9 Night Bermuda & Caribbean (Cape Liberty Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 11, 2009
Ship: Explorer of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 8 years ago
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.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
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


5 out of 5
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.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Staff always were upbeat.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
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

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Room was made up or cleaned each time we left. The special touch of towels turned into animals was a nice touch each evening.

Beach was very clean. Overall impression of the island moving from the Dutch to the French side was not impressive.
5 out of 5
The dolphin experience was first rate

Catamaran crew made for a fun filled time even while snorkeling in the rain
5 out of 5
Walking tour of old San Juan was neat if history and architecture are of interest.

Pros: Great Features on-board / Exercusions were terrific

Cons: Really did not have any
