All Things Explorer of the Seas! -- Part 2

Recommended Posts

Hi there, has the explorer already been in dry dock or any news when dry dock would happen?

 

Anyone with some fantastic explorer view links / albums to share? Thanks!

 

Dry dock has been completed since end of April. There are a couple of reviews/comments and photos on some threads if you do a search.

 

Here is one http://boards.cruisecritic.co.uk/showthread.php?t=2212877#

Does anybody have experiences with the new inside cabins on deck 3? (Voyager, Navigator or Explorer)

 

We are booked on #3019 on our November cruise. I'm a bit worried about being close to the public places (noise?).

Are wine packages still available, I've looked in the beverage section but still no sign.

Wine packages have been discontinued. However, check onboard because they may offer a package on the ship.

Any recent updates? I see the last post was nearly a year ago! I'll be on one of the Alaskan cruises on the EOS in mid-July and am looking forward to it. Currently researching paid-dining options as well as fishing excursions in Juneau (either local walking guided or fly out if I'm feeling spendy)

Explorer has been through a dry dock. Added staterooms, Flowrider, Chops Izumi, pool big screen.

Just a quick question: is the Screening Room still there or was it removed during dry dock? I only ask because it doesn't appear on the deck plans.

 

TIA

2 days away from my next cruise on my favorite ship. Anyone have recent menus for the Alaska cruises?

We are looking forward to Explorer coming to Australia for her second Summer visit as we are booked on the Christmas and New Year's sailing to Fiji and the South Pacific. I have just noticed that we have been moved from the aft cabin I originally booked (9692) to a hump cabin (8318). I chose the aft cabin as there are 6 sea days on this sailing and the aft cabins have such big balconies including lounger chairs. I have seen photos of the hump balcony and it looks pretty small in comparison, although the views should be amazing. I am not sure if there is anything I can do about it but hoping that someone who has stayed in a similar room can let me know if the balcony is really not that small on the hump?

Had you booked and paid for you cabin? I have absolutely no idea if having paid for your holiday in full would actually make any difference with Royal Caribbean but you'd think it would be locked in?

We have an Aft cabin booked (and paid for) for the 3rd of January 2017 cruise, hope we don't get bumped, though I think our cabin type is only in the aft...

Hopefully someone will be along with a more helpful reply...sorry x

Yes, booked and paid a long time ago. But searching these boards I see this happens all the time! My original room was next to a royal family sweet and all I can think is that someone booked that and wanted the room next door so they 'upgraded' us.

I will. They responded to my email and said that I made the change myself! Of course I have written back asking for details - I would not have changed my room, unless there is some way of accidentally upgrading yourself?? Anyway, will see what they come back with. My husband is not worried, he says we are not on our balcony much anyway, but I was looking forward to all the space in that balcony.

Fight for that Aft cabin, we had that same cabin on a Transatlantic, it was the

best cabin we have ever had!! Balcony is huge and it very quiet back there!
