Good value

Sail Date: November 10, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Although large, the ship did not seem to be "too big". Food was good and staff was generally excellent.

Pros: General high quality of the food

Cons: There always seemed to be an "upcharge" and charges were not always posted.

Recommends Explorer of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
Public rest rooms could have been working a little better and a little cleaner.
It seemed bands did not play during the shows. For those who don't like the shows, it would have been nice if at least one venue would have had live music at the same time.
Food and Dining
Food quality was very good across the board. My Time Dining could use a little more work. We had our time and table size and some nights had trouble getting seated.
Cabin / Stateroom
Stateroom was great with a lot of storage. Some sort of soot would show up from time to time on the bathroom floor (although easy to wipe away).
Service and Staff
Staff was very well trained and very friendly (with the exception of one member at the rock climbing wall who was nasty, but apparently dealing with some personal issues).
Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)
San Juan, Puerto Rico

Don't Miss: Fortress at El Morro.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
Sailing on a 12 meter boat was a must. Shopping was very good.
Don't Miss: Sailing on a 12 meter boat.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

Don't Miss: Snorkeling at Coci Beach.
