Not the best RC cruise I’ve experienced

I choose this cruise as it was a “sisters” cruise and the timeframe was perfect. Getting to embarkation was harrowing! I can’t blame RC but the port of Miami needs to seriously address the ingress /egress and congestion. It took an hour to go the 4 miles from the hotel to the port! We had the Key, so once we arrived- we quickly boarded. Lunch for Key in the MDR was just ok. I was ...

We were originally scheduled for February 2020 and again in 2021 but they were both cancelled due to COVID. Finally getting our itineraries together this time schedule worked perfectly. We enjoyed 99% of the trip. The staff was wonderful from customer service, room attendants, wait staff, spa personnel, and doctors all going out of their way to make it a joy. Great excursions and plenty to do ...

Service We always have excellent service from room stewards, dining room staff, and other crew members on Royal Caribbean. They are friendly and leave a genuine impression that they are trying to give you a great vacation experience. We had only one miscommunication regarding changing our dining time, which they were able to fix without any issue. Some of the crew doesn't speak the very best ...

We chose this cruise because it was long enough to relax and was within our budget. We loved it all. The food was better than we expected. The service crew was better than we expected. The ship was better than we expected. We spend more money than expected because the jewelry was great too. We'll do it again soon. We will probably go on a different ship next time just to see what the ...

This was a last minute planned cruise to celebrate a special occasion. We cruised 10 times with RCI since 2006, the last 3 times we cruised in 2017, 2019, 2021 we though that it would be the last cruise with Royal, we are of the same opinion after this cruise. Because it was a last minute and a holiday cruise, all our preferred cruise lines were sold out, so we booked Explorer. It was a very ...

After an awful cruise on Oasis of the Seas we were looking forward as a family to go onto Explorer of the Seas. One of the main reasons for choosing this ship was the flowrider and after being promised that it had been fixed prior to our sailing once onboard found out it was still broken.(needed a new pump) The sports team were fantastic and once fixed the following evening kept it open ...

Considering the low cost we paid for this sailing I was not sure what to expect. Wow what a truly wonderful week. I enjoyed every moment. It was full Royal Caribbean to the max. The crew were amazing, we walked directly into the MDR no wait. Chops and Giovanni's we're amazing and I was very happy with the MDR and Windjammer. Entertainment was excellent as always. We loved this ship so much we're ...

Here’s my review of our cruise on Explorer. We sailed from Miami (Terminal G) from July 3-9. Fast facts: • We stayed in an Owner’s Suite (cabin 1292 on Deck 10). • This was our 4th RC cruise: 2 on Symphony, 1 on Brilliance, then this. We went from Platinum to Emerald on this cruise, and will go to Diamond after our planned November cruise on Symphony. • We’re empty-nesters, so no ...

Our perfect day in coco cay was ...

EXCURSION BUYER BEWARE My husband and I were on 6 day western Caribbean Explorer of the Sea cruise that departed from Miami June 5. Overall, nice, good entertainment and hard working room and dining crews. The huge disappointment came from Jamaica Falmouth, where they canceled our excursion of choice to Rose Hall, after an hour of waiting, and offered Go Native excursion instead. By that ...
