As part of the Voyager class, Explorer of the Seas is a member of Royal Caribbean's family of largest ships. Weighing 138,000 tons and having the ability to carry 3,114 passengers, it has more people walking on its decks than some small towns have people walking their streets. Being that it is one of the largest cruise ships around means that there is an almost endless supply of things to do and see while on board. Besides the amazing onboard atmosphere, Royal Caribbean Explorer of the Seas has been able to give passengers unforgettable off-the-ship experiences on a Caribbean cruise vacation ever since she took her maiden voyage on October 28, 2000.
If you've been longing for a trip to the Caribbean, one of the Royal Caribbean cruises on this ship will let you travel in rhapsody to every nook and cranny of the Eastern, Western, or Southern islands. Almost as many Caribbean adventures as grains of sand on the beach await you at the ports of call at which she stops. Climb hand-in-hand up the famous Dunn River Falls in Jamaica. Snorkel in Cozumel. Shop in for clothing, jewelry, or practically anything you can imagine in the duty-free ports of St. Thomas, St. Maarten, or St. George. Wiggle your toes deep into the sand or parasail high above the beachgoers. No matter if you prefer a day with your family on the beach or an exciting sightseeing tour with your significant other, your wish can be granted. You could also stop off at Labadee, one of a private islands that is only available to guests on one of the Royal Caribbean vacations.
Awe-struck, dumbfounded, speechless - these are simply a few adjectives to describe what happens to people when they step onboard. Everywhere you turn, possibilities abound (try not to get dizzy). From rock climbing (yes, rock climbing!), shooting hoops at the full-sized basketball court, playing miniature golf, or simply lounging by one of the pools onboard, you may find that the hardest choice is what not to do!
Perhaps you want to keep up your physique while on board, or simply want to have your muscles' knots and daily cares kneaded away. Come visit the ShipShape Spa and Fitness Center and you'll have access to the most state-of-the-art equipment available anywhere, as well as access to a wide assortment of spa techniques. You'll be able to go straight from working up a sweat on the treadmill to working up a sweat in the steam room. Get a hot rock massage or facial at the ShipShape Spa as you gaze out at a tranquil blue sea - it's the perfect way to unwind after vigorous exercise.
For more quiet or relaxing diversions, take a cooking class, participate in a wine tasting seminar, spend a quiet afternoon in our library, or access the internet to let you're friends know how much of a good time you're having. Go shopping for souvenirs or pieces of art. You can even join Royal Caribbean Explorer of the Seas SeaTrek Scuba Diving class so you can become prepared for the some time beneath the surface of the water at your next port of call. Royal Caribbean Explorer of the Seas even features the University of Miami Ocean Lab, a state-of-the-art oceanographic and atmospheric science lab. Although scientists and students make up the majority of the lab's visitors, anyone onboard Royal Caribbean Explorer of the Seas can schedule a tour if they are interested.
This ship is so spacious that its elegant main dining room had to divided into three sections: Columbus, Da Gama, and Magellan. But no matter which room you choose, you'll find the service is as good as the food; the Gold Anchor commitment to service applies to what's on the plate as much as to who is serving it. If guests are in the mood for a lighter meal, they can visit Windjammer for a great buffet or the Café Promenade for a tasty sandwich or hot slice of pizza. If you feel like a blast from the past, visit Johnny Rockets for great burger and shake. And as with every Royal Caribbean ship, 24 hour room service is available.
You might forget you're on a cruise ship and not in New York City when you sit down for a evening of Broadway-style entertainment in the theatre. And no, you didn't just step off the strip in Las Vegas-the casino onboard Royal Caribbean Explorer of the Seas offers poker, blackjack, roulette, and more. Live bands, magicians, and comedians are also part of the entertainment on this great cruise. Stop down at any of the bars, lounges, or clubs onboard to have a cocktail or beer with friends or dance it up into the starry night. But make sure you take a trip to the Viking Lounge where there is a 360 degree view of the world as you sail through the seas.
Having a comfortable, clean, and spacious stateroom to return to after a long day of activities and entertainment is very important. Would you settle for anything less? Of course not. Choices range from an interior stateroom, an oceanview stateroom, a stateroom with a balcony, to a luxury suite with a private balcony. There are also several options within those four main categories, but all rooms contain at least a television, telephone, private bath, shower, vanity and even a hair-dryer. No matter what room you choose, your stay onboard is sure to be a pleasure.
