It was our first on Royal Carribean but have done 13 previous cruises, I would rate it as Very Good and recommend the Exployer of the Seas to everyone. The only negative was the Private dining at Portofino! It was far below expectations, the food was better in the dining room and the service was the poorest of the trip. I ordered Ice Tea and they brought Hot water, tea bag and a glass of ice!!! The resturant was completely unorganized and noisy. Carnival's upscale resturants were 100 times better. Other than that experience, great cruise, very excellent staff and an enjoyable 9 day event. I will do it again!
