Explorer of the Seas

Sail Date: July 23, 2006

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

This was our 2nd cruise in 2 years with RCCL and it felt like coming home! This ship was identical to Voyager of the Seas other than the decor, so we were very comfortable getting around. We had a balcony room which was next door to a room that was flooded on the 2nd night due to the occupants hanging something from their sprinkler. Our rug/floor was soaked and the cabin smelled horrible...the head of housekeeping had both rooms refurbished with new carpet and deorderized while we were at dinner (from discovery of our room's damage to the time we returned to it fixed was only 2 hours!). There was no inconvenience to us and no interuption of our use of our room...very, very impressed! The weather was awful. It rained all but 1.5 days total and it never felt crowded even with over 3.000 passengers all inside! Due to the fact that it was only a 5 day cruise it felt very rushed and the activities were not promoted like on the longer cruises we've done, so we did feel like we missed a lot and were forced to choose between activites/shows. We cannot wait to cruise again, but will most definitely go for a longer trip.

Pros: The variety of activities and size of the ship

Cons: Our table location at dinner

King's Wharf, Bermuda
lack of direction when we disembarked as to where to get the ferry/bus caused 18 of us to wait over 45 minutes for a ferry which never arrived, but if we had been directed to walk around the sidewalk to the other side of the inlet, we could have been on a ferry or bus within minutes. Horseshoe Beach was breathtaking, and the Island Party Cruise excursion was so peaceful and beautiful! We went on a fun ferry with music and beverages/ alcohol as well as soda/ to a private island "Hawkins Island" for a day of kayaking, snorkeling, swimming,, relaxing! Lunch and all drinks were included, and the ride back was just as much fun!
