Navigator of the Seas Crusie Review
After our marriage, my husband and me wanted to go to some serene place away from hustle and bustle of city and that is why we opted to go to Cozumel via navigator of the seas.
We sailed on sea from fort Lauderdale-Cozumel-Fort Lauderdale and needless to say it was worth experience to cherish. When we boarded the ship, we were left spell bounded by its beauty, cleanliness and massive size structure.
Navigator of the Seas
We were damn hungry and wanted to have something to energize ourselves so that we could enjoy our voyage to the maximum extent. So, we directly went to the restaurant ‘The Windjammer’ where we were served the first buffet of our voyage which included different courses such as Ham, Jerk Chicken, mashed potatoes, Prime Rib and fast food varieties such as cheeseburgers, pizzas and hot dogs.
After getting satiated with our dinner, we went to the board of ship so that we could have spectacular view of the ocean. After rejoicing those romantic views for some hours, we went to our booked room so that we can take rest.
The Navigator of the Seas was perfectly maintained and crystal clean with shining wall furnishings and attractive laid carpets. One amazing fact that I noticed about the cruise is that even the outer body of the ship did not have small quantum of rust.
One of the best features which made us to enjoy every single moment of being there is that the friendly environment provided by the crew. Along with that the room service was just fantastic.
Rooms were beautifully furnished and decorated with euro style architect that added the flavor of elegance to each room. Also, the room had all the advanced technological amenities as required on the board. Fully equipped bathrooms were also done quite well and had the Jacuzzi system attached. The best part of the room was that it had a balcony attached with it. So, we spend most of our time their enjoying beautiful scenes.
In evening times, we used to go to the lounge and used to have great fun with other visitors. We played different games such as casino games such as bingo, karaoke and poker; water games and TV games among others.
Shore excursions and activities undertaken
We partook in the jungle excursion organized by the ATV Mayan and had lighter moments throughout. The best part of the excursion was that it was well coordinated and in a systemic manner.
Entertainment and shows
We enjoyed varied shows such as ice shows and production shows among the major ones. The drifers gave performance and it was tremendously liked by everyone. On the other side, all the nightly activities such as piano bars in schooner lounge were among feather of entertainment that made the trip absolutely rocking.
