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 ...

Disappointing

We were not impressed with our first Royal Caribbean cruise. We expected it to be higher quality than the Princess and Norwegian cruises we usually take. It wasn’t. In fact, it was of lesser quality and just ...

Very disappointing

I live in south Florida so I came straight to the ship from home. I was supposed to get priority check in. Instead there was an hour and a half of a snaking line to navigate at the port of Miami. First time on ...

Average price Average cruise

It was an affordable vacation on Spring Break as a family. Navigator of the Seas was a decent ship. It was not that modern. You could tell it was refurbished at some point. The decor was inviting, a little above ...

Great cruise itinerary, service could be a lot better.

We chose this cruise because of the date and itinerary. We were traveling with our older kids, in their 20s. Embarkation was OK, but it always feels a bit disappointing when there is no one to even great you ...

A good time cruising...but I've had better.

This was our first Royal Caribbean Cruise, and it will likely be our last. It's not for lack of trying from some of the staff, however. We had a GREAT head waiter who worked hard to rectify my complaints, a ...

Royal Caribbean is getting worse

We used to love Royal Caribbean, and maybe it's just the smaller ships that are not as good as they used to be. We loved Allure when we were on it 3 years ago, but Navigator was a disappointment. We were not ...

We chose this cruise because we had never been to Bonaire and it was a good deal. We were very disappointed in the shows, to the point where we stopped going to them, except for Ice. The Ice dancing was a 10 plus ...
