Was on Navigator for 2018 New Years cruise and was very satisfied. How could corporate destroy my excellent ratings in three months. There were NO complaints in January and a litany of complaints from this cruise Positive 1. Crew and servers were all superb. The problem is that they didn't have much to work with. 2. Passover seder was excellent, rabbi very good, food adequate, and we had a very good time. 3. Cabin was kept immaculate and our steward Steve was very helpful with anything we asked him. Negative 1. Debarkation was a disaster. Hundreds upon hundreds of people lined up all over the place based up the schedule RCCL gave us and NO place to go. First was called to leave ship over an HOUR from time given on paper. 2. Taste and quality of food served at dinner were horrible. DO NOT order the Australian bass. Three of our members "spit it up" after the first bite. A number of other dishes had very "little" taste, and had to be returned to the kitchen. This is in contrast to the excellent food we had on the New Year's cruise. 3. Overall menu was quite poor. There wasn't enough of a variety to make people happy.

How could one ship go from very good to poor in three (3) months?

Cabin Review

Cabin 7566
The cabin has a lot more room for storage than you would expect by first looking at it when you enter.
Cabin steward was great.
