  3. Navigator of the Seas
First time for us on a Royal Caribbean ship with over 20 cruises under our belts mostly with Thomson TUI and P&O we thought why not give them a try. The Navigator is a big ship and requires alot of walking both stairs and passage ways and definitely more rides in lifts etc and getting on and off the ship for tender boats and to go a shore can take some time. The ship its self is showing its 15yrs in service a lot of the soft furnishings and carpets need some TLC. The cost of every thing is expensive on board and prices of things has the wow factor. OK now to the important part the food amazing it is and we enjoyed meals in the MDR and the Windjammer buffet and we ate well. They have a good pastry chef on this galley thats for sure and all the chefs know what there doing. Entertainment was good a really good collection of musicians in the nine piece orchestra brilliant to back up the dances and singers. Headline acts were Darren Day, Roy Walker. East coast boys singing Frankie Valli songs brilliant and they were introduced by a lively cruise director. Ok service was good waiters in the MDR very well trained and keen to help. House keeping was good all seemed cheerful and happy. On the bar work waiters seemed a bit stressed and short handed under pressure. Will we go on another RCI cruise yes we have already booked it on the Independence of the Sea for next year. Thats about it really happy cruising BYE.
