Explorer of the Seas

Explorer of the Seas Gives Adventure a New Home

Over 15 decks, the Explorer of the Seas is home to 15 lounges, clubs, and bars, 10 pools and whirlpools, and impressive activities at sea — such as rock climbing, ice skating, a basketball court, testing the FlowRider® surf simulator, and playing mini golf. At night the Royal Promenade livens up with duty-free shopping, parades, and dancing.

Want to experience a three-story dining room? Or if you’re staying in an interior stateroom, how about a real-time, virtual projected balcony view? You can see both on the Explorer of the Seas. On the other end of the spectrum, suites offer concierge service and baby grand pianos.

When you’re looking for downtime, you can have your choice of three pools and six whirlpools on the Explorer of the Seas. Perhaps you’d rather take a tai chi or yoga class. If you’re hungry, choose from a steakhouse, the dining room, Italian or Japanese cuisine, and more.
