This was our 3rd time on the Explorer - from the first to the last it went down hill alot - our carpet was dirty in our cabin, the door of the cabinet where the safe was, was broken & hanging by one hinge, we rarely got clean towels and wash cloths. Paper from the parade the day we sailed was still on the steps 3 days later, we picked it up. Some friends got left standing on the dock and it took 3 days for them to get on the ship, even tho our first Port was New London, Con. they had to get on in Helfax, does that make sense??? I know, I know, the Jones Act of 1920 had something to do with putting slaves on ships with foreign flags.in US ports but it still doesn't make much sense! We have always loved RCC, but I am looking now for some other cruise line for our Christmas cruise. Also, this cruise went north and the winds were cold and there are no large areas where you can sit and read indoors by a window that looks out at the sea.
