Ship Facts: Explorer of the Seas Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Explorer of the Seas Deck Plans
Food and Entertainment onboard Exployer of the Seas

Ship: Was clean and well maintained. The new soda vending machines with over 100 choices was very neat and convenient. It was really neat to have a small shopping mall right on the ship with bars/pubs mixed in throughout. The wife could shop and I could grab a drink.

Activities/Entertainment: We always enjoy the shows that are offered, And for the first time we saw the Ice Skating show WOW!! This is not something that you want to miss. This was a fabulous show although, plan on taking a Jacket or sweater. It is a ice skating rink onboard and yes it is chilly.

Love and Marriage Gameshow: This is one of RCI shows we had on prior ship, but again very funny and another you dont wanna miss.

The Quest: Another RCI show we had on prior ship, but this time I was a Team Captain and had a great time. This was held in the ice rink and the covered the floor with a wooden floor. Due to the ice under and the air warmer the floor was slippery, so they asked us to take our shoes off so we wouldnt slip and fall. I sure was glad to have socks on as some did not. Very cold feet.

Battle of the Sexes: Another of RCI shows that is very entertaining that of course the guys one. Prior sailing the girls won, This is another show that is fun to watch but more fun to participate in.

There are bands, comedy shows(adult comedy so no kids), dancers magical show all shows we saw we thought were great,

Our cabin was plenty large enough for the time we spent in there. It was nice to be able to see outside lying in the bed. The curtains/blinds were dark enough as well if you wanted to take a afternoon nap which we did a few times. The bed and bedding was extremely comfortable. Our room attendant (Walter) was wonderful.

BIRTHDAY PACKAGE:: I bought this package for the wife and although very nice RCI Messed it up on numerous times. Dates were wrong, cake was delivered to wrong place and time. However our room attendant got her a bottle of champagne and two glasses, to make up for the mistakes. All in all it does not matter if you call ahead to make sure everything is set up and correct as they messed it up anyway. Very disappointed with all of the mistakes, but RCI did not charge me for the package due to all of the errors.
