous maintenance, and required many updates to keep up with some other RCCL ships in their fleet. I'm hoping (and was told) that this ship will be going for dry dock in the next couple of seasons, as really does need the extra amenities, and modernization, as the other ships; that represent the RCCL name and product. The R Bar still shows the same reflection of The Champagne Bar, and the Diamond/Diamond Plus and Concierge Lounge still do not have enough room for its loyal, repeat and Concierge level cruising passengers

Good Ports of Call But Quite Dated vs other RCCL ships in fleet

Cabin Review

Cabin
What can I possibly say, there's a dated feel to the stateroom, the noise barrier from other staterooms or hallway, is non-existent, and majority of the stateroom have the same look as they did 5 years ago, with exception of the dressing on the bedding which had been changed to an updated look. Bring an extra pillow, as every pillow we had and even requested replacements were flat from wear and tear, and made for a very uncomfortable rest/sleep, and it showed once you got up and had such back pains
