  3. Explorer of the Seas
The WIBG "Wibbage" 94.3 Spring cruise with over 200 radio listeners. That is a lot of people to keep happy. Royal Caribbean did another outstanding job. 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.

Cabin Review

Superior Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony
Cabin D1 1388
1388 - the big corner room on the back of the tenth floor. Best D-1 on the ship. Quiet, but a hike from the elevators.
