We went on Explorer last June and the ship was great. My kids are a little younger (12 &9) and with all previous cruises including Explorer they luved their cruise kid clubs. There is plenty to do for them....don't be surprised when your kids want to go their clubs instead of hanging with the parents...lol. Have fun. Remember as parents do not miss the Love & Marriage Game Show or the QUEST Game Show. Must do's. Have fun and duck when going under the bridge!
