Great cruise with the whole family

Sail Date: July 2012
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)

This cruise was so much fun! We are a family of 19-10 adults and 9 kids. There was plenty of activities for the kids throughout the day, that we basically saw them at dinnertime. We ate every night in the MDR, portions were small, but our waiter would bring extra entrees for us, even if we didn't ask.

Service was fabulous! Both waiters and housekeeping couldn't do enough for us. The windjammer always had a good selection, and the choices differed every day. The ship looked great, didn't notice anything that would've needed to be redone, or any type of odors. The promenade was usually bustling, but it never felt crowded (except on the 'party' nights-they were a blast!) There was so much to do, even on sea days, but we mostly relaxed at the pool deck.

Drinks were reasonably priced, although the wine prices seemed a bit high. The ports were nice, especially loved Bermuda, but not so much St. Martin. Puerto Rico was a short stay, so we just walked around the shops a bit. More Labadee was great, kids loved the aquapark, and the dragon coaster. The adults loved the blue waters and beach! All in all it was a great trip, especially since there was so many of us and we all had a good time. Less

Cabin review: Explorer of the Seas Oceanview Stateroom Deck 2 2342

Basic oceanview cabin towards the back of the ship. Very quiet hallway, short walk to the elevators. Decent bathroom, closet space. Plenty of storage space in the bathroom, and in the desk/vanity table.
