Portofino
Enjoy a delicious Italian meal in an intimate and romantic setting. From classic Italian dishes to new creations, the menu has something for everyone.

Johnny Rockets
Get the family together for good old-fashioned burgers and fries. With its retro décor and classic all-American menu, Johnny Rockets is like the 1950s all over again.

Windjammer
Enjoy spectacular buffets and incredible views. The casual convenience of the Windjammer Café and the wide variety on the menu make this restaurant a guest favorite.

Room Service
With so much to do all day, you may just forget to eat. Not a problem. Room service is complimentary for all guests and is available 24 hours a day.

Cabins

After a day of exploring the world, its exotic cuisine and interesting cultures, there's nothing better than returning to the comfort of your private cabin. Royal Caribbean has designed every cabin onboard Explorer of the Seas to be a comfortable, relaxing place for you to rest after your adventures. Every room offers a television, telephone, private bath, shower, vanity and even a hair-dryer.

Suite
Relax in luxury in Royal Caribbeans' comfortable suites. Most offer multiple rooms, balconies, and some even offer extras like complimentary concierge service or a baby grand piano.

Balcony
Open your private balcony and take in the beautiful view. It's a great way to get close to every destination and make the most of your vacation at sea.

Are you on Broadway or a cruise ship? Royal Caribbean's amazing shows will have you wondering. They're offered several times a week, and shouldn't be missed.

Studio B
From ice-skating and ice shows to cooking demonstrations and game shows, it all happens in the multipurpose Studio B.

Other Entertainment
There's always something going on and plenty of ways to be entertained. Not to mention, you can always take center stage yourself at karaoke, trivia contests, game shows and more.

Other Activities
You could run from activity to activity all day long and still never get to everything. From sports and pool games to tournaments and dance instruction, there truly is an onboard activity for everyone.

Casino

There's nothing like the sound of cards being shuffled, chips being stacked and slot machines paying off. Royal Caribbean considers their Casino Royale to be a little bit of Vegas, a little bit of Monte Carlo and a lot of Royal Caribbean fun. Explorer of the Seas has games for all levels of players. There are onboard lessons for novice players and tournaments for the more advanced. Casino Royale is open whenever you are sailing, so stop in and try your luck!

Fitness / Recreation

Shipshape Fitness Center
The onboard fitness facility offers state-of-the-art equipment, saunas and whirlpools, and all the latest classes, like yoga and pilates. They've got everything the most sophisticated fitness clubs have - weight machines, treadmills, spinning bikes - plus an amazing view.

SeaTrek Scuba Diving
You're in the middle of the Caribbean - what better place to check out the underwater world and learn to scuba dive? You can get certified right onboard in just a few lessons.

Rock Climbing Wall
Royal Caribbean's signature rock climbing walls are the most popular feature and are available on all Royal Caribbean cruise ships. They offer skill combinations for all levels, not to mention one of the best views from the ship.

Spa

Embark on a pathway to complete relaxation. Indulge your mind, body and soul onboard Explorer of the Seas with an Elemis Aroma Stone Therapy or an Exotic Frangipani Hair & Scalp Conditioning Treatment. The Day Spa offers an array of cultural therapies designed to entice avid spa lovers, couples and men!

Kids

Fun isn't just for adults at Royal Caribbean. Kids from 3-17 years old are invited to take part in the exciting, complimentary Adventure Ocean® Youth Programs. Adventure Ocean was specially designed to blend educational activities with just plain fun. Every cruise is different. But one thing never changes: your child will get to learn about local customs, do cool science experiments, and make great new friends. To participate in their Adventure Ocean programs or use the onboard pools and whirlpools, children must be three years of age and potty-trained (diaper and pull-up free).

Aquanauts Ages 3-5 Years
Kids from 3-5 years of age can play games, color, and even become Certified Jr. Adventure Scientists.

Voyagers Ages 9-11 Years
Kids 9-11 years of age can take a backstage tour, play List-o-Rama, and even learn a new sport like Gagaball.

Navigators Ages 12-14 Years
Navigators 12-14 years of age can play games and sports, join parties and contests, or just hang out at their teen lounge, The Living Room.

Guests Ages 15-17 Years
Teens 15-17 years of age can play games and sports, join parties and contests, hang out at their teen lounge, The Living Room, or dance the night away at Fuel, their teen-only club.

Shopping

Shops
Who knew there was such great shopping in the middle of the ocean? You'll find everything from designer clothes and souvenirs to any toiletries you may have forgotten to pack.

Art
If you're looking to add to your collection, you might find just what you're looking for at one of our onboard art auctions. If browsing is more your style, walk through the onboard gallery or take a guided tour of the ship with the onboard art auctioneer.
