9 Night Southern Caribbean Cruise to the

Sail Date: January 01, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

The Explorer is headed to an overdue shipyard refurbishment period. The passengers have taken their toll on her. Even so\, she was clean and the staff was the most attentive and friendly we have have in many years.

Pros: The very low level of photographer pressure and bar service pressure at the pool

Recommends Explorer of the Seas? Yes!

Ship Quality
She needs a rest period and some TLC. The Prominade is nice\, but gets very crowded. If the passenger load had been a younger crowd\, I'm not sure I would have enjoyed it as well.
Food and Dining
Very Good. We have seen a decline in food quality in the past few years...but dining experience on this trip was a return to what we hope for. The My Time Dining is great - we never waited to be seated more than 4 or 5 minutes. Great move by all of the cruiselines on this point.
Cabin / Stateroom
Average doesn't mean our expectation weren't met. Our room was always clean\, avereage size\, typical cruise ship decor. Our Stateroom Attendent was very good.
Service and Staff
Some of the most friendly and attentive staff we have had in many\, many years.
This doesn't mean it wasn't good. For us\, it was average.
