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

We went on this cruise for our anniversary. I did not see an option to put the reason for the cruise and no one ever asked. Overall we enjoyed ourselves, however it would have been much better if the staff at the port in Miami was better ... 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

My parents live near Port Canaveral so when I was planning a visit we jumped at this cruise which was very reasonable. Getting onboard was simple and quick. We went up to Windjammer to grab lunch while we waited for our room to become ... Read more

When asked "why did I choose this ship", I would have to say the value of the cruise and the itinerary. I was on this ship about 20 years ago when it was called the Nordic Empress and now since the ship was totally refurbished ... 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

When asked why did I choose this cruise it was simple.....PRICE. It was too good to pass up! Sure, I had read the negative reviews and heard some horror stories, but I knew one thing. Any cruise is what YOU make of it. I can always ... Read more

Great trip. Awesome staff. Super Excursions. A TEN! Weather forced a change in destination while onboard. Captain diverted us from the Keys to Nassau. Turned out we had 100% great weather, super excursions and a tremendous cruise. ... Read more

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

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
