The review of our 9 day Voyage on the Explorer to the Eastern Caribbean has just been posted.
I noticed this is the first review since 11 April. Am I the only person on this forum to have sailed on the Explorer since that time?
I've found reviews are not only a tremendous enjoyment to read but they offer a ton of useful information, especially for those who have never cruised but would like to. Whether it be the Explorer or any other ship, wouldn't it be nice were everyone who takes a cruise to review it for the rest of us? If someone doesn't know what to write, I'm sure anyone of us would be more than willing to help them out.
Todd I read your review, it was done very nicely. My wife and I were on Exporer in 06 and loved it. You had a wonderful time and I believe that you choose how your cruise will turn out. If you want to hate the food then you probably will. If you want to have a good time then you probably will. I don't appreciate people trashing the ships and crew. They all work hard for their money. have a wonderful day.

As alluded to in my review, my wife Fran and I stick pretty much near the ship. Of course she never passed a casino she didn't love and there's one in the Sheraton that just happened to be directly across the street from where we docked, so.........
You'll only be in San Juan about five hours. They do have some pretty highly rated excursions but for various and sundry reasons, we no longer have the energy to indulge in many of those things. Yes, I'd love to go and hop on a Seadoo but when I mentioned it, my adored wife said something to the effect that either the thing would sink, or it couldn't even get going if I got on it. She can be mighty cruel (if truthful) at times. In any event, hope and am sure, you'll have a magnificent cruise.
Thanks for your kind words and support. Both are sincerely appreciated
We are also scheduled to sail on Explorer of the Seas this November on a 12-night cruise! We saw Explorer of the Seas last year, up close and personal when we were docked in Puerto Rico.
We also see Explorer of of the Seas in Bermuda as she is coming into port of going out (boy do you just want to swim out and get aboard)! They must have had a difficult time this week due to Hurricane Bertha because she could not come into port that day but had to wait until Tuesday morning and then left Tuesday evening.
Although I have been on many cruises, I have never written a review, or responded to one. Yours was a pleasure to read. I admit that I read the reviews for intertainment. The things people can dream up to whine about is limitless and always fun to read. I was on the Explorer in May and like all my other cruises, it was a joy.
