Very enjoyable cruise. The food and service in the sapphire dining room was lovely but the buffet could have offered a bit more variety.

Thank you Planet Cruise for organising the extra night in Seattle - it certainly added to the whole experience. Loved the individual cars to take us to and from the hotel/ship etc just a shame we had to pay extra on arrival because of the huge delays in clearing American customs. As always the Royal Caribbean service was great on what was a fantastic itinery. This was our first holiday booked through Planet Cruise and it certainly all went very smoothly!

Particarly excellent service in restaurant and cabin but very expensive drinks rather spoilt our enjoyment. 35 us dollars for the cheapest bottle of wine! Daytime entertainment limited when on the ocean - maybe this was reflected in price as an affordable cruise. Evening shows in the theatre were of a good quality, the ice show was fantastic. Limited bar space particularly in the promenade area caused many passengers to leave and try to go elsewhere for entertainment. At this time of the year need to forget showing films outside in the evening and re schedule to another venue within the ship. Far too blowy to watch Men In Black.

Explorer is an old ship, about 20 years old. They have recently started to refurbish and the balcony cabin we had was brilliant no complaints at all, entertainment very good, ice show fantastic, would recommend

I sailed on Explorer OTS earlier in the year to Norway, and the cruise was amazing. However the quality of everything had severely dropped this holiday, including the quality of food, entertainment and staff attitude.

The cruise was great,the ship was good,the staff were all polite and helpful. The only quibble was the price of drinks on board, very expensive. We had looked into a drinks package but felt that was not cheap. However we would go on R/C again, maybe a larger one from Southampton as I don't fly.

Lovely ship with lovely staff. My one negative would be that drinks are expensive ( alcohol ).The drinks package was expensive too, so was not worth it for us. We would have liked a wine package- but none on offer. A cocktail of the day at a discounted price would have been nice, other cruise lines do this. The entertainment was good each night and we enjoyed our cruise.
