  1. Just got got off the Explorer last week. She is in good shape. We had a great time. No smoking anywhere inside the ship. Loved it. Wouldn’t hesitate to book it again.
  2. So so we sailed out of Southampton yesterday. We arrived to the port at 9:30am...... we went through security and then a private line for key members. Fast and short. Sat down for about 15 minutes. Then boarding began. We were the very first ones to board the ship. The called key members and we went right on. Quick and simple.
  3. Thank you. I just gave it a try and you are correct. Except for the behind the scene ship tour. But the others listed a date and time. Thank you.
  4. I am interested in purchasing a few activities for our cruise this weekend. We are on Explorer of the Sea departing from Southampton. I was interested in Sushi class, cupcake class and the behind the scenes ship tour..... but it doesn’t list dates or times. Is this normal or am I missing it somewhere? Do these sale out or can I just reserve them once I am in the ship? Thank you.
  5. Thank you. Yes. I looked it up and our description was correct. Sorry you are having a problem. But our Spacious Balcony Cabin was only slightly more than the regular balcony cabin. So it was worth it for us.
  6. We do not smoke and try to avoid smoking areas. What are the rules for smoking and where are the smoking areas on Explorer of the Sea? My wife was told since our ship departs from Southampton in England there is no smoking allowed in the Casino. Good for us. I am worried that people will smoke on their balcony and we won’t like being on our bakaciny. What are the rules and do people follow them? Thank you.
  7. We are seasoned cruisers but first timers on RC. We booked an extra large balcony cabin. Cabin number 8520. Will I be having the same issue? We paid extra for the larger balcony room instead of the standard size balcony room. Now I am worried that I got bad info too.
  8. Thank you for the info. Greatly appreciated. 😃
  9. On my cruise paperwork I do not see a picture of the key (like some stated) or any indication that we purchased the program. I have the receipt and confirmation in a separate email. Will this be an issue boarding the ship? Should I call RC and ask them about it? Thank you.
  10. We are on the Explorer of the Seas next week. We purchased the key for our 14 day cruise. There are 5 of us. We were supposed to have reserved seating in the shows. Now I read some people post that you need to make an advanced reservation to get the reserved seats. I went on my cruise planner and can’t find anywhere to reserve seats. Does anyone know how to do this? Thank you.
  11. Thank you. They won’t turn me away way from the MDR?
