Explorer of Seas Cruise

Sail Date: July 2014
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Bayonne (Cape Liberty)

I won't bore anyone with a long review, so her it goes.....Cape Liberty port is disgusting, but you're not there that long so no bigeee. Parking was $171.00 for (9) days. The ship is definitely outdated and in need of an overhaul. It's very 90'sish, colors are old and our room had a box TV. We were never in the room, so it was easy to deal with. Our stateroom attendant was awful, she was never around so we made do. The food was excellent in the dining room and the staff there were AWESOME !!! The buffet upstairs (Windjammer) was good, a lot like the Golden Coral on steroids.....We didn't try the specility restaurant. The pool area was a lot of fun just small. The entertainment was OK, I've been on other ships where the talent was amazing, but it was still enjoyable. The ports were fantastic and it was very easy getting on and off the ship. I'm not a big gambler, but I heard several people complain that the slots didn't pay out that much. Go see the C Wind band in the Viking Crown, More THEY WERE THE BEST ! Overall, we had a great time and would do this cruise again. I was told the Liberty of the Seas is replacing this ship, so that's a good thing. My review 4 out of 5 Less
