Additional details

Sail Date: Feb 2020
Cabin: Interior

Explorer is headed for a much needed face lift in April 2020, so one cannot judge the ship by its current condition - this class of ship is our favorite, big enough to have all the amenities but not overly huge like the Oasis class.

Sub par weather for first three days dampened the beginning of the cruise but the ABC islands are lovely and we enjoyed good weather for final week.

Entertainment was spotty - we still love the live orchestra and the ship dancers were very good, ice show was above average and one of the acts (Barricade Boys) was great. Horrible "comedians" and less than average singer in Schooner Bar.

Cabin Review


In 200 nights, first time we have ever tried an inside cabin and it was more than - inside deck 9 was quite quiet and you certainly will find it dark after lights are out - we slept well
