Questions about Explorer of the Seas sailing Canada/New Eng
Crusing on Royal Caribbean out of NJ on 8/28/08. The cruise ship is Explorer of the Seas. First time on RC. We only sailed on Celebrity before. Can you tell me about the excursions, food, exercise equipment exercise classes, and ship help with computer classes for downloading photos?
We are looking forward to this cruise. You will enjoy the ship. This will be our 3rd on the Explorer. Both previous times were in the Caribbean.
Excursions for our cruise are not posted yet.
The Ship Shape Fitness Center is large, with lots of machines. You shouldn't have problems with access to equipment. There are usually lots of classes. You can earn ShipShape dollars for participation and can redeem them at the end of the cruise for ShipShape hats, t-shirts, etc.
We usually don't comment too much on the food; food tastes are so subjective. We have never gone hungry or felt that the overall food quality and taste were not good.
There are usually classes offered by the Photo Gallery on downloading pictures. If not, they will assist you, especially if you buy a new camera!
Although it may be frowned on, you might go to the "other" major cruise board, CruiseCritic, and read the thread for this cruise. It is more active than the one on this site.
