Explorer of the Seas - 7 Night Alaskan Cruise

Sail Date: August 12, 2016

Reviewed: 2 months ago

Traveled As: Family w/young children

Room Type: Balcony

Alaska's breathtaking views coupled with the service of Royal Caribbean makes for a perfect vacation!  Explorer has wonderful amenities and activities for kids of all ages, as well as adults.  I've found with other cruise lines that activities seem to be catered for a particular type of audience or age group, but Explorer had something for everyone.  The ship is beautiful, the service we received was outstanding, and the food was excellent.   This was my first time sailing with Royal Caribbean, but it will definitely not be my last!

Cabin / Stateroom
Having a private balcony was very nice, especially for an Alaskan cruise. We enjoyed the inside passages without having to find a spot on deck. Also perfect for whale watching.

Food and Dining
Exceptional service and the quality of food was outstanding. Excellent menus.


The ship is very big and has a lot to offer. I would recommend familiarizing yourself with the layout before you cruise so that you have an idea of where amenities and activities are located.
