Explorer of the Seas

Explorer doesn’t try to divide the vessel into smaller ‘zones’ – rather the whole ship has the same look and feel, and while there’s no risk of getting lost, and the décor isn’t horribly samey, there isn’t the same sense of personal space you get on some other liners in the fleet. To find peace and quiet try the lovely two-deck library!
