Explorer of the Seas

7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)

Sail Date: November 26, 2006

Ship: Explorer of the Seas

Cabin Type: Inside

Traveled As: Large Group

Reviewed: 11 years ago

Review Summary

The ship was so large and there was so much to do that I never got bored. I especially liked the variety of places to eat, drink and dance. The champagne bar became my favorite place to hangout and I met many great people there. I enjoyed all the shows and found them to be very professionally presented and not too cheesey, as I feared they would be. I had a great time dancing the nights away, the music was good although the DJ seemed a bit off on some nights. I really enjoyed the ports-of-call excursions, I only wish that there would have been an overnight stop in Puerto Rico so I could have checked out the nightlife. Overall, for my first cruise it was a great experience and I'm definitely looking forward to the next one

I wish that I could experience such a high level of customer service in my regular day-to-day life. The staff are a big reason why my experience was so enjoyable and worth repeating.

Cabin / Stateroom

Although a little small, I never felt claustrophobic. There was plenty of space for all of me and my companion's travel gear, with room to spare.

Ports Of Call

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

Nassau, Bahamas

3 out of 5
Too touristy. Would have liked to have more time to explore other areas of the city besides the shopping district.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

5 out of 5
Don't Miss: The tour of the Bacardi factory is a must and also a stroll through downtown and a drink or coffee at a cafe/bar.

Pros: Excellent customer service

Cons: Too much focus on shopping
