Get Excited! Explorer of the Seas is now sailing from the UK!

By JoWednesday 29th April 2015


Explorer of the Seas has returned! And it’s gearing up to start sailing from Southampton, around some of the most sought-after destinations in Europe and the Mediterranean. For the first time, we’re also cruising around the Azores and North Africa, so it’s a really exciting time to be planning your next cruise holiday with Royal Caribbean! Take a look at our enhanced ship, and some of its great features that will make your cruise holiday full of unforgettable memories.


Spacious rooms

Watch amazing shows in the ship’s beautiful theatre
We’ll make sure that you feel comfortable on your Explorer of the Seas cruise, whichever room you choose.
The Royal Suite is something really special, and is perfect if you’re celebrating a special occasion during your holiday, or if you just want that extra WOW factor during your stay onboard. You’ll have your very own vanity area and lounge, as well as special touches like priority check in, a concierge and luggage valet.
Our Balcony Staterooms give you the perfect space for enjoying a morning breakfast al fresco with the family, or if you want a secluded part of the ship to see the sunset from.
For something comfortable and spacious, our Ocean View Stateroom has its own window looking out to sea, and has all of the final touches that you expect, to give you the most comfortable stay on your cruise holiday.
Similarly, our Interior Staterooms are comfortable and with a mini fridge, TV and 24-hour room service, they serve as the perfect place to relax in between exploring our brilliantly enhanced ship.

So many different activities onboard to enjoy

Explorer of the Seas is packed with great features, so you and the family are never short of things to do whilst onboard. Want to learn to surf? Head to the FlowRider surfing simulator to catch some serious waves, as you’re faced with 60,000 gallons of water that give you the platform to show of your boogie-board and surfing skills! Challenge the family and see who can stay stood up for the longest!
If you’re a culture vulture, check out our 3D Movie Theatre, which uses the latest technology to give you a completely immersive experience. And you needn’t miss out on the great weather either, with our fantastic outdoor movie screen you can splash around whilst watching your favourite movies. If you prefer a more traditional show, venture to our West-End style theatre, and sing along to your favourite shows or be amazed at the world-class performances that are available.
We think it’s really important to keep the kids active whilst onboard, and in addition to enjoying the great swimming pools, you can get them to try out our incredible Rock Wall, which stands at 200 feet! Why not challenge the kids and see who can get to the top in the fastest time? Sports fans will enjoy our basketball court, and you even have the chance to go ice skating on our fantastic ice rink. Plenty of time can be spent simply strolling down our Royal Promenade, which has plenty of shops and restaurants for you to enjoy.

So many great destinations

With cruises leaving from Southampton, Explorer of the Seas will be journeying around a variety of great destinations, from short three day cruises to longer holiday options. Enjoy the fascinating culture of the Norwegian Fjords, and see the art and architecture of Paris and Bruges on our northern Europe cruises.
Alternatively, why not look at a wonderful beach holiday in the Mediterranean, for the chance to see fantastic places like Palma in Mallorca, or Ajaccio, on the French island of Corsica, and enjoy the sunny weather and stunning coastlines on our Spanish Mediterranean cruise.
You get a fantastic mixture of culture and great beaches on the Italian Med cruise on Explorer of the Seas, with the option of visiting fascinating places like Lisbon, La Spezia, Vigo and Cagliari, to name just a few!
We’re really excited to be bringing you cruises to North Africa and the Azores for the first time, with Explorer of the Seas. Check out great new destinations, like Ponta Delgada on the Azores, Funchal on the island of Madeira, wonderful Lanzarote, or even Agadir on coastal Morocco.

Lots of your holiday is already taken care of

You can enjoy so much on your next Royal Caribbean holiday. There are tonnes of activities and perks included, from our top of the range spa and fitness centre, to great activities like mini golf and world-class theatre shows. Kids and adults alike will enjoy the all-you-can-eat ice-cream onboard, and with 24-hour snacks available, you’ll never need to worry about the kids going hungry, and they’ll have lots of fuel for staying active.
