Explorer of the Seas

14 Night Italian Mediterranean Adventure (Southampton Roundtrip)

Ship: Explorer of the Seas

Cabin Type: Balcony

Cabin Number: 9650

Traveled As: Couple

Review Summary

The cabin and cruise staff were very good, the food on ship and the entertainment was very good but I was very disappointed on the fact that they changed the intinary and didn't notify me.....didn't find out until we had already set sail, the cruise was chosen specifically  for its intinary and the fact that there were a few sea days between ports, to make life easy for my mother who is in a wheelchair, the new intinary didn't include villefranche or Lisbon and it was six ports in six days.....rather tiring for my mother.. The Internet was overpriced at about $40 a day and necessary items like NyQuil were being marked up by over 300%......

Ship Tip

Double check your intinary before you leave and be aware they can change it without notifying you....
