Review Summary

It was my first cruise, and I ws impressed that this is a real floating city, after 14 days cruising I still needed a map to find certain areas. It was the best vacation experience I ever had. The main point beeing that you don't have to do anything, your same room is with you while you cruise to many ports, no need to pack-unpack.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
This ship is 10 years old, but to be very honest it looks like new! Maybe the newer ships have better technologies that this doesnt have and I would like, for example, internet in the room.

Cabin / Stateroom

The room was much bigger then I thought it would be, it has all you need.

Just used as a port, I wish they had better/cheaper facilities to park your car during the cruise.

Good place for shopping

Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)

5 out of 5
Its a built port/location, very beautiful but very commercial as it's owned by the cruise line. The zipline is beautiful but way too expensive
Don't Miss: Roller coaster

Pros: variety of meals, night entertainment, facilities, room and room service, ports of call quality and the beauty of the eastern Caribbean

Cons: as we don't drink alcohol I would like to have a better choice of juices, and have soda be part of the package instead to pay another 100 dolars for 14 days of soda

Recommends Explorer of the Seas? Yes!
