Explorer of the Seas 2012
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
The WIBG "Wibbage" 94.3 Spring cruise with over 200 radio listeners. That is a lot of people to keep happy. Royal Caribbean did another outstanding job.
Five busloads made it through embarkation in less than an hour's time. My third trip on the Explorer - fantastic crew, great service, very friendly as always.
Food was consistently very good in the MDR and with only a very few exceptions very good in the Windjammer as well. Johnny Rockets was a nice treat.
Ship is older, but very well maintained. Very clean.
No tendering on this cruise - very much appreciated.
Almost no problems with lines or crowds. A full boat, but we never had to wait in long lines like past cruises.
RCL group activities were very well done - private cocktail parties, 60's dance party, trivia, photos.
Overall a big success! Everyone in my group was VERY pleased and we would certainly do this cruise again. Less

Cabin review: D11388 Superior Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony
1388 - the big corner room on the back of the tenth floor. Best D-1 on the ship. Quiet, but a hike from the elevators.Read All Superior Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony (D1) Reviews >>
