Navigator of the Seas Cruise Review by susanjperry
- Sail Date: April 2017
- Destination: Transatlantic
Chosen for its ports and price, both of which were good.
We had sailed on this ship 1.5 years ago. In that time RCCL seems to be doing some cost cutting. Furnishings in lounge areas were showing extreme wear. Our cabin steward was required to care for 16 cabins on his own which left little time for some extra cleaning that needed to be done in our room.
Capacity on this ship overpowers access to seating in most areas. Having only one small venue for snacks during off-buffet hours resulted in no seating available most of the time. Seating was also impossible during any 'game' event as no lounge was big enough to accommodate participants in these trivia type activities.
Entertainment was a mixture of excellent to poor. When there was a very talented guest entertainer, the ship's band (although excellent themselves) drowned out guest by the volume.
Overcharged for laundry twice and had to go to guest services for adjustments.
Food and food service was excellent! Staff in Windjammer and in Dining room were efficient, friendly and accommodating. No complaints in this area.
Shops offered variety of goods and sales were good as usual.
Excursions had several choices, although we usually do our own thing at ports now.
It seems RCCL may be putting all of their efforts into the newer jumbo ships?
As frequent cruisers we will be hesitant to book RCCL again.

Would have done D-Day beaches but they do not offer anything to Juno, where the best D-day beaches museum is.
