"Explorer of the Seas is the second ship from the Voyager-class series that was launched back in 1999."

Explorer of the Seas has been totally enhanced and in 2015 will be sailing from Southampton to must-see locations such as the Canary Islands, Palma de Mallorca, Madeira, the Azores and even as far as Agadir in Morocco.

A wealth of on board activities is a staple of the Royal Caribbean fleet, and the Explorer is no different. Amenities include an ice skating rink, rock-climbing wall, basketball court, mini golf and a spa, amongst many others. A choice of dining options makes meal times a delight. 


A wide choice of accommodation on board the Explorer provides a room type to suit all needs and budgets. Live like a king in a Royal Suite, complete with its own private balcony, lounge, and concierge, or enjoy the space on offer in a comfortable Balcony Stateroom.  The choice, and plenty more, is yours.


Go surfing without even leaving the ship! FlowRider is the ultimate surf-simulator, where you can boogie-board, ride a wave or even take a surfing lesson all in one place. Catch the latest blockbusters and sporting events all while enjoying the poolside fun with our new outdoor movie screens. Indulge in a blissful massage, get an invigorating facial or try an acupuncture session to soothe those aches and pains.
