Explorer of the Seas

September 2017 - Explorer of the Seas to Coastal - West Coast

Great Destinations

The ship is old and it shows it. Unfortunately the food in the dining room was not the best. Luckily the specialty restaurants made up for it. The Italian and Japanese restaurants were very good. You never see the cruise staff around the ship, only at an event. Other lines I have been on, they were everywhere, which is great. You get to know them and they get to know you. The venues they used for some activities were not good. Having trivia in the Schooner Bar was not big enough for the amount of people participating. The last day they moved it to a lounge.

Oasis of the Seas

February 2017 - Oasis of the Seas to Caribbean - Eastern

Too Big

I was told that you won't real know that there are 6,000 people on-board.  Not true.  You definitely know there is.  Every place you go, there are lines. This number of people also causes challenges to dining.  Not for dinner but for breakfast and lunch.  There is no way the Windjammer restaurant could handle the volume so they have numerous other venues offering meals.  But, unless you go to each one, you don't know their offerings.  One has fried eggs cooked to order, the others don't.  One only has pastries.  And they all open and close at different times.

 

All these things make everything feel very disjointed. Will never cruise on an Oasis class ship again.

Liberty of the Seas

July 2015 - Liberty of the Seas to Caribbean

Good but not the best

Royal Caribbean cruises used to be the best but have definitely gone downhill. The dining room food was fair. I ate from the "Classic" menu then from the daily entrées. The breakfast buffet is so unorganized it makes finding what you want very difficult. They only had one omelet station which made for very long lines for anything except scrambled. The best food was at Johnny Rockets. 

All the port times were rather short except for their private island. And I can see why. They make a fortune on extras there. The zip line was $100. Mats for the water were 2 for $35. Everything was extra except for the food (an OK buffet) and the lounges on the sand. 

​The entertainment was not the best. The only good show was the ice skating show. Unlike other cruises I very seldom saw the cruise director's staff. For one poolside games day, they played one game that took 10 minutes. 

​In my opinion, Carnival is now doing a better job.

rdromance's Tips

San Francisco, California - I contacted Urban Adventure Quest and did there Awesome San Francisco Scavenger Hunt. This was the best experience I have had in touring a city.
