We were impressed that we received the package of set sail docs, baggage labels and Lanyon. Thank you. We have never received this with other cruises we have booked."

All aboard the Explorer of the Seas for 6 unforgettable nights on this Tasmania Cruise exploring Australia. Your ship departs from Sydney and visits 3 ports in 1 countries before returning to Sydney. This 4 star cruise from Royal Caribbean Cruises has 1 forward departures, but is unfortunately sold out for this departure.

Explorer of the Seas Overview

Explorer of the Seas alternates between Sydney and Seattle. From Sydney she sails to Pacific islands – New Caledonia, Vanuatu, Fiji – and to the Great Barrier Reef, over 7 to 14 nights. Sampler cruises of 3 nights will give you an office break, and you can evaluate your taste for cruising. From Seattle Explorer of the Seas runs 7-night cruises through the Inside Passage of Alaska’s fjord and glacier coast. Between seasons cross the Pacific around October and April over 21/22 nights, calling at Hawaii, New Caledonia, Vanuatu, and Fiji. Bridge two continents at a very low fare. For many the ship will be the destination, giving an opportunity to relax in holiday-like surroundings. Explorer of the Seas entered service in 2001, completed a major refit in 2015. At 137,308 GT she carries 3228 passengers. Newest additions include a Flow-Rider surf simulator, and virtual balconies in Interior cabins (80? vertical flat screens displaying live exterior landscapes).

Accommodation

Staterooms come in four main categories and 22 grades, with variations based on guests’ needs: Suites/Deluxe, Balcony, Outside and Interior Staterooms. When selecting accommodation consider the view, the level of privacy, and location near to or far from activity areas. Interior cabins have a ‘virtual balcony’ wall display of the passing ocean views. All staterooms come with private bathroom, vanity area, hair dryer, interactive TV and phone. Many cabins are family-friendly with up to four additional bunk beds, and interconnecting rooms. Promenade staterooms overlook the interior Royal Promenade, and some accommodate up to six people. There are no single cabins, and many are wheelchair-accessible. In-cabin service and dining is available 24-hours.

Food and Dining

For the Main Dining Room, spread over three levels, select from three dining choices before cruising: fixed seating at the same table nightly, at either early or late sitting; open-seated My Time Dining (with pre-paid gratuities) at a flexible time; and early sitting My Family Time Dining that allows children aged 3 to 11 years to leave for their Adventure Ocean kids club. Menus feature healthy, vegetarian and kosher options. Special dietary needs can be catered for by giving advanced notice. Menus change daily throughout the cruise. Evening dress is casual or smart casual. Expect one to three formal evenings in the Main Dining Room during your cruise. There are seven complimentary eating options, including Windjammers Café, Izumi Sushi and Asian cuisine, Café Promenade for coffee, pastries/snacks, and room service.

Entertainment

Signature features to entertain you include: Broadway-style productions in the Main Theatre; Studio B’s ice shows, comedy, game shows, onboard parties, and cooking demonstrations (and when the rink is not being used, skate for free); and gaming in Casino Royale. Live music features around the pool, in the main dining room, and in many lounges, bars and specialty venues. There are always parties and parades to join. Alternatively, just stroll around the Royal Promenade and shop duty-free, or for a quiet time retire to the Library/Card Room or Internet Café.
