Great cruise, unique ship, wonderful weather. I have done a long review which can be found at
for those that wish to read it. NOTE, I use lot's of photo's and don't overly compress them so that those that like to use them as wallpaper or print them can do so without to much loss of resolution. Therefore it will take a few minutes to load for many unless you have DSL. Hopefully the photo's etc will be worth the additional minutes.
My review is mostly positive but I have to admit that my personal taste leans ore to smaller ships. This one is just too big for me. More like Disney Land than a ship, I prefer something just a tad more intimate. I'm glad I sailed her, loved the cruise, just don't think I would rebook this class ship.
Cruise travel magazine just came in mail, featuring of course, Explorer of The Seas. Pretty much a standard PR piece but I didn't realize they plan to have FIVE of these ships. I also hadn't realized why they had placed statues by entrance doors in the Solarium pool. It is/was supposed to be another place to eat that they must have decided not to staff it.
