Consistently Good

I've only been cruising for a few years, and I'm rather young compared to I think the average age here, but Royal Caribbean has provided a very consistent experience onboard Navigator and their other ships. Service ...

Enjoyed the itinerary but would not go in the school holidays again!

It is a nice ship but I think it does need attention in some areas. The cabin was nice and of a good size, however, the doors to the balcony were very stiff and you had to slam them hard. The balcony itself was in ...
