The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

The ship was very pretty, had most of what we like in elegant decor to delight our senses and keep us dazzled. The food, too, was very good, possibly the best we have experienced in a wealth of cruises we have ...

Can still be enjoyable if you don't let the cost cutting get to you

We cruise with RC quite regularly so it is very easy to notice the ever increasing evidence of cost cutting each time we go on board. It hasn't quite reached the point where I would consider going elsewhere but it's ...

Not following dress code, and too loud around pools with tv and music

The itinerary was selected for view of islands, and sail time to enjoy the amenities and play cards with 10 friends. We all did not like the loud band/music/tv/announcements during the day around the pool. We did ...

Just OK

This was our 10th cruise, and our 2nd with Royal Caribbean. The staff was very polite and helpful. We had a balcony room and it was a typical balcony room square footage-wise and storage-wise. I would give the ...

Nice ship, DISAPPOINTING casino experience

My review will focus on the casino aspect of the ship as well as my overall opinion of the trip. The Navigator of the Seas is in the Voyager class, and is similar to the Independence of the Seas in its layout. ...

First off, may I begin by noting that we have sailed many of RCCL's ships over the years, both domestically and internationally. That said, I cannot ignore the gradual decline in both service and quality of food ...
