Navigator of the Seas Cruise Review by Micklen2
- Sail Date: July 2018
- Destination: Mediterranean
- Cabin Type: Ocean View Balcony
Biggest thing was lack of staff (assume lots of staff have been robbed to staff new ships). So difficult to get served by a waiter, so go yourself but then can't get served at the bar for ages due to lack of bar staff. The Star lounge on a couple of occasions had one bar staff and one waiter. Other bars were the same.
Food in the Windjammer buffet was very good. Tried the main dinning room once and service was slow.
Entertainment was good in the main theatre, but as this was in the school holidays with over 1000 kids there was no real entertainment aimed at them (classical violinist and four opera singers did not go down well with my grand children). Other lounges were ok, but lacking unless you like a three piece band. Quizzes were ok, but staff lacked experience and most could not use a mic, hence sound very fuzzy and distorted. Over all entertainment staff were armatures with no training.
Disembarkation was a nightmare with no communication and delays all round.
Overall, we are looking at other cruise lines as RCL have lost the plot, and seem to have forgotten what they are in business for and for whome. A very dangerous thing for a business to do.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews
BarcelonaPicked up by coach and taken on small tour of city, but so quick it was hardly worth it, and no stops. Guide spoke rough English so gather we must stay with her at stadium. On arrival she tells us if we want to go round on our own we can, so most of us did. Once in the stadium it was pandemonium. Thousands of people roughly following a marked route and massive bottle necks at thinks like trophy room (as you would expect) exept this was worse because there was no organisation with most people wondering aimlessly with no guide.View All 12,780 Barcelona Cruise Port Reviews
Stadium is worth a visit but not with a guide. Do it on your own. (Also stadium staff extremely rude).
