The debut of the Royal Caribbean ship, Explorer of the Seas, will usher in the coming Australian cruise season. The Explorer of the Seas, which replaces another Royal Caribbean vessel, Rhapsody of the Seas, will homeport in Sydney.
While the Explorer will homeport in Sydney during the Australian cruise season, it will set out on its first Australian cruise from Fremantle, located in Perth, on Friday 13 November 2015. From there, the vessel will be cruising until it reaches its first destination, Adelaide, Australia, on 17 November 2015. One day of cruising will follow until the ship reaches the port of Melbourne on 19 November 2015.
The ship will reach Milford Sound, New Zealand on 22 November 2015 with stops at Doubtful Sound and Dusky Sound the following two days. Excursions follow at the ports-of-call of Dunedin, Picton, and Wellington, all located in New Zealand. The ship will then cruise for two days before arriving back in Sydney on 28 November 2015.
After this initial cruise, the ship’s itinerary also includes seven-night trips to Alaska, each of which will depart from Seattle, Washington. Cruise-goers will be able to take a 24-night Transpacific Cruise on the Explorer of the Seas as well.
The ship, which features a 3D movie theatre, is also home to an ice-skating rink, miniature golf course, basketball court, and running track. A new FlowRider adds to the variety of the ship’s myriad activities.
The main dining room on the ship also offers multi-course dining for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Guests may also dine at the ship’s signature steakhouse, Chop’s Grille, or Izumi, which is known for its tasty Japanese cuisine. The Windjammer Cafe and Asian-fusion are also popular onboard eateries. Guest may call the Cafe Promenade for room service offerings or coffee and pastries.
