Default Explorer Question

Looking at Explorer of the Seas in January 2014. How long does it take for the ship to reach warm weather during full-on winter?

Usually about 1-1/2 to 2 days.

But it's not too bad since the Explorer of the Seas has alot of amenities to keep you busy.

Which Itinerary are you looking at in January? the 7 night Bahamas or 9 night Caribbean?

I would recommend the 9 nighter you will get more warmer days. The 7 night Bahamas/Orlando route can be chilly in January depending how the winter is going in Florida.

Go for the 9 nighter!!

I only saw alternating 9 and 10-night cruises to the leeward islands in January...
If the finances hold out, it will likely be one of those, late January or early February.
