We had a balcony room with an EXCELLENT Cabin Attendant! We had my time Dining but---you need to "read between the lines. Luckily, we were able to reserve our time and table and walked right in every night but the first---TIP: reserve your table for the same time and your wait staff---no waiting this way! Wait staff was great---Very short staffed though! they will take care of you! Canceling ...

The cruise: I am giving the Royal Caribbean Explorer of the Seas Experience a C-. This is why: The food was basic and unflavorable. I don’t think that is a word, but they need to adjust seasonings and flavorings. The deserts offered in the Windjammer where the buffet is served, all tasted the same: sponge cake with shipped filling; small cups of whipped toping and a fruit topping, cookies were ...

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 ...

Background- this was about our 15th cruise on Royal and we are diamond level. It was a husband, wife and 21 yr old daughter cruise. There were lots of disappointments as well as some good times. We are not snobs but we paid a lot of money for this cruise and it wasn't all what we remembered cruising to be like. Overall, any cruise is a good cruise and you have to roll with the punches which we ...

This cruise was two years in the making. It was our sixth cruise and sixth Royal ship. We booked this in May 2020 for June 2021 when prices bottomed out. Itinerary was originally: Labadee, DR, Anitgua, and St. Lucia (I think, it has been a while) on Independence. We booked this cruise because the price was phenomenal for an 8-day, and new ports of call. Of course, this was cancelled, and we ...

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. ...

Great activities, shows and crew. FOOD left a lot to be desired. Overall beautiful ship and would recommend it if you want to have a great time and you are not worried about top notch cuisine. Does have a lobster night on their 7 day caribeen. We didn't try any specialty restaurants so the food might be great if you do. Lots of space for everyone and so much to explore with this ship. Book ...

The ship is very, very tired and in need of a major overhaul. Rust all over the place especially at the balconies. Itinerary changed 3 times before we sailed. Even RCCL survey at the end of the cruise wanted us to review a port we did not even go too. My Time Diners had to wait over 2 hours to be seated. Food was very inconsistent and way below RCCL standards. Some venues were not open for diner ...

This was my first royal carribean cruise and the worst cruise I’ve ever had. The rooms are run down. The showers are tiny little cylinders. Many amenities were broken. Leaks in the hallways. It was always slightly dirty. The food is barely edible. No seasoning, watered down, and the only desserts that were NOT sugar free with in the restaurants or the broken ice cream machine. And the speciality ...

We chose this cruise because of the value and the ports (Grand Cayman, Curaco and Aruba) are some of our favorites. The itinerary changed a couple of times, but it ended up great for us. First and foremost, our room steward Danny He was very understanding of our specific desires for the cabin, he exceeded expectations in every way. He is patient, very friendly and extremely accommodating. ...
