Explorer of the Seas

September 2016 - Explorer of the Seas to Coastal - West Coast

7 night Pacific Coastal (Seattle Roundtrip

This was a very nice cruise.  The ship was beautiful and had an unbelievable crew.  Food was very good.  The weather was cool, so be sure to bring a heavy jacket if you go in September.  Overnight in San Francisco allows plenty of time to see the sights.  We rented a car and drove to Napa Valley, which is only about 40 miles north of the city.

Jewel of the Seas

May 2015 - Jewel of the Seas to Coastal - West Coast

Loved he Ports of Call but Ship need update

Loved the ports of call on this cruise, but halls of ship smelled musty and room was not cleaned when we arrived.   Boarding process was slowed by long lines.  San Diego is not a regular stop.  This was a repositioning stop.  We were told by other passengers, that many of the crew members had left ship in San Diego for other assignment and so we had many new crew members.  I think this was the reason the room was not as clean (very dusty and obvious not dusted for days), the staff not as friendly, and the food not as good as on other RCL cruises we have taken.  Sailing was smooth and boarding and unboarding were smooth at other ports.  We did have engine problems in San Francisco which delayed getting to next port by 6 hours and many of the excursions were cancelled.  Money was refunded for cancelled excursions and some were added, but it was a trip interruption.  We had not sailed RCL for sometime and were disappointed it was not as good as we had remembered.
