Explorer of the Seas

One of the most innovative ships afloat

Like her sister-ship, Voyager of the Seas, the 142,000-ton Explorer boasts some of the most innovative shipboard amenities to be found at sea.

The Voyager-class ships are the only vessels to offer vacationers an ice-skating rink, a rock climbing wall 200 feet above sea level, an inline skating track, full-court basketball and interior staterooms with views of a shopping, dining and entertainment boulevard.
