Review SummaryMy family and I had sailed the RCL Voyager for a 9 day last July and had the best time so decided to keep with the same type of ship and move to the Explorer for the 9 day on 6/30/06. I couldn't have imagined that this cruise would exceed my expectations. The ship was so very familiar that it became comfortable right away. We had the owner's suite which was spcaious, and a great room steward to keep it wonderfully picked up and organized. All of the crew was friendly and attentive and it was hard to remember that there were familes before us, and would be families after us. We were made to feel that special. It is one thing to have the incredible experience of being on a ship, but to have one that you love to be on and look forward to being on again is amazing to me. Alan, the cruise director, is a natural. He is precious to look at and so naturally funny and relaxed. The ice show was great; Hayes and Wilde, the comedy team, left me in tears. Portofinos is wonderful!! The food and service were spectacular. To go on and on and rave like a lunatic might get embarrassing for me (well maybe not, but I know I won't be able to write the novel I want in this space), because that is what I want I feel I would have to do. Fill pages and pages with a glowing review of every aspect. So let me end it here with the the the proof...(besides the fact that we are going on the RCL Jewel in Oct 06)....we have excitingly and happily and anxiously booked the Explore for another 9 day on 7/6/2007!! Whooohooooo!!!
