RCI Explorer of the Seas * April 24 - 30, 2025

As we set sail on the Explorer of the Seas, we will see the famous RCI Promenade back in action with more playtime and more time to enjoy the Bliss experience. This will be the second time our spring cruisers will get to experience the Royal Promenade. The Promenade is designed to emulate an upscale European street scene, lined with shops, bars, and a 24-hour cafe (a great venue to snack and people watch). Featuring atmospheric lighting which changes color throughout the day and night, quirky art features and sculptures, the area is also a hive of activity. The Promenade will host a variety of Bliss Cruise Meet & Greets, Bliss Cruise evening themed dance parties, Royal Caribbean Random Acts of Entertainment, and more. It's a great place to gather, hang out and connect with all of your fun-loving friends.

Beautiful beaches, majestic mountains, historic sites, culinary experiences, and outdoor adventures—discover the many sides of Puerto Rico.

Cruise Themes

You just can't have a lifestyle cruise without having a theme for each night! Let your imagination run wild when planning your costumes. It is not required that you dress in theme but it can add some extra fun to the evening!

 

The themes have not been announced yet for this cruise but once they are we will be sure to post them.

Date Theme

*The order of the themes is subject to change.

It is always recommended that you arrive the night before the cruise to ensure that you do not miss the boat. For those of you that wish to follow our recommendation, we will make arrangements at a hotel for a group rate to stay the night before the cruise. We'll be hosting a pre-cruise Meet & Greet Reception to give everyone the opportunity to start getting to know the others that you will be sailing the open waters with.

At this point, details for the hotel, Meet & Greet Reception and shuttle service have not been finalized yet for this cruise.

There are 2 ways to book your cruise: online using our interactive booking system or by phone at 954-462-5477.

How to book online:

  1. Select the number of guests sharing your cabin
  2. Choose a deck
  3. Select your cabin
  4. Review your selection
  5. Register an account
  6. Confirm booking details
  7. Make a payment

Have credit card information on hand to make a deposit and secure your room. Also make sure to have the passport names and D.O.B for all guests.

Cabin Type

Do you prefer a cabin with or without a window? Cabins without a window are normally located on the inside corridor of the ship. There are also balcony rooms and suites. Balcony rooms come with an outside patio area where the scenery can be enjoyed without leaving quarters. Suites include a sleeping and dining area with additional amenities. ** If someone in your party is prone to sea sickness, choose a cabin that is in a lower level and in the middle of the ship.

Cabin Size

Having comfortable surroundings is important when going on a week-long cruise. Will you be spending a lot of time in the cabin? Do you want to wake up and drink coffee on the balcony? A small cabin with no window isn't a good fit for passengers that are claustrophobic. Make sure to determine your needs ahead of time and book a cabin size accordingly.

Amenities

Cabins and suites offer a wide range of amenities from Concierge services, to menu upgrades and spa access, to wet bars and butlers in the suite class. Determine which perks will make your vacation complete before finalizing a cabin.
