Review of the Explorer of the Seas
Cruise Date: December 2011
Booking: Travel Agency
Embarkation: bayonne, nj.
Cabin number: 7579
Cabin category: inside promeade
11 days on explorer
well the food was good,i've had better and worse.the service was great in the windjammer cafe.as well as our room steward jeffery. cold for 2 days and rough water, but thats not the cruise lines fault its december.the islands were great. i prefer cococay to labadee.we did our own tours with taxi groups ,much cheaper only 20.00 per person about 2 hours.having a room over the promenade was great,we could see all the parades and no pushing,just sit in the window and watch. the watch sale was crazy,people pushing like black friday at walmart.a lot of senior citizens and electric wheelchairs on this cruise,my wife almost got run over on the promenade by one.the quietest place is on deck 14 midship in the crown lounge, spent alot of time there after breakfast. great childrens program for the kids,we watched them close out really enjoyable. just didn't like 3 days on the water to get to st. marteen and the half day in puerto rico. could've gone faster and spent more time in PR.

My wife and I took this cruise with another couple. It was our first and the Explorer of the Seas was the newest and biggest class of ship in the world. What a great cruise it was. The ship, being revolutionary in design, was just absolutely amazing. T...
