Explorer of the Seas Cruise Review by DrDiggz
- Sail Date: February 2013
- Destination: Bahamas
- Cabin Type: Superior Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony
The Dining room food was amazing and cooked to perfection and our waiter was excellent and catered to our every need quickly. The Windjammer Cafe was very good as well but became boring because of the lack of different choices during the trip, same food over and over again...
The only problem I encountered was with an extremely rude bartender in the casino royale bar. A quick trip to guest services and the issue was taken care of immediately, never saw that bartender again for the whole week and we were given and apology and some chocolate covered strawberries that were sent to our room. We opted for the Premium Inclusive alcohol package for $55 a day per person and it was well worth it.
Our stateroom attendant was amazing as well.
Overall a vacation to remember and I will definitely be cruising with Royal Caribbean International again, hopefully on either an Oasis class or the new Sunshine class.
P.S. I asked some of the officers as well as the Captain about the Quantum of the Seas and they hinted that the ship would be sailing out of either New York City or Cape Liberty N.J.and that it would be a cold weather/warm weather conversion ship slightly larger then the explorer. but they also stated that they were not allowed to say anymore about it as per the Big Wigs at Royal Caribbean.

NassauJust hop on a cab and for $4 a head you are dropped off at Atlantis on Paradise Island, explore the resort or walk through Atlantis to Cabbage beach which is free. I would not advise using the local banana boat and jet ski rentals. locals are too pushy.View All 5,278 Nassau Cruise Port Reviews
