Things to do


There's always something exciting for you to do or be a part of on Royal Caribbean's Explorer of the Seas. From sunrise to sunset good times are waiting to be had around every corner.

For those who relish in the active lifestyle, set yourself the challenge of conquering the rock climbing wall that towers 200ft above sea level and 30 ft above the deck, or why not attempt a vigorous work out under the watchful instruction of qualified personal trainers? In addition to these features you can also choose to swim, jog, practice your in-line skating, work on your golf swing or shoot some hoops at the sports court whilst on your way to the next destination.

If your idea of a perfect holiday isn’t all about being active, there is also a luxurious onboard Spa, offering everything from massages to facials and body wraps, meaning that you can leave your cruise feeling well and truly pampered.

From taking in the wonderful art exhibitions, relaxing in the quiet of the library or enjoying a little bit of shopping in Explorer of the Seas boutique, days onboard with Royal Caribbean’s Explorer of the Seas will make you feel like you never want to leave.

To up that holiday feeling even further, there is a main pool, two smaller pools and several jacuzzis, so you can sit back and soak up the sun from the comfort of the deck. There's also the Perfect Storm and Storm Surge waterslides for those looking for something a little more exhilarating!
