Excellent Time!: Explorer of the Seas Cruise Review by DrDiggz
Overall Member Rating
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 More 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.

Cabin 8525 Deck 8 Fore, port side Balcony Stateroom was perfect, far enough away from elevators as to avoid hallway noise, Tv's need to be updated to flat screens. otherwise a fine room.Read All Superior Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony (D3) Reviews >>
