Navigator of the Sea, Nov 9th, 09 Transatlantic.
Any FOD on subject cruise?

I'm thinking of either taking this cruise or one ex Venice 14 Nov. Have you heard from anyone else taking this cruise yet?

Have you been on this ship before? I'm new to cruising - the last ship I went on was a big mistake - like being in a floating casino (Carnival). So if you can give me any encouragement to go on this one, it'd be appreciated!

I'm 50 yrs old, in a relationship but will be travelling solo.

Navigator of the Sea
Hi Mark, I have never been on Navigator of the Sea but I have taken 9 cruises on the same class as the Navigator, the Mariner of the Sea. I have taken 42 cruises in the past 6 years and this class of RCCL ships is by far my favorite. On Sept 6 I am taking another cruise to the Mexican Riviera on the Mariner, that's how much I like this class ship. I also look forward to visiting Madera, the Canary Islands and Nassua. I always enjoy staying in Fort Lauderdale on returning to the States.
I frequently book an inside cabin and this class ship has PR (Prominade Roooms) which overlook the Mall in the center of the ship.
The only thing I dislike about Royal Caribbean lines is that they do not offer the best single suppliment prices. I do think that RCCL have the most beautiful ships.
Cheers, Ron

Hi Ron,
Many thanks for the reply. I'm kinda leaning toward the Transatlantic now. I'm eligible for airline discount, and I have noticed that booking with Magellan Interline seems a bit cheaper than the others. If you don't mind me asking, who do you book through? Every penny counts when you're paying to travel on your own!
Also, what are spa facilities like on this class of ship? I don't mind the odd steam or two, but prefer men only and women only sauna/steam.

Booking Travel Agent.
I am retired Military and I book thru,, because they speciallize in Airline employees and as well as active duty and retired military. I due all my booking with the five girls who have given me excellelt service for several years now.
Mariner of the Sea, which is the same class as the Navigator of the Sea have seperate men and lidies steam and sauna facilities right by the gym. In the afternoons I always exchange my room card for a locker key and have a steam, sauna, shower and shave in this space.
Hope that answers your questions.
Last time I looked the price for an inside cabin for this transatlantic was in the neighborhood of $950 for an inside PR cabin.
Cheers, Ron

Moreabout the steam/sauna.
P.S. I forgot to say that the locker room, steam and sauna facilities on this class ship are free of any extra charges. I never use my cabin shower when on this Voyger class ship because the locker room showers and much larger and the towels are huge and unlimited. The only weighing scales, other than sick-bay, are also in the locker room.
Cheers, Ron
