A happy restful cruise
My husband and I had spent the summer and early fall in several feel better situations.As a result we looked forward to our time on The RC Explorer. Our first impression was that of a happy and caring staff waiting for us. We were delighted with our veranda stateroom, perfect location and quite roomy. The balcony needed a revamping of paint, carpet,furniture....our only negative..it was perfectly functional, however. The room steward for 8332 ( Ramdeo) was wonderfully and consistently accommodating ....smiling always. We had our first experience with " anytime dining " rather than out usual late seating choice. What a Great choice ...not only time wise but our waiters , Roy and Coco were super excellent in all aspects, from sharing meal information to service which left nothing to wait for or change. Thank you both. We were delighted to meet Coco's family during the Dominican port stop. Since we sailed with calm and rest as our primary objective RC was a delight from food to comfort.....we have been on many cruises this one ranked in the HIGHS.

Cabin / Stateroom
Very excellent for all ages .The staff was fun, helpful, and such a pleasure to chat with. The captain obviously enjoys his life's work, as he verbalized easily and informatively as needed or daily at noon. This radiated from his crew also.
