I was on the Red Falcon as the Explorer of the Seas arrived off Cowes and we followed her down Southampton Water but I didn't get a chance to take a picture of her, one thing that did strike me was the fact she had not been given the pale blue hull considering she had just come straight from her refit and dry docking.

Sean That is an interesting comment because I took a photo of the " Anthem of the Seas" later and thought the blue of the hull was the shadow and did not realise they are pale blue.

I would think that the light blue hull paint on the massive Oasis Class ships was applied to visually minimize the massive size of the ships. A shame the latest RCI have lost the elegant curves seen on the Voyager Class ships.

EXPLORER OF THE SEAS as seen here just back from an extensive refit at Navantia in Cadiz. Most visible change is the addition of a bunch of cabins above the bridge (the dark glass part below the foremast, similar in shape to the Viking Crown lounge). Sisters VOYAGER and NAVIGATOR OF THE SEAS have also undergone this treatment and the remaining two ships (ADVENTURE and MARINER OF THE SEAS) will no doubt follow suit. EXPLORER OF THE SEAS has been re-measured due to this additional added space. She now measures 138194 GT.
