  3. Explorer of the Seas
Left for Cape Liberty out of Massachusetts using a tour bus. The driver of the bus was great, very friendly and seemed to enjoy his job. After his last stop he played "Wheels on the Bus" and as we entered New York he played Frank Sinatra. No problems with getting on the ship probably a total of 30 minutes from when we got off the bus till we embarked. After traveling all morning and not being able to get lunch we headed up to the windjammer. We made the mistake of getting our food and then looking for a table because the place was extremely busy. Took us about 3 laps around the place before we could get a table. We noticed 2 women looking for seats and invited them to join us. Our luggage arrived to our room around six. Had coffee promptly delivered in our room at seven am the next morning when we requested. There was not a day gone by on the cruise where we didn't see an employee cleaning, shinning or polishing something. Three room stewards on our floor got to know our 9 yo daughter by name and were so nice. Food at night in the dinning room was great. Tried Johnny Rocket's per request of my daughter. She loved the burgers. Daughter loved Ocean Adventure, she couldn't spend enough time there. It was a great crowd on the ship. Didn't see any unruly people. Was happy to spend all our time in King's Wharf. Snorkeled at Snorkel Beach. Only cost 20$ to rent flippers,mask, and fins. Other then that spent majority of the time kicking back and sampling the drinks of the day. Plan on going back same time next year.
