Explorer of the Seas

Ship Rating:
After a day of exploration ashore, come back to your restful retreat onboard Explorer of the Seas. Refueling is easy and delicious at any of the food spots. A favorite is Izumi, offering some of the best sushi in cruising. Check out FlowRider, the 40 foot surfing simulator where the waves are always hot. FlowRider offers 30,000 gallons of rushing exhilaration while your friends cheer you on. You can also check out the rock climbing wall which offers unparalleled views and adventure. The whole family will enjoy the fine onboard entertainment, including ice skating shows, original productions, parades and live music. Drop the kids off at Adventure Ocean, a well staffed youth program, while you get some rest and relaxation at the spa. A plethora of pubs, bars and lounges will keep you entertained while your kids are enjoying some enriching time with other children. Explorer of the Seas
