Wonderful relaxing cruise

Sail Date: August 01, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/young children

Room Type: Inside

I was most impressed by the quality of the service and the staff. They were absolutely wonderful. The food was good. We loved the ports we traveled to, but were disappointed by how the disembarking was done with people lined up on the stairways for a half hour or more to get off the ship. Also, we wished that the time in ports was about 3-4 hours more than scheduled. Excusions took almost 90% of your time in port if you took one, or, if you didn't, you spent too much time trying to get back to ship to enjoy the port.

Pros: Service

Cons: Getting off ship at port

Recommends Explorer of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
Extremely clean, great service, nice and pleasant staff. They fell over themselves being of help to us.
Food and Dining
Our wait staff in the main dining room was superb. I can't say enough about how well they took care of us. The food was pretty good.
Plenty to do, but not much effort was made to get people engaged in the activities.
Cabin / Stateroom
We had an inside cabin, and we were at first afraid that it would have been too small. After 9 days, we could say it was small, but not unmanageable. I would do it again.
Service and Staff
All around excellent.
