Explorer of the Seas - Bermuda - 10/2013

Sail Date: October 06, 2013

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

The Explorer is a great ship.  We first sailed her 12 years ago and I can state that without qualification, she has aged gracefully and is in very good shape. 

On most cruises the elevators are a great bottleneck, on this cruise that was not the case; people actually were courteous and not pushy!!!  In fact, the passengers and crew on this cruise were some of the friendliest and most pleasant we have ever met.

Embarkation at Port Liberty was very smooth.

See the sail-away from The Viking Crown Lounge.  You get a tremendous view of the Harbor and going under the bridge is awesome.

Seas were very smooth throughout.

Bermuda is Absolutely Wonderful.

We had MTD and that worked out great for us.  Had room service for our "wake-up" coffee but our breakfast was in Windjammer.  (We love the variety and they do really great omelets.)  We ate in Portofino one night and the food and service were outstanding. 

Cruise Director Leigh is superb and the entertainment was good;  Quest, Love and Marriage etc. are always fun. The ice Show was excellant....we were not totally awed by the "Featured" guest entertainment but it was decent.

All in all, we were well pleased and would absolutely recommend this cruise.
