We cruise 3-5 times every year: this was a perfect long weekend for us to get away from home and to allow my wife to be served meals rather than prepare them. We had no other activities scheduled, so Nassau was a great weekend sojourn. ... Read more

The crew was great!! Always smiling and willing to help! The food in the windjammer buffet was terrible. I was so disappointed! The main dining room wasn't good either, but the cookies were good. There were mostly Spanish channels and the ... Read more

I chose this cruise as an introductory cruise for my daughter. She and my husband had never cruised before. Embarkation went smoothly. I've cruised out of Port Everglades and it was a bit of a pain. We sailed through here pretty ... Read more

This was my first cruise on Royal Caribbean. I enjoyed and would do another one with this cruise line due to the level or service we received. I am not sure if our service was better due to us being in a Junior Suite. I loved our Junior ... Read more

Looking for a short weekender to celebrate birthdays, so we went with another couple on this cruise. We knew it was an old ship, so now worries there. Was a little leary as I read reviews here about sewage, but NOTHING like that ... Read more

This was one of RCCL's "casino players" cruise, and my first three day short cruise. First, the main dining room food and service was very good. Second, the bar and beverage service by the pool was EXTREMELY poor! RCCL ... Read more

I chose this cruise for the price and the location. I was taking my son on a weekend getaway. For the first time, I booked the JR suite on the 10th deck and it was fabulous. Plenty of room for the two of us. Big sliding glass door and ... Read more

Like everyone else, I was concerned because of all the negative reviews. No need to worry, this ship as well as everything that goes with it, was fine (and quite honestly was not really different from any other cruise I've experienced, ... Read more

Ship departure was over two hours delayed. Food was not good at all. People on ship were rude and disrespectful. Ship is very old and outdated. Beds and sheets were comfortable...that was the only bright spot. I won't cruise on RCCL ... Read more

Took Empress of the Seas to Coco Cay and Key West for a 4 night quick cruise. Empress is the smallest ship in Royal Caribbean's fleet. It was the first ship we had ever cruised on some 24 years ago, and we were doing a "retro" ... Read more

Embarkation was a nightmare due to maintenance on the AC on-board the ship. Royal Caribbean made up for it with a credit to our account. Food was ok. Not much changed in the Main Dining room options except for maybe one different entree ... Read more

This was our fourth RCCL cruise, sixth cruise overall. We've been on the Mariner OTS, the Oasis and the Allure. We were looking for a short (five day) cruise to celebrate our 30th anniversary. Unfortunately, neither the Oasis nor the ... Read more

I choose this cruise because the deal was good, but we did not get the ocean view we paid for. The view was obstructed by life boats. The staff were great and the cabins were clean, but small. Dining room dinner was good and servers in ... Read more

We really enjoyed this cruise. It's the smallest Royal Caribbean ship so it doesn't have all the bells and whistles of the big boats, but it's beautiful, comfortable, has great service and for the price is amazing. The new renovations ... Read more

Please do not cruise on this ship. I had not cruised in about 12 years and the service has gone down more than I could have ever imagined. The Majesty of the Seas ship was way outdated and unclean. My party had 3 cabins and we had ... Read more

I have been on over forty (40) cruises on a variety of ships but mostly with Royal Caribbean. The cruise on the Empress of The Seas was by far the worse cruise experience ever. The ship is old, rusty, small with ceiling tiles falling from ... Read more

I chose this cruise because it was an affordable, quick getaway as a solo traveler. Embarkation and disembarkation were swift and uneventful. Even at embarkation those folks who weren't gold and up members didn't have a very long line ... Read more
