 Explorer of the Seas

Marginally larger than her sister ships and thus the largest passenger liner ever built until the QM2 and the new Freedom class Royal Caribbean ships, this 137,308 gt giant is truly a floating city. Rock climbing, ice skating, minigolf and inline skating; all this - and much more - is featured aboard this spectacular megaliner. Explorer of the Seas now sails to the Eastern and Western Caribbean from Miami, year-round.

    Day 1: This was a Saturday to Saturday cruise, so Day 1 was Saturday. The checkout process was not the best. However, given there were something like 3300 passengers, it wasn't so...read more

  • John Le 30 3 Western Caribbean

    The ship was so elegant and large. It is truly a floating city. Aside from the size, the ship was very classy as opposed to Elation's gaudy look. The nightly shows were very good. My only...read more
