Explorer of the Seas Cruise Review
Well, this was my husband and my second cruise ever, and the second cruise with Royal Caribbean. It was our first cruise to the Caribbean though. We were on the Western Caribbean itinerary.When we got to the airport in Miami, we were immediately met at the gate by an RCI staff member who led us down to baggage claim, and then helped us get on to the bus. It wasn't too bad. Then we got to the port, and there were hundreds of people on line, so we thought we were in for a long wait. However, we were on line for maybe 10 minutes.The ship was GORGEOUS and TREMENDOUS! We had tons of fun exploring the ship. The food was really good, and the service was impeccable.We had an awesome time playing miniature golf, seeing the ice show, and seeing all of the other shows on board. There was a belly flop contest on board the second day on the ship, and tings were fun the whole time.There were 700 children on a ship of 3,500 passengers, and they were never really a bother. The kids' program (Adventure Ocean) seemed to do a lot with them.My husband REALLY enjoyed the Oceanic and Atmospheric lab on board. It's th eonly ship out there now that has this.We are already planning our next cruise... with Royal Caribbean, of course!
