Explorer of the Seastravel tips

Life On Board

Set sail on an epic voyage around the Mediterranean Sea. These depart from Rome or Venice and cruise to some of the most beautiful European gems, like Naples, Mykonos, Dubrovnik, Kotor and Athens. Embark on a Caribbean adventure of a lifetime from Miami, visit the exquisite ABC islands as well as Jamaica, Haiti and the Bahamas. Cruises sailing across the Atlantic are an absolute hit, board in October for a Rome to Miami journey and in April to go in the opposite direction. You’ll enjoy lots of sea days to explore everything the ship has to offer. Whenever and wherever you decide to cruise, you’ll be in the good company of fun-loving families with kids and couples aged 30 to 50.


Every detail is thought through, every special need will be met and you’ll feel spoilt with superb service staying on board the Explorer of the Seas. Whatever category you go with, you can count on an attendant servicing your room daily and also nightly, as part of the turndown service. The staterooms themselves provide spa-like comfort, plenty of space, and are filled with every amenity you might think of. Go with an Inside, an Outside or a Balcony Cabin and get away from the hustle and bustle of the ship to your own private haven. Splash out and book a Suite to enjoy even more space, upgraded features and lots of bonus extras. Inter-connecting cabins are great for big groups.

Food & Drink

There are ten very different dining venues for you to indulge your taste buds. Try the numerous included eateries, like the famous Windjammer with its self-serve stations featuring international dishes or the Main Dining Room’s ever-changing menus. Café Promenade and Sorrento’s Pizza boast delicious Mediterranean flavours. Go for something extraordinary at one of the specialty restaurants. Try some of the freshest sushi and sashimi at sea at Izumi or book a table at the legendary Chops Grille to dine on quality, hand-cut prime steaks. Chef’s Table provides the ultimate dining experience on board. Authentic Tuscan dishes are served at Giovanni’s Table. Choose to dine in the privacy of your cabin and order room service that will cost a little extra.


The ship offers endless opportunities to play day or night. Surf or boogie-board the 30000 gallons of water at FlowRider, take part in belly flop competitions or watch a movie under the stars at the main pool and perfect your skills on the ice rink. Feel like a VIP at an all access tour, or learn how to salsa, hip-hop and swing at one of the numerous dance lessons. Evenings are filled with jaw-dropping musical productions like Wild, Cool & Swinging, dance performances, guest entertainers and live concerts. There is always a party going on somewhere on board, be it a themed night or a DJ set by the pool. Have a quiet night at the Library and the Card Room.

Health & Fitness

After a hard day of exploration and activities on board, book some ‘you time’ at the Vitality Spa and enjoy one of the beautiful treatments on offer. Choose between different massages, facials, body wraps, acupuncture and more, all of these are performed using premium brands like bliss, Elemis and La Therapie. Medi-spa therapies will leave you feeling and looking rejuvenated, and a tooth whitening will help you smile with confidence. Take advantage of some adult-only time at the Solarium, an exclusive retreat with the best views on board. Get your energy flowing at the Fitness Centre that’s filled with the latest equipment and offers great classes like Pilates, spinning, sculpting and more. Professional instructors are there to guide and motivate.

Cruising with Children

Young passengers will enjoy discovering most of the onboard activities as much as the adults: jewellery or sushi making classes, rock climbing, splashing around in swimming pools and listening to guest lecturers are all options designed with families in mind. However, there are also offerings that are aimed exclusively at kids. The award-winning Adventure Ocean programme features three clubs divided according to age, where kids have a blast taking part in activities like themed parties, scavenger hunts, sports tournaments and more. There is a Theatre where your little ones can take part in talent shows and performances, and a Science Lab for young chemistry enthusiasts to make space mud and conduct all kinds of experiments.
