Liked the vibe; staff communication not so much

Pretty loyal to Royal and a very good cruise overall, but have to say I am disappointed in what I feel is a slippage in quality of food and communication. We booked this cruise about 8 months prior to departure. ...

Birthday cruise for our youngest with friends and family

We needed a break, and since our youngest was celebrating her 21st birthday the week before the cruise, we decided this was a perfect time. This was Navigator's third trip after her recent yard period, and she ...

March 1, 2019 1st Cruise After Dry Dock

We chose this cruise because of the 9 day itinerary. And because of how long we were in port at each stop. But unfortunately because Royal decided to set sale with the ship not being at 100% we did not get the full ...

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 enjoy cruising at Christmas - no cooking, no planning, no decorating, just enjoying time together as an extended family. Last year during our Western Caribbean Christmas Cruise on the Rhapsody, we pre-booked ...

Based on Previous Reviews, Much BETTER Than Expected!

This was our first cruise with RC. We chose this ship for the itinerary: ABC islands. Unfortunately, we could not dock in Aruba due to high winds, but hey, it's Mother Nature. No one really wanted to go to ...

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 ...
