I just wanted a four night cruise to reach Diamond level and found this perfect to fit the bill. The smallest ship in the fleet was very clean and comfortable. It has a certain charm about it that reminded me of our first cruise. Service ... Read more

Short review - You get what you pay for! We didnt pay the top RCI dollars for their mega ships so we cant complain too much about it. Its a very small ship and maybe the worst of the RCI family. If you don't like to walk too far and don't ... Read more

We were going on the Empress with no expectations. Some really bad reviews made us think we would be entering a horrible ship. Not at all. It was a step back in time. The intimate feeling of the ship is wonderful. We are Diamond Plus and ... Read more

Majesty is the third Sovereign class ship we have sailed on, and the only one still in the Royal Caribbean fleet. We found a week that suited our schedule, and a cruise that suited our budget and travel time. We first booked an Oceanview ... Read more
