Everything about Explorer of the Seas is simply wonderful. The staff were friendly, helpful and went above-and-beyond. Our room steward even came to check on me (multiple times) when I was suffering from seasickness! We had rough seas during one day, but the staff did everything they could to best accommodate. Our wait staff was awesome - first cruise for all in our party where the head waiter came to the table every night, and the waiter and assistant were simply wonderful.

The food was plentiful and always delicious, the ship itself was exceptionally clean and there were activities for all. We truly enjoyed our trip. Thank you, Royal Caribbean and thank you, BJ's!

Pros: everything

Cons: couldn't think of anything negative other than the weight gain!

The water was cool due to a passing storm from the week prior, but we truly enjoyed ourselves. We went to see the HMS Vixen shipwreck via glass-bottomed boat and it was amazing. The port itself is wonderful too, a great town to explore.

GO TO SAPPHIRE BEACH. Seriously, best snorkeling experience of our lives. We were dropped off at a resort on Sapphire Beach and our guide, Nigel, was so wonderful. We were handed our gear and waded right into the waters - Sapphire is directly off a coral reef so fish were everywhere! Then when you paddled over the turtle grass, barely off-shore, there were tons of sea turtles and sting rays to view. Breathtaking! The facilities were clean and it was a do-not-miss adventure!
