This was my first cruise, so I don't really have a basis of comparison, but I enjoyed it enough to be planning my next cruise. The atmosphere was lovely. I did not feel the need to dress up everyday but people weren't slumming around in ... Read more

This was a fun get away for 4 couples who have known each other for almost 20 years. We arrived at Port Canaveral around 1pm and proceeded to our check-in which went very smoothly. The lines were long, but everyone was in a great mood. ... Read more

After booking this cruise, I started seeing some negative reviews concerning the age of the ship, etc., so I was a little apprehensive that maybe I had made a mistake choosing this ship as our first cruise. I need not have worried. Yes, ... Read more

The ship is small and expect not to be able to use the pool due to the large number of people and children and very small pool. The Staff is excellent and will meet any expectation you have . If you are inactive and only want the shows ... Read more

Enjoyable cruise for my wife and I. But, not up to RCCL's usually very high standards. The ship is older (1996) than most in the fleet. However, it was very well maintained. Embarkation and debarkation were both quick and easy. The ... Read more

Empress was better than I anticipated. After reading some of the initial responses I was very nervous about taking this ship. Let me start by saying it is a smaller ship so you can't expect big ship things. Your trip we be what you make of ... Read more
