Navigator of the Seas

navigator of the seas staff photo

The Navigator of the Seas revolutionized the cruise industry by introducing innovative amenities such the iconic rock-wall, an ice-skating rink, a full size basketball and sports court, an inline skating track and Royal Caribbean's signature Royal Promenade, a boulevard of shops, restaurants, bars and lounges that runs nearly the length of the ship. Sister ships include the Voyager of the Seas, Adventure of the Seas, Explorer of the Seas and Mariner of the Seas. 

Since a 2014 refurbishment, the Navigator now includes some Quantum-inspired upgrades, like a FlowRider simulator, virtual balconies, and floor-to-ceiling panoramic ocean view suites. Wi-Fi is available throughout the ship and the Royal Tots Nursery received an upgrade.
