This is the third cruise we did and the first time with RCI on the navigator of the seas. Although the ship was fully booked we did not have to wait long and staff was very helpfull and friendly. Onboard the facilities were very clean and easy to find. Children loved the activities and the staff was very friendly and had had all the patience. several of old age cruisers however complaint about every single little detail (which in my eyes was not an issue at all). This was very depressing. the ship is def a go for family. We had the choice to sit, like every person, to join the table in the diningroom for breakfast, lunch and dinner or to go to the windjammer, the upper dining room with all the choice of food in a buffet. Food was never short and always warm. lots of variety too. the shows were very well done and the band very professional! We did have a lot of luck as the weather kept good all the way through. There was one issue we did not like but this has nothing to do with the company itself. we did an excursion book on board to tenerife and had an awfull bad (local)guide while going to the vulcano, a long trip by bus. she was not professional and very bad in translation. I hope they will change this guide. I would def. recommend this trip, this ship and the personal!! we will go again!! Read Less

My wife and I took an anniversary cruise from Civvetivechia, Italy along with 3700 people for the at capacity RCCL Mediterrainian Cruise. The food was cafeteria grade in both the dining room and the windjammer buffet. The lines and crowd were so large when dining in the buffet for breakfast and lunch that tables were not available, many people had to stand and eat or wait 15-20 min to find an available table. We tried ordering room service twine and it was even worse-limited selection and poor quality. The entertainment was sub par and included variety shows, C rated "lounge style" singers, a man riding a uni-cycle, a violinest, an ice skating show. The cruise hosts were upbeat, informative and entertaining. The interior of the cruise and rooms was moderate, the ship was built in 2002 (seven yrs old and needs a complete remodel). The best part of the cruise in my opinion were the ports. Ephesius, Sicily, Turkey & Crete were amazing. However, more than the poor food quality and over-crowdedness of the ship this review was heavily influenced on the fellow passengers. 75% of them were pushy, rude Italians that continuisly skipped in line for shows, at buffet lines & getting on and off the ship. And their kids were loud, obnoxious ignoring the ship rules and the cruise staff never once spoke up to enforce the ships rules. For sure the cruises from Europe ports need alot of improvement. If we consider another from this area it would be on a higher tier cruise line like Celebrity X or MSC Splendia where the caliber of fellow passengers is most likely better. Read Less
