Roomy, nice color scheme. Had an Illy espresso maker but didn't use it. :-(
Shower is a bit small, but has great water pressure and stable temperature. Nice sized deck. Flat screen TV is nice, and the bed is real comfortable. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was great. New carpet and lots of room. Bathroom a bit dated but still very functional. Air conditioning worked very well. Room well maintained by staff each day.
We didn't have to ask them twice for anything. Read entire member review >>
We had been a little concerned about some of the reviews mentioning vibration on the Navigator. We honestly did not feel this even though we did have some days of heavy seas.
The only thing we did notice was that during the storms we had on 2 nights, our particular cabin seemed to have a creaking / rubbing noise in its wall/ceiling area above the bed head - no one else we spoke to had the same issue though. Looking at the deck plans it seems that our suite, 811, is on what looks to be a ship section end point so we are thinking that perhaps that is what the issue was - it was fine on normal sea days - only happened during the storms. And such things can happen in storms anywhere really.
The next cabins along did not have it though - so its's worth noting, if you can choose another, perhaps that would be a good idea.
We are cruising again on the Navigator in August and have chosen a different suite location - same category but a little more mid-ship, so will report back again. Read entire member review >>
We were greeted with chilled bottle of Brut and two glasses for our departure as we entered the suite. The cabin has a small refrigerator filled with waters and a selection of beers. The ship will also provide your choice if two 750 ml bottles of wine or a bottle of spirits for your suite at no charge.
The suite was very spacious, with a very large bathroom with shower and tub. The closet was a walk-in style with a double row of hangers, a chest with drawers and shelves and a built in safe. There was a wide variety of lighting for every conceivable need. The cabling can be portioned off in three ways by drawing heavy insulated curtains. This allows viewing a movie (300 are available at no charge) without disturbing your partner if they wish to sleep. Also the bathroom and closet are can also be partitioned off as well.
Very smooth sailing in this cabin; I would have to open the curtains to the balcony to look out at the sea to see if we were moving. During very heavy seas 10-12 feet the ship would slowly rotate from center to port back to center and then to starboard, kind of like a cradle.
There are at least three laundry areas which are comprised of two washers and two dryers. An automatic into the washer soap dispenser is there but I brought my own soap pods just in case. There is also a nice iron and ironing board in each laundry area. This is provided at no cost. If you prefer the ship’s crew will do your laundry for a fee. Read entire member review >>
Large, King bed, small sofa and table with 2 chairs. Lots of storage. Walk-in closet with safe., large bathroom with separate deep tub and shower stall. Robes provided. Veranda has 2 chairs. Pillows smelled bad. Room furnishings and crpet are worn, needs refurbishing. Cabin steward was wonderful. Read entire member review >>
Suite 850 is the perfect location near mid-ship and not too high so the ships movement/vibrations are not really felt. Our friends occupied suite 852 and the ship's engineering staff came and removed the balcony divider between our two balconies. The beds are dreamy as are the bed linens. Having a stand-up shower as well as separate tub was a big plus. Our walk-in closet complete with built-in chest was huge and allowed us to hang all of our clothes and put everything away nicely. No clutter. On several occasions we had chilled champagne and cheese platter delivered to our room. No they do not offer a charcuterie plate unfortunately. In-suite dining is a wonderful option as the waitstaff will serve by course. The air conditioning worked as advertised and having both a desk area as well as vanity was also a big plus. Our bar/refrigerator was stocked daily with sodas and beer as well as spirits. The Illy espresso machine was a nice plus each morning. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was excellent. Great location - mid ship, lower deck. This was especially important with the rough seas and heavy winds we had during this trip. I did not think this ship was handling the weather well at all, but at least it was somewhat peaceful in our cabin. Read entire member review >>
Lots of noise beside the ventilation exhaust on deck 8 so could not use the balcony. Beware 855 and across the the corridor. Aft is very noisy in heavy seas. Otherwise lots of room, walk-in closet, full bath, excellent service. Read entire member review >>
Suite 827 is just front of mid-ship. The good: it's near the forward bank of elevators but you can't hear the elevators. The bad: it's adjacent to the laundrette, and there is a crew entrance/exit across the hall, so you will hear LOTS of doors opening and closing, especially in the morning.

The suites are huge. The walk-in closet and the nearly standard sized bathroom were just great. Forward cabin was quiet and there was a laundry room at the end of the hallway. Read entire member review >>
