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!

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

beautiful! shops only open since it was labor day..( the dock shops) but they were really good

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!
