Navigator To Set Sail Early

May 24, 2002
In what amounts today to cruise-dom’s worst kept secret, Royal Caribbean has finally confirmed an early birth for Navigator of the Seas. The ship, the fourth Voyager-class vessel, is scheduled for a January 18 inaugural but sources at Royal Caribbean now say the actual first cruise will embark on December 14. That still gives Navigator of the Seas nearly a month to prepare; the ship is expected to be released from Kvaerner Masa-Yards on November 18.
