Default Explorer of the Seas Review is posted

My review of our cruise from 11 June to 20 June 2009 is now posted under Royal Caribbean/Explorer of the Seas.

Verbosity being my strong suit it is long and fairly detailed. I like such reviews but many don't so I warn you now.

Also, it is most obvious one can't proof read their own stuff! At any rate, "It is what it is."

Todd

Very enjoyable review Todd, thanks for taking the time to share it with us.

Todd..I was hoping for alittle more detail in your review

your writing style reflects that your English teachers in school did an outstanding job and that you paid close attention...well done

I love Bermuda also

looking forward to your review on the Oasis

Todd,

Excellent review with a good amount of detail. I enjoyed it a lot.

Just one thing I'd like to point out (the nitpicker in me, of course); Bermuda is not in the Carribean. I would say it's the Atlantic, since it's pretty much the same latitude as the Carolinas. Again, no big deal.

You mention that you done the same itinerary for the past 3 cruises. We pretty much have done the same on all but one of ours (Western in 2000), and I never tire of the islands we hit. We like some more than others; St. Maartin probably most of all. Still we never tire of seeing them.

So, next one booked yet?

Sid,

You are absolutely correct. The reason I worded it the way I did was that many people don't realize that Bermuda is actually in the North Atlantic as opposed to the Caribbean and the cruise lines also lump it under Eastern Caribbean. Actually, I believe it's probably in the Sargasso Sea.

Todd,

There have been times I have "been at sea" and not on a cruise ship to boot !

We have not yet been to Bermuda, although our daughter and her husband have, as has my sister and her husband.

When you were on the pool deck, did you sit by the main pool, or in the spa area? When we were on AOS last year, we found us a spot in the spa area, and like you said, wnet there everytiome we sat by the pool. I agree that as we age we tend to gravitate to the same things.

Where did you get your morning coffee? I went (we bring our own Dunkin' Donuts travel mugs) to that littel pizza/coffee shop on the Promenade. Around 0600 or so...we are early risers no matter where we are. Nothing like a cup of Joe and watching the world come awake at sea.

Sid,

A Navy vet I presume.

In response to the second part of your first question, no we haven't booked our next cruise.

I probably should be ashamed to admit this, but I personally only went out on the pool deck for maybe five minutes throughout the cruise. I don't lay in the sun and I don't like salt water pools so............ Of course everyone else in our party did and Fran (my wife) paid for it dearly.

I used to tell folks that when we lived in Florida for a year and a half when I was a kid, you could always tell a Floridian native. They were the folks without the tans.

Todd
