Nice Cruise!

Sail Date: April 26, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

The crew was excellent! could not ask for better! The shows were below average... very disappointed. The captain was not at any of the formal dinners... in fact, they were not consistant with people's dress.. we saw shorts and t shirts allowed on formal night, which they said was NOT allowed, so it was silly for the rest of us to dress up. The stores were expensive and mostly high end.. not small variety place for forgotten items, etc.. We enjoyed the cruise and the itinerary, but 2 islands were closed for holidays ( the main stores)...Mostly positive, tho!

Pros: Ice shows

Cons: no band until at sea days, no captain at formal dinners ( they were nothing special)

Recommends Explorer of the Seas? Yes!

San Juan, Puerto Rico
Bridgetown, Barbados
again, they were closed. it was sunday.. only cruise dock shops open
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
really enjoyed our atv quad tour
Roseau, Dominica
no shopping except at cruise dock.. very dirty, but we didnt go on any excursions, so it may be better other places on the island
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
lots of stores were going out of business and it was carnival...prices were higher than you normally find here
Basseterre, St. Kitts
several name places like diamonds international and ehfh were closed; out of business... but it was a fun port
St. John's, Antigua
beautiful! shops only open since it was labor day..( the dock shops) but they were really good
