Review Summary

As first time cruisers, we found this vacation to be everything we expected and more! From the moment we arrived at the cruise port in New Jersey to the time time we returned nine days later, we were treated as royalty on this cruise. The staff of the Explorer of the Seas was respectful, gracious, and very accommodating to our every need. The grand suite that we purchased was spotless and the attendant staff provided us with tremendous service. The Captain spoke to guests every day, providing information about weather conditions, ports of call, and gangway decks to be used, At the ports of call the ship organization was flawless, allowing passengers to depart and embark in an orderly, well thought out manner. The main dinning experience in the Magellan Room and the Windjammer Buffet were exceptional experiences; a variety of food presented in an appetizing manner. On the day of final departure were off the ship and through customs by 10:00 a.m. We have been bitten by the cruising experience and have already planned our next cruise.
