Does Anne respond to questions? I posted one regarding the Royal Fam. Suite below. She mentioned the this cabin has a whirlpool tub on the balcony. I would like to know if she actually "saw" it. The Voyager claimed to have the same on its RFS balcony, however, it didn't. We did love the cabin anyway and are booked in the same one aboard Explorer for next April. If possible I would like a confirmation. Thank you. Denise
From what I understand Anne will be leaving on a cruise this week-end and is probibaly getting ready. I know she was on Explorer recently while the ship was in New York, so she may know the answer about the tub. You may just want to write her an e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org I'm sure she'll get back to you as soon as she can.
When in April are you going on Explorer? We're going on April 21st. Seems like a long wait, but hope it goes by fast :-)
You can see a photo of the Royal Suite whirlpool tub, on the balcony of Explorer, at http:/www.cruiseoutlets.com/roysuite4.jpg. Other Royal Suite photos can be seen via at http://www.cruiseoutlets.com
DeAnn and I will be on Explorer for a week beginning next Saturday (it's third sailing). We booked this cruise while on Voyager last November (2nd sailing). Have waited a year so, I guess we can wait one more week.........it's tough though.
Hey Donna, we're going on the 21st also!! There are 13 of us so far (family and friends). Have you sailed the Voyager? If so, you know what to expect. If not, wow...you're in for such a treat. We had a super time. No complaints, except for the whirlpool tub fiasco.
Thanks for the e-mail address for Anne. I appreciate it.
Keep in touch...maybe we can arrange to hook up on the ship. Denise..:-)
Wow, can't believe we're going at the same time :-) NO, haven't been on Voyager, much prefer the itinary to Explorer. Yes, lets keep in touch, so far its just me and my husband going on this one, can't wait. If you get a chance post in the "meet on board" here at Cruisemates. So far I'm the only one going 4-21-01.
Hi Donna...I just posted on "meet on board". Congrats. on your daughters upcoming nuptuals! You will definitely need a vacation after that. Looking forward to keeping in touch and meeting you on board. We range in age from myself and husband (late 30's), our son (9), my husbands parents and other choice family (50-60 range) and our friends (40's). Quite a diverse bunch of characters.
So glad to finally find cruisers on Explorer with us. Husband and I are mid 40's and love to cruise, but this one is simply for R and R, but have a feeling we'll have a great time on this new ship. Gosh, you're got a great bunch cruising with you, best way to go. Look forward to talking before we go, take care.
just returned from EOS 11/04 sailing,had room 1390 aft directly over a royal family suite. If they had a whirlpool on their balcony it was invisible. Their balcony was completely in full view from my balcony
well glad you asked. It was great. I kept all the compasses so i could help answer any questions. I even kept a few notes while on board in case i write a review later. The short version is the ship is magnificent. I was impressed with the Grand Princess but this ship out does that. It was like a floating hotel and i really love that promenade it was a great place to seat relax with a cup of coffee and just people watch. I must say the food in the dining although good was not great. They had some very good dishes but in general i'd give the food a B. I would however recommend this ship to everyone. I am already checking into the Adventure for next nov. a ship as beautiful as EOS and one with great ports what more could you ask for.
Thanks! I have gotten in touch w/ Anne since my original post and she advised that she saw in the "brochure" that there "was" a hottub. (She was mislead just as we were) She didn't actually see it. Oh well... Even though it was misadvertised, we still have it booked for April. We loved it on the Voyager. There were 5 of us with plenty of room left over.
Glad you enjoyed the Explorer. Can't wait to see her. Denise :-)
Not to disagree, however we had 1390 & 1392 and i don't believe anyone from the island grill could see you unless you were all the way next to the railng. At least that is the way it was on these two rooms.
