Bon voyage Mark! I'll be following along.

My daughter is recently off Explorers 9 night (I keep going through her pictures of Explorer!), so I'll be interested in what you have to say about the ship in comparison! We'll be on Celebrity Summit the end of May, also to Bermuda (yup, we keep going back). Is the new "Fun Golf" On your to-do list? I am also looking for a private tour guide/ van, if you see any vans with contact info on them, can you click a picture for me!?!?
Have fun overnighting here in the garden state! lol And wave as you pass by!

Bon Voyage!

Looking forward to your review, Radio. We love Explorer - were on her last fall to Bermuda and had a great cruise. Going on May 16 for a 9-nighter with Bermuda included and then again to New England in August. We have never gone "Live" with you and will love to "cruise" with you this week.

Have fun Radio! If you remember, look out for a head waiter named Jacob...I believe he is on Explorer right now. One of the best. He's a friend from our many sailings back on Majesty of the Seas. He's from Israel

Have a great cruise!
WOW...Jacob was our head waiter on our very first cruise, which was on the Majesty of the Seas. He is our favorite head waiter to date. It has been 13 years since we first started cruising and he definately was the best. I will be on the Explorer this summer and I really hope that he is my head waiter.

Radio....enjoy your cruise. I really love your "LIVE" reports.

I hope I get to meet you, as I have often followed your reports. I'll even be looking to see if I can add my 2 cents worth.
Let's hope for smooth sailing, and great weather in Bermuda!
