  3. Navigator of the Seas
We had never cruised these ports before and it was one cruise we had talked about for several years. We were not disappointed. Navigator has a great crew and the ship is kept in great shape. The RC land tours were well done and very enjoyable. We would highly recommend this cruise. The only negative on this particular cruise is the same issue we have with most of the Royal Caribbean cruises. It is obvious that the food quality is going downhill. It seems the ingredients are getting cheaper and the selection of good food is getting cut back all the time. The dining room service is as good as ever but the food selection and quality is just not there anymore. There are other cost cutting issues that keep getting implemented and the sad thing is that only the long time cruisers seem to notice. RC is obviously playing to the younger, newer cruisers who don't realize what they are no longer getting. For us older, loyal cruisers it may be time to look for another cruise line who still appreciates the folks who cruise all the time.

Great cruise, great ports of call
