Explorer of the Seas

invalid-36027

Sail Date: December 14, 2007

Ship: Explorer of the Seas

Cabin Type: Balcony

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Review Summary

Overall, the ship was great, but I was very upset in not seeing hand sanitizers in public areas on this ship. I feel with this many people aboard, every sanitary precaution should be taken, especially around food areas. (I had cruised on NCL last year and hand sanitizing was strictly enforced.)

Ports Of Call

Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)

5 out of 5
Labadee was a fun day. Many activities and the layout of the area was good. I did find that the beach had sand fleas and you had to be careful when sun bathing.

Casa De Campo, Dominican Republic

3 out of 5
Our time in the Dominican Republic was from 7:30 to 2:00 pm, so we toured around. This area was very poor and was just 'fair' as far as things to see and do.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

3 out of 5
We arrived in San Juan late in the day, disembarked by 3:30pm and did not feel comfortable being there once it got dark. Wasn't thrilled with the timing of this stop.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

5 out of 5
St. Thomas is great! The beaches are some of the best anywhere and this area offers excellent shopping, as well.

Pros: The ship had many amenities. We thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment and the adult pool area.

Cons: Very dissappointed that there were no hand sanitizers in any of the public areas
