No big deal: Explorer of the Seas Cruise Review by C.Dogg
Overall Member Rating
No big deal
Embarkation: Bayonne (Cape Liberty)
Advertising on board was shameless, to the point where you couldn't sit anywhere without having to move a cardboard sign out of your way. Many of the key service staff could only speak from a script, and knowledge about the ship's activities or destination was limited to what he cruise line sold. As a fellow cruiser said to me during the trip, "They're a very secretive company."
The food was fair, but I eat better at home. The ship was clean, but the space was as More cramped and awkward to move through as I've ever experienced on a cruise. There were many dead-ends, blocked exits, and pinch points as crowds tried to move through the common areas.
I'm surprised that this cruise line came to us so highly recommended. It felt like an airline journey, and we had to work hard to find fun and fun people. Less
Cabin review: E1 Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony
Our balcony cabin was efficient, but had little extra and was a little outdated. The large tube TV, leaking toilet and lack of comfortable seating were drawbacks, but nothing was worse than the incorrect instructions to operate the safe that were printed on the door.Read All Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony (E1) Reviews >>
