5 Night Bermuda (Cape Liberty Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 20, 2006
Ship: Explorer of the Seas
Cabin Type: Suite
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 11 years ago
The ship was very large and has wonderful amenities. We did find that even with its size we encountered problems with getting elevators and finding seating at some of the clubs. Also, some activities filled up quickly due to the capacity that it was frustrating at times.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food menu at dinner was not exciting or as tasty as we experienced before with RCC. There were even a few items that were repeated during our cruise!


5 out of 5
Entertainment was varied and contained a great group of accomplished singers and dancers. The ice show was incredible.

Children's Programs

1 out of 5
Surprisingly, my child who is 10, experienced a dissapointing week of activities. Many of published items were not done. This was due in part to the bad behavior of some of other children. This should not have been the case. Our last experience was so incredible that our child never wanted to leave the program. The staff never connected with my child this time.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We decided to kick it up a notch and went for the Owner's Suite. It was simply luxurious and huge in sf. For our family it was completely comfortable. We also had access to the Concierge room which had some great benefits.

Don't Miss: Scootering around the island and visiting the beaches.

Pros: The destination and the pool deck.

Cons: The meals were not as wonderful as in our past cruise.
