Just The Facts
Ship: Navigator of the Seas
Sailing: December 14-December 20, 2014
Captain: Frank Martinsen
Cruise Director:John Perry
I am cruising as a solo and this is my 18th Royal Caribbean cruise and second on the beautiful Navigator of the Seas although this is my 5th cruise with Captain Frank. I had booked this cruise very early in order to get our favorite aft cabin on deck seven, but when DW decided not to sail I changed the booking to a solo with a category J interior cabin with the new virtual balcony display.

I had cabin 1639 an interior port side near the aft elevators. Of course the unique feature that I have mentioned several times is the Virtual Balcony, I really liked it. The room is a standard size interior with: key pad safe, hair dryer, refrigerator, lounge chair & ottoman, full chair at vanity/desk, nice sliding shower door, and great lighting. The second great feature was the flat screen TV that could be adjusted to view from anywhere in the room. Very well designed. The air conditioning & water pressure worked well, but I’m glad I brought my personal cabin fan for circulation.
Overall very good and my individual crew contacts such as cabin steward and waiters were better than my cruise in March. I enjoyed the Cruise Director and the Activity Director’s morning show. I was very pleased with my cabin steward and dining room team.
My dining room (after 1st night) was the Sapphire Dining Room, deck three the lower level of the 3 level restaurant. The waiters were nice and service was good. The bread and appetizers were very good, and you can order the Escargot, Cesar Salad, Shrimp Cocktail, or NY Strip Steak every night. The Windjammer is also a very good to eat, the quality of food was excellent. It’s the best food buffet at sea IMHO. Room service was always good and prompt averaging 30 minutes for delivery. Johnny Rockets was a good alternative for lunch or afternoon snack. Lunch in the Sapphire Dining Room has the same menu each day with one special item that does change daily. There are several ice crème and yogurt machines.
