Explorer of the Seas

7 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)

Sail Date: April 08, 2007

Ship: Explorer of the Seas

Cabin Type: Balcony

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Review Summary

The ship was absolutely amazing. It was beautiful, well maintained, and the staff were all exceptionally kind. Our room was incredible and our steward was just phenomenal. The food was abundant and good. The kid's camp was so well thought out and clever--my 10-year-old had an absolute blast! We were in awe. The only complaint I have is that I thought there would have been other single parents in my age range to talk with, but this wasn't the case, and although this was a first rate experience I would not recommend it for a single parent. Go with a friend, other family, boyfriend/girlfriend/whatever, but not alone. It can be somewhat lonely---and I like my alone time! Otherwise it was just great.

Ports Of Call

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

Our tour guide was phenomenal on this excursion--extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We went to both ruins sites which was a bit too much--one would have been sufficient, but all in all it was a wonderful adventure!
Don't Miss: Mayan Ruins

Belize City, Belize

Tubing through the caves was an adventure and a half! I'd do it again in a heartbeat!
Don't Miss: Tubing throught the Mayan caves

Swam with the dolphins---by far our favorite excursion and the one that went by the quickest---we would have loved to have had more time in the water with them.
Don't Miss: Swimming with dolphins

George Town, Grand Cayman

We took the catamaran cruise which was just OK--the guide spoke very knowledgeably about how expensive real estate is but had no history to tell about the island--the beach, while pretty, had a separate little section for the "cruise" people and was crowded with second-rate beach chairs (most were broken) for us, and $5.00 for an umbrella. I didn't have the "free drink" offered, but my daughter said it was disgusting. The water was beautiful, but this excursion was the one we could have done without.
Don't Miss: Don't know--we weren't on it!!!!
