Dave's Trip Report

Ship: 
Explorer of the Seas
Duration: 
9 night Bermuda/Caribbean
Cabin: 
aft facing junior suite
A great time was had by all Bermuda, Saint Maartin, and Haiti were all great not very impressed with San Juan. food was great service was great. Captain Henrik was excellent he was more involved with the passengers then on any other cruise we have been on. This was our second trip on the Explorer and we learned that it is going in to dry dock for a major overhaul in late 2014 and although it is very nice it is showing the ware and tear. The crew told us the the RUMOR is the the new sunshine class ship will be taking it's place. i hope that is true but no one can confirm it. COME ON ROYAL CARIBBEAN I THINK WE HERE IN THE NORTH EAST DESERVE IT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
