"Also in Corfu, if you don’t book an excursion with Royal Caribbean, you will walk over one mile to get to the building where the private tour guides are located.Then the guide just kind of dropped us in the city and told us we had to walk back to the bus stop alone...."Read More

My first crossing

After more than 50 cruises (even because I am a retired ship auditor), this was my first crossing, which we decided to take because my son-in-law is one of the ship's officers and my daughter and grandson were together on this trip. We boarded the ship at Rome-Civitavecchia and disembarked at Miami 13 days later. I've been on board this ship many times for shipboard audits and I know well ...

We wanted to experience a few days in Rome before boarding the ship for our trip back to Miami. Ezplorer is one of our favorite ships. Perfect size and great service. Our favorite cruise director, Hello Clo and our favorite head waiter, Gianni were there to greet us when we boarded. We took early dining and had the best waiter and assistant waiter. Artha and Ayu--married from Bali. The lecture ...

I had seen a lot of reviews saying that Explorer of the Seas was outdated and needing of a refresh. However, we were overall very impressed with the ship as a whole. There were some scuffs and wind/sun damage outside, but that is to be expected. That never makes/breaks our cruise experience. We had an amazing experience sailing on the Explorer of the Seas to Greece and Croatia! We had an inside ...

Excellent cruise and itinerary

We were very impressed with this older ship, despite the fact that it could do with some further updating and is a little tired looking. It is a good sized ship, with lots of space and good public places. The itinerary in the Greek islands was great, and the ship’s tours we did in Kotor, Corfu and Argostoli were all very good. Our balcony cabin was spacious and kept very clean by our cabin ...

Unlike other reviews the staff is very friendly and helpful. We (6 persons) have not once met or encountered an unfriendly staff member. Service at the main dining hall is excellent, personal and friendly. Our waiters Iputu and Kadek were very nice. Yes, the ship is somewhat dated and it shows, but for us nowhere near what others have reviewed. Rooms were clean (other than the occasional ...

There is for breakfast and lunch massive queues, as Windjammer is too small for capacity of the ship. Apparently capacity of the passangers is 4200, Windjammer can hold I think roughly 1000.I stayed hungry or eating any food which I dislike as I couldn't get trough the counter l... Booked suites which is basically slightly large than balcony, not even sofa bed, only old dirty sofa. Ship is old ...

We have cruised with P&O, RC Symphony of the Seas, Virgin Scarlet lady, Morella, and by far this was the worst ship we have ever been on, this ship is well past its sell by date, falling apart, outdated. Entertainment was the worst I have ever seen, butlins is much better, people walking out 10 mins into shows, what really annoys me is that this was the 2nd most expensive cruise we have been ...

We have very few fixed weeks of vacation each year, and this was one of them. Took my 89 year old dad and handicapped nephew, hoping to find some interesting ports and ship entertainment and quality family time. The ship has NOT been renovated. Furnishings, both soft and hard goods, are old and worn. The Hallways smell strongly of must, mold and mildew. Rooms were better, however when moving ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

First ever cruise. We chose this cruise for its ports of call. Very impressed with the overall experience. Very good food, very clean ship. Staff was very accommodating to our requests, letting us pick our dining time and ensuring we had wine glasses in our room every night. We had a private excursion in Santorini at 830am and were told to wait in the conference room with others and we were ...

Disgusting ship, looks very dirty and fallen apart. Very old and not kept amenities, dirty old bed sheets and blocked shower drain, the hair dryer stops to work half way,it was not possible to dry the hair completily and I have short hair. Unfriendly personal at the poolbar and cafe. Crowed swimmingpool area, no rules in the jacuzzi, a lot of people at the same time and children jumping on it. I ...
