Cabin: Interior Stateroom

This was our second trip on Navigator of the Seas. We wanted to do a Norwegian Fjords cruise and this was one of two options offered by Royal Caribbean. Embarkation went very smoothly. We were allocated inside cabin 3029 which was located where the old Disco would have been - Sabor was above us. It is a quiet location (though we occasionally could hear someone next door snoring!) and we had no problems; plenty of storage space for us - comfortable beds and good air conditioning (we like a cool room). We had a kettle in the cabin and the steward (whom we only saw on the first night that we arrived) kept replenishing milk and tea (no coffee provided).

The one thing that I would state categorically is that the crew are incredibly hard working and really do want you to have a good holiday. One complaint I have is lack of seating. After dinner or a show, it was always a problem to find somewhere to sit.

Entertainment: The Royal Caribbean Orchestra are excellent, the singers, dancers and musicians were fine and the Ice Dancing show was very professional but overall the other acts, with the exception of the Michael Buble tribute, were not of the usual standard. The singer in the Two Poets Pub, Paul Sainsbury, was very good but by the end of a week became quite repetitive. The pianist David Curtis, in the Schooner bar was a good musician and singer but spoiled my enjoyment of the music by constantly ad-libbing and adding his own (questionable) twists such as passing remarks on unsuspecting people passing by. What he failed to realise is that he made fun of someone who is possibly in the early stages of dementia by singing "does he know where he's going to?" when he became disoriented and I would urge him to think twice in the future before getting cheap laughs at the expense of vulnerable people.

Cabin Q

Nice quiet cabin, located where the old Catacombs disco used to be. Small but perfectly formed
