  1. Down to fewer than 10 days before we cruise, so of course I'm thinking about the FOOD! I heard a podcaster mention the yummy smoothies available at the Vitality Spa on the bigger ships. Does anyone know if something like this can be found on Explorer? We have the Deluxe Drink Package, so I'm looking to get the most out of it, including beyond alcohol. Also, on less healthy note - are there donuts anywhere? Thanks! Fa
  2. We're booked on Explorer of the Seas December 4th. Looks like she is currently in Poole Bay in the UK. Come on down Explorer!!
  3. It's a bit early, but we will start packing on Wednesday...DW has already started pulling things out. Feel free to ask questions, before and during the cruise. Explorer of the Seas live report 12/13/19-12/22/19 I will try updating each day, but cruising vacation may get in the way. I will also try to “periscope live”-socialwork911-. I will try to post pictures here as well, if I can figure it out too. Itinerary: 12/13- Car service will pick us up at 9am, be at Port Miami around 10am to embark as early as possible. Sail away is at 5pm
  4. Hello. We just arrived back from a sailing on the Explorer (1/24-2/2). Had a wonderful time. Must say the staff onboard was exceptional. Very friendly and went above and beyond to be pleasant and helpful. Have not seen this on a ship in quite a while. It was noticeable and impressive. Also thought they are doing a better job in the Windjammer for lunch. Lots of easy to eat foods, like burgers and nachos, but also had a few different items every day to make it interesting. And nice big salad bar. The one big negative that we found was that they did not open the Diamond Lounge in t
  5. We have a 9 nt. 10/06/21 Explorer from Galveston. Waiting as well. Frankly I just don't care anymore. If we cruise, we cruise.
  6. Browser View Hello , I hope you and your loved ones are in good health. This journey we’re on together, as a society and industry, continues on like a marathon in every sense of the word. But where there is change – and there has been quite a lot – there is progress. And that is what we are seeing, slowly but surely. For the cruise industry, the promising news is the latest update from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). They came to the important decision to lift the No Sail Order and published gui

  8. Looking for main dining room menus leaving on 9 day cruise on the explorer- to ABC ISLANDS?

  10. So I read this morning that Carnival has canceled all cruises over 7 days through Oct 2021. Do you think Royal will follow? CDC says nothing over 7 days or anything port intensive. Mine is both. I have one now booked on Radiance (was changed by Royal from Explorer) for 9 nights in November 2021. I really thought we'd be safe on the COVID front by that time. Now I'm worried.
  11. Does the Explorer have the Solarium area with the Bistro? My wife and I went on a Med cruise on Oasis last year and really enjoyed that area. I can't find anything that looks like it on the deck plans for Explorer. Thanks for the help! Hooter
  12. Need some help. I'm putting together a group of 12 people. 9 adults. Most are veteran cruisers. 3 children. 8, 7, and 4 (first cruise for the kids). It looks like I have it down to Explorer (9 night) or Oasis (7 night). For me, nine nights is always better than 7, but the price goes up too. I've sailed oasis class so I know the pros and cons, but I have never sailed voyager class. Which would you select for the kids? Why? Which would you select for the adults? Why? tia
  13. Sorry late to this thread. Last time I was on Explorer in 2017 Alaska it was CL and DL just like in your pic. But the CL is gone on Explorer and there is now a SL where the DL used to be? Booked Explorer for June 2021 and have not been on since 2017. I believe the DL is now where the cigar room was? Also Explorer did not get her AMP correct?
  14. Last minute packing review, and it occurred to me: am I going to freeze while watching the ice skating show? Like pack jeans and a jacket? Or will a light sweater over a cotton dress be ok? I know everyone has different levels of cold tolerance, so somewhat subjective. I rarely feel the need to wear a sweater on the ship in general though so didn’t think about it while I packed. thanks!
  15. Can anyone advise me how many European type plugs there will be in a Junior Suite (cabin 1628) on board Explorer of the Seas? We would like to purchase adapters for each one of those outlets. Many thanks.
  16. Hello, I will be on my first RCI cruise in multiple years later this week; my first ever on one of Royal's big ships. I will be on the Explorer for 9 nights, and one of our ports is Labadee. I was wondering, from the more experienced cruisers, what are some Explorer/Royal "hacks"? ie, how can I get to the bow to watch the ship sail away (I think it's cool that you can do that on Royal), where is the best place to get a lounge chair on deck, what night is a must-do in the MDR, etc? Not having cruised Royal in multiple years, I don't know many anecdotes, and those usually
  17. Hey y'all, I just got home after a great 9 nights away on the Explorer of the Seas. I am planning to write a little review on here later detailing the hits and misses I experienced, but in the meantime, I'll take any questions from any future cruisers and answer them to the best of my ability! Happy cruising!
  18. Enjoy this video I made of the Royal Promenade on Explorer of the Seas.
  19. Might want to do it on our own. Last time we had a walking tour around the Mykonos town.
  20. I know these are not sold all the time, only when alcohol sales are lower than they like and no guarantees they will be available at all, etc.. With that in mind, wondering if any recent cruisers on Explorer of the Seas have seen them pop Up? Just curious if anyone happened to notice?
  21. I just returned home after an amazing 9 night cruise on Explorer. I was extremely concerned as I read reviews just prior to my sailing on Jan 10th but I must say this cruise, ship and staged were outstanding.. First embarkment was a disaster but I found out from the loyalty ambassador on the cruise that the delay was due to a couple not leaving the ship when they were supposed to 😔. I arrived at the port around 10:15 or so. Check in was a breeze and I really liked it however the wait to board was horrible .we were told that boarding would start no later than 11:15 or so we’ll it didn’t st
  22. Finishing up a great 9 night cruise on Explorer. Was very concerned by some reviews going into the cruise, but things have gone well. Service good to excellent (especially in Schooner Bar and Giovannis Table). Ship is older and shows her age in spots, but no major issues or anything impacting my cruise. I’ve enjoyed sailing on the last Voyager class ship that still resembles her original design. The 9 night itinerary is the best - perfect pace of sea days and islands (ABC).
