Explorer of the Seas Cruise Review by jimbob98
- Sail Date: March 2012
- Destination: Eastern Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Superior Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony
Five busloads made it through embarkation in less than an hour's time. My third trip on the Explorer - fantastic crew, great service, very friendly as always.
Food was consistently very good in the MDR and with only a very few exceptions very good in the Windjammer as well. Johnny Rockets was a nice treat.
Ship is older, but very well maintained. Very clean.
No tendering on this cruise - very much appreciated.
Almost no problems with lines or crowds. A full boat, but we never had to wait in long lines like past cruises.
RCL group activities were very well done - private cocktail parties, 60's dance party, trivia, photos.
Overall a big success! Everyone in my group was VERY pleased and we would certainly do this cruise again.

LabadeeA few showers started our day but by 10am it was all sunshine. The only ship in port, so the crowds were manageable. Very clean, lots of things to do. We did the Kayak excursion, very nice. Enjoyed the food and the beach. A nice treat after the at sea days! Got to get a Labrodoozey!View All 1,453 Labadee Cruise Port Reviews

San JuanHalf a day is not much time to experience San Juan. Took the free bus up to El Morro and walked back down. Done most of the other excursions. Bacardi Rum tour was well received, or was it the Bacardi Rum that was well received?View All 3,094 San Juan Cruise Port Reviews
