Explorer of the Seas

January 2015 - Explorer of the Seas to Caribbean - Western

Did not meet expectations

Really disappointed with the cruise.  Evening entertainment was weak when compared to other cruises we have taken. We were hoping food and food service to be better than what we have had on Carnival and Norwegian. What we found was the evening buffet was marginally better, but the main dining rooms and the specialty restaurants were no better than the Carnival Liberty cruise we were on the week before.  There was not nearly enough tables in the outdoor deck areas.  We like to eat our breakfast and lunches on the open decks but the Explorer of the Sea had only a token number of tables. Both Carnival and Norwegian provide ample table/chairs for casual dining.

Finally, smoking was permitted in the Lido Pool area on the Starboard side. Having designated smoking and non-smoking in an open area is like having peeing and non-peeing areas in a swimming pool.

HokieFan's Tips

Cozumel, Mexico - Great For Scuba and snorkeling, but not so much for general sight-seeing.
Explorer of the Seas Explorer of the Seas - This ship did not meet expectations. Having taken short 3-5 day cruises on other cruise lines, we were disappointed with the overall experience. We could have sailed on Carnival for 7 days for what we paid for this RCCL 5-day cruise. Expected a better experience.
