Used Park & Go with our AAA and got it for $10.50 per day. We parked and they literally picked us up, loaded our luggage right from our parking spot and dropped us off at dock, they even took the luggage off the shuttle for us. Embarkation was a breeze...used the online check-in and was on the ship in 20 minutes. Had lunch in the Windjammer, the reviews about the Windjammer were on track as the food there is in line with a buffet restaurant fare. The dining room however was very good, service was amazing with the very friendly and capable, Mimeno from Bombay. Tried a variety of soups,appetizers and entrees which were all very good. The only entree that my husband didn't care for was the calzone. Had asked for a four top table and got there to find a six top - it worked out though as the other party never showed all week. Our stateroom was a Promenade cabin 6263 which was directly over the Cafe. Our room steward took good care of our rooms, however, was not as interactive with us as we have enjoyed in the past. Very convenient location as the stairs and elevators were just a few steps away. we had NO problem with noise from the bars on the Promenade. We even watched the sail away party on the Promenade from our cabin window. I usually enjoy the evening shows, however, this particular ship the song and dance shows lacked luster. The Mosiac group was AWESOME...I would pay to see them again!! The Ice Dancing show is very good as was the comedian Carl Banks. We have cruised Carnival several times and they seem to have a bit more going on in the way of adult late night shows than RCCL. We did not use the pools or spa so no comment on that area. Ports of call...Labadee, Haiti was very beautiful, we purchased tickets for the Dragon Alpine Coaster. Cost is $19 per cart. Enjoyed the beach there!! Next port was Falmouth, Jamaica - this was only the second ship to come into this newly developed port. Construction still in process, but very, very nice port. The final project will be awesome. We booked a double excursion with Chukka for the Ziplining and River Tubing. Guide Anthony was fantastic and made the ziplining a very enjoyable experience. Bubly was a great guide for the river tubing portion of the excursion. Downfall was having to wait 35 minutes for people from our shuttle van to shop and the transportation guide did nothing to rush them along....leaving the rest of the group no time to shop closer to the ship in the brand new shops and having to run as we were late reboarding the ship. I would sail on the Navigator again without hesitation and would definately like to return to Labadee and Falmouth ports.
