Explorer of the Seas extremely disappointing!
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Condition of this vessel is worn, dated and hot tubs and pools were not in use due to maintence.. this created an over load on the remaining operating pools and hot tubs!On a few occasions there were no clean More towels available from the pool attendant.. also Bar staff around the pool trying to Hawk bar drinks of the day felt very tacky! Children were everywhere no enforcement of Adult only pools and hot tubs.On a closing note every shore experience lacked staff to guide you to your activity.. no free handicaped help to assist you to the excursions.. I was forced to pay extra $$ for motorized assistance and on Labardee there were ample wheel chairs and attendents but there was pressure to pay them for the assistance.
Excursions assistance in most ports was non exsistant.. perticurly in the Bahamas! The local tour office could only offer up info on public bus which one had to walk a few blocks uphill to reach the main stop for pick up of passengers.. also impossible for a person with even mild walking issues!
The only praise I can sing on this cruise is about the ships staff.. If not for them this curise experience would have been a total disaster and dissappointment!
Never every again will I set foot on a RCL International Ship! Less
