Default Aft cabins/Explorer of the Seas

Hi,

Have category/cabin D8/6688 reserved on Explorer of the Seas. It is an aft cabin. Does anyone have any experience with aft cabins on Explorer of the Seas. My aft on Millennium was wonderful - the balcony was larger.

My other choice is DB 7260 - midship.

Any opinions?

Theresa

I looked at cabin 6688, category DB, when I was on the Explorer on 10/20. My co-worker had reserved it. I did not like this cabin, as the balcony does not go all the way to the railing, there is a free space of about 10 ft. (crew area) between verandah and railing aft. If you look at the deck plan, you will know what I mean.Go with the midship cabin.
Happy Cruising, Ginnie

Hi Theresa,
I didn't get to stay in one, but I did get a chance to see one of the family suites on Explorer and all I can say is they look wonderful, the balconies are huge, I'd keep the aft cabins you have and have a ball!

We sailed in Sept on the EOS,cabin 7296, mid ship. Believe me, the cabin and balcony are excellent,but I would choose mid ship again due to the size of the ship. From aft cabins, its quite some distance to the theatres, spa, etc.
Have a great time,

Chelle

ps If you like rum, don't miss the Bacardi tour in San Juan

Theresa does not have a family suite aft reserved. Cabin 6688, the one she has booked, is a Category DB cabin with a balcony on deck 6. It can not be confused with a family suite.
Happy Cruising, Ginnie

Someone from the board sent me a picture of her cabin which is a deck up and opposite corner (Room 7388 - Same category from what I can tell and it looks like same size balcony cabin on brochure).

I will be in 6688.

I think it looks like a nice balcony!

Default You're welcome...

Actually, the credit should go to someone from the CruiseCritic board for the photo, but he didn't identify himself. Also, "Blackie50" from the same board was also very helpful in his verbal description of this cabin. It was so cool getting a picture and a description before we even get there! I can't believe how much information I've gotten on the cruise forums. Everyone is so helpful. I'm glad to share the information.

We have had aft cabins on the last 3 cruises and an upcoming one on the Grandeur. Two of them were on Voyager and Explorer. The balconies are wonderful and are certainly larger. We had the Royal Family Suite and friends had one like yours and then another had a Cat C. We all love having the larger balconies.

Have a great time... Denise :-)

Theresa,
We had the next to the last balcony room in the aft of the ship on deck 10, and we loved it! The only thing it's a long walk when you're stuffed to the gills. No need to hit the exercise room when your room is where ours was, ha! ha! I know you're going to love it. We are scheduled to sail the Explorer March 2nd. I can hardly wait to see her again.
Happy sailing,
Mary Martin
