Had no real issues with the ship itself. Outside of ship terrible rusted and in dire need of attention. We are Diamond Plus and sailed the Enchantment many years ago. The interior seems fairly updated except for a few areas of carpet. ... Read more

I wanted to see Nassau. I went on the Enchantment in October 2016 and because of Hurricane Matthew we didn't visit the original itinerary. We ended up in Cozumel, which was fine. THIS TIME we did keep to itinerary and I had a wonderful ... Read more

I have 25 cruises under my belt and usually sail Freedom Class, and Oasis or Allure. But I wanted an inexpensive getaway and this fit the bill. It was a quick cheap escape from the cold weather so I wasn't expecting much. I know its an ... Read more

We had an opportunity to jump on this cruise on short notice. We were in Orlando taking care of family, had extra time to vacation and wanted to try cruising- just a 4 day-M-F available. This was a perfect first cruise. The time of year ... Read more

I chose this particular cruise because it was an affordable way to get away from the dreary winter and take my mother on a vacation. Having cruised quite a bit, previously, I was at first surprised at how SMALL my window view stateroom ... Read more

Last minute winter getaway for a friend and me. Could not ever get the Royal Caribbean online app to work. Website not all that helpful. The Empress of the Seas is a smaller, older ship, it did not feel crowded and we rarely waited ... Read more

First time and last time with Royal Caribbean if this ship is anything to go by. Old, dated, I am guessing used as a training ship for crew, especially the chefs and entertainment department as entertainment was simply poor bordering on ... Read more

The pressure to "spend more" on this or that was all encompassing. Embarkation and disembarkation went fairly smoothly. Our cabin steward Irwan Sanusio was outstanding as were our usual dining room waiters, Joseph and Rian. Shows ... Read more

The Grandeur of the Seas is a nice ship. Not a great ship. Well, it’s 20 years old. And though there have been updates, its showing its age. Although not a major distraction, I did note a large rust stain in my cabin window. It ... Read more

To say this ship was a huge disappointment is an understatement. First I will start with the pros as there were a few. Chelsea O' Toole at the spa was amazing. Super sweet and went out of her way to help us relax. Next was our awesome ... Read more

We chose this cruise because Triple A was having a special that included transportation to the port and the cruise was very reasonably priced. I was skeptical, as the ship was older and smaller than we had previously cruised on, and with ... Read more

I first sailed on Empress out of NYC in 2001 just before 911. Being back on board filled me with mixed emotions. Overall, it is a really quaint ship. I must admit that I missed the lack of activities for Crown and Anchor members. There ... Read more
