Awesome Ports of Call

Navigator of the Seas Cruise Review by Yurko

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Apr 2017
  • Destination: the Southern Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Promenade Stateroom

We chose this cruise because of the Ports of Call. Embarkation was a breeze and we only had about a fifteen minute wait until our cabin was ready. We always do self carry with our luggage, so it's nice when the room is ready straight away. Navigator is a decent sized ship, but this cruise had the most movement of any cruise we've been on. Dining experiences were great in both the main dining room and the Windjammer. We never eat at the specialty restaurants. Daytime entertainment/activities were poor. Very little going on around the pool in way of organized activities, live music, dancing, etc. They have a huge big screen TV that played Chive TV all day and a movie at night. Night time entertainment was mediocre. We saw a couple of good comedians, the ice skating show was pretty good, and battle of the sexes game was fun. Disembarkation processes for shore excursions and final disembarkation were very disorganized, but the excursions themselves were awesome! We'd love to stay loyal to RCL, but we may sail with a different line next time. This was our fifth cruise with RCL and we feel the service and attention on the smaller ships has decreased since the mega ships have started sailing.

Cabin Review

Promenade Stateroom
Cabin PR 6275

Our cabin was super noisy, not noise from the Promenade, but from a service area next door and a mystery noise from above. We spent the first three nights with almost no sleep. Guest services did offer us an interior stateroom, which was quiet, but was a downgrade from our Promenade cabin.


Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Labadee

Labadee is beautiful! This was our second trip to Labadee. Last time we did the water park, the zipline and alpine coaster. All were fun, but this time we wanted to spend more time exploring. We purchased the all day pass for the alpine coaster and rode several times through the day. So much fun! Shopping was fun too, just know the locals in the open market area are very aggressive, but it can be fun to deal with them. Don't miss the Dragon's Breath at the overlook!!

Cave Tour

Seeing the caves was amazing! Saw lots of bats too!! Many steep stairs and close spaces, so not for the faint of heart or folks with mobility issues.

Distillery Tour

The distillery tour was one part of a tour, wish we could have stayed longer. Very interesting place, even if your not a fan of booze.

Curacao

The tour to the caves, museum and distillery also gives a nice tour of the island with an informative guide.

Museum

Super interesting tour and in a very cool old quarantine hospital. Lots of great info.

Fabulous time on this little island...snorkeling with blue parrot fish, banana boat rides, water park, buffet, open bar, and more. Great place to spend a day!
