Good long break
Explorer of the Seas Cruise Review
Review summaryWe did allot of lounging on this cruise. So as long as we had a chair and a view we were happy.
Food and Dining
Nice pools with plenty of edge seating. Pool chairs can be hard to find after 10am
Good size. 4 total 2 with shade and 2 open
Rock Climbing Wall
Great. Wish more hours but it was super fun.
Not sure how the runner’s run on this unless it is very early. Crowded with the loungers and people do not follow the run/walk lanes.
Day Spa and Fitness Center
Great view. But very crowded in the mornings. Yoga mats need to be replaced. Maybe part of the upgrades coming up.
I play slots. So more bonus machines the better. Felt like they needed to replace some of the older machines. Non smoking section is small and did not have fun games.
Dunes Mini Golf
Needs more excitement. Very flat course. No color.
Loved the live orchestra. Plenty of seats. We watched a dance showcase and a comedian. Both shows were good. Much better singing than past cruises
It’s ok. Gets crowded quickly. Smoke smell from casino can inter this area due to the access in the center of the promenade.
Amazing. Date is reserved based on your muster station. They only do a few shows so if you miss your scheduled show you may not get to see it. FYI - First row audience did have some interaction with performers.
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Deck 4 goes around the ship with access to the helipad. My favorite place to grade a cup of coffee and watch the waves.
