  1. Pictures from Explorer of the Seas from May 2019👍👌
  2. We are trying to choose two cabins close together on deck 8 of the Explorer. Can anybody tell me what this area is? Just a open area? Odd to see inside cabins with their own hallway. Cabin 8226 would just to a large open space?? I don’t think I would like that. we have the highlighted cabins to choose from as well as an inside. Just trying to pick the best one. thnaks.
  3. We're anticipating a Southern Caribbean cruise on the Explorer of the Seas this winter. What shape is the ship in? When was it last refurbished? Does it have a Flowrider? Fresh water pools? How was the dining/food? Thanks.
  4. Been a while since we sailed with RCL but seem to remember that if sailing from UK there is a kettle in the cabin Wondering if this is still the case. Thanks
  5. First time on Royal Caribbean. Frequent cruisers on NCL and Carnival. We will be doing a 14 day cruise in June. Wondering about dress code in the dining room. We have a 6pm dinner time. Are nice shorts and sandals ok? We are trying to pack as light as possible. Formal nights. I believe there are three of them. Can we dress casual in the specialty restaurants? I don’t want to bring formal clothes for three nights but don’t really like the buffet so looking for other options. I have no problem paying extra for the specialty dining on those nights. Thank you.
  6. Hi Everyone, I am due to travel onboard Explorer next Tuesday and I was recently on Indy and they did a silent disco, I am wondering if they do it on Explorer as it was a lot of fun. Many thanks, Nathan
  7. Going on Explorer of the seas soon, and I have to say the recent reviews are not exaclty glowing a real mixed bag. So my question is this, do Royal Caribbean read these reviews and act on them ? I'm wondering if the crew have been on a long while and are tired and due a break, how often do they rotate crews, from the captain down? It worries me with the amount i'm paying and the reviews saying "it's all a bit of an understaffed effort"
  8. Hi all...we are booked on the 5-night out of Miami on March 15th. We have a bunch of family going as well, and everyone has booked separately, save for my parents. Now, Explorer has completely disappeared from the March/April calendar. I know the drydock was scheduled for March 21-April 20th (I think), but I'm wondering if they pushed it up? My SIL called to change her family from two balcony cabins to a panoramic oceanview suite, and they said it was sold out and that the ship is going into drydock and that they will have to get back to her with some options. I called twice, and got two different answers, but both basically stating that it's not cancelled. However, it's "sold out", and I cannot switch to a suite, but may be able to in a couple days. Weird. I suspect they are planning to cancel? Just the other day, my in-laws booked and there was wide open availability for all cabins. Just seems weird, and I can't get a straight answer, and now the rest of our family cannot book!
  9. We have only sailed RCL once before in 2016 on the Navigator OTS, we enjoyed it immensely, the only let down was the TV programming. There was a limited selection that played over and over, not a huge deal but on a 12N cruise you eventually saw everything (at least two of three times). Has RCL upgraded their TV programming to be more of an on demand affair much like the newer offerings from Celebrity or HAL? Either way we'll still enjoy our 14N on Explorer this fall. Thanks for any replies.
  10. We've just booked our first every cruise in July, family of 4, my daughters are 19 and 16. We've got a few questions, and would appreciate some guidance please? 1. What time is the evening entertainment on, trying to decide whether to eat at 6 or 830pm 2. The premium drinks package seems very expensive as 3 of us are over 18, does the 10 drink package card get sold on our cruise usually? 3. Tips on "must see" trips? 4. Is there a buffet option for food or alternative if we choose to not have full dinner slot. 5. Anything else you recommend we book in advance eg a la carte (not sure this is worth paying more for though! Our itinerary is : Southampton, England Gibraltar Cartagena, Spain Barcelona, Spain Barcelona, Spain Palma De Mallorca, Spain Valencia, Spain Málaga, Spain Seville (Cádiz), Spain Lisbon, Portugal Southampton, England
  11. We're trying to figure out what's next for us - deciding between the Serenade or Explorer to the Caribbean. Do either of these have a Suite Lounge with a view? I've looked at the ship layouts and it appears that these 2 only have Concierge lounges in the middle of the ship with no view. Can anyone confirm one way or the other? Thanks for your help!!
  12. Hi all can anybody tell me what plugs I need for explorer.i am from the uk so assuming I need an adaptor thank you sylvia
  13. Would love to hear opinions on this ship. We normally don’t like sea days and we will have four on our 14 day cruise. We usually do interior or ocean view rooms. Thinking about upgrading.... Upgrade to a balcony worth the money? Thank you.
  14. Has anyone heard when they are going to refurbish the Explorer?? Thank you.
  15. Does anyone have any pictures of GS 1252 or 1552 on the Explorer. If no pics how about someone who has stayed in either one of these. 1) I am trying to see what the Pullman beds would look like in either of those cabins. 2) i am also trying to find out if you had sun during the day or if it is blocked by anything above. Thanks!!
  16. Can someone tell me if the balcony dividers open on deck 12. These rooms were added on in drydock.
  17. I just booked the Dec 8 2019 sailing of the Explorer of the Seas the other day. I stumbled across this link today and it looks like it might be chartered for the Fuccilli Auto people? I posted on the roll call but there is only 1 person on it so far. I just googled it and it looks like this company does full ship charters every year at this time. Does anyone who might have been bumped previously remember approximately when you were notified? https://www.cruisewithhuge.com/itinerary Thanks! Jess
  18. Looking to book the Explorer for Jan 5th 2020 as our Independence cruise of Jan 6th got chartered. The balcony size is important for me as I am often on the balcony unlike my husband. At this time, I see 2 potential cabins : 9310 and 8318 Is one bigger than the other ? or will they be the same? Thanks
  19. Has anyone gone on a Mediterranean cruise on this ship or is anyone going this year?
  20. Been looking at some details on the 2020 amplification of Explorer of the Seas and also checked out some great YouTube videos of Navigator’s changes. As they are both in the same class of ships it got me wondering if they will both be refitted the same. Does anyone know please?
  21. Anyone know what times the shoes will be on explorer?
  22. Was just browsing through some Summer 2020 cruises and Explorer's itineraries out of Civitavecchia seem interesting. I noticed that there is a June 28th cruise and a July 12th cruise, however, there is no July 5th sailing. I can't imagine a cruise during the middle of Summer being chartered. Does anyone know if a July 5th sailing exists or if something else is happening?
  23. We're booked on the above cruise - I was just checking live prices and get a "You cannot select this cruise at this time" error - the cruise is also not available on the US website. Could this mean that there could be changes about to come? All other itineraries work fine! Cheers Simon
  24. Wife and I taking two of our grandkids on explorer next year which they’re looking forward to. They’ve never been on a cruise before. They keep asking me (they are 8 and 6) about what amenities and entertainment there is on board. I must confess that whilst the wife and I are diamond plus and cruise a fair bit I don’t don’t have a clue what the offers are on board. Never really paid any attention to what’s on cruise compass daily or what stuff they can do. Any advice would be really helpful.
  25. The deluxe drinks package is the cheapest I have seen it sailing out of the uk coming in at £41.04 per day
