  1. It’s been over a year. 😥 November 19, 2019 on the Explorer.
  2. looking to book a cruise on the explorer and deck 6 balcony was an option... The rooms were over top of the the gift shops and we were wondering if they might be fairly quiet even though there is alot of music and traffic on that deck on this ship...thanks fo any help
  3. Last cruise was a 15 night Hawaiian cruise on Grand Princess end of November 2019. Last RCG cruise was on Explorer of the seas in October 2019. Graham.
  4. Just received an email that our 1/7/2022 cruise on the Explorer is now canceled and we can transfer onto the Radiance. I dot know rccl reasoning for this. They identified in the email that the itinerary is "similar destinations" to the original Explorer cruise, however looking at the Radiance cruise schedule, it is in no way similar destinations. Get your act together and keep the people happy to enable you to stay afloat. Grahaminca
  5. Wow, what great itineraries! Looking at dates and pricing for the 7 day "Southern Caribbean Explorer" which would be all new ports for me.
  6. I just saw RCI will be offering this itinerary from Barbados as well: 7 Night “Southern Caribbean Explorer” with stops at Scarborough, Tobago; Port of Spain, Trinidad; St. George’s, Grenada; Kingstown, St. Vincent; Roseau, Dominica; and Castries, St. Lucia. will be looking into this further.
  7. Our first time on Explorer was January 2008. We had 2 nights pre cruise in New York then a 12 night sailing from New York to the Caribbean and back to New York.
  8. Lovely choice of bread in Giovanni's Explorer and Fantastic food and service.
  9. Explorer was my first RCI cruise. That ship will always be special to me. I can still remember the itinerary.... Nassau, Ocho Rios Jamaica, Grand Cayman and Cozumel.
  10. Fantastic food and service on Explorer of the seas October 2019.
  11. There isn't one for our Oct on Explorer either. I thought of starting it, but it's a 9 day & will prob. be cancelled anyway.
  12. https://www.gibraltarport.com/schedules Gibraltar shows Jewel 5/21/21, Explorer 5/13/21 (and several more times), Indy 6/8/21, Anthem 6/30/21 (and a few others), Jewel 8/30/21 and 4/13/22 along with Indy and Anthem in '22.
  13. Agree, interesting but been 22yrs since was on Enchantment. Do remember and can see why she'd have Aft Anchor. Back 20-30+ yrs ago remember Tendering off Royal ships more often then ever walking off, this included St Thomas, St Martin, Labadee, Coco Cay. Royal Ships carried own Tenders inc Majesty, Sovereign, Enchantment, Grandeur, even on then new Voyager, Explorer had them.
  14. We have an 8 night cruise on Indy which leaves Miami on May 8, 2021. We booked this cruise last June at a great rate on Brilliance. RC moved it to Indy which was fine with us. I doubt if this cruise will go so I started looking at L&S options. I soon discovered that since L&S ends on April 30, 2022 my only cruise options all leave in April 2022 which I can't make because of work. There is a cruise in May on Explorer that is the same as the offering in April. Has anyone tried to call and see if they will allow a L&S into the second month since the cruise is eligible for a partial
  15. Hi I booked a November 14th 2020 FOS cruise which was cancelled so I L&S to Empress November 6th 2021 cruise. This cruise has now been cancelled and no L&S option shows. Would it be reasonable to ask RCCL to move the booking on one day to November 7 2021 Explorer of the Seas cruise and have the price protected or would I have to pay the now higher prices on the Explorer. The other 2 cruises on the Freedom I had booked for November 14th and 21st 2021 had the option to move them to the Explorer for the same dates after they were cancelled last month. Thanks.
  16. Do all of the balconies have glass under the railing? I've seen videos where some are solid and some others have glass. Is there a difference based on deck?
  17. In discussions with current officers and crews onboard various ships throughout the world, it looks like Royal will be doing “soft” opening dates - meaning cruising isn’t going to all resume on May 11th fleetwide. This has also highlighted by a recent article about Carnival, discussing “hot” and “cold” layups of various ships - meaning keeping some ships with full crew and keeping other ships with just the essentials. It will take 3-6 weeks to get “cold” layup ships (essential crew only) to get all crew back, 2-3 week quarantine of crew, and then provisioning. RCL is choosing specifi
  18. Thanks Biker but I checked for a roll call just 2 days ago and couldn't find one...maybe I'm doing something wrong...I'll check again, thanks. I just found it but the title is confusing, instead of saying roll call for Radiance of the Seas Nov 12 2021 it has a long title "What used to be the Explorer, now the Radiance Nov 12 2021. I DID see that before but when I clicked on it, it didn't actually say it was a roll call but looked more like a regular thread...till I saw the Cruise Critic Host give instructions on how to title the roll call. There appears to be only one person on the
  19. Really bummed about this one as it was the cruise we were doing for our 30th anniversary. Wonder if they'll extend the date of our FCC we used to book it. Their offer for the change is $50/$100 OBC (depending on your cabin selection) if you rebook a Trans-Pacific or Repositioning cruise by November 24th. I don't see myself rebooking at the current prices and lack of itinerary. I get they are trying to stay alive but this one is really disappointing along with what I view as a trash offer. Edited to add: I just received the email today for verification.
  20. Just received an email that our 2/6/2022 cruise on the Freedom is now canceled and we can go on Explorer. Sorry but not even close to a win win. I was so happy to go back on freedom class especially after the updates. Where will the freedom be? thanks!
  21. I was on aft 1548 on Explorer. Which of course adds no value to the OP's question
  22. I've stayed in 1690 on Explorer, so the mirror of 1390. We loved it, although no stripper pole, lol. I don't think you can go wrong with either of them to be honest. Also, we didn't hear anything from the Windjammer.
  23. As an update my wife phoned RC today to ask about Lifting our May 8'th cruise on Indy to the April 30 cruise on Explorer in 2022. I decided that I can make that date even though it will be close. The RC agent indicated that this cruise wasn't eligible for a Lift because it had already been Lifted once?? He would not do anything else even though we told him that our account showed that the cruise is eligible for a Lift to that date in April. We ended the call and did the Lift ourselves and now are waiting for the confirmation email which can take up to 72 hrs. Thinking about it after I remember
