  1. Our family's road trip for next summer (assuming I will ever be allowed to leave my state...) is wrapping around a cruise out of Galveston. I had my eyes on Carnival Dream, but with room inventory so low for our weird group (9 people in three staterooms) I also decided to look at other lines. Explorer OTS has a cruise on 5/19 that would work out well timing wise and the cost is similar (though one day shorter-Dream is six), as are the ports. Comparing ships is like buying mattresses... but while I see Explorer has rock wall and Flow Rider, they don't seem to have a waterslide
  2. My daughter is crew on EX, got this text from her this am... Our dry dock was canceled as of last night. We will port in miami on the 15th - the 18th (in and out not over night) and for the remaining time we were supposed to be in france we will be floating around Freeport. Docking when it's free. Ship is hoping everything changes by may and we will sail to europe for cruises without enhancements
  3. We are contemplating options when our cruise is canceled soon. One of the options is a Southern cruise on Explorer OTS. From what I can tell, it has a lot of what the Oasis class ships has, but definitely quite a bit I can't find out so far. We will have the beverage package. Here are my questions: 1. Do they have a place you can grab a bottle of water and/or Gatorade to put in the room fridge? 2. My daughter loved that she could get smoothies at Vitality Cafe on HOTS. Do they have something similar? Or, can she get mocktails at the bars?
  4. Looking at a stateroom on Deck 6 of Explorer, but don't want to be right above the smoking section. Which side of the Promenade Deck is smoking allowed, Port or Starboard? 🍷
  5. Does anyone know if there is a Boleros lounge on the Explorer of the Seas. I can't seem to find it on the deck plans for that ship. Thank you for any help
  6. On the the open decks, which side of the Explorer of the Seas can you smoke?
  7. Hi - we have a group of 3 couples booked on a Feb 2021 cruise on Explorer. We have been told that the balconies can be opened to become one "long' balcony. Looking for confirmation that they can, indeed, be opened - OR if you know they cannot. Cabins are on deck 10 aft, but not the very back of the ship.
  8. Hello! Does anyone know if the EOS has had an upgrade?
  9. Does anyone have any information about the redo of Explorer? I know it was put off from this May and we have a cruise scheduled for 2/12/21. If not do we have an option to switch our cruise to another ship?
  10. Hi Cruisers! Received this in an email from Royal Caribbean today: "We invite you to share a scenic sunset in Alaska this e‌v‌e‌n‌i‌ng — from the comfort of your home. Virtually transport yourself to the aft of Explorer of the Seas® and watch with us as the ‌s‌u‌n‌ dips below the mountaintops of The Last Frontier. Just visit the Royal Caribbean® Facebook page at ‌7‌:‌4‌5‌ ‌p‌.‌m‌. E‌S‌T ‌t‌o‌n‌i‌g‌ht." Don't miss it! ** May 22 Note: This video became available on May 20 and remains on the Facebook page to view whenever you'd like.
  11. We're booked on the May 27 sailing on Explorer out of Rome. Somebody on our roll call just posted this from her daughter who is crew on the Explorer. Not sure what the plan is for our sailing however, we won't be on an Amped up ship if it does sail.
  12. Has anyone heard when they are going to refurbish the Explorer?? Thank you.
  13. We are booked on the Aug 30th sailing and hoping things are better by then. We are sailing with a 9 month old. We were told the ship is getting the Royal Tots nursery that will have babysitting if my wife and I decide to have a dinner by ourselves. The Drydock was cancelled and so the nursery seems to be on hold. I called RCL and they told me they will have alternate plans for the babysitting for the infants. Hopefully they will still have it for a few hours. If anyone has information about this I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks
  14. Since I enjoy hearing what people have to say about their cruises, I thought I would give some quick feedback on our recent one. DH and I were on the Feb. 7 9 night sailing of the Explorer of the Seas and had a wonderful time. We were a little concerned after some recent reviews, but we were pleasantly pleased with how the cruise went. The ship is still in great shape getting ready to go into dry dock. The service was terrific and we both agreed that the food was very good. Main dining room was great the first night. We went there a few other times, but found we preferred the
  15. Anyone who has recently been on the Explorer of the Seas, this question is for you. What is currently on Deck 11 forward of the solarium?
  16. Can the balcony partitions be opened on the Explorer?
  17. I know this is really far out but I’ve seen an ABC itinerary for Explorer leaving March 12, 2021 on a few different sites but it’s no where on Royal Caribbean’s site. Any ideas why? There are cruises before and after that date, it’s like that period is blocked out for EOTS. Possible charter pending? 🤔
  18. They were on the 80’s cruise charter that sailed from March 8th-15th.
  19. Does anyone know if the forward facing cabins on Explorer - 9502,9504, 9202,9204 are the same size? (I know the central ones are bigger because they are family cabins.) I am wondering if you lose square footage if you take the cabins on the end.
  20. Looking to book a Southern Caribbean for 2021. The two cruises that come up that meet what we are looking for is the NCL Breakaway and RCCL Explorer on the seas. They both sail out of Miami and do all but one port the same. Looking for personal opinion on which you would pick and why! We have sailed both cruise lines. We feel they both have goods and bads. But can not decide. Any help in selling one or the other would be appreciated. Quote Edit
  21. 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
  22. Grettings RC CC's, Here's a video we made that you might find entertaining. DW and I have racked up 18 cruises in the last 10 years including getting engaged on Carnival Glory and married on Celebrity Summit. We've been making cruises video recently and stumbled on footage from our very first cruise on Explorer of the Seas in 2010 that started it all. Here's the link below to the RCL video as well as our Viking, Oceania, Norwegian videos with more on the way. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0JSZXzoNOA Please do subscribe if you like it! Enjoy!
  23. On Explorer now - currently day 8 of a 9 Day cruise. My fifth cruise with RC. This a not a full review, Just a couple of observations that have stuck out to us this time: 1. Service is exceptional. The crew in the dining room is our favorite so far, and everyone goes out of their way to please you. 2. Drink card was offered starting on day 4! That’s is the first time we’ve seen it offered so early. It was posted on the first page the the compass the night before (night 3). 3. The cruise compass has significantly shrunk. It is only 4 pages compared to the novels we used to
  24. We booked this cruise in November and every once in awhile I take a look to check rates, available cabins, etc. The other day I noticed that all balconies on this cruise are sold out, and most ocean view cabins are sold. Most inside cabins also seem to be booked. And looks like half or more of the suites are booked. This seems very odd to me, this far out. I am on the RCCL Meet & Mingle thread for the cruise, and there are several individuals/small groups booked. So I'm wondering what the reason could be that the ship is so booked up this far out. Is it -- -- a RCCL theme
  25. 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
