Explorer of the Seas

Explorer of the Seas

Overview

Explorer of the Seas® by Royal Caribbean Cruises urges passengers to “sail away to a place where innovation rules.” Catch a contemporary musical production at the Palace Theatre, use the state-of-the-art conference room for meetings, or enjoy the onboard skating rink.

Explorer of the Seas, built in 2000, received Royal Caribbean's “Royal Advantage” upgrade treatment in February 2015. Upgrades included new entertainment and dining options, as well as brand-new inside staterooms equipped with virtual balconies.
