Past experience on RCCL has been outstanding. This was far from that. Getting on was easy and painless. The cabin was very good and clean. Depending on where you were on the ship the service ranged from downright poor to above average. ... Read more

I chose this cruise for a group of 14, including younger grandchildren for the features they cited i.e. bumper cars, roller skating, and other very exciting activities. HOWEVER, no one advised us to pre-reserve...so everything was ... Read more

Chose this cruise because it left from Bayonne where I have family. It was easy to get to the port and the embarkation process was smooth and quick. I was on the ship in no time. I arrived fairly early and attempted to make a reservation ... Read more

We previously took an RC cruise to Alaska, which was wonderful (as well as a Caribbean cruise on another line), and several members of our 9-person group have taken multiple cruises. I think we all agreed that this was the worst cruise ... Read more

We chose this ship because it was new, close to home and we had never sailed for 9 nights. The ship is beautiful, the balcony cabins and bathroom are roomy, and it never felt over crowded. The Solarium was my favorite area. Along ... Read more

Big, new and beautiful ship. Lots to do on board, but because there are so many people (6000+) reservations were required almost everywhere. Lots of kids, 1650 on this cruise, many of them out of control. Wait times for the elevators ... Read more

We have sailed from Bayonne several times on the Explorer Of The Seas. Although it is a smaller ship it felt larger because there were not the "Anthem lines" as I call them, all over the place. Anthem boasts a 5,000 ... Read more
