Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

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.

Pros: The Activities staff and the people assigned to our dining room table.

Cons: The food in the dining room, not thebWindjammer

Recommends Explorer of the Seas? No.

Service and Staff
Byron, our Stateroom Attendant, was always helpful. Wait staff was always willing to bring extra food.
We had a great time with many of the activities, especially the enrichment lectures.
Ship Quality
We could see rust on the hull. Toilets were often not working. Ship was very clean.
Food and Dining
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.
Cabin / Stateroom
Lovely location in the center of the ship.we really enjoyed the veranda.
