The Navigator was not ready to set sail

We (a group of 31) chose this ship because of the "new water slide and water coaster." The ship was to be refurbished and greater than ever. The first original sailing on February 24th was canceled and RC should ...

We have sailed Royal Caribbean many times before. But this time was a disappointment. I got bedbug bites! Our room was fairly clean. But I was wondering why the cabin attendant changed our sheets every night, and ...

A decline for RCCL standards, but still a nice ship

The Navigator is both elegant and well maintained. But the crew seemed to have lost enthusiasm along with the company´s expansion of the fleet or some other kind of management crisis. Already during boarding expect ...
