4 out of 5

Our first cruise

Sail Date: August 04, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The staff could not have been more pleasant and accomodating. Our room was miraculously cleaned everytime we stepped out for more than 5 minutes. Royal caribbean must give personality tests to future hires. The serive was A1!

Pros: Everything! Wow! The service, food, atmosphere could not have been any better

Cons: People "saving places" at the pools. (Putting a towel on a chair and showing up hours later to claim it)

Recommends Explorer of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
I can't believe how clean they kept a ship with more than 3000 vacationers on it.
Food and Dining
I was not suprised by the quantity of the food. Everyone told me about the amount of food available. The QUALITY is what surprised me. It was like eating at a Zagat's rated restaurant every night. And the wait staff was just awesome.
Cabin / Stateroom
We had a balcony, which I would recommend. The views from the balcony were incredible. Big comfy bed, clean and ample bath and shower.
Service and Staff
They could not have been more accomodating.
I had to be talked into going to a show. After the first night, a comedy show, we winded up going out every night. From musicals to game shows, to jugglers, to karaoke. One show just got funnier than the next.
King's Wharf, Bermuda
Graet tour. Beautiful island. Most like th States of our stops. We saw the Crystal caves, the Zoo and the Aquarium. The tour to and from each was informative. A beuatiful island.
Don't Miss: Crystal caves
San Juan, Puerto Rico
The hours made it hard to plan anything. We were in port from 7:00 a/m til noon. We mostly walked around sightseeing and shopping.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
The view of Megan's Bay from Francis Drake's Seat was worth the price of the CRUISE! Megan's Bay was devastatingly beautiful. Shopping and a trip to Senor frogs, right on the port ended the best day of the crusie.
Don't Miss: Megan's Bay. Senor Frogs
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Orient Beach was the most beautiful ocean I've ever seen. Great drinks and food at the beach. Jus a little weird how they allow "solicitors" peddling their wares on the beach.
Don't Miss: Orient beach
