5 Night Bermuda (Cape Liberty Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 03, 2013
Ship: Explorer of the Seas
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 4 years ago

We've been on over 20 cruises. This was my second least favorite.
PROS: Really nice staff
Ship is kept up really well
CONS: 1. only one 24 hour place to eat on ship with really limited selection
2. no midnight buffets
3. entertainment really really lacking...not much to do....entertainment seemed to be geared for the older set
3a. for instance, evening shows were all production shows. where was the comedian; the mentalist/hypnotist; the cirque type act; the improv
4. the ship did not provide much entertainment in the alternate lounges so too much downtown
5. like all cruise lines - very difficult for the 18 to 20 year old group - too old for 'teen lounge' and not old enough to drink. RC promises a separate 'club' for that group and i called before booking and was reassured. it wasn't ture. that age group is lumped together with everyone else on the ship who is an adult so was disappointed

SUMMARY; ship was nice; staff was nice; food was average. otherwise boring (never felt that way about a cruise before) and deceptive advertising on things to do for the 18 to 20 year olds
