Very nice cruise, goods ports of call and just the right number of days. Ship is a little dated, but is scheduled to be renovated soon.

Excellent by plamb

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Explorer of the Seas / Destination: Caribbean

Cruising is our families preferred vacation. You are spoiled and don't have to figure out what to do and where to eat everyday. It is easier to relax and enjoy your time when everything is available to you on the ship and the ports.

Our very relaxing cruise on the Explorer of the Seas by mickeyrg

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Explorer of the Seas / Destination: Caribbean

Again, we love this size ship and enjoyed everything about the ship except food in the dining room is not as good of quality as we have in past cruises either with RC or other cruise lines.

Absolutely amazing! by davepierson4065

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Explorer of the Seas / Destination: Caribbean - Southern

This is our second cruise and will continue to book our next one on that years current cruise. It is always an amazing experience. The only complaint I would have (and it may seem petty but I do think it is something that should be offered automatically) is the fact that real cream is not offered at any dining room, buffet, or the cafe unless you ask for it, and then most waiters didn’t understand what u were asking for because half and half is at every station. The half and half is milk. No cream at all and it doesn’t come close to lightening up the coffee enough for someone who enjoys many cups a day. The first cruise we went on it was almost impossible to get cream even after asking. This cruise we were taken care of very well but had to ask every day in the buffet. I’m thinking this should be an easy fix, and would make many cruisers very happy.

We had a great time by thecooper1

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Explorer of the Seas / Destination: Caribbean - Southern

We had a wonderful time. We loved the pre-recorded ballroom dance music. We enjoyed the zumba and fun fitness classes, as well as the ballroom and line dance classes. We really enjoyed the ice skating shows as well. The food and service were very good. We suggest discontinuing the piped in music in the Windjammer. It is often loud and the selection of songs does not make for a pleasant eating experience. The accoustics in the theatre can be very loud, especially when the singers in the shows are performing. We had to leave the theatre on one occasion because the amplification of their voices was ear-piercing. We really enjoyed eating at the buffet in the Saphire Lounge. Thank you for a wonderful cruise - we will be back!

Another good time by GrandmaMare

Ship: Explorer of the Seas / Destination: Caribbean - Southern

One hour time zone change during cruise. Felt that these beaches were nice, but would be just as happy with Eastern & Western Caribberan, which are closer.

Underwhelming cruise by mtmk0586

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Explorer of the Seas / Destination: Caribbean

A 2006 cruise on Royal Caribbean was wonderful. This cruise did not meets those standards. I hope it is not a trend that you can only get excellent service if you pay extra.

Wonderful Caribbean Cruise by gartzkem

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Explorer of the Seas / Destination: Caribbean

Overall, felt like a great experience for the money. Nassau was a bit disappointing, Labadee was beautiful. Ship's decor is a bit outdated but amenities, staff and food were all excellent.

Great value! Great Caribbean cruise! by tdm5ef

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Explorer of the Seas / Destination: Caribbean

We really enjoyed our 5 night cruise on the Explorer. My husband and I are in our late 30's and really just wanted a quiet, relaxing vacation. This ship was perfect for what we needed. It was a great value too! We have 2 pre-teen kids and I probably won't consider this ship a good fit for them, though.

Great Cruise taking us away from the winter weather by regiscampbell

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Explorer of the Seas / Destination: Caribbean - Southern

We really enjoyed our cruise, and were happy to visit Aruba again while visiting Bonaire and Curacao for the first time. This was our second cruise with Royal Caribbean, and we would have no hesitant to go again -- especially in the winter months since we live in Pennsylvania!

Visiting the A-B-C islands in the Netherlands Antilles by elissa56905123

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Explorer of the Seas / Destination: Caribbean - Southern

We had a great time with friends who we had dinner with each night in the main dining room with a great waitstaff. Bring extension cords for your room as the outlets are not where you need them. The Netherlands Antilles islands were beautiful.

We were upgraded to an Owners Suite by tew3622299

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Explorer of the Seas / Destination: Caribbean

I cannot say enough about the all ships tour. It is simply the highlight of things to do onboard. And while we were upgraded for wich we were happy about, you would think when I received notice on Friday PM of the upgrade that by Sunday, 1:30 PM when we were allowed in our stateroom, RCI would have our names corrected from the previous cancelled guests to ours. While the ship's Customer Service personnel and Concierge continuously got our name incorrectly. Even at the Noon reception for suite guests, on Wednesday, the Concierge, introduced us as the previous cancelled guests. Bottom line, my wife and I felt as though we did not belong. Aside from that issue, we enjoyed the cruise and will continue to be loyal to RCI.
