We will be cruising on Explorer of the Seas in November. We have never been on a larger ship, and are looking forward to the experience. Is there anything special we should do or look forward to? Thanks!!
There is everything to look forward to! I am going in November as well on the same ship and see that it has an ice rink (shows are not to be missed I hear), the main prominade that has all the shops and some bars. The pools, the itinerary, the food, etc., etc., You should check out the RCCL website for photos, shipboard activities.
i just got off of explorer last weekend and it was still amazing. there is so much to do on the cruise ships. i would defnitley not miss the ice shows, they are absolutely amazing and also the production shows are great and a lot of hard work is put into the shows by the staff. they also have open ice skating times where you can skate in the ice rink. i would also not miss the love and marriage game show, if you like comedy it's really funny. johnny rockets is onboard it the food is great but there is a 3.95 cover charge. if you have the second seating i can recommend a waiter if you would like. also there is a adult scavenger hunt(i can't think of what they call it right now) but it is a lot of fun. no matter what you do you will have a blast!
Take a highlighter with and when the cruise compass comes to your room start marking what you want to do. I do this so I don't miss anything and my husband just brings a book and sleeps a lot. We're so compatible!

I was on the Explorer in April. The Quest, the ice show, the stage shows are fantastic. Also, you have to try their coconut ranger cookies....to die for. I became addicted to them and would have smuggled a boat load of them when I left the ship if I could have.
