Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Explora I

So, my wife and I started with our first booking on any cruise line in over five years with a spur-of-the-moment trip to the Caribbean. We literally booked the cruise from our home in the Dallas-Fort Worth area on 1/18/24 and landed in Barbados the following day (1/19/24), boarding Explora I that same afternoon. Let that sink in: After completing the booking mid-afternoon of 1/18/24, we ...

My wife loves to cruise -- me -- not so much. And as we live in Miami, the lure of the Caribbean is limited -- give me Key West, anytime. But just got back from the Explora, with dear friends, and it was truly amazing -- a floating Four Seasons is the best way to describe it. The restaurants were all terrific. The only so-so meal was my own fault. At Marble, the steakhouse, the server warned us ...

WOW! What a memorable experience we have had sailing aboard Explora I – literally the experience of a lifetime!! From the moment we set foot on Explora I, we watched the Crew work nonstop, going well above and way beyond to make sure that everyone’s experience is world class. Their eagerness to assist and their attention to detail – all the way from the Captain to the Room Steward – is ...

I have recently returned from Explora 1 Caribbean Cruise and would highly recommend this cruise. As an avid cruiser and been on many ships - this to me is more like a giant yacht with all the facilities of a larger cruise, however, smaller number of guests, giving you the cruiser a much more enjoyable experience. The ports of call were lovely (visiting smaller islands within the Caribbean ...

This ship is amazing. I really don’t understand any of the previous negative comments that I’ve read. All I can say is that, if all some people can complain about is the number of “nicknacks” on shelves, then it can’t be too bad! Come on, first world problems! The design of the ship is first class. No huge open spaces but lots of smaller quiet areas for relaxation and never very busy. The ...

Embarkation A shambles. Explanation given was a large number of passengers arrived within a short period of time although there was little sign of organisation by Explora staff for the hour plus we were standing in the midday heat. There were no cold towels and glasses of water only appeared shortly before the shuttle bus service to the ship commenced. Even onboard, where check in was taking ...

Huge Disappointment

Where do I start, from the minute I booked my cruise everything was a shambles. Having spoken to a number of shoreside staff prior to departure, they were either extremely rude or completely incompetent. Once onboard the ship, things didn't really improve. The food was excellent however they are already starting to make cutbacks in the quality compared to previous sailings. Some of the menu items ...

This new ship was recommended to us, by our Travel agent. It was a lovely ship ,just a few things need tweeking. The food and suites are amazing, the entertainment needs a bit of work and more guest artists the staff couldn't be more helpful, our cabin steward Rhoneill was so helpful. Some of the excursions needed a bit of looking into, but when we mentioned it you did feel like they took things ...

Just returned from the above cruise. What drew me to it initially was that it was a new ship with modern styling (no beige wood or colour in sight) and of course the prospect of some winter sun. This will be a very candid review (obviously only my opinion). The positives: Lovely ship as expected from the marketing. All the staff were excellent - polite and willing to help with any question or ...

We chose Explora because of their aspiration to be a lifestyle brand and I read other reviews saying children were not a problem on Explora - YMMV but wanted to let you know they were a problem on this cruise, and there are no policies in place that allow the staff to curb this issue (they recognise it as a problem but feel powerless to intervene). Perhaps it is just our sailing (29 December from ...
