Sail Date: Oct 2015
Cabin: Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony

It has been on my bucket list for years to sail thru the Suez Canal and my husband and I decided to book on Explorer of the Seas sailing from Barcelona.

Embarkation was fairly swift and our balcony cabin was excellent. It was kept very clean & tidy by our Cabin Steward (Jose).

We opted for My Time Dining and had no problems booking our desired time for dinner in the dining room. We alternated between the dining room one night and the buffet the next.

Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony

Cabin E1

Excellent balcony cabin on Deck 8. Close to lifts but never noisy. Lovely balcony with table and chairs. Bathroom, only fitted with shower which was great as did not have to climb in and out of bath. Couldn't fault our cabin.
