Sail Date: Nov 2016
Cabin: Grand Suite

We just returned from a 30 night – back-to-back cruise on Explorer (Haifa to Rome and Rome to Miami). The first two weeks were in a F1 suite and the second segment we were in a Grand suite. This review is very long so I’ll separate sections so you won’t have to read things that you are not interested in.


We flew Air Canada (Regent deviated air) from Vancouver to Tel Aviv with a stop in Toronto. The first flight was in a 777—200 aircraft which seemed fairly new. Business Class pods were very comfortable. Service and food was good. The next flight was on the new 787 Dreamliner. Pods were the same as the 777-200 but this plane felt a bit older but was quieter. Flight attendants are not happy with this plane as there is very little room in the galley). We would fly Air Canada again (either type of aircraft).
