Good experience but moderate value

Sail Date: April 23, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/young children

Room Type: Oceanview

Generally good experience, though value was at best OK in that they tend to "nickel & dime" additional costs into the onboard experience. This detracts substantially from the overall impression, and is clearly a problem with management philosophy.

Pros: Service staff

Cons: Nickel & dime financial philosophy

Recommends Explorer of the Seas? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Excellent service staff who are friendly and helpful.
Ship Quality
Ship was attractive and nicely laid out. However, public areas, particularly carpeting, appeared dirty and sometimes worn out.
Food and Dining
Food was generally ordinary, though adequate. Dinner offered only one mid-higher end choice, where other cruises offer more. Numerous items one would think would be included (e.g. espresso) are at extra cost. Value OK.
Children's Programs
Very limited programs for kids under 3, though the staff were nice and professional.
King's Wharf, Bermuda
Beautiful setting with nice weather. Public transportation is touted as excellent, but recent financially-driven schedule cutbacks proved inconvenient.
Don't Miss: Hamilton city
