Nightmare beginning but a great cruise

Sail Date: September 09, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

the ship left without us. we were at the ship by 4:15 PM and they refused to allow us to board the ship. we immediately called BJ's vacations and an agent told me there is nothing they can do. I called royalcarribean and they did nothing. I later learned that royal carribean could have called the ship to advise them we were waiting to board but they did not. After sitting at port for an hour and watching the ship depart, we then had to fly to Bermuda to meet the ship. They made us wait 1 hour to board the ship in Bermuda because their manifest did not have our names on it. The cruise was wonderful after that.

Pros: excellent staff onboard,great entertainment,food was good

Cons: Service received from BJ's was very poor

Recommends Explorer of the Seas? Yes!
