We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. The food in the Main Dining Room could be improved. I ordered Prawns and was given a shrimp dish and the shrimp still had the shell on. The entertainment was great, so was the Ice Show. I don't agree with comments made that cruisers we're not happy with the entertainment. The Barricade Boys were off the chart awesome. We certainly enjoyed Perry Grant. Graham the Cruise Director was funny and informative. He can surely pack the Schooner Bar, 10-20 deep. I am so glad that RCL now has the hot milk in thermos instead of having it next to the oatmeal in a huge pot. We were invited to a Top Tier Party as Diamond members and that was very enjoyable. It would be nice if RCL would include more free mixed drinks for Diamond members in their menu. We will be back. Read Less

After some amazing cruises with TUI and Royal Caribbean, we chose to do the Norwegian Fjords primarily for the scenery. Sad to say Gerainger aside we didn’t see too much of the Fjords and spent a lot of time on choppy sea. Trips further into the Fjords were available but at a price. The ship wasn’t clean at all. Many windows were filthy, and some of the public areas were extremely dusty. We ate in the Windjammer as like many other cruisers we didn’t feel the need or the urge to dress up. As ever the awindjammer food was plentiful, varied and of a high standard. The captain of the ship was very conspicuous by his absence, making rare appearances and hardly any announcements. Probably the most disengaged captain we have ever experienced. Same could be said of the Cruise Director who although very pleasant could have done a lot more to liven things up. His job was made much harder by the lack of quality in the production team. One singer Suzanne was excellent but the remainder were amongst the worst we have ever experienced on our cruises. The headliner acts were also poor compared to other cruises apart from the Barricade Boys who put on a great show. As a consequence the theatre was never packed out. Overall the cruise lacked atmosphere, and would make us think seriously about using Royal Caribbean in the future. Our experience was further dampened with the spa staff failing on 4 occasions to correct my wife’s hair salon bill after over charging her. This was put right by guest services on the final morning. Also we had to vacate the ship at 8:15 am despite our flight home not being until 17:55, an extra 4 hours on the ship was offered at $44 each, which essentially meant sitting on the ship with no access to facilities apart from lunch in the Windjammer. We chose to endure 9 hours at the airport instead. We met some nice people whose views were much the same as ours. We would have happily come home after 3 days but decided to make the best of a bad job. Read Less

This is one of my favorite parts of the world and traveling into the fjords was a treat. The bright days and white nights near the summer solstice is a great time to see the scenery. RCL has done this for a long time and with a lot of ships. Most things they have right, but some improvement is still possible. One example is the sail in to Geiranger, our first stop. The ride in is simply spectacular - breathtaking cliffs on both sides that goes on for hours. It is a very long fjord and we started in at 3am. We docked at 7am. If you waited until 6 to get on deck, all you saw was a complicated docking, all the scenery had passed. None of this was noted anywhere, or announced anywhere. We got up at 4:00 and were amazed at what we saw, fog swirling past cliffs and houses in impossible locations. Very nice. The pop soundtrack that came on about 5 did not enhance this. The other ports had various interesting images, but none so different as Geiranger. The staff was pleasant and effective. I do not understand the dining room's pursuit of self congratulations by stopping all the serving mid meal, calling out the staff to sing and dance rather than serving dessert and coffee. Once maybe, but three nights on a seven night cruise? Our balcony cabin was well layed out, especially the tiny bathroom. All was kept spotless by our steward. There were lots of clean handicap bathrooms, one by every regular public bathroom. That was appreciated. For room service they now charge $8. Besides having next to no port information ahead of time (history? people? What is the area known for?) the one place seriously lacking was the entertainment. It was dismal. I watched 2 singing and dancing shows and all I can say is that they were LOUD. If all you can say about a production is it would be better with earplugs, that's not a good thing. The juggler was fine. So all in all a pleasant cruise with a few details lacking. Read Less

always wanted to see the Norwegian coastline and this cruise did not disappoint. From the snow covered mountains to the hustle and bustle of Bergen - and RCI did a good job organising everything. we didn't have a drink package on this trip due to all the shore time and this worked well. Furthermore, the embarkation and back to back arrangements went well (nearly everything) the food was wholesome and one would have a good choice of faire - we didn't partake in speciality dining but Windjammer and anytime dining was great. Shore excursions were well organised and everything ran like clockwork (we did have one that we booked ouselves that didn't work out but thats another story). Crew were excellent including our room attendant - John - looked after us and our room was always spotless. The only thing was no shuttle from the ship on two of the stops without cost - seems a little issue but should be addressed. Furthermore, although I love not having the internet maybe having it included in the cost would be a game changer for others - people complained about the cost. Read Less

First time on Indi -We chose the cruise for Norway Fjords Itinerary and were expecting a cold experience which we got ! however no struggle to get a sun bed ! ,the City ports were grey and disappointing so make sure you organise your excursions before you go or you will just wander around towns drinking coffee in Starbucks . On a positive note I found all crew very helpful and friendly and I genuinely did not have an issue the whole cruise , (something I have experienced before on a cruise )food was as expected good choice and quality ,service was a little slow in restaurant allow 1.5hrs + for all 3 courses ,we did My Time which never queued more than a couple of minutes to get a table -tip your waiters every night ! Big queues for breakfast in windjammer due to additional 105 cabins ,almost impossible to get a seat at any venue due to many people on ship (outside of schools term cannot imagine how busy it would be in summer) ,we found the quality and varied nature of entertainment to be fantastic and cruise director Joff an absolute hoot ! ,one issue is though all entertainment stops around 12-12.30 as star lounge cannot be used due to cabins above ,except Night club on deck 14,DJ was very good and did play requests ,no Karaoke venue ,half heated 30-40 minutes in Star Lounge -other guests commented this was removed to accommodate extra cabins ,also no soft-play for under 3's ,one other irritation RCI charging for what is free on NCL -Fish & Chips ,Burgers and nibbles in sports bar . Overall great cruise met loads of interesting people and would go on large RCI ships again but not to Fjords ! I am 3 stone heavier but less tanned than when I left Read Less

We sailed onboard the ship for our 1st ever cruise on the Norway itinerary. We are in our early forties and always wanted to see the Fjords. Upon arrival at Southampton, the whole embarking process was flawless - having travelled by air very frequently over the years, we found the whole process easy, pleasant and was on the ship within 30 minutes of getting out of our car next to the ship. Our experience of the ship was great - the staff were very attentive, helpful and really added to the trip. The decor was nice, we liked the amenities available (although we are not really into sun loungers or pools, so didn't use those facilities). The food standard was very good, the food in the MDR was good (although we generally either went to a speciality restaurant or the Windjammer most evenings). There were numerous bars are onboard with a variety of themes and acts that support them, The entrainment on the whole was good, we enjoyed the shows (Grease and the Ice Shows were the highlights). The street parties on the promenade were also enjoyable. The itinerary was fantastic - we was not disappointed with any of the port stops, although a lot was closed in Bergen (Sunday) however we wanted to go on the Funicular, so spend our time at the top then took a hop on - hop off bus round the area. The 8 nights were nothing short of excellent overall. Our only comment was the cabin whilst clean and maintained well by our cabin steward (special mention to Warner on Deck 7 - fantastic service and a credit to the ship), was showing signs of age (as were most, as the recent refurbishment only appears to have been done to cater for the incoming new cabins). Finally worth noting - many comments have been made on the subject of the changes causing overcrowding. Having not been onboard prior to this trip, it may be noticeable to previous guests, however on our trip we didn't feel this was the case. We did sail the last day of August, so not many children were on the ship compared too the previous several weeks and Norway isn't likely a family choice over the Med or the Canaries, so likely played a part in appearing to be lower in capacity. We liked our trip so much that within 4 days of being back - we have booked again for next year (to the Med - but out of school holidays). If the reviews gave you 2nd thoughts - our advice is give it a try. We are very glad we did. Read Less

For my wife and I this was our very first cruise. We went to the Norwegian Fjords aboard Independence of the Seas. We booked this cruise as we were told that it was a great trip and the Independence had, according to the Royal Caribbean brochure "been given a makeover from stern to bow". This is not true, parts of the ship may have been changed, BUT our room certainly had not seen any makeover. I have included a cabin review in the separate section. We spoke to some other passengers and they indicated there cabins were OK but had not been madeover as they had been led to believe. The boarding process was pretty good but we had to wait to get into the cabin, as this was our first cruise we did not really know what to expect. It became the norm to have to queue to get into the dining room. We were on "anytime" dining and we reserved times for dining for particular times. The food generally is good with service to match, although at times it seemed a little rushed. So we started to ask for a short wait between courses. We complained to guest relations on our return, sending them a number of photographs. At first they were helpful enough. Now, however it is a different matter. For 4 weeks I have been trying by e mail and telephone to get some clarification about an our issue and I can get a verbal statement from them, but they refuse to confirm in writing as "we do not" reply to E mails.

We booked this cruise after seeing advertisements on board our last cruise which shown the ship sailing through all these fjords which looked fantastic. Highlight of the whole cruise was the port of Geranger which was fantastic to sail through to and really nice scenery once there. Regarding the ship, having cruised on this ship many times we thought the recent refurbishments were catering for the younger generation and the inclusion of additional cabins resulting in approximately an additional 400 guests the ship seemed overcrowded on sea days with queues for the windjammer cafe and promenade cafe a common site. Being diamond plus members we felt that now the concierge lounge which used to be on deck 9 has been taken away this has resulted in the diamond lounge on deck 14 was overcrowed most nights. Dining room menu's were not that great a selection and rather bland on some nights. Staff were very good throughout the ship as usual. Our view and talking to other diamond plus guests was that there is too big a gap to pinnacle staus from diamond plus and not much more recogition between diamond and diamond plus status. First time cruisers (and pinnacle members) who purchase a grand suite or above are allowed to use the "Suite Lounge" on deck 14 but not diamond plus members who have spent far more that first time cruisers but are excluded from using this facility. Although we will always sail with RCCL we would'nt come back on Independence again. Read Less

My wife and I chose this cruise as our honeymoon. She has sailed with Royal Caribbean before, but I never had. This was my first experience cruising and overall we both had a great time. Specifically we wanted to go to Norway, somewhere neither of us had visited before, and we both felt seeing five locations in Norway, from the sea, and cruising through some of the longest and most beautiful fjords in the world, would be a great experience. Ultimately it was and we had a wonderful time. We didn't take up any of RC's excursions, because in my opinion you pay through the nose for them. Something similar or the same can easily be booked separately, for much cheaper, which is exactly what we did. We had wonderful plans for each of our five days in port. And we definitely maximised our time in the cities and towns we visited. Across the five days we trekked around beautiful Norwegian cities, went up a funicular and had a lovely walk and canoe on the mountain (and lake) overlooking Bergen, had a thrilling RIB ride around Alseund and the surrounding islands seeing grey seals and lots of sea birds, kayaked along the Geirangefjord to see the magnificent Seven Sisters and Suitor waterfalls up close, and even took some llamas for a walk in Skjolden. Seeing Norway in this way was the main reason why we decided to do this cruise. On the boat, it was a very interesting experience. I have never seen anything that floats that’s quite so massive! The ship was a whopper (but not even the largest in the fleet!). We had a balcony room, which was a great decision; I’m not sure I’d want to downgrade to either an internal room or even an ocean view room if we were to cruise again. It’s amazing being able to pull open your curtains in the morning to see where you are the next day and then be able to have breakfast on the balcony overlooking beautiful scenery. I’d definitely recommend it! However, it was quite confusing when we first arrived on the ship. Even though the boarding process was easy – much easier than dragging yourself and your luggage through an airport terminal – it became a little bit confusing when we were actually on board for the first time. We didn’t really know what to do, where to go, how to find our room, or even what was free or not (food and drink in particular). The staff we spoke with weren’t amazingly knowledgeable or helpful at this point unfortunately. However, there was no rush and nothing to really worry about. And now, in hindsight, if we ever to go cruising again, we’d both be far more familiar with the processes. As it turned out, we basically spent most of the first afternoon (as we boarded at about 3pm) exploring the ship – and there was a lot to explore! The ship is vast – if you think it looked big from the outside, just wait until you get inside and see what it has to offer… basically everything you can imagine. I won’t go into detail on what facilities were available, because you can find that info out pretty easily elsewhere, but there’s a lot to do, which is lovely, albeit quite intimidating. If you were hoping for a quiet holiday – this isn’t really it. Don’t get me wrong, the balcony cabin we had was generally very quiet and peaceful, but the ship itself is busy – there are over 4,000 guests on board, let alone staff, so you are constantly close to people and you can’t really take yourself away from this. Nevertheless, most people were very friendly, particularly the staff, who you’ll be speaking to often. Unfortunately the main downside was the issue(s) we encountered with food. My wife is a vegetarian and is very careful about what she eats. Only on the second night, this time eating in the posher Dining Room (the main alternative is the grab-and-go buffet restaurant called Windjammer), we had issues with food. Although she chose the veggie options for starter and mains (there were no veggie dessert options), she was served a chicken pie! This basically put her off her dinner on that particular night and it was the start of a series of unfortunate incidents which eventually became laughable later in the week. Ultimately the ship does not cater well for people with dietary requirements. Although the staff (Head Waiters in particular) did try to resolve the issues for us, we got the feeling that communication between staff was poor and generally there was a lack of understanding, knowledge and respect amongst waiting staff about dietary requirements. If they can’t cope with or cater for vegetarians, I have no idea how they do with more serious issues like allergies. Overall, the food problems we had throughout the length of our trip would not be enough to stop us from cruising again, and even on the Independence of the Seas with RC. I think given the right price and destination, we would cruise again, as we both had a lovely time. However, the food issues did leave a scar across the trip to some extent, which was a great shame. For people without any dietary requirements, you probably wouldn’t notice any issues, and actually the food quality was generally good (except for bread that was often verging on stale, and poppadums that were bendy). We were unlucky, but with over 4,000 guests on board, there must have been a lot of other people who had dietary requirements and encountered similar issues. For example we met a couple who ate Kosher food, and they had some issues with this as well. We were both shocked at how – in our modern multicultural world, where dietary requirements are far more common, understood and respected – Royal Caribbean were not set up to deal with requests such as these. They’re a massive cruise company, the biggest in the world I believe, transporting thousands of people around the world’s oceans and seas every year, and yet they cannot understand or accommodate dietary needs successfully for all of their paying guests. These holidays aren’t cheap after all. We expected a lot better. Read Less

We chose this cruise to the Baltics with the Royals as we have sailed with them before and chose this part of the world because we had not been before and don t like the weather to be too hot. We had a suite on deck 10 which we were delighted with so quiet and the view from it was amazing - beds were comfortable and had great sleep. Our Cabin attendant was delightful and looked after us all the time - thank you so much Imade Muliana. We had a delux drink package which would recommend and a five night dining package all the restaurants were exceptional - the Windjammer was also very good - no complaints with any of the food. The shows on board were also of an excellent standard - the activities were excellent something for everyone - what an atmosphere it was electric. The excursions - of which we did five were very interesting and organised exceptionally well. You would never know there were thousands of people on the Navigator it was never overcrowded anywhere you went on the ship. All the staff were 5 * nothing too much trouble and always with a smile anytime of the day or night. Our Daughter and son in law accompanied us on this cruise and they had a great time too. The next trip we go on will be to Alaska most definitely. So thank you Navigator of the Seas and her staff for a wonderful safe and exciting journey Read Less

Two couples: We chose this cruise to fulfill a bucket list for both of the ladies. We wanted a Norway itinerary and this 11 day cruise certainly delivered. We flew into Copenhagen 3 days early and enjoyed this city a lot. Stayed at the Andersen Boutique Hotel, only three blocks from the main train station, and it was excellent. Very highly recommended. Be aware that Copenhagen is a bit toward the expensive side, but there is a lot to do ... canal tour and Ho-Ho bus were good, and Tivoli Gardens is not to be missed. Our ship sailed for a day and a half and first port was Geiranger. Beautiful all around, and don't miss a trip to the top of Mt. Dalsnibba. The Fjord Center was very nice and a great place to visit with a nice snack bar inside. Sailed next to Tromso and crossed the Arctic Circle...make sure you get your blue nose...Aquavit is an acquired taste tho. Tromso is a great port town...we took a tour out to the Island of Sommeroy and toured by bus through the area. There is a lot in this largest town north of the Arctic Circle. We liked the beer and the atmosphere at the Old Hallen where the Mack brewery used to be. Next was Honningsvag at the tip of Norway. We toured by bus to two local fishing villages and saw lots of reindeer everywhere, including lounging around in the first village. We had rain, snow, sleet, and bright sunshine all in the space of a three hour tour. Some folks went all the way to the northernmost area, the North Cape and visited the town and the monument there. A long sail south to Alesund and we had a city tour here including a trip to the top of the mountain for a fabulous view at Fjellstua. If you are active ... you can walk up or down the 418 steps from city center to the top. We also had a great tour of the outdoor Sunnemore museum with lots of buildings and boats to explore. This was very nice, and the cafe inside the big museum building has free wi-fi. Next, we loved Flam. Make sure you take the train up and back to Myrdal. The train was packed, so make sure you get a ticket in advance. There is a local brewery right next to the cruise dock and the beer is excellent...well worth the price. (There is a LOT of tax on alcohol in Norway.) Our final stop was Bergen. We did a tour to see the highlights of the area and were dropped off at Bryggen, or the old wharf area of town. Do not miss the funicular to the top of Mt. Floyen. On the harbor is the outdoor fish market, under red tents. There is also a large building there with the tourist info center of the second floor and several fish markets/restaurants on the first floor. If you like seafood ... eat at the outdoor market ... they have a bit of everything there. We took all shore excursions from the ship, but many towns had Ho-Ho bus tours and fjord cruises that you can get locally, at a cheaper price. Be advised that if more than one ship is in port...it can be crowded and trips can be hard to book. We enjoyed our RC cruise ... it is not the best we've had, or the worst. Food was good, service was mostly excellent, with one glaring dining room exception, and our cabin steward was superb. Thanks so much Terri from Trinidad/Tobago. Thanks to Jouta, Jay, and Arleen, who were great wait staff. Ask for Rachael, Jennifer or LeAnne (crazy Canadians) who work with the shore excursions group. On sea days .. you can get a $2.00 mimosa from 12:00 to 1:00 pm in the Casino bar. This is the best deal on the ship. (They will do a peach bellini or cranberry mimosa too for the same price.) Good bartenders here. We did not try any of the for fee themed restaurants...thought they were overpriced, and besides, the main dining room food was very good. The Windjammer Cafe was good, but seating at times can be a hassle when they are busy. The Park Cafe around the pool was good, but watch their dining hours. There is no24 hour food on the ship, except room service and there is a delivery charge at all times except if you order from the Continental breakfast side of the menu. On our other cruises, room service was free. Laundry on board is very expensive and there is no self-serve facilities. Entertainment was good in the main theater about half the time. The musicians in the Centrum and the lounges were excellent. The onboard orchestra was excellent. We enjoyed the Vibes Nation duo the most. We would do a RC cruise again, for the itinerary...there was no WOW that would make us choose RC just for the fact thatit is RC. There were many little things that bothered us at times, and we cruise to enjoythe trip, not to be annoyed by little things. Read Less

We choose this cruise because we wanted to see the beautiful Norwegian fjord landscapes. We also did touring and sightseeing before and after the cruise in Copenhagen and in the Danish countryside. The ship though older, was beautiful, clean and well maintained. Only the cabins (sofa and furniture) show the age of the ship. All of the common areas were beautiful, well-cared for and looked like new. We sailed a few years ago on both the Celebrity Solstice and the Regal Princess when they were brand new, and neither were the equal of the Serenade of the Seas. We loved this ship. The cabins were comfortable, with plenty of storage space. The bed, though hard, was comfortable. The food in both the dining room and the buffet was good to excellent. Service by our room steward, Fostor, and our dining room waiter and assistant waiter, Marie and Miguel, was impeccable. The ship's singers were mediocre to poor and the dancers were good. The entertainment that was brought onto the ship though, was excellent. The irish tenors, the big band singer (sorry, forgot his name) and the Beatles group were all fabulous and provided the best shows we have ever seen on a cruise. We also enjoyed the magic show. The ports were all incredible. The fjords, sailing into both Geiranger and Flam were equally beautiful, green, waterfalls, etc. We rented a car in Geiranger and drove out into the country side for breathtaking views. We did a fjord boat trip in Flam with spectacular views, but the boat was very crowded and we didn't get good seats so that experience was less than optimal. Honningsvag and the Nordkapp, though the arctic landscape is barren, were really scenic. (Be sure to take the bus into the Nordkapp.) We did sightseeing on our own in all of the other ports and enjoyed each of them. The weather was cold and windy and we didn't enjoy our balcony as much as we have on past cruises. We did love having the balcony for sailing into and out of the fjords in both Flam and Gerainger. We viewed the sail-in to Flam from the front of the ship as well, which was spectacular. Overall, this is a cruise and a ship that I would highly recommend. Read Less

My sister and I took this cruise because our family came over to Minnesota from Norway. Our great grandfather was from Alesund so we wanted to see what the country was like. I know why they chose Minnesota as below the arctic circle it looks like Minnesota. Above the Arctic Circle it is a vast wilderness, not many people, no trees, and cold, but interesting to visit once. We flew in to Copenhagen a day early to try to adjust to the time change. Stayed at the Radisson Park Inn about 15 minutes from the airport. It was 90 that day, the warmest day of our entire trip. It snowed twice while we were in Norway. We boarded the ship on Sunday, waited about 15 minutes to embark, and since it was almost 1:00 we went to our floor, cabin 9066 and waited for a few minutes and were allowed in. We immediately met Neuman our cabin steward who was great the entire trip. We did a back to back and this was the first leg. The second was a Baltic cruise. Will write another review for that. We cruised Monday and arrived in Geiranger Tuesday. We got off and boarded a Hop On Hop Off bus and toured the town. We purchased our passes on line with Stromma for all our Hop On Hop Off rides, you get a discount and take 3 the fourth is free. Wednesday we cruised the arctic circle. Thursday we arrived in Tromso and took a ship tour Highlights of Tromso, saw the Arctic Cathedral, explored the museum and took a cable car up 1,350 feet to see a great view of the area. It snowed at the top of the cable car. The next day we were in Honningsvag and took the Our Northernmost Life Perleporten, two hour guided walking tour. This is the northernmost mainland point at 71 degrees of the world, no trees but lots of rock. The next day we cruised and Sunday we arrived in Alesund. We did the Hop on Hop Off bus here and were able to see the entire city of our ancestor. Monday we arriced in flam, Norway. We took the Flam Railway and it was absolutely fabulous. The scenery was amazing and the train ride was fun. Snow-capped peaks, spectacular rivers, ravines and falls. We had a snack at the top at the Vatnahalsen Hotel of Norweigian waffles. There are lots of fjords to see, water falls and beautiful scenery all along the trip. In Bergen and again took the Hop On Hop Off Bus and toured the town. Wednesday we cruised and were back to Copenhagen on Thursday. Since we were on a back to back we got off the ship and toured Copenhagen on the Hop On Hop Off bus. We did see the shows on the ship, they were okay, the entire singers and dancers were getting off the ship so they lacked energy. The casino was busy and one woman hit the $10,000 jackpot on the first night so that was interesting. We did not disembark in Copenhagen as we were on the b2b which will end in Sweden. the food was good, you could always find something to eat, we did the Mystery dinner which was fun and it was held in Giovannis, the food was very good there. We often ate lunch in the Solarium after our touring, ate in the Windjammer for breakfast, the waffles were amazing. Our table mates in the main dining room were a blast for we enjoyed all our dinners there. This was a very different type of cruise as it was cold and daylight most of the time, not much sun and the pool was only open two times up stairs. The solarium was open all the time. Read Less

We wanted to visit the Norwegian Fjords...we weren't let down...all ports were excellent, however, cruising Geiranger Fjord, (known as the pearl of Norwegian Fjords), in magnificent weather, in a (relatively) large cruise ship certainly takes some beating? All four ports on this cruise, Stavanger, Bergan, Alesund and of course Geiranger offered something different...a trip along Lyse Fjord with its dramatic cliffs plus the dizzying sight of Pulpit Rock, is a must in Stavanger. Bergen, one time capital of Norway and a World Heritage city, does not fail to live up to the images one sees of its quaint waterfront. Bergen was also the home of Norways most famous composer Edvard Grieg. Alesund presents some fantastic Art Nouveau buildings, all reconstructed following a fire in 1904 that destroyed the town. Then, Geiranger, at the head of the Fjord, a village of around 200, surrounded by snow capped mountains, presents a picture post card image, not to mention the views from Flydalsjuvet and Eagle's Bend lookouts, located both South and North respectively. Life on board the ship was not diminished by the magnificent scenery it took us to. Serenade falls under the Radiance class of ships in the RC fleet, so does not boast 'mega-class'. It has 890 crew to cater for the the approximately 2490 passengers this equates to less than 3 passenger per crew member, so finding someone to assist is not a problem. We opted for 'my time' dining for dinner in the main dining room and apart from two evenings we were seated in an area serviced by an exceptional head waiter, his rapport with us and everyone else was second to none. Breakfast and lunch we opted for the buffet or Park cafe. One could never go hungry no matter how fussy an eater you are. Entertainment was 1st class, we attended several performances. We also enjoyed the many trivia games they had. We occupied a sea view balcony cabin, it was more than adequate for our needs, well kept by our cabin attendant. A nice touch are the folded towel animals left each evening If you take only one cruise...make it this...you won't be disappointed. Read Less

My husband and I picked this cruise as a compromise for our honeymoon and it turned out absolutely amazing! We arrived in Copenhagen on Thursday afternoon and had Thursday, Friday and Saturday to explore which was probably the minimum amount of time I would suggest in Copenhagen. It's such a beautiful city with so much history. We stayed at the Crowne Plaza which is a quick trip from the airport and 5 minute walk from the metro station with easy access to the downtown area which was perfect for us. They also offer a shuttle to the cruise port for a reasonable fee. Embarkation would be the only really negative I have for this cruise. Royal Caribbean only offered priority boarding for Diamond members and above at this port, this was not advertised anywhere and in fact I had received an email 1 week prior to sailing confirming this benefit. My husband and I booked a spa appointment for the day we boarded the ship and arrived at the port 2 hours before the appointment thinking it would be more than enough time but due to the fact we had to board in the general line it took quite some time and we were delayed getting to our appointment. Once we got on the ship everything else was great! It was my first time on a smaller ship and I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but I wasn't disappointed at all. Our cabin was ready promptly at 1pm so we were able to rush there to drop our stuff before heading to our spa appointment. Once we returned from that our luggage was waiting outside our room so we were able to shower before heading out to enjoy the set sail activities after the muster drill. The service aboard was great as with all the Royal cruises we've experienced. Everyone we encountered went out of their way to make sure that we had everything we needed. It was our first experience with My Time Dining and we really enjoyed it. I had made our reservations about a week before we boarded the ship on the Cruise Planner, we did change our time one evening after we already boarded it and wasn't a problem. On the 2nd day we asked the host about getting a table along the window so we could enjoy the beautiful scenery while we dined. He was a little hesitant at first, but once we explained we absolutely didn't mind waiting until one opened up it wasn't a problem getting a table by the window every night. We never waited more than 15-20 minutes. All of the ports were absolutely BEAUTIFUL!! Our first was Stavanger, which we chose to do the Pulpit Rock Hike. This was very difficult but extremely rewarding once you reached the top. My husband and I weren't show if Royal was being over careful by all the warnings about the strenuous nature of the hike but they weren't so I would definitely take caution booking this excursion if you're not prepared to hike up/down a mountain for at least 4 hours in all weather. The 2nd port was Bergen and it was probably our favorite port. We did a city tour and then our last stop was at the Ice Bar which was really neat to see. After this tour we had lots of time to explore the city on our own, grab lunch in the outdoor fish market and just enjoy the great weather we had! My suggestion for this port would be that you can easily do the Ice Bar on your own, it's a nice walk from the dock and you can enjoy the fish market on the way. We ended up not boarding the bus back to the dock and left from there on our own exploring. The 3rd port was Alesund. I would have to say this was our least favorite port which was a little sad since we had the longest time here. Our boating trip was canceled about a week before departure for an unknown reason. We booked the Sugar Top Hike last minute which was really neat and had beautiful views at the top once the weather cleared up a bit. Afterwards we had about 8 hours to explore the city. I'm not sure if we missed anything but not a lot of restaurants or places weren't open for some reason and since our excursion changed shortly before we departed we unfortunately didn't do a lot of research on what else there was to do. It was still beautiful and we enjoyed everything! The last port was Gerainger which is breathtaking!! I would highly suggest booking some sort of excursion or activity while in this port. It is a very small town and not much to do if you don't have anything planned. We booked the Storeseterfossen waterfall hike and Westeras Farm visit which was very enjoyable. I would also caution that this is not as leisurely of a hike as it was worded in the description from Royal Caribbean. There was quite a few people in our group that either didn't make it to the top or had some trouble. Getting off the ship was very easy for us!! We took advantage of the Crown and Anchor lounge to debark and walked off the ship and had our luggage within 10 minutes. I would highly suggest booking the ships transfers to the airport or making sure you have some sort of transportation from the cruise ship terminal in advance. The port is quite a distance from the city center and the taxi line was EXTREMELY long. We booked the ships transfers which was great. The only downfall is they dropped us off in the domestic terminal and we had to drag our luggage over to the international terminal. Overall I would suggest this cruise to anyone! The ports were amazing, the service aboard was amazing and it was the perfect mix of exploring when we in ports to having time to relax while aboard the ship. It was definitely a different vibe from the Caribbean cruises I've been on before but we really enjoyed it and already booked a Baltic cruise for next summer! Read Less

Used the ship because of the Norway itinerary, Fjords were grand. WE left from Copenhagen and visited Bergen, Geirenger, Alesune and Stavenger. We took small boat tours on two of the fjords. . The food was average. Breakfast just OK. Dinner entrees were pretty good. The service was a bit better. Drink prices were about average with a dollar off draft beer for an hour each day. The ship was clean and easy to navigate. The clientele was suspect. Tattoos and poorly dressed. I guess there are standards but they are evidently not enforced. Jeans were worn everywhere and in all dining venues. It's not like it used to be. I hate having things for sale constantly pushed in my face as done on this cruise. Back to Oceania for this cruiser. I would not sail on this ship again and perhaps not even on RCL. We picked itinerary over cruise line. Read Less

Returned to RCL after a few years and still enjoyed it. The one change was a charge for room service, which we didn't need, although breakfast in the cabin is brought for free. The food we had, was great. Only had 2 shore excursions - one was late starting but we eventually did see everything we were promised; I got the impression that maybe the guide wasn't made aware of what we had been promised - this was Kristiansand. The tour of Skagen was excellent - a good guide and good content. Lovely ship - some items of furniture seemed a little worn , but it didn't interfere with our enjoyment! Cabin was fine - very comfortable, and well cared for by Augustine! Deck 8. Entertainment was variable, but that might be a matter of taste; Toni Warne and the mind-reading comedian were very good. Cruise director, Joff Eaton (?) is a real character - 1 of the best 2 cruise directors I've come across! Overall, we had a great time - can't say fairer than that! Would be nice if the shore excursions weren't quite so pricey! Read Less

Visiting the Norwegian Fjords was always on our bucket list and this cruise fit the timeframe we wanted to go and the ports we wanted to see. While the ship is older it is well maintained and very clean. The stateroom with a balcony had sufficient storage, comfortable bed and a nice couch. Staff overall were very friendly but I did have an issue with the shore excursion staff where there was a problem with a tour I booked, they switched my time from an PM tour to a AM tour. Even though I had a copy of the booking from their website, they insisted the time change was made fault, very rude. Entertainment was particularly poor. The Royal Caribbean singers did not sing well, especially the male leads who were overpowered by the female singers. The other options were just bland, magician, singing groups were just OK. The acrobatic couple were entertaining as was the juggling brothers. They had a number of issues in the Windjammer, their buffet dining venue. At least three separate times, they ran out of plates and silverware. People were waiting to eat and the poor person bringing out the utensils was almost attacked to get them. They also had an issue in not enough seating, especially on sea days. This happened early or late in their hours. If they kept the dining room open later, this might alleviate this issue. It sometimes took over 10 minutes to find a table and I saw people eating standing up. We had late seating and the waiter and assistant could not have been nicer or more attentive. The food overall was good in the main dining room and when there was an issue, they promptly corrected it. I find Royal Caribbean has cut down on enrichment programs. The options of things to do at sea days was very limited. This is our third Royal Caribbean cruise, on three different ships, and it is a ship I would not want to travel again. Read Less

Serenade of the Seas is an 18 year old ship that was the queen of the fleet when first launched but is now showing her age. We were told she is going to go through dry dock and updating in December of this year. Nothing about this Royal Caribbean Norway Fjords cruise was sub-standard or poor. Likewise, aside from visiting Geiranger, was outstanding on this cruise. This outside balcony cabin was clean and the same as every other outside balcony cabin I have had (4 total). Only cabin comment is that deck 6,7 & 8 amidships is recessed and over the life boats so you do not look straight down to the sea. Same deck further forward or aft would be more desireable. I have learned that early, or late dining is desirable over "my time" dining because you keep the same table for every evening meal along with the same waiter and you don't have to wait for a table for each meal.If you miss the start time they are required to give you the next "my time" table. We were told that the new Royal Caribbean Ships will all be "My time" dining and eventually so will every ship in the Royal Caribbean fleet. Evening shows were very good to excellent. No complaints. Service was excellent in every way. This cruise started in Copenhagen stopping in Stavanger, Bergen, Alesund and Geiranger. If your goal is to get a good overview of Norway, this schedule is outstanding. If it is to see fjords only Bergen and Geiranger are classic fjord cities. And Bergen requires an excursion to actually get into the fjord. Geiranger however, is outstanding! Up a 50 mile fjord to the end of the fjord to a small town surrounded by 3,000 foot cliffs with hundreds of free falling water falls. Truly a bucket list experience. Read Less

Picked this cruise to see some fantastic sights and scenery. It did not disappoint. On board service was excellent from stateroom staff to bar staff to dining room staff. Only disappointment was when ee did tour of ship we were not allowed on bridge due to a yellow weather alert. But shortly afterwards captain was in the centurim signing tee shirts for wildlife association. We did receive a partial refund but was looking forward to seeing bridge area. Ports of call were excellent and last port Geiranger was a sight to behold. Was on deck at 5am as we sailed up Fjord. Overall excellent cruise. Two entainers on ship were also excellent. Jack on guitar in the crown and castle pub and Lyndon on the piano in schooners. Did not use any of the ship excursions as very expensive. Every port had a "hop on hop off" bus port side which was much better value. Read Less

I felt Royal is trying to sell you something wherever you turn your head. First, room attendant tells me he doesn't provide toothpaste but I could buy at the ship's shop! Their enrichment activities are opportunity to sell you something, their seminar conclude by selling you on some stuff as well. And when there is nothing to sell, they encourage you to buy drinks from the bar at every organized event. The mos OUTRAGEOUS of all is water. You are provided with the very expensive Eivan water in your room. And every station has a sing saying refilling water bottles is not allowed for "health reason"! Health of their revenue line that is. However I enjoyed my time at this trip. You get used to the selling after day 2. Their waiters services was excellent, even though the food was not that good. There's plenty of food, it would be hard to go hungry. The nightly entertainment shows were very enjoyable. A lot of live music which is always nice. The port, Norwegian fjords, were very beautiful. Unfortunately for us, our day at Geiranger was foggy as hell we saw no views whatsoever. It sucked. But we were lucky on 2 other days and the views were breathtaking. Read Less

Boarding process and Disembarkation were both Excellent Ship: Bit tired looking and didn't really have a wow factor. Probably not helped by weather being poor and things look less well in the rain Entertainment: Easily poorest we ever encountered. Only the Michael Buble, Juggler and Ice Show impressed. Other shows very disappointing Windjammer: OK at best. Nearly always crowded and the level of wastage by passengers was really very high. Food fairly varied but compared with other buffets it definitely didn't stand out Sapphire: Most of the staff were excellent. Food better than our previous RC cruise. We didn't go in order to just eat (like some!) so found Sapphire good, if unexceptional. Fellow Cruisers: Very mixed crowd. Mostly British but also Americans, Irish, Indians etc. At risk of coming across as snobbish there were far too many that resembled football supporters with their dress sense, tattoos, permanently parked with beer in hand etc. etc. In fairness we didn't come across any drunkenness or anti social behaviour during the trip. For what it is worth it also seemed that there was a disproportionate number of grossly obese people on board. Hygiene: OK however hand santisers were often empty. I mentioned that one at entrance to gym was empty to a staff member and 4 hours later it was still empty. I could go on, and on but truth is that experience was really just mediocre and accordingly I wouldn't recommend Navigator of the Seas to anyone nor will I cruise on it again Read Less

Many previous reviews have been extremely negative and in some cases completely unfair, however each passenger has a different experience or point of view. Thankfully I have come off the ship having had a fantastic weeks cruise in Norway. Firstly this was a very different cruise to a 14 night Med cruise so no sun bed issues (we were not blessed with sunshine) and the clientele probably differ to the sun seekers. My biggest concern was the complaints of badly behaved kids but I think there were a lot less kids on this cruise and I witnessed no bad behavior at all. The other big complaint is that the ship is run down but to be honest I disagree. I first sailed the Navigator in 2007 and it’s just as nice now as it was then. Check in was quick and smooth and we were on the ship by midday. I was expecting a bit of madness in the Windjammer that day and that’s exactly what I got, however we managed to get a table fairly quickly and was able to escape to the cabin at 1330hrs. Our cabin was one of the new additional balcony cabins on deck 12 and was everything I expected. The bed was comfy, had a nice size balcony and was spotlessly clean. Location was great for the Solarium, spa, pool area, gym and bar. I do have a few negatives though. On the first night we had high wind and were woken about 3am to the clanging of sunbeds being tossed around above us. Quick stop at the guest relations desk the next morning and they had them piled up and secured by that afternoon. Very impressed by the speedy action!! The other problem was the plumbing, on three occasions the flush stopped working and one morning we had yellow water coming out of the taps and shower… lovely! Also walls are paper thin, so I got to know the people either side of us better than I would have liked! Food was generally very good and we mainly used the MDR for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Service was always excellent. Also great selection of items in the Café Promenade including lots of pic nic type goodies like scotch eggs and pork pies, obviously put on for us Brits! Entertainment was mostly excellent. Loved the Michael Bouble tribute and Classical Graffiti but the others were not as good (but not bad either). Missed the 70s party on the Royal Promenade but the Brit pop one was fun. We loved doing there various quizzes in the Star Lounge and Scooner.. great fun!! Ice show was AMAZING and much better than the show on the Allure last year. Overall it was a fantastic week and the crew on this ship really work damn hard. I never encountered rude staff, bad food or a tired ship. I would sail the Navigator anyday! Tips – 1) Take your own shower gel/shampoo and hand wash. RCL give you the absolute basics. 2) Kettles and teabags are provided in the room but if you like coffee take a small jar of instant. Apparently the free coffee on board is vile. Thankfully I don’t touch the stuff. 3) Avoid the Windjammer on sea days and stick to the MDR for breakfast or lunch. 4) DO NOT purchase RCL excursion’s. A little research and pre planning will save you £££. We got our fingers burnt last year on the Allure ! Read Less

This was our second trip on Navigator of the Seas. We wanted to do a Norwegian Fjords cruise and this was one of two options offered by Royal Caribbean. Embarkation went very smoothly. We were allocated inside cabin 3029 which was located where the old Disco would have been - Sabor was above us. It is a quiet location (though we occasionally could hear someone next door snoring!) and we had no problems; plenty of storage space for us - comfortable beds and good air conditioning (we like a cool room). We had a kettle in the cabin and the steward (whom we only saw on the first night that we arrived) kept replenishing milk and tea (no coffee provided). The one thing that I would state categorically is that the crew are incredibly hard working and really do want you to have a good holiday. One complaint I have is lack of seating. After dinner or a show, it was always a problem to find somewhere to sit. Entertainment: The Royal Caribbean Orchestra are excellent, the singers, dancers and musicians were fine and the Ice Dancing show was very professional but overall the other acts, with the exception of the Michael Buble tribute, were not of the usual standard. The singer in the Two Poets Pub, Paul Sainsbury, was very good but by the end of a week became quite repetitive. The pianist David Curtis, in the Schooner bar was a good musician and singer but spoiled my enjoyment of the music by constantly ad-libbing and adding his own (questionable) twists such as passing remarks on unsuspecting people passing by. What he failed to realise is that he made fun of someone who is possibly in the early stages of dementia by singing "does he know where he's going to?" when he became disoriented and I would urge him to think twice in the future before getting cheap laughs at the expense of vulnerable people. Food: The Windjammer on this ship was a bit disappointing and very crowded - indeed all areas of the ship felt crowded! Breakfast was okay (I only take oatmeal but there was never any suitable fresh fruit to add to it). I struggled to get decent ingredients for a basic salad at lunch times. The main dining room was fine, the wait staff were slow at times but overall good - the kitchen staff are amazing - the fact that they manage to serve up consistently good meals is fantastic. Johnny Rockets was great. We used the hop on hop off buses in Bergen and Stavanger and we booked the Flam railway independently as we find the RCI excursions to be extremely overpriced. Overall we really enjoyed ourselves (despite the rain!) and the negative bits wouldn't put us off travelling with RCI (we have another 3 cruises booked) - hopefully the next ones will be as good as our previous one.

I was very impressed by how smoothly embarkation at Southampton went, we were on Navigator within 30 minutes. I had never cruised with RC before, previously I'd used Celebrity, however I chose RC for the ports they were visiting. I found the ship extremely busy, especially Windjammer, it didn't matter what time of the day I visited finding a table was very difficult if not impossible on some occasions. You definately had to find a table and leave someone sitting there whilst selecting your food. Most of the tables needed a good clean and we never sat at a table that didn't have food on the floor underneath the table, we weren't impressed and tried other places to eat rather than use Windjammer. There was a large selection of food but the same or very similar food appeared everyday. My tip would be to have your breakfast, lunch & dinner in The Sapphire Dining Room, much more civilised. However the food was dissapointing, more pub food than fine dining. I wouldn't expect to find pies, fish & chips & quiche on the menu in MDR. The bar areas didn't have enough seats for all the passengers who wanted to sit down, we were queuing for a table most nights. The bars were all very short staffed with few staff taking orders at tables for most of the evening, the staff that worked in the bars were all quite surly, they very obviously didn't enjoy their jobs and weren't very "people friendly". Also noticed a smoky smell in the bar which was drifting in from The Casino which was a "smoking area". There aren't enough toilets in the public areas on Navigator, only 4 ladies toilets on Deck 4 outside MDR and none on Deck 3. All the public toilets were filthy with wet floors, toilet paper on the floors and doors that didn't always lock, not very pleasant when wearing long dresses, we resorted to going back to our cabins to use the bathroom. We enjoyed the Ice Show, it was very professional, but the rest of the entertainment in the theatre was very amateur. How can a show that is Music from Broadway have 35 minutes of music that no one recognised, the last 10 minutes was ABBA and everyone sung along! The art on the ship is unusual, lots of glass in the public areas which was lovely. We enjoyed the ports of call including Bergen, Stavanger, Flam & Skjolden despite the fact we had rain at every port of call! The cabin steward and our waiter in MDR were excellent, but they were the exceptions. Navigator looked tired in a lot of areas and was very dissapointing after the standards we are used to on Celebrity, I won't be cruising with RC again Read Less
