Stinky Explorer of the Seas to Bermuda
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
I give my thanks to the crew for getting us to Bermuda safely. We sailed thru gale force winds and at times thought the ship would topple. The captain and bridge crew got us to Bermuda safely.
Food on this ship was not outstanding. We found it to be okay and sometimes really not great. I actually felt at times that Carnival gave more choices and even better food. Spent extra for Portofino which was okay. Desserts were actually the best at some meals. The wait staff we had were great, made dinner enjoyable. Always a smiling face, a pleasant greeting for us.
This ship needs an overhaul in general. Many areas the carpet was stained, furniture chipped and stained, and the balconies need an extreme overhaul.
To make matters worse one of the couples, first time cruisers had a bathroom overflow. They were originally told they would be moved for the night and then placed back in the room which had the overflow. Now would you want to sleep in this room if it is not properly cleaned. After much ado and missing a show, we all stayed at the front desk with them to show support, they were moved to a jr suite which miraculously appeared on the computer after they were told no other rooms were available.
So our first time cruisers were disappointed, veteran cruisers felt sorry for them and hope they will go again, but on another ship and with another company.
We did get to spend five days with our friends, but it was no what we had hoped for. Less
