Explorer of the Seas, Bahamas

Sail Date: March 31, 2013

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We enjoyed the cruise, the ship, the food, the ports? Not so much. Nassau should be avoided. Our stateroom was roomy, the sliding door was a nice feature as it could stay open on its own. We loved the balcony.

Service was good except on the Royal Promenade. Staffing levels were low in the eateries and bars and it was annoying to have to wait so long for a coffee or drink.

The ship is older, however well kept. The service was great. Food was very good both in the Windjammer and the Dining room. Didn't feel Portofino was worth the extra cost however the murder mystery dinner was a lot of fun.
