The Explorer of the Seas is a beautiful ship. We loved the coziness of it.

Embarkation was a cluster and many waited a long time! Lack of staff was part of the issue.

Dining each night took 2 solid hours, and the food was not RC's standard. We were told that the ship was extremely low on staff, and other staff were pulled into dining to cover. One night, the kitchen was down 20 staff.
