"Explorer of the seas": The New Titanic?

"Explorer of The Seas ". There's never been a ship like this. Enjoy never-seen- before cruise features like a skating rink, a rock-climbing wall, a street fair - and more. There was only one way to accommodate all of these innovative ideas. We built a bigger ship. The 142,000- ton, 3,114-guest Explorer boasts the highest space-per-guest ratio in the cruise market - and includes enhanced staterooms, expanded dining options and exceptional recreational facilities.

Let’s hope it will have a longer life....

Ship Highlights:

Main Dining Room - The world-class food and decor in the main dining rooms makes them the perfect choice for groups both large and small! From heavenly appetizers and entr�es to delectable desserts, this is fine dining that everyone can enjoy. And you'll also enjoy an extra special treat when our staff performs parades in the main dining room!

Portofino Restaurant - From the first bite of the antipasto to the last spoonful of tiramisu, dining in the elegant atmosphere of Portofino is an evening to remember. Sample some of our chef's new creations or have one of your favorites prepared the classic way. Either way, you won't be disappointed.

Windjammer Cafe - The Windjammer Cafe is the perfect place to grab a bite to eat before hitting the pool or enjoy a casual dinner to top off a day of adventure. Open almost around the clock, it offers great food, spectacular views and an attentive wait staff, all in a casual atmosphere.

Johnny Rockets Restaurant - Get the family together for good old-fashioned burgers and fries. The Johnny Rockets restaurant you'll find onboard is everything you'd expect from the shoreside restaurant - authentic 1950s decor, a menu filled with all-American favorites and, of course, friendly service. Johnny Rockets is a great casual dining alternative that everyone in the family will enjoy.

Weekend Warrior Sports Bar - You don't have to miss the big game just because you're at sea. Enjoy a beer and watch your favorite team at our fun sports bars. It's just like your favorite sports bar at home - only it's at sea.

Champagne Bar - Make a toast to your vacation in one of our Champagne Bars, the perfect place to raise a glass in honor of your cruise adventure. Celebrate your first night onboard, a new stamp in your passport or simply the fact that you're at sea. This quiet and elegant bar offers many different sparkling wines, champagnes, and an assortment of canap�s for you to enjoy.

Schooner Bar - There's nothing quite like relaxing in a nautical-themed bar when you're at sea, especially if you're in the Schooner Bar, a Royal Caribbean signature bar and guest favorite. In the evening, you may find a crowd gathered around the piano singing along with any one of the talented piano players featured.

Rock Climbing Wall: Royal Caribbean cruise ships are the only ones in the world to offer rock-climbing walls. Whether it's your first time on a rock wall or if you're a seasoned climber, there are challenges for all levels of experience. Royal Caribbean will provide all of the equipment, including shoes, helmets and harnesses. All you need to do is bring a pair of socks and, of course, your sense of adventure.

Royal Promenade - Cruising's first horizontal atrium, is two football fields in length and four decks high. With a wide selection of shops, restaurants and entertainment the Royal Promenade will be the place to be.

Skating Rink: Take a shot at a double axle in the only ice skating rink at sea. Or, once the rink is converted to a stage, settle in for an unforgettable show in the same unique area.
