Navigator of the Seas Cruise Review by stevekp45

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2017
  • Destination: the British Isles & Western Europe

this was our first cruise, we found the ship to be very clean and the staff very pleasant, the food both in the windjammer and main dining room was excellent, but I would suggest getting a table 1st for the windjammer and sorting out where your food types are before loading your plates as by the time you find a table which is not occupied your food tends to be cold. there is loads to do for families but not a lot early in the mornings unless you like lounging around the pool, also a lot of the attractions, flow rider, climbing wall and ice rink were not open much, no reason was given and we weren't told before our cruise, but this did not affect us as we are middle aged and preferred a quieter cruise anyway.

families with children will love the ship.

the only fault we found was there was not enough time in Lisbon but loads of time in the 2 other ports this information was not available to us both before we booked and when we boarded which for us as middle aged people meant we didn't have much to do in vigo or le havre as walking far from the ship can be a bit hilly unless of course you decide to pay for a shore excursion., so as a result we cut our shore trips short and enjoyed a quieter ship.

the information supplied for the ports was vague unless you attended the seminar the night before in one of the bars

the main problem we found was that there was not enough seating throughout the ship which tended to mean we spent a lot of time going to different bars and shows etc a lot earlier than we would normally do just to make sure we got a seat, bit frustrating really.

overall though we would still go on this cruise again irrespective of the couple of minor points and seating issue which did not appeal to us.

Cabin Review

Cabin interior stateroom 7225

very clean, all lights and cupboards worked as they should, internall areas of the drawers were showing signs of wear as is the rest of the room, but this is in relation to the rest of the ship.

we found the shower and basin water pressure to be a bit low but was well hot enough.

the bed was a double and access around the bed was very tight, caught our legs a couple of times, as singles it would probably be ok.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Le Havre

not much to do, too much time allocated for this port


best port of the trip loads to do, vibrant town
