Navigator Of The Seas Back In Service After Enhancement

Royal Caribbean International’s Navigator of the Seas returns to service today after a month-long drydock revitalization. Sailing year-round from Galveston, Texas, she brings forth new and significantly enhanced dining and recreation options and offers a glimpse ahead toward the cruise line’s highly anticipated Quantum of the Seas.


Most anticipated of all the ship’s additions is her new FlowRider surf simulator atop the Sports Deck. A hugely popular attraction on the Freedom- and Oasis-class, the facility complements the ship’s array of sports and recreation offerings including the swimming pools, hot tubs and rock-climbing wall.


81 interior staterooms have been transformed into Royal Caribbean’s first Virtual Balconies. First announced for Quantum of the Seas, the technology makes its debut onboard Navigator of the Seas, promising expansive, real-time views of the ocean and destinations. New Panoramic Ocean View staterooms feature floor-to-ceiling glass walls providing guests breathtaking, unobstructed views all the time.


An all-new modern Mexican specialty restaurant, Sabor, leads the expanded line-up of dining experiences. The additional-charge venue features a mouthwatering menu of authentic, modern and unexpected Mexican dishes, paired with customized guacamole and salsas made tableside, as well as a curated menu of tequilas, mezcal, Mexican beers, sangrias and tableside-mixed margaritas.


The first among Royal Caribbean’s fleet to offer the new menu, Chops Grille on Navigator of the Seas will be the first in the fleet to offer a new menu combining brand new selections, including the “Veal Chop Parmesan, slow broiled with caramelized shallots and topped with parmesan herb butter” and a “Dry-aged Steak Burger served on a brioche bun and topped with melted gruyere and pancetta”, with classics such as the “8 Oz. Filet Mignon, served with Béarnaise butter” and the “10 Oz. Grilled Sirloin Steak”.


Cruisers can also choose exciting sushi and Asian fusion dishes in the ship’s new Izumi Japanese Cuisine and delicious classic Italian favorites in Giovanni’s Table Italian trattoria. Rounding out Navigator of the Seas’ culinary experiences is the grand, 3-deck Sapphire main dining room, casual-dining Windjammer Café, the signature retro-chic R Bar, and complimentary room service.


The enhancement also brings some of the line’s more popular concepts to the ship, including new digital signage, bow-to-stern Wi-Fi service, new flatscreen televisions in every stateroom, an oversized LCD movie screen overlooking the main pool, a new Diamond Lounge for Crown & Anchor Society loyalty members and the Royal Babies and Tots Nursery.


Navigator of the Seas will sail 7-night Western Caribbean itineraries every Sunday from Galveston, visiting exciting warm-weather getaways in the Caribbean, including Cozumel, Roatan, Belize City, Falmouth, and George Town.
