 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.

  • 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 more

    My experience with RC was excellent. It was my first real vacation, and I was rather nervous from the beginning. I never left home without my mother so I was filled with angst and more

  • Summer Mallory 25 10 Western Caribbean

    Embarkation was a piece of cake. We got there around 10:30, hardly no line at all. We had pier pick up for the documents and that was very easy. They told us we would be getting on at 11:00. more

    A group of eight couples - six from Western Wisconsin, one from St. Louis and one all the way from Houston - all decided that it was time that we ventured forth on a cruise. For the most part, more

  • Joe and Ila Lemon 67 First Cruise Eastern Caribbean

    Because of 9/11 we did not want to fight the hassle of the new security procedures, and airline travel, so we drove to Miami. We stayed overnight in Ft. Lauderdale, and drove on to the Port more

  • Nancy Lien 51 5 Nassau, St. Thomas, San Juan, Labadee

    This was the biggest and newest ship I've been on, I thought the design was very clever because I sure didn't feel like I was on that big of ship as the main public areas are in more
