My friends & I, a group that amounted to over 200, had a wonderful time on the Explorer. The crew was very helpful, hospitable, and skillful at their assigned tasks.
I would especially like to ask that if anyone knows how to contact a crew member, via email or otherwise, to let me know by sending a message to my email here listed. It would be greatly appeciated so that a message of importance may be sent to them.
We found the ship to be very well designed to keep one happily busy with activities ranging from onboard tours of the science lab to theater shows/comedians. And, as I mentioned, the crew knows how to treat you like royality and does so with sincerity. A huge thank you to our great waiters, Ercan (pronounced Er-john) and Xavier, from Turkey & India respectively. Then also our stateroom attendant, Ophelia from Jamaica. Each of them did their part very well to make it a voyage of happy memories.
Our ports of call did not satisfy us, however. We found the sellers in the shops to be too pushy and greedy with high prices. Grand Cayman was the only one we all seemed to like best. I especially liked visiting the Turtle Farm there.
All in all, I truly recommend the Explorer for a fabulos experience at sea. It made going home quite the disappointment as a vacation should.
