  3. Navigator of the Seas
As it was my 60th birthday we wanted a special holiday to mark the occasion. We both love cruising and St Petersburg has always been on my 'bucket list', so we chose to sail with Royal Caribbean on a Baltic cruise itinerary - we were not disappointed. Embarkation in Southampton was smooth and well organised. My partner uses a mobility scooter and we were fast tracked through ... before we knew it we were onboard! The Navigator is showing its age ... and in need of a refurb but it is clean and has a friendly relaxed feel. Our stateroom was large, clean and met our requirements perfectly (see cabin review). We felt at home straight away! Ash, our cabin steward, was great - friendly and fun! We were on My Time Dining, most nights we went down about 7pm and were accommodated without any problem .... most nights we had the same table. Julien ... our waiter, was fabulous! We couldn't fault the food- although the portions were huge! We do not go to the main show in the evenings ... preferring the smaller venues. We particularly enjoyed watching The Vendettas.... brilliant band. We managed to catch at least one of their sets every night. We also liked Rodel (guitarist) .... although felt that he wasn't always performing in the best location- for example Promenade deck. We chose the ship excursions in all ports except St Petersburg, where we splashed out on a 2 day private tour (just the 2 of us with our personal driver and tour guide) with MaxiBalt which was fantastic and worth every penny. The world cup was on whilst we were there and our driver took us out to see the new stadium and we also had chance to experience the FanZone! Little extras we would not have seen on an organised excursion. What a fantastic holiday! The whole experience was one to be repeated..... we will definitely sail with Royal Caribbean again!

Did not disappoint.
