Explorer of the Seas departed Southampton, England today and will sail for 42 days through Europe and via Dubai, India and Asia before arriving in Perth, Australia on November 13.
Once Explorer of the Seas arrives in Perth, she will offer a 16-night itinerary around the southern half of Australia and New Zealand, before arriving at her new homeport of Sydney on November 28.
On that same day, sister ship Voyager of the Seas will be in Sydney harbor as well and both ships will be present to meet for what is sure to be a great photo opportunity.
Explorer of the Seas arrives in Australia just months after receiving a multimillion dolar makeover back in April. She features a number of new additions and improvements including
- FlowRider surf simulator
- New restaurants
- Chops Grille
- Giovanni's Table
- two new bars
- Virtual balcony staterooms
- Panoramic staterooms
- Complete refresh of all public spaces and staterooms
