  3. Navigator of the Seas
We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and the length (9 nights). We are retired and love to cruise and wish Royal Caribbean did more longer cruisers (we sometimes do back to back on DIFFERENT ships). We do not like to stay on the same ship for back to back cruises because the entertainment is one of our favorite activities and it is repeated. I will admit that the Ice Show was so good on the Navigator that I saw it three times! My husband did not - went to the casino instead. We love the ABC islands (Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao). Snorkeling is our favorite activity off of the ship and Bonaire cannot be beat. We usually book the Seacow Double Dip day excursion through the ship but Royal Caribbean has an age limit of 75 for snorkeling so we cannot book through them next time. Highly recommend the Seacow - you are in groups of 10 people at a time and they are very professional and also lots of fun. The Navigator is an older ship but we love the size and especially the swimming pool in the Solarium. Plus the hot tubs are hotter than on some of the newer ships. The staff were very friendly and the food was fantastic. We always eat in the main dining room at night and usually ate there for lunch. Highly recommend this cruise!

Cabin Review

Cabin 7223
We usually book inside cabins because we travel with a group of friends and are NEVER in our rooms except to sleep and change clothes. We get our beds separated and it makes the room appear much bigger and easier to get around in. Our room steward was very good about our few requests (extra hangers, extra washcloths and ice).
