Review summary

Love the design and layout of the Explorer . Desiree Parks, our Cruise Consultant is always available and helpful in our planning process. We have spent a lot of time in the Eastern Carribean on private sailIng charters. This region has the infrastructure for tourism and we feel that the Western Caribbean is in the early stages of building up these countries for tourism. Would not recommend this cruise because of the ports of call destinations.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Enjoyed the ship’s main dining rooms and buffets. Enjoyed our meal at Prime 7 but overall feel that the specialty restaurants are over rated and menus are too limited. Appreciate the availability of table for 2 and 4 people in all restaurants.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Enjoyed the pool, library, track and activities available in the top deck of the ship.

Cruise companies have recently built the “resort” for the cruise ships. Went on a snorkel excursion which was to be a 45 min. Excursion. We were in the water for 15 min and then were told there was a crocodile in the water and we had to get out of the water right away. No one else was getting out of the water and no alerts were being given from the shoreline. Turns out the group doing the excursion needed our equipment for a larger group that just came in and took our equipment quickly to redistribute.

George Town, Grand Cayman

Beach town. Did a snorkel tour but the water was too cold. The catamaran sail was great and enjoyed being out on the water.
