Just returned from a short Stages cruise on Navigator of The Seas,
Found good and bad points on board, I will start with the good.
Embarking the ship was easy arriving by taxi we waited a short while, the were passed via security check onto check in and on board, only to find no cabins were ready very little seating area, lunch was served in the Windjammer which was excellent but this quickly filled up, and seats here also run short, so it was eat up and back on your feet walking around looking for seats, cabins were opened at 1:30 pm but when we found ours it was still being cleaned, the luggage was also missing, and this never arrived till after 5pm..
Cabins were good but lacked a few home comforts no Shower Gel, Shower Caps, Hair Dryers etc.
Crew were very good always a smile and tried hard to please, with exception of customer services, wifi desk , and the excursion desk.
The excursion desk were no help , give no information and failed to arrange shuttle busses in port.
We were allocated first sitting for dinner but told we there were no reserved tables and it was first come first served! So we dined in the Windjammer.
The bars were VERY expensive at $8 a pint! With the result not many used them.
Entertainment was first class with big star names like Michael Ball, Collabro, Bobby Dravro and a host more, only problems there were long queues for each show, with seats for some shows reserved for VIPs and shows often over run and clashed.
On return to Southampton we were given breakfast and luggage unloaded with great speed as the ship had a very short turn round.
One last point my wife was taken ill and we had to visit the medical centre twice , the staff were very good, but for the size of the ship was worried it was under staffed!
Could have done with a few more home comforts and bathroom poor
