5 Night Bermuda (Cape Liberty Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 14, 2008
Ship: Explorer of the Seas
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 8 years ago

The ship itself was beautiful with much potential, but I have been on cruises before and never have I felt such a large boat rock back & forth so nuch it almost took me off my feet on more than one occasion. I was ill for 3 days. The only food that was worth eating was the dinners in the dining room. The buffets tasted like they were a week old. The deck patrol didn't patrol anything since rude teenagers were allowed to jump & dive into the pool right next to myself and the man next to me with his little daughter trying to swim. They wanted to give us attitude because we asked them to take a look at the big sign that said "no jumping or diving" anytime. More than one of the bartenders were rude and lacked the friendly customer service I have come to expect from a cruise line. Everything was so hard to find and it wasn't very accesible. All in all I was very disappointed and will go back to the cruise line I know and love

All of their activities were too short and didn't coinside with the late dinner people

Service and Staff

We loved our waiters for dinner. We found 2 bartenders that we liked and stuck with them because everyone else was less than enthused to serve

Ship Quality
