A great time!!

Sail Date: October 01, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

This was our first trip with Royal Caribbean and we enjouyed it thoroughly. We had a great room with a balcony which made it much more relaxing. The weather didn't cooperate with us but that is to be expected when going to New England in the fall. Portofino's was very elegant and the service was phenomenal. The dining ataff at night was wonderful and couldn't be any friendlier. The shows were a great hit especially the comedians and the one group who were the "Jersey Boys" spin off. Over all it was a great experience although I was a little surprised that there weren't too many places to shop on the ship.

Pros: Loved the fact that I upgraded to a verandah room, made the trip more enjoyable

Cons: the amount of older people that tended to be rude

Recommends Explorer of the Seas? Yes!

Children's Programs
Ship Quality
Our room was always very clean and well taken care of. We looked forward to seeing what kind of "animal" would be on our bed each night!!
Food and Dining
For the most part, the food was great and plenty of it. However there were a few times when food that shouldn't, did taste a little fishy, especially the lobter tail at the end had this taste.
Cabin / Stateroom
very nice and cozy.
Service and Staff
Never had a problem with any of the staff, were always pleasant and friendly.
