Both very nice ships, I'm going again on the Navigator in two weeks time. The Navigator is BIG and lots going on, very busy. The Enerald Princess is smaller but a very nice ship with first class service and more attention to detail. Book on both lol.

Emerald Princess if you want peace, quality, good food, big variety of restaurants, space, good shows, etc. Navigator if you want a rock climbing wall and towel animals. Princess are a far better line than Royal Caribbean (at least based on the cruises I have taken with both), Emerald is a brand new ship while Navigator is out of date, but if you want Pontins with a propellor, go for Navigator. If you want quality... Princess wins hands down.

We have been on the Navigator of the Seas three times and habe booked another cruise on the ship in six weeks time.We have not been on a Princess Ship, but find the Navigator a lovely ship for all ages. I cannot understand a comment made by another person of Pontins- it is not like that at all. The ship covers for all ages and we are in our fifties. Also the ship is not old, its only about three or four years old.

Definatly Navigator without a doubt! I won't sail with anyone but Royal Caribbean but my parents decided to try out Princess Cruises. Rang home on the first day - OK - Rang home on the second day - NOT AS GOOD AS ROYAL CARIBBEAN CAN'T WAIT TO GET OFF! As seasoned Royal Caribbean sailers both my husband and parents would NEVER go with another cruise company. They cater for everyone! E-mail me direct with any questions. Everyone I have ever recommended to Royal Caribbean has been back time and time again.

Navigator of the seas is too american, like disney land or Butlins on sea. If you want class go for Princess. if you like lots of drink, children round your feet, queueing up for everything and lots of razzamatazz, go for Navigato.

Cannot be fairly compared. Navigator superb ship, great facilities and very cleverly caters for all age groups, likes and dislikes. Enormous ship, but never ever felt crowded - even in August. Ideal for families. We are great fans of Royal Caribbean and always look for their itineries first.

Thomson Cruise A whole new...

By Brad Smith

Having worked for Thomson for nearly a decade before coming to www.CRUISE.co.uk, I saw the company change dramatically over the years. From the airline purchasing brand new Dreamliner planes from Boeing, to the introduction of exclusive properties to cater for every type of holiday maker.Whilst working there I saw a few minor changes to the cruise side of the business, but nothing dramatic. The ships were always old and small, but customers loved them none the less. Well, that’s changed con...

Looking For School Holiday Cruises?

By Amy Ginder

Amy Ginder's blog

This time of year we have a lot of calls asking for late availability for the school holidays. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it is very late in the day. Most cruise lines have filled all of their 3 and 4 berth cabins and those that have space will charge you astronomical prices.So what do you do if you are looking to cruise in the school holidays? The answer is book early! Book now for 2018, if you leave it to nearer the time not only will the prices climb but you are unlikely to ge...

By Jo Cunningham

Jo Cunningham's blog

 Thomson Cruises have made some changes in recent years and things are really working for them, in the last 5 years they have seen an increase in passenger numbers of 40%, with 20% being in the last year alone.They have always been looked down upon by a lot of customers, although unjustly so as their reviews have always been good. But with older ships and less of the pomp and ceremony of other lines they have been viewed as being at the lower end of the market.In 2016, they made a major ...
