Explorer of the Seas ®

Where innovations rule







The Explorer of the Seas lives up to its name taking you to an array of destination that you will get the chance to explore - both on board and ashore! Onboard get an adrenaline rush by climbing the rock wall, shoot a hoop on the basket ball court or whiz around on the ice skating rink, even practice your putt on the mini golf course. If you want a more relaxed time, spend your time with a book by the pool or get a spa treatment in the fully equipped Vitality Spa. Fun times are to be had in the evenings - theater entertainment, lively parades, foot tapping music and dance on the Royal Promenade and much more. Couple this with great dining, impeccable personalized service and comfortable staterooms and you have a winning combination on board the Explorer of the Seas!
