11 Night New Zealand (Sydney Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 12, 2016
Ship: Explorer of the Seas
Cabin Type: Suite
Cabin Number: 1588
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Worst boarding process ever.   It started off the cruise on a very sour note.  I was told that we would have coffee in our suite every day.  On day three the cabin attendant said that they were out of coffee.  After complaining to the concierge, somehow they miraculously found enough coffee to keep us supplied for the rest of the cruise.  Debarking was not quite as bad as embarkation.  They had no signs indicating that you could leave via deck 1 as well as deck 4.  So, of course, everyone lined up almost the length of the ship.
