This past December, my family and I embarked on our very first Royal Caribbean Cruise. We had only cruised once before on a Carnival Cruise Lines older ship, The Carnival Sensation, so we were very excited to try out Royal Caribbean for the first time and experience an updated vessel.  In early 2019, the cruise line included the on a “Bow to Stern” updated look. This included state rooms, top of the line waterslides, guest services, bars, specialty dining facilities, entertainment and more.

Navigator of the Seas Stateroom Options

For our cruise, we originally chose a stateroom with an ocean view. However, as our cruise drew near; we were able to upgrade for free to a balcony stateroom as there were some available after the booking period closed. However, the Navigator of the Seas has a ton of stateroom options to choose from to fit the needs of families both large and small. Some of their most unique stateroom options include a virtual balcony with LED screen that projects the outside surroundings in real time to spacious luxury suites.  


As I mentioned, we had a traditional stateroom with balcony which was plenty of space for the three of us. The room came complete with a king size bed, wardrobe, couch, desk, medicine refrigerator, Television, Bathroom with shower and of course outdoor lounging space with the balcony.  With the renovated design, this stateroom felt very spacious and comfortable. We tend to only sleep in our room during the cruise so we never concentrate our cruise funds on the room.


Navigator of the Seas Stateroom Amenities

Some of our favorite things about cruising are the Amenities. With a Wi-Fi package or “The Key”  Program, you will have access to Zoom Wi-Fi services. Other amenities included turn down service nightly. The cleaning staff did an amazing job keeping our room tidy multiple times a day. They also left our beloved towel animals which are always a nice touch.


24- Hour room service is available for most items which was excellent for midnight cravings and when you would rather relax than going down for the breakfast buffet or grab and go options.


If you are traveling with children, stateroom attendants and cruise staff are always willing to assist and bring supplies to make the your stay easier. When we arrived in our room, the cruise staff had already placed a pack and play in our room for our son. Although we did not need it, it was nice to know that we had the option available to us.

Overall, our stay in the Navigator of the Seas Balcony stateroom was very comfortable and we did enjoy the upgraded look of the room. During our cruises, the goal is to always stay out of the room as much as possible but it was great to have a very nice place to sleep at night or nap during the day with our son.
