We were first time cruisers on a budget as this was a family vacation. Our 5 day cruise to Bermuda on Royal Carribean's Explorer of the Seas was everything we had hoped it would be -- and more. The ship is like a floating resort -- everything you could possibly wish for is on this ship. The ship is beautiful and immaculate. The staff courteous and attentive. We had a wonderful time and look forward to sailing with Royal Carribean again.

Pros: The amenities of the ship -- outstanding!

Cons: That we weren't warned ahead of time that one of our days in port was a public holiday and many things were either closed or operating on a limited schedule.

Recommends Explorer of the Seas? Yes!

Service and Staff
Our wait staff at dinner was exceptional. Top rate.
Royal Carribean succeeds in offering something for everyone.
Ship Quality
The staff aims to please.
Cabin / Stateroom
Everytime we left our stateroom we came back to a clean and refreshed room.
Food and Dining
The only negative was that the kitchen had difficulty in achieving "medium" when cooking beef. It was either rare or well done.
King's Wharf, Bermuda
Nice area. Everything to do is easily accessible on foot. The evening glass bottom boat excursion into the Bermuda Triangle was a bust and so was the watered down complimentary drink, which turned out to be something different than what was stated in the trip's description.
Don't Miss: Dolphin Quest. Expensive, but worth it.
