After two great cruises with RCI in previous years we had high hopes for the Navigator, but our dreams did not come true. RCI has become the king of the upsell, and the continuous hounding to buy buy buy severely detracted from the overall experience. A few vestiges of what cruising used to be remain, but we will be looking elsewhere the next time around.
Embarkation from Southampton was well organized and went quickly.
Our inside cabin (6509) at the front of the ship was adequately sized. I was initially concerned because the cabin was directly above the Star Lounge, but we couldn't hear any noise from the entertainment. There were odd tapping and clattering noises periodically throughout the night, but earplugs took care of those.
