Smile Explorer of the Seas Newspapers/TV

I know I know you don't go on a cruise to watch to TV but I am a sports junkie. Anyone know what channels are available. Also when I was on NCL Gem they had newspapers available to be delivered to your room (at a cost of course). Are there newspapers available on Explorer?

Thanks in advance

Almost all ships have two channels of ESPN available - so you definitely get the sports.

I am not sure if RCL has newspapers, but they have news wrapups the give out with sports scores on them.

Some ships actually get digital versions of daily newspapers and print them out and deliver them to staterooms (for a fee).

You always have the Internet as well. I wouldn't watch a game on their, but you get all the scores.

Most "big" games will be shown on the TV - playoffs, all-star, etc.

Royal Caribbean and Explorer of the Seas do not have regular newspapers. What they do is download highlights of papers from aound the world and put them out in the library, they go pretty fast so if u want a copy of the latest news and sports scores suggust you ask one of the customer service reps at the front desk as to what exact time they put the news journals out. I have seen them come out between 8am-noon. It may depend on what part of the world you are sailing as to when they come out. you might check out the Crown and Kettle put on deck five; they may show some games live.
