Explorer + Bermuda = Fantastic
Embarkation: Bayonne (Cape Liberty)
The evening meals were always good and I was impressed with the comedians during the evening shows. The ice show (as mentioned on the boards) is REALLY good...not to be missed. The cruised director, Mike, from Australia was fun. Considering the age of this ship - we were all impressed with its condition. I am pretty detail oriented and I saw very few things that needed to be upgraded/replaced. In fact, my biggest concern about booking this particular cruise was the age of the ship and whether the most recent reconditioning was good enough. It was a great looking ship and I would recommend it to anyone.
We did not take any excursions with RCCL. We booked our own Segway tour in Bermuda and just LOVED it. We would do it again in a second. We also toured the island via the ferry and bus system and found it to be convenient, cheap, and educational! We only had 2 days in Bermuda. It would have been nice to have 1 more day! We did so many neat things and saw so much - my friends called me Cruise Director Julie.
The last day was overcast so we spent some time playing ping pong, shuffleboard and eating a lot!! Because we didn't buy much of anything we decided to carry our own luggage off the ship versus disembarking using color coded luggage tags. Because we had the "walk off" option we were in our car by 8:45 AM...again a very painless process just like the way we started the cruise! RCCL makes it easy!
We enjoy cruising and I am sure this won't be our last cruise. We love RCCL and would cruise with them again. We also loved Bermuda and would go back there again! Less
Cabin review: d28386
Enough space under bed to store large piece of luggage. Very quite - never heard anyone else! 8th floor was very convenient to everything. 3 floors down for dinner, 3 floors up for pool...we walked everywhere versus the elevators
