Explorer of the Seas is offering a special tour of their cruise ship for families with special needs. An expert from Miami, Ron Pettit, who specializes in cruising and guests with special needs, will be leading the tour and lunch. There is no obligation for anyone to book a cruise, nor will there be anyone soliciting sales. This program is on each and every ship and is year-round;  the Alaska ship visits Seattle every Friday from May – September, however this was the one-and-only date the expert can visit.  Royal Caribbean doesn’t want people that may have considered a cruise, but passed on the idea, to miss out on this opportunity to visit a cruise ship.
