A little tired

Sail Date: November 2011
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: Other

We have cruised Royal Caribbean exclusively and are Diamond members. Our last cruise on Explorer of the Seas was not the best. The ship is a little "tired" and needs an overhaul. The staff was, as usual, great but RC seems to add more and more items that are "for an additional fee".

The ports were all in the middle of the cruise and cruising days were at the beginning and end which made the cruising days cold and windy as we sailed from New Jersey. St. Kitts needs to be removed as a port of call...very dirty with little to warrant a visit. We are cruising on Liberty of the Seas in late December and are looking forward to a better experience.

Cabin review: Explorer of the Seas Oceanview Stateroom Deck 2

good room if you are sailing on calm seas. Larger than normal and very quiet as it is at the very front of the ship overlooking the helipad. Seems like there was a lot of "booming" sounds in the early morning.

Port and Shore Excursions

terrible, very dangerous and difficult to get to with the roads being little more than cart tracks. Would definitely not recommend.
