Just Returned Explorer Of The Seas 12/5-12

Recommended Posts

Will make this short and sweet!!


All I can say is WOW!!!


Had the best cruise on this massive ship. The weather could not have been any better and the fellow passengers were great. We were in the Chamber night club till 4am every night.


I stayed in 1688 and liked the cabin. I have to say it is quite a walk from the elevators. Great balcony and there was plenty of room for myself and my two buddies.


I will be honest and say the food was just OK. I didnt starve, thats for sure but I wasn't bowled over by the food. Our wait staff were excellent and worked very hard. I did find Jonny Rockets to be very good. I ate at Portofinos and enjoyed the food there and enjoyed the company of my friends and new friends we had met.


The ship was in great condition and constantly being maintained.



I will be happy to answer any questions if anyone has one.

Our experience was pretty similar to yours. Great ship, great staff, food only so-so but I didn't turn it away either. The only difference is personally, we didn't find JR's to be all that. Loved the onion rings but that's about as far as it goes. Otherwise it was just a burger and fries. We much prefered the sandwiches and pizza at Cafe Promanade. I probably ate three or four of them each day.

Good to know that the ship and everything else is all that you could want. We are sailing in Feb. and sounds like it will be terrific. :)
