This was my 5th cruise with Royal Caribbean, two of which were also Voyager Class ships including the Adventure and Mariner of the Seas. We enjoyed both of those ships as well.
The good definitely outweighed the bad when it comes to the Explorer. The itinerary of this cruise was great - we made stops at the ABC islands and Labadee, Haiti. The excursions that we chose were informative and thorough.For example, in Bonaire we did a glass bottom boat tour which I certainly recommend for those fascinated by marine life!
