Royal Caribbean Navigator of the Seas out of Galveston, TX

Recently I experienced the 7-Night Western Caribbean Cruise out of Galveston. Stayed in a room with a balcony, which I highly recommend. I’ve always stayed in interior rooms, but really enjoyed the balcony and probably won’t sail again unless I am in a balcony room.

As always on a cruise, the staff that waited on us were great! We had a great crew that cleaned our room and knew our schedule pretty well. Then the dining room wait staff was great and very helpful with our special needs with food allergies. Of course we alerted the maitre d’ on the first night and they were consistent in meeting our needs.

Our first stop was in Roatan, Honduras. Roatan is home to the second-largest coral reefs in the world. Our shore excursion we chose was the Shipwreck Snorkel & Beach. We took a ride out to a remote private island and met our guides at the Fantasy Island Beach Resort, which was beautiful.

Then the following day we were in Belize City, Belize. Belize City was founded in the 1700’s by former pirates. Home to lush tropical rainforest and the longest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere. We visited the ancient Mayan city of Altun Ha, which was once a major trading center before the Europeans arrived. Afterwards we took a boat ride along the coast on the River Wallace.

Our final stop was Cozumel, Mexico where we did an underwater Helmet dive.

Tips on lowering your risk of being a victim of petty theft or non-violent crimes while away from home:

1. Leave your valuables and irreplaceable items inside your stateroom safe.
2. Avoid wearing flashy and obviously expensive jewelery.
3. Carry only the cash or credit cards you will need on each of your outings.
4. Use discretion when handling cash in public.
5. Keep your belongings secure and out of sight.
