This was our very first trip, and we had no complaints at all. Embarkation and Debarkation went very smooth. We arrived at the port around 1115am, and were able to get through in about 15-20 minutes. Not sure if that's normal, but that ... Read more

We were with siblings and in-laws and it was an amazing group. We had a blast because we all enjoy each others company and we never get to do things like this. The ship was old and ragged looking. I couldn't find a single employee that ... Read more

I don't know where to start, I have been on many cruises and this was by far the worst. ALWAYS CHECK YOUR BILLS THROUGHOUT YOUR CRUISE. They over charge you and then when they are suppose to give you a credit they actually charge you ... Read more

I've been cruising for a long time. We've been on the larger ships and the smaller ships and really prefer the smaller ships (they feel more like cruising and not shopping in a "mall" - just my opinion!). It's been awhile since ... Read more

RCI is a very reliable line to cruise. However, in July we happened to select a cruise for our 45th wedding anniversary and happened upon a great deal for a 5 day cruise on Empress of the Seas. The ship is top shape. Small and friendly, ... Read more
