Review summary

Explorer of the Seas is a Hugh, beautiful ship that is kept spotless. We opted for the My Time Dining. We made reservations before we left home. The two servers we had each night, Michael and Jeffrey were the best. Always cheerful, polite and just plain nice. The dining room food was incredible. Our room Stewart, not sure of his name but we were in cabin 6525, kept our room clean and always managed to do that while we were out of our room..

San Francisco & Victoria,British Columbia were beautiful and fun. Astoria, Oregon was pretty small and shops old. Not much to do there. People there friendly.

Cabin Stewart did a great job. Made cute towels creatures each evening. Always cleaned our room when we were out of room

Ship tip

Eat your dinners in the main dining room. More upscale choices. If you use My Time dining make reservations ahead of time, while still at home if possible.

Hop on hop off bus tour is a good choice but pay attention to where you get off because there are no signs to tell you where to pick bus up again. It is an easy walk from the ship to Fisherman's Wharf.

Victoria, British Columbia

Beautiful. We did the walk from the cruise terminal to Fisherman's Wharf and around into the city. Then took shuttle back to ship.
