Navigator Of The Seas Review

Review of Navigator Of The Seas

Launched in 2002, Navigator of the Seas is the 4th Voyager-class Royal Caribbean ship, together with Adventure OTS, Explorer OTS, Mariner OTS and Voyager OTS.

History - construction and ownership

Royal Caribbean International (RCI) is a US company, trademarked brand, and subsidiary owned by Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd (RCCL, shipowner). RCI was established in 1968 and currently has over 1/5 of the worldwide cruise market. RCI also has RCCL's largest fleet as both numbers of vessels and GT tonnage (ship sizes and capacities). All Royal Caribbean liners have names ending with "of the Seas".

Navigator Of The Seas cruise ship (Royal Caribbean)

The 139,570-ton, 3,114-passenger cruise ship Navigator of the Seas, like her sister ships, sports some of cruise industry's most wonderful facilities: a rock-climbing wall, ice-skating rink, mall-like indoor promenade, basketball court, and in-line skating track.

As a second generation (modified) Voyager-class ship, Navigator has a larger Windjammer buffet area with the Asian "Jade" and "The Plaza" bar. The first generation Voyager-class ships metal-walled balconies are here replaced with glass railings. Navigator OTS features more glass exteriors, wine bar, expanded youth amenities, Plaza Bar zone (with dining venues / both complimentary and at a fee), first at sea Latin Jazz Bar, first at sea Ben and Jerry's ice-cream parlor. Later, RCI spread these concepts fleetwide.

Cruise itinerary program

Navigator of the Seas itinerary program is based on 7-day Western Caribbean cruises from Galveston TX, and to Western and Eastern Caribbean from Fort Lauderdale FL. Feature port destinations include Cozumel Mexico, Jamaica, Belize, Puerto Rico, Grand Cayman and Labadee (Royal Caribbean's Haiti private island resort).

Cabins

Navigator Of The Seas has a total of 1636 cabins (of which 115 Suites, 638 Balcony rooms) in 30 grades. Most of the Navigator of the Seas staterooms are 150-sq.foot insides (499). Almost 50% of ship's accommodations have private balcony views. 27 are the wheelchair-accessible rooms. Navigator also features 81 Virtual Balcony rooms. The largest aboard Navigator of the Seas is the Royal Suite (1335 ft2 - more than 120 m2!).

Shipboard dining options - Food and Drinks

Eating options aboard Navigator of the Seas were expanded during ship's 2014 refurbishment. The line added Sabor - a Mexican restaurant, and Izumi Japanese Cuisine - Asian-fusion eatery. The Italian Portofino was replaced with a new family-style option called Giovanni's Table. Longtime Royal Caribbean's steakhouse Chops Grille features a revamped menu including premium steak options. The 3-level main dining room was consolidated under one name, the Sapphire and redesigned - now decorated in golds and whites, with a grand staircase, dark carpeting, white linens, and a dramatic chandelier. Reservations are recommended for the speciality restaurants. Guests can make reservations online (up to 4 days prior to the cruise) for parties of up to 6, or once onboard at reservation tables outside the Windjammer buffet, by calling guest services or at the restaurants themselves.

At night, Navigator of the Seas offers traditional-style productions (singing and dancing shows) presented in The Royal Theatre. Bar venues offer various musical performances aimed to please everybody at any time with classical guitar, jazz, and country. Beyond the usual, where this cruise vessel excels is unique, like Studio B ice rink which hosts "Ice Dancing" - worth the effort to get a ticket (free of charge but the venue is tiny, so tickets are limited). The Royal Promenade on some nights comes alive with street entertainment. New to the ship after the refurbishment is the signature R Bar, which replaced the Champagne Bar located on Deck 5, outside the Promenade. This is a very popular gathering spot for pre- and post-dinner exotic cocktails, mixed by using various techniques.
