I've seen the date December 22 2014 for the upgrade of Explorer of the Seas. I'm not sure that is correct.

Erik, I cruised Sovereign of the Seas twice. She was a lovely ship-my only complaint was the size of the staterooms-but even that is fine-if only 2 people share a stateroom. I do not need a lot of...
