Ship Facts: Explorer of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Explorer of the Seas Deck Plans
2nd time even better

Having been to Bermuda for the first time in 2009 we have been wanting to go back for quite some time. I found a very good price for this June cruise with Royal Caribbean.

The weather was fantastic, the shows were great, and the new menu on Royal Caribbean was definitely a nice change. (FYI the lobster tails are huge now)

This ship also has the freestyle coke machines that allow you to create all kinds of different flavours of pop.

Leigh Xuereb was the cruise director and he was great, very entertaining (he refers to himself as the love child of Ringo Star and Mr. Bean, and they is a great physical description).
We had a inside stateroom on Deck 8 and it was a very nice central location.

Bermuda was as beautiful as I remember and we bought the 2 day transportation pass (that does both buses and ferrys as much as you want). We spend the 1st day at Church Bay (very quite beautiful beach, would be good for snorkeling but it was a little too rough for it the day were were there), then walked to Gibbs lighthouse and enjoyed the great view from there. Day 2 we took the ferry up to St. George and spent the day at Tobacco Bay, not quite as quite, but still not that many people. Snorkeling was fantastic, saw so many fish including many Parrot fish.

All in all a wonderful cruise.
