Entertainment on the Explorer Of The Seas Cruise Ship

Explore All Entertainment Facilities on Explorer Of The Seas

SO MUCH MORE TO EXPLORE

Your next holiday is going to be even wilder. Welcome to Explorer of the Seas®. A ship that offers as many thrills and relaxation opportunities as it does its destination. Like relaxing in an adult-only solarium. Tee off at the mini golf course on deck with breathtaking ocean views. Eight and double axles on the ice rink. And spend 10 sessions with the fan-favorite FlowRider®.

SURF'S UP

Grab your board and get ready to ride. At 412 meters in length, the FlowRider® surfing simulator is the ultimate Hang Ten hangout. Carve straight into the waves like a pro surfer or a belly boogie board while the 114,000 liters of rushing water keeps you afloat. Cheer on your friends from the sidelines or even splatter with every wipeout.

ROCK THE RINK

After a day of exploring and sunbathing on the pool deck, lace up your skates and venture out to the chill zone of the onboard ice rink. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced skater, all adventure seekers are welcome on the ice.

JOIN THE POOL PARTY

Sit on the pool deck and soak up the island atmosphere. Families can enjoy the main pool, which hosts belly flop contests, movies under the stars, and DJ dance parties. For grown-up relaxation, head to the adults-only solarium where endless ocean views and tranquility are everything.

KEEP ADVENTURE GOING AFTER HOURS

Explorer of the Seas® has no curfew for thrill-seekers. As the sun sets, start your night with classic cocktails at the R Bar, beer and live performances at the Crown & Kettle Pub, singalongs at the Schooner Bar, and salsa steps on the Boleros dance floor.

VINTAGE VIBES & CLASSIC COCKTAILS

R Bar serves classic cocktails with a touch of nostalgia. Inspired by the chic pubs of the 50's and his 60's, this sleek and sophisticated lounge is the perfect place to relax with an old-fashioned gin martini or a dry gin martini.

JOIN THE PUB

As soon as you enter Crown & Kettle, you feel like you've traveled to London. Choose from an extensive beer list ranging from pilsners to porters, or enjoy your favorite spirits and British-style cocktails. Stay awhile and meet one of the musicians who regularly stop by for performances.

Casino

BET ON BIG ACTION

There's nothing to stir your sense of excitement like the sound of cards being shuffled, chips being stacked and poker machines paying out. Consider the Casino Royale? to be your little slice of Vegas at sea – with thousands of square feet of lights, action, slots and tables.

RESTRICTIONS

18+

Royal Promenade

in the center of the ship. At two football fields and four stories high, the Royal Promenade is lined with boutique shops and his 24-hour casual eatery.

Palace Theatre

The stunning Palace Theater stands five stories high (from the orchestra pit to the vaulted ceiling) and hosts contemporary musical stage productions, West End-style shows and stand-up comedians.

Pool Bar

HYDRATE AT THE POOLSIDE BAR

You don’t have to stray too far from your comfy poolside lounger to enjoy a cool and creamy piña colada, a tropical Mai Tai, a glass of bubbly, or your favourite ice cold brew — just pull up a chair at the Pool Bar.

HOW TO PURCHASE

Beverage Package or A La Carte

AGE RESTRICTION

21+ on sailings from North America, 18+ on sailings from South America, Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

MENU HIGHLIGHTS

Whether your go-to spirit is vodka, gin, tequila, whiskey or rum, you’ll find something delicious to sip on at the Pool Bar. Tequila lovers should definitely try the Royal Citrus Ritatini, made with Avion Silver, Cointreau and fresh lime, or the Smokey Rita — a twist on the classic marg that spotlights Del Maguey Vida Blanco mezcal, triple sec, orange juice and margarita mix. If you’re more into whiskey or bourbon, opt for a classic Manhattan or a Rob Roy, both blended with just the right amount of sweet vermouth. And if you’re in the mood for something ginny, try the blood orange negroni — elevated with a small splash of blood orange, it’ll transport you straight to the storied bars of Florence, where this classic aperitif was born.

PRO TIP

If you don’t want to leave your lounger, an attendant can bring your order to you from the bar.

Schooner Bar

LIVE MUSIC & MASTERFUL MIXING

Wrap up your night at Schooner Bar, where perfectly mixed cocktails and live entertainment come together in a warm-lit nautical-themed lounge. Cozy up in a seat under the mast, by the portholes, or right by the gleaming grand piano. The sing-along's about to being.

HOW TO PURCHASE

Beverage Package or A La Carte

AGE RESTRICTION

21+ on sailings from North America, 18+ on sailings from South America, Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

MENU HIGHLIGHTS

If you love a great old fashioned, you’ll find five versions of it on the menu at Schooner Bar, including a tropical twist that blends muddled cherries and pineapple with orange bitters and Malibu Coconut rum, and an innovative New Fashioned that brings in pink grapefruit, fresh raspberries, and a little bit of Southern Comfort. You can also dial up your night with a glamorous champagne cocktail, topped with Domaine Chandon and sweetened with an Angostura-doused sugar cube. Or sip your way across the Caribbean with a Zacapa rum-spiked daiquiri, shaken hard and double-strained, or a classic Papa Doble, prepared with Bacardi Superior rum, lychee and grapefruit juice. If you’re a fan of the Tom Collins, you’ll find that, too — plus four additional versions that each spotlight a different spirit.

PRO TIP

Up for something different? Let the bartender know what your favorite spirit is, and ask them to whip you up a surprise.

Sports Bar

Passengers can watch the big game while sipping beer at the onboard sports bar. Kind of like your favorite sports bar at home - just the ocean!

Viking Crown Lounge®

SAVOUR THE SIPS & THE SIGHTS

Our fleet’s signature architectural wonder, the Viking Crown Lounge® is the ultimate spot to soak up panoramic views while you sip your favourite cocktails.

R Bar

SHAKING UP THE CLASSICS

Swanky, sophisticated, and suffused with retro style, R Bar serves up classic cocktails garnished with vintage vibes. Whether your drink of choice is a dry gin martini, an expertly mixed old fashioned, or the perfect gin and tonic, you’ll find plenty to savour here.

AGE RESTRICTION

21+ on sailings from North America, 18+ on sailings from South America, Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

MENU HIGHLIGHTS

The vintage décor at R Bar creates the perfect atmosphere to order a classic old fashioned or gimlet, but you should definitely also try one of the signature cocktails on the menu. Those who prefer their drinks on the fruity side will love the Purple Haze, made with Bacardi 8 rum, blue curacao and Pernod, and shaken with pineapple juice, passion fruit puree and a splash of grenadine. For a cocktail that doubles as dessert, opt for the aptly-named Red Velvet Cake, a decadent infusion of limoncello, dark chocolate liqueur, crème de cacao white and strawberry puree. If you’re craving something smooth, but strong, there’s the Green Goddess. It’s a potent blend of Belvedere vodka, Hennessy, blue curacao and mango puree, topped off with a twist of lemon. And for fans of fizzy drinks, it doesn’t get better than the Let’s Get Fizzical, a refreshingly light combination of passion fruit puree, apple juice and St-Germain elderflower liqueur topped with prosecco.

PRO TIP

The bartenders here are pros. Let them surprise you with something that’s not on the menu.
