Ship Facts: Explorer of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Explorer of the Seas Deck Plans
Pleasantly Surprised!

This was our first cruise we traveled with our 13 and 14 year olds. I was worried if the ship would be great due to other reviews on here. Just to get this out right off the back. If you're picky and looking for a top of the line ship with a brand new look and top of the line food then you need to keep looking. This is not to put down the ship at all I just felt the people that complained where looking for something more top notch.

Now on to my review, short and sweet. I thought the boat looked amazing for its age. They maintain it well. My only complaint was the carpet in the cabin hallways needs to be updated. Staff was amazing!! I cannot stress this enough they treated us like kings and queens. I loved all the food I ate at the main dinning. We had a set time for dinner and I would pick that again. Windjammer is your typical buffet style. I did always find something I loved! The kids liked having all the choices. We enjoyed all the ports and managed to make the most out of each one.

Royal Caribbean was wonderful and I'm so glad we chose them for our first cruise. They did not disappoint! I would highly recommend this cruise to anyone.
