  3. Navigator of the Seas
Sailing from Southampton ... Chose Navigator as we were becoming disappointed with Celebrity and decided to give RC another try. So glad we ignored negative reports. Far from the tired ship with poor food we were told about. Spotless and shiny...If you look hard , yes you can see signs of wear and tear, but oh how the wonderful, happy and helpful crew made up for it. Meals have plenty of choice , especially if you avoid the nightmare windjammer that was crazy..simply go down to restaurants that offer self serve or waited to a high standard. Lovely table companions, super waiters. Our stateroom attendant was the happiest man we ever met..and that sums up the staff. Happy in their work, unlike some other ships ..made so much difference..We didn't feel guilty for being on a cruise while they worked. For the first time no one asked us to give them a perfect review of they would be in trouble. Royal Caribbean...you got it so right with this ship...We hope your others are the same and we will be back again! This was cruise no. 18...and we are real picky cruisers...this one was one of only 2 we felt we're 100% great value cruises. Good job:-)

Delightful surprise
