Explorer of the Seas

4 Night Best Of British Columbia (Seattle Roundtrip)

Sail Date: May 14, 2018

Ship: Explorer of the Seas

Cabin Type: Inside

Traveled As: Large Group

Reviewed: 7 months ago

Review Summary

Dinning room service seems to have been cut back. Appeared to have been short handed. (Looks like a corporate decision.) Service did improve as the cruise went on. Apparently there are limits on heating and cooling cabin set points which I do not consider reasonable when on vacation. (Again, looks like a corporate decision.) Lowest cooling limit was 71.5. Wanted lower for sleeping in interior room.
