Team K's 14 night Holiday on Explorer Review!


Recommended Posts

Thank you for making my day. It was so nice reading and seeing your cruise pics. I was on Exlorerer years ago; so it was nice following your cruise thru the new year.

 

Cheers,

Thanks so much for posting such a detailed report! :D We are sailing 9 nights in August- and you have me wishing we were stopping in Dominica! It looked amazing, and so different. Thanks especially for all the food porn- really glad you were usually happy with your meals. Can't wait to read and see the rest!:)

Get to Dominica some time, you wont be disappointed! We really had a fabulous time. I'll have to post more pictures from Dominica.

Although the Promenade is where most congregate for the New Years Eve Countdown, ,,,OOPS! Not a picture of the promenade, sorry!

we opted to bring it in with our good friends, Issac and Maddie up at the 19th Hole, alongside Dizzy’s Lounge. We were so surprised there was only one other table when we arrived.

We ordered drinks, then my husband went to our cabin to get our speaker and iPod for music. We created our own Happy New Year, it was AMAZING!

We had the entire area to ourselves, we had our own music, our own bar tender, we had him change the channel of the televisions (was a tough feat because it is considered a sports bar and he is only allowed to play sports on those tv’s). We were able to walk right outside and be under the stars and make some after midnight phone calls…Truly a wonderful New Years Eve!

 

Promenade .....

Dinner was very good. We had so much fun! I forgot what we ate! Will post pictures of the menu & dinner in another post!

 

I love your review!!!! I was just wondering what that wall thing was above the Royal Promenade sighn?:confused:

Now I am even more pi--ed off that they didn't really publicize the New Year's brunch. Great decorations. We were sitting in the nearly empty Jammie with the same old same old wondering where everybody was, figuring the whole ship was hung over.:D

 

Boo hiss.

Loved your review...and loved seeing Damion serving in the MDR, when we sailed in October in was serving in the Aquarium Bar, and made me a rose also! Must be he got promoted.

 

Also, I noticed alot of new menu choices, do you know if they will be using some of these menus for future cruises, it would be nice to see a change, as we have had the same menu, over the course of the last few years...We will be back on EOS in May and then October 2011.

Something for the New years countdown? There was one halfway displaying the countdown all day and I didnt pay attention to the other one. I know I have a picture of it somewhere. It was decorated on the other side. when I come across it, I will post it!

 

Glad you enjoyed reading the review!!!

the Deck BBQ wasnt in the cruise compass either. Too bad it was on a day we were in port! We love them! You didnt miss too much at the brunch.

Damian is so nice! I have no idea about the menus- if they will be using them in the future. It was nice to see some new choices!!

Not the food so much as the decorations and atmosphere of the place.

 

Celebrity has a great brunch in the MDR early in a 7 day trip.

LOL, Stacey....We were right next door to you in Dizzy's on New Year's Eve doing the same thing.....getting away from that mob! We were also alone. Several of the CC roll call group were there and we partied until about 2 AM! Great fun!

Stacey, thanks for posting the awesome review and photos! It looks like you and your family had a great time. I am jealous, I would love to have spent 14 nights on the Explorer with all of you, I am just getting caught up on yor review and have enjoyed every second of it. Keep the photos coming! :cool: I am positive the Quest was a blast as usual. Jimmy Rhodes does a nice job. Sorry to hear about the old belt.

 

It is very cool that you ran into Isaac and Maddie too. You all seemed to have a lot of fun, judging from the photos. :)

 

Hey, Isaac, if you see this, I'll save you and Maddie a seat in the Cigar lounge in June. You need a cruise to decompress after medical school again this coming semester. Same time and same place for the cruise as last year...hint :D.

 

Hey, I am also jealous of the person in the red shirt in front of the Sky Bar, they are in my lounge chair!

Thanks for the info on the jeep rental. We may have to do that this coming June.

Sapphire beach looks like a great location too! We'll have to try that, since we have never been there.

Looking forward to more of your review!
