Great First Cruise

Sail Date: June 11, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Great Staff. Our waiter and assistant waiter were excellent as we had a great table of guests (last ones to leave each night). Shows were lively and entertaining. Shops had bargains that equalled or betterd the islands. Everyone on-board was friendly and the options from swimming to any other sports activites were handled real well.

Pros: Great Features on-board / Exercusions were terrific

Cons: Really did not have any

Recommends Explorer of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
Ship always was immaculate as well as our stateroom. Certainly plenty of room to lounge about the ppols or to escape to one of the lounges
Service and Staff
Staff always were upbeat.
Food and Dining
Chose the later seating and the staff provided great selections. Choosing to pre-order both soda and wine worked well. The Windjammer cafe offered a great alternative in selection and speed to the main dining areas (great for breakfast and lunch). Enjoyed the formal evenings which added a special touch
Cabin / Stateroom
Room was made up or cleaned each time we left. The special touch of towels turned into animals was a nice touch each evening.
Cruise director and his team made every effort to keep you moving with neat contests. Excursions were handled real well given we had rain at times.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Beach was very clean. Overall impression of the island moving from the Dutch to the French side was not impressive.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Catamaran crew made for a fun filled time even while snorkeling in the rain
King's Wharf, Bermuda
The dolphin experience was first rate
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Walking tour of old San Juan was neat if history and architecture are of interest.
