Modest but, not the best!

Sail Date: April 08, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Inside

I have been on three previous cruises, the ports of call on this ship are great , but, I have found the communication with the cruise director very lacking and keeping the people on board uninformed. The food on this ship was the poorest I have received and lacking in presentation and taste. No I would not recommend this ship for it's food. However if that does not matter to the customer, then, the ports of call are very appealing.

Pros: The Service of the staff

Cons: My husband and I were rushed at Portafino restaurant and found service lacking. Also this particular cruise lacked the quality of food that three previous cruises I have cruised. The room attendant was fabulous and our service in the dining room great.

Recommends Explorer of the Seas? No.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
Our familly chose this day to shop and dine.
Cozumel, Mexico
Our family reallly enjoyed the Maya ruins of Tulem and Cel Xe. We had a great guide in Phillipe and Joe the bus driver. Highly recommend these two as guide and bus driver.
Belize City, Belize
Our children 18 and 14 years of age enjoyed this tour and the snorkeling. We did not go into Belize, however my husband and I have form a previous cruise.
George Town, Grand Cayman
Our familly very much enjoyed the swim with the stingray and also the snorkeling. The luncheon at seven mile beach was very poorly done. The staff once serving our family failed to watch the food and birds began to feast on the buffet that we were just served. Also, when I asked Sandra "our guide" at the restaurant was very vague about the times when we should be back on the ship. When I approached her about 30 minutes after I arrived, I asked her when she wanted us back out front, her response after she put down her rum punch was "Now." I questioned the time and she become agitated at my response. My thought was she had a little too many rum punch, because her co-workers laughed after she becme short with me. When it was really time to leave, she announced everyone up front and that we had to get back to the ship. Unfortunately, she sent one-half of our staff on other busses and our driver lost over 40 passengers and asked her where his passengers were, her response was extreme
