Explorer of the Seas Cruise Review by F6969

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2015
  • Destination: the Middle East
  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Balcony

We have been "Loyal to Royal" for over 20 years. This was the worst cruise of our life.

Cruise Director poor at best. When describing Suez Canal all that was said was " sand and more sand, lots of sand". Would have been nice to have commentary while transiting canal but we got nothing. Our toilet kept flushing on its own every night except the last 3 nights. Overflowed once. Food in dining room poor institutionalized . One item on dinner menu was "Vegetarian chicken chunks"

Guest lecturer on aviation was great however there was no place to sit except on floor or stand until 4th presentation after complaints to change to larger room.

After declaring level 2 nuro virus outbreak you think they would change serving procedures in buffet but that didn't happen.

We won't be booking RCCL anytime soon.
