we were disappointed with Explorer. ship is showing its age and looks and feels tired and threadbare. Lots of plumbing problems
Royal Caribbean has also eliminated most of the nice little touches that make cruising special. Eliminating chocolates on the pillow and little bottles of lotion in the bathroom and the recap of the daily news really seems petty.
The menu and selections have all been reduced and the overall quality of the food has declined dramatically

The crew is still very good to excellent and that made the trip enjoyable

Pros: crew was great

Cons: ship needs major overhaul

Recommends Explorer of the Seas? No.
