  3. Navigator of the Seas
Although our cruise on Navigator of the Seas was slightly below our previous experiences with Royal Caribbean (Harmony of the Seas , Legend of the Seas, Song of Norway), it was still a positive experience. Overall, our experience and cruise was very positive. Our stateroom (inside with promenade view) was very clean and comfortable. The bed was comfortable. The toilet would not flush one day when we returned from a shore excursion and the issue was quickly addressed by the maintenance staff. The vast majority of the staff members were very pleasant and helpful. The other guests at our main dining room table were very pleasant and friendly; we had a great time talking and getting to know each other during our cruise. Our dining room waiter, Medel, and assistant waiter, Volodymyr, were outstanding -- very friendly and helpful. Our stateroom attendant, Nunun, was very good. While the food was still very good, I felt it was a little better in the dining room on our previous cruises. We purchased the same Internet package as we had on Harmony (VOOM Surf Voyage Package - 3 Devices), the service was not as reliable. I talked with the Internet represent on our third and fourth days because we experienced sporadic problems with access, being "kicked out", and having a screen appear which said we needed to sign in to connect when another screen clearly indicated we were already signed in. He made several changes and the reliability improved, but we still experienced some issues during the remainder of our cruise. We experienced no similar issues on Harmony. Very good variety of activities were offered on-board. We enjoyed our shore excursions, especially the Tuscan Countryside – San Gimignano and Volterra. Unless you wanted your time to be spent shopping and eating, I would not recommend the Cassis (Extended Time) excursion in Marseilles. Our tour guides were informative. We would have liked more time in Lisbon, Portugal and Vigo, Spain. Excursions: Gibraltar - City and Wine Tour (8 rating out of 10) Alicante – Guadalest (9) Rome – Glories of the Gladiators (8) Livorgno – Tuscan Countryside – San Gimignano & Volterra (10) Marseilles – Cassis (Extended Time) (7) Barcelona – Gaudi’s Barcelona (8) Lisbon – Majestic Sceneries & Wines (8) Vigo – The Border Country (8)
