Default Theater Curtain on Explorer

The theater on the Explorer of the Seas is called the Taj Mahal. The grand curtain has an unusual design. I was wondering if anybody knows if there is any meaning behind the design or is it just lovely and fits the Indian theme.

If I remember correctly, there are 28 women (goddesses?) in flowing gowns that are barefoot and holding their hands out, palms up as though catching raindrops or giving praise. I thought possibly they were Hindu or mythological goddesses.

Actually it's in the Palace Theatre. The curtain is so beautiful that we took pictures of it. I don't know the story behind it but it's an amazing piece of artwork. Let me know if you would like me to email you a picture of it.

We were just on the Explorer, I know there is only one other ship with a curtain like it. The other ship only has I think they said 9 women on it. They had a behind the schenes tour and ask the crew one day and someone asked about it. It is unique to the Explorer. Not sure of a story behind it, but if you go on it make sure to ask.

Thank you for your answers. This was something that I had been wondering about for over a year.

We are now looking forward to experiencing a Radiance Class Ship.

Wow... I am jealous... I have been on the Radiance 3 times... what a beautiful ship... I love it... I think it is probably the most beautiful in the fleet...

Enjoy your cruise........ enjoy the ship... ohhhhh I forgot ... I just love the smell as you walk into the one lounge, I think it was the Schooner... but you will know it when you walk in... the smell is very aromatic... like Hicory chips.. mmmmmm smelled so nice!!

Dear Ken:

We were on the Explorer (Feb 2004) and left it in fine shape for you.

Things we loved about the Explorer:

*the Royal Promenade. We spent so much time there that we didn't tan much that cruise!
*the Cruz Comics (sp?) that warmed up the audience before each show.
*the sheer size of the ship -- especially how wide it is! We hardly felt any movement.
*the helipad. There are benches to sit on and you can just watch the water or horizon or the stars depending on when you venture up there. You can be "King of the World!" on this ship -- amazing!
*3-level dining room!!!!!
*Gordon Watman -- my kids favorite cruise director
*the Explorer of the Seas Orchestra -- top notch
*Planet Ice -- ice skating show. My son went skating one afternoon, too.
*the 3-piece jazz combo outside of the Casino playing "Make me a Memory" --INDEED!
*the blackjack tables at the casino
*Our aft cabin and balcony

I'll look forward to noticing the hickory aroma. Any other tid-bits for us to see or notice about the Radiance?
