Superb photos thank you.

I am assuming that Voyager will get the same refresh later this year?

Thank you Twangster for a great photo blog of all the bars, restaurants and public areas on the new look Navigator.

 

We’re sailing on her in April and this will also be our first cruise with Royal Caribbean, seasoned NCL cruisers up until now. Your information was great for us to recce and try to get up to speed with the included, not included, where to find things etc.

 

still, we have to explore when we first get on board, can’t wait.

 

cheers 

Derek

Late Night Windjammer was a burger/hotdog affair:

On the last night the Windjammer had seafood I've not seen before in the Windjammer and this wasn't a formal night:

Shortly after taking this next photo they refilled this lobster tray quite full.

these photos are amazing. Many thanks!!! The pool deck and the new Lime & Coconut tiered bar area look stunning. Really want to book this ship now. Wonder if the rest of this class will get these renovations?

Awesome photos- I can’t wait to board next month! 

 

You don’t happen to know whether you can take go pros on the water slides? I saw some footage of the riptide and it would look awesome in my holiday video. I don’t know whether they just allowed it for media or whether anyone can use go pros on it. I know you could on the Abyss on the SoS

 

also I am so happy about that late night grub. I see my favourite pumpkin cheese rolls!!! And those burgers after many drinks won’t taste that bad 💁🏻‍♀️

I also saw your live thread elsewhere but it's great to see everything posted at once here. I sure wish Navigator was doing 9 night cruises more often. I'm not a big fan of the 3/4 nights she'll be offering.

Twangster...how is the internet on the ship? Loved your photo's so much!

 

Surf & Stream of course.  We already know Surf alone service is so-so at best.

Fantastic photos and cruise information. Could you share what you used to take the photos?

Looking forward to my cruise later this month more than ever after viewing your photo collection. Well done!

We immediately noticed that a wide angle and/or "fisheye" lens appeared to be used for a number of photos.

 

A nice group of memory photos on board Navigator - bravo.

I was on Navigator in December and the Voom performance is pretty much the same.  To be fair satellite coverage down by the ABC islands isn't the same as it is closer to Florida.  I noticed a big difference as we got closer to Cuba and the Strait of Florida.  

 

However all these photos were uploaded over Voom Surf and Stream and most of it was posted to CC last night from the ship. So... it's not O3b like Freedom class and newer but it's better than most cruise lines.

Sony 12-24mm. On the wide end it isn't technically a fisheye (which I brought and never used) but 12mm does create some distortion at the edges that  have to be careful with.  

 

Thanks!

Unlike RCCL, CCL is continuing to upgrade a number of Princess ships with MedaillonNet (their O3B internet).

Disappointing for sure but it is what it is.

Wow, these are great pictures, how did you get these with no people in most of them? I can't wait to go on Navigator in about 3 weeks. She is so beautiful, I really love the bright colors they have added.

When you said the club is for Gold or above, we are Platinum so that means we can use it now?

Thanks for sharing these pics, I am so excited.....

Soft serve ice cream has been moved behind a counter and is no longer self serve:

 

My grown children will be crying.They had a cruise tradition of pretty much eating nothing but ice cream on an entire cruise.

They must have an impressive medical care plan.

They can still eat as much as they want, they just don't serve themselves.  I love that they serve it to you now.  This will eliminate the 3 foot radius of sticky nasty mess that always surrounded the ice cream machines when people don't know how to make a cone and have the ice cream fall off the cone immediately after making it.  :)
