12 Night Southern Caribbean (Cape Liberty Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 11, 2011
Ship: Explorer of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago

The ship was somewhat seedy. Carpets were worn. Many people became sick from the ventilation and from spoiled salmon served on Day 10 of the cruise. The Stateroom Attendant was wonderful, as we're the people on the Activities staff. I was very impressed with the way that the ship celebrated Chanukah and Christmas.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food in dining room was mediocre. Turkey tasted like it came from a diner, and fish tasted too fishy. Wait staff was very attentive, but mixed up orders frequently, sometimes bringing appetizers after the main course was served and finished.

We had a great time with many of the activities, especially the enrichment lectures.
