Explorer of the Seas is a Voyager-class cruise ship owned and operated by Royal Caribbean International, completed in 2000. She can accommodate over 3,000 guests, including scientists making use of a built-in atmospheric and oceanographic laboratory operated by the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science. The manned lab with its attendant educational and outreach programs for passengers was discontinued in 2007. An automated system for gathering data was installed in 2008.
At launch, Explorer of the Seas had a tonnage of 137,308 GT, exceeding that of her sister ship Voyager of the Seas by 32 GT and making her the world’s largest passenger ship. She held that record until being overtaken by Navigator of the Seas in 2002. In early 2015, Explorer of the Seas received major upgrades, including the replacement of the inline skating rink with a Flowrider surfing simulator and increasing her tonnage to 138,194 GT. The ship’s godmother is American athlete Jackie Joyner-Kersee
We offer this beautiful museum quality Explorer of the Seas scale 1:350 for your collection. Our master craftsmen handcrafted this nicely detailed model from scratch using drawings/original plans and other finest woods and material to build this model. Also, we use the plank-on-frame construction method which is similar to the building of the actual ship. Furthermore, we applied multi-layered paint to match the color of the real ship. Each model requires hundreds of hours to finish then must go through a demanding quality control process before leaving the workshop. She is mounted on a solid wood base and ready to display. It’ll make a perfect gift for home or office decorator, boat enthusiast, or passionate collector.
