Royal Caribbean Navigator of the Seas
Navigator of the Seas, a Royal Caribbean Voyager-class ship, is a vibrant city at sea! From the moment you step on to Main Street, I mean, the Royal Promenade, you can feel the energy. Between two multi story atriums, this bright corridor is lined with shops, bars, a café and an ice cream counter that serves Ben and Jerry’s. The windows that look down onto the area are Promenade cabins, and from the seat nestled under that window, guests can people watch or catch an evening parade. Yet, as amazing as this Promenade is, there is so much more to experience on the Navigator!
Gone are the days when cruising was considered a sedate vacation. Voyager-class ships give guests the choice to be as busy as they’d like, or just sit back for some well deserved rest and relaxation. The sports deck is a hub of activity. There is mini golf, golf simulators, in-line skating, rock climbing, full court basketball and volleyball. Runners will appreciate the jogging track and there’s a state-of-the-art fitness center for those that prefer a traditional workout. It’s a good thing that the full service day spa offers a variety of services to tend to those over worked muscles!
There are two outdoor pools, one solarium pool, six hot tubs and a children’s play area with pools and slides called Adventure Beach. Lounge chairs are in abundance, both surrounding the pools and a distance away from the commotion. The cruise director and staff engage guests in crazy water games, hairy leg contests, belly flop competitions and other foolish activities that are lots of fun, regardless of how juvenile they seen! When at sea, it’s easy to let your guard down and just have a good time!
Dining on the Navigator of the Seas is a gastronomical experience! A gorgeous multi-tier dining room, each level named after a classic ballet, is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Royal Caribbean offers guests traditional early and late dinner seating, as well as My Time open seating.
The Italian restaurant, Portofino, and the steak house, Chops Grille are open nightly. There is a surcharge and reservations are suggested. Now, some people may ask why anyone would pay extra to eat on a cruise ship when a variety of delicious meals are served every evening in
the dining room. Dining at these specialty restaurants are far different than what you will experience anywhere else on the ship. The multi-course meal is served at a leisurely pace in a more intimately sized room. The food is prepared to-order and appealingly presented. The service is extraordinary. It is truly comparable to walking into a five star restaurant at a fraction of the cost.
For casual dining, the Windjammer Cafe is open breakfast through dinner. Breakfast ranges from continental to full buffet. Later in the day your choices include soups, salads, sandwiches, hamburgers, hot entrees, grilled meats, and desserts. To the side of the Windjammer is Jade, an Asian-fusion restaurant open every evening for dinner. The menu is influenced by Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese and Indonesian cuisine. Sushi is also available. Prices are a la carte.
Johnny Rockets, a 50’s style diner is open for lunch and dinner. It’s a struggle to stop eating the onion rings before your meal comes! In addition, the Café Promenade has pizza, sandwiches andpastries practically round-the-clock.
After dinner is a good time to enjoy the entertainment on the Royal Promenade. In addition to visiting the bars, the 70’s dance party and parades are held there as well.
A multitude of themed bars and lounges throughout the ship offer something for everyone. Guests can also enjoy the cinema, ice show, casino and Vegas-style production show starring the Royal Caribbean Singers and Dancers.
